After 2.5 years away, Lisa and I are both heading back home to Wellington! This is a permanent move for us, whilst we’ve enjoyed our time in other places, this is certainly home for us and where we want to base ourselves long term.
At this stage we expect to be in a position to buy a house in Wellington in the next 3-6 months – the government forcing 20% minimum deposits for new loans has certainly been a frustration, but we’re in a position to just scrape in at the price point we’re after.
Meanwhile we need to find a place to live for those months – interested in hearing from anyone keen to lease a room to a couple, or know of any small apartments for lease, or even a longer term house sitter being needed anywhere. Naturally we’re trying to keep the rent low whilst we finish finalising the deposit.
Really looking forwards to being home and seeing everyone again – we get back on 28th March, so once we’ve settled in, will start lining up catch ups with people! :-)
