Mel, I have been looking at some fantastic houses in Germany, my youngest goes there to get wine for her partners wine business and Say's its so clean and like fairy land in parts!!!!
 
However, we need to make it easy for work not harder, we both are able to work here in UK if needed, we find it keeps us above the breadline but not sure about the language barrier if we moved, if I were younger or we both were retired it may be a different story, the other issue is as 2 of my 3 daughters are in Austrialia, if I move out the UK it would make visiting me even more a chore, at least they can visit other friends and relatives on the same trip back to Blighty!!!
Never mind, but thanks, the houses I saw were wonderful in Germany!!

So why not Oz or NZ for yourself then?  Just a thought!

The visiting kids IS an issue with us too....so know where you are comming from with that
As for work...we find living here is very cheap. Ground tax, for instance, is less than a tenth here of the council tax we used to pay on a smaller UK property. the Brit friend that lives here runs an internet based fire/heating supply company.

Womble, by the time we have sold up and paid for the move we would not have much money left at all, as my husband cannot drive as yet (just started again) he would find it hard to get work, he is a qualified Youth worker and no other skills so even harder quite possibly, I am getting nearer to retirement age but not old enough just yet and then I have a daughter in the UK,  and I would hate to leave her.
Then, lastly, I would be sad to re home our dogs, I also love it up here in Scotland, I may be odd but hate the heat, nothing better for me than a cold day with me wrapped up then home to hot food and a fire.....
If I emigrated I may just become an old women in a small isolated house but near my grandchildren, here, I am still old, but loads to keep me going and lots of dog walks and places to visit without the risk of Skin Cancer or being bitten......I would never rule it out but not at all keen......

HGL.I'm with you on the heat thing.  My youngest is spending a year in Australia on a working holiday permit.  He's right in the south but says he hates the heat and the flies.  And it's not even midsummer there yet.  Don't know how he's going to manage when the temperatures are even higher than the 34C which is is atm.   He's doing farm work so it out in it all day and says he often gets up at 4am to start work so he can be inside in the middle of the day.

 :wave: Well I got my husband out of Clackmannanshire and surrounding area and found the perfect place......at the perfect price...so its a waiting game...some more interest in this house, an Irish ex farmer is coming to view  :fc: soon, who knows? ??? ??? I am shocked that all the property under 150 is going so quick...almost like the sales are on..shame as that's the price we are aiming for.......the estate agents are shocked too as even houses that have been sticking are going..
Not saying anything until after the fat lady sings but if we do not get our fingers out the house we love will be gone.....its too perfect not to go.......the best bit was, as we viewed an elderly man went buy on his tricycle, he had a long beard, green wellies with a trailer load of logs...now I want to live where there is peeps like that...and I want a tricycle now too!!

Sandy,
I know you think its the perfect house but don't get too excited just yet. I had my share of let downs both buying and selling. Its a long haul so be patient.

 :thumbsup: :thumbsup: same here....we have lost a few over as well, thats how ended up in  Scotland, we rented until the house came on the market suitable, we also lost one in Cornwall twice...but its always ended up with us getting the best out the bunch........as long as we sell we are OK....I was  more than happy to find a perfect house as other wise I think my husband was after any that sort of fitted the bill, we now know more of what we want and where to aime to move to!! so...if we do not get this one, there are others!!

I know its not the UK but property round here IS CHEAP
Theres one on Mondays auction list starting at just under one thousand euros (Note NOT hundred thousand) Theres a 4/5 bed house in need of work but sound with water pwer, sewerage etc. The previous guy had started doing it up new windows etc. Plus a stone (granite) barn. Its on almost an acre with farm land along two bounderies.
The estate agent recomends pulling down the house and either converting the barn or rebuilding with all modern insulation/heating....that what most Germans would do.

Love the idea but, we need to stay in this area for work, depending on our sale, we will most prob have to make a cash purchase so no funds to do up or move abroad.My youngest went to Germany before Christmas and loved where they were, if some one gave us instant work, it would be a consideration..,thanks Mel
