Yep you can me to the list. Although we haven't got our visa yet our house has been up for a year now. We have had a few sale agreed's that fell through and have had to drop the price by a good bit. The property market in Ireland isnt going to well and at this stage I starting to panic

As bad as this sounds it makes me feel better that there is not just me wating to sell and vice versa i suppose, its so annoying when you drive past houses that say sold!!

and by the same company who are supposed to be selling your house lol

its just a waiting game and by the looks of it i aint alone

Had 1 viewing in 11 months
Slashed the price to basically cover what we owe on the mortgage......may have about £5k left over
The way we look at it is we can't go to Oz if we haven't sold the house.

Unhappy Re: who else is waiting to sell there house....

Add me to the list put house up for sale last July ,that was before getting Visa ,got Visa November and went to Oz to validate the visa ,now back in UK trying to sell house .We have reduced the price by £30,000::. Have had some viewers , but most of them came for a nose around.Does anybody out there want a 4/5 bedroom bungalow with 1/2 acre for £320,000 ???? still we keep hoping ,and as the dollar to £ rate is no so good at the moment ,we are not reducing any more ,best of luck to all Trainman
