    Hi me husband & 2 boys (5 & 1) have our 175 visa we visited perth in may for 2 weeks so that we could validate our visas, we are planning on moving out to brisbane next august have had our house on the market for 18 months we have had a buyer lined up for about a year but she has not been able to sell her house it's really frustrating, what i want opinions on is should we rent our house in the and just make the move or hold out for the sale of our house any thoughts would be greatly appreciated we so want to move out. Our plan is also for my husband to come out first and find a job and a place to live and we will follow approx 3 months later. Also any info on living in brisbane we were looking at regents park and surrounding areas hubby is in it (firewall security) and wants to be close to brisbane cbd. Any opinions on areas schools and any general information would be greatly appreciated. Sorry if i have wittered on.

    The only issue you'll have with renting is to make sure you have a break clause in there - so you can get them out in case of a sale.
    Also, will the rent cover the cost of the mortgage? Will you be able to afford to move out without selling? If so, personally I'd keep the house anyway - investment or 'security net' in case Oz doesn't work out.

    It is very hard to advise on areas as our own personal priorities always get in the way of our recommendations and every suburb has its advocates but I don't think Regents Park is a particularly good choice for a CBD commuter and I would guess that the local govt schools there need to be checked out very thoroughly but maybe someone closer can advise with accurate information.
