Wouldn't that be less risky for you? Good luck in any case!
Yes, renting is what we're going to do initially. Still, so many places to look at. At least we have a bit more time than the last move - I had to find a house in a week, a hundred miles away from where we were living (another move to place we barely knew - a pattern is starting to emerge!) whilst my wife was visiting her relatives in her home country (guessing what she would like
), and then arrange the move within four weeks because her new employer wanted her to star work a month early! At least, since that happened only last year, at least we should be able to pack easily!
I can't complain that life is dull, though!
