    house deposit ?

    LMI ain't that bad. 5k - 10k if I recall correctly. Craigie mainly older houses often 3x1 or 4x1. Beldon for 500k a decent 4x2 that isn't too modern/updated on decent block of land. I thought padbury was a bit more expensive than Beldon. Plenty of 4x2s there as well. When we bought in Beldon 2 years ago we sidn't think the price difference of houses in padbury were justified.
  2. Just check realestate.com.au, thete should be plenty I reckon.

    house deposit ?

    Imho don't run before you can walk Take your time figuring out what's wise in regards to relocating (or not). Anyway to get on topic; We've sold our 4x2 with heates pool, max premium solar panels and huge patio in Beldon for 535k a few weeka ago. It was one of the more expensive houses in Beldon while it was for sale. Depending on what you want/need 500k - 535k would be plenty. If you want a 3x1 you may go towards 399k. I don't know, as we were in a different market. Lending is tighter I heard. Frienda boughts their first home last year with an LMI because they didn't make the 20%. No personal experience there either. Ideally it's 20%, so around 100k.

    Visa system a joke

    That's a terrible situation to be in Jason. I thought RRVs where just a formality. Like applying for a holiday visa. Pretty much instantly. Isn't it because of what @ali says, the residence requirements that make it take longer? I would call immi again and speak to somwone else. Sometimes a second person has more experience or different view on things.

    Looking for School Recommendations

    Padbury is a good suburb, so I guess the peimary schools are good as well. You are bound by the catchment area of the school and where you are going to live. Is this concept the same as in the UK? (I'm not a pommie so I don't know if that concept is new or familiar for you)

    Cost of putting a pool in

    We are speaking to riverina. Sure a few years down the track and without the robotic cleaner we are quotes 32k! Mind you, some extras: upgraded chlorinator (+400), upgraded pump (+400), extra pool light (+550), higher grade pipes (+250), hand digging due to lack of entry (+1750), spa blower (+1000), heat pump(+2200). Hmm that might explain thw peice difference heh.

    fish n chips

    Why do pommies miss the fish n chips while being in oz? Plenty of shops. Aren't they good in their opinion? I never had F&C until moving here, so csn't compare
  9. As this is (probably!) not state specific I would ask on Pomsinoz.com as well. There is/was quite an active group of people who moved back who can hopefully advise you.
  10. @pegg definitely same area, we like it here. Different suburb though, 5 minutes down the road towards the regent estate (South Wanneroo). A bonus for us is that we walk a few times a week at Yellagonga. We can get their walking now instead of taking the car ? are you coming to help us carry some boxes on settlement day? ?
  11. Thanks @Warnbro appreciated. I'll report back when it's behind us. (If we're still alive ?)
  12. We are awaiting mortgage approval for the house we want to buy. But already getting nervous for the settlement day! This is the first time we sell a property we own before moving. In the past we've always rented. That means we usually rented the place for 2 weeks longer after we got the key of the new property already. How on earth did you manage it logistically to do everything in 1 day? We even have a family member visiting us during that time ugh... and we have a baby and 2 not-so-friendly dogs which have to stay separates from each other. Seems like a huge challenge.

    Don't you have to work regional as well? I would focus on that first as that is likely to be the biggest challenge.
