Given the current market, if I were selling our house it'd be on the market already. There are a couple of threads full of discussions from those unable to sell. We're renting ours, have a tenant and are currently in an apartment until we fly (booked last night to fly on the 24th of October, having confirmed the date with work).

Based on current visa grant rates we should get ours somewhere between October and January but they could speed up processing or even slow down again

We have already given (informal) notice at work to finish around the end of december but our employers are being very flexible with us so the big decision is when to put the house on the market

Welcome, Robert C to the April Thread.

We applied 2 April. We are thinking similar timeline to you - visas granted October to December. If the visa comes in October, we'll try to get the house rented and go right away - or maybe OH will fly out alone. If Visa arrives November or later, we'll wait for spring 2009.

In the meanwhile, we're doing home improvements too. We've decided we'll rent - at least for a year.

OH is working as a contractor so has complete flexibility to go whenever he's ready to.

Unofficial Visa Update
1 August Friday

1 November Applicant
1 January Applicant


For the Week - 14 Visas Granted and counting

There have been 83 Visas Granted (and reported on this site) for July 2008

My comments about July: At the beginning of July, we were excited about December applicants receiving COs. 9 July saw the first December Visa Grants. Which was very exciting.

January 2008 applicants started to receive Visas 16th of July. We've really come a long way.

I hope next week we start to see some February applicants receive COs!!
