Yes, no, maybe

House hunting means that we've been driving back and forth across town this afternoon going to open homes. We looked at a couple of places on Avonhead, and were surprised to find that there's about a $50,000 premium for that suburb. Houses that had non-sliding Ranchsliders, peeling paint, and scruffy 70s medallion wallpaper were over $400,000 - they'd be pushing it to get $300-350,000 in other suburbs.

So we're back to our main choice - the lovely house just round the corner, but we really can't make an offer until we've talked to the bank - and by then we'll be getting ready to go to Sydney for 5 days, so we'll have trouble organising anything.

I just hope that it's still available in two weeks when we get back - but if not, c'est la vie.
