yup

paying a mortgage payment on two homes can get old very quickly (if the seller has already moved)

Woah... we have an offer! Close on Sep 28th. We've made a counter, though, see what they come back with, but it'll be a mad rush to get everything sorted out by then!

Congrats Maz!! You lucky thing. Our house in the UK has been on the market for 6 weeks now, and we've only had 2 viewings!! Not a sausage in the last 4 weeks.... it's frustrating.
Still luckily we are still moving regardless... if you move on the 28th Sept I'll miss you by 4 days!!! We arrive at O'Hare on Oct 2nd!

All the best

Hi Keira! Thanks for your well wishes. I hope yours sells soon! Actually we're currently due to close on the 28th, but won't move for about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks after that. And we'll be disgustingly busy in that time, too! Though the movers will have been, which is nice.

Any americans care to comment on whether they have a cock in the kitchen (I've checked all our local friends, and without expection, they do!!)
How strange!

Portuguese people have the cock of Barcelos don't they?
