Re: Can we buy a house????

I think another problem is that there aren't that many properties on the market - though from looking around there seems to be lots cranes so more seem to be coming on the market

Also have a think about multifamily houses - if you are bringing over all the money from the UK you may be able to buy one of these and can rent out the other house / appartments to help pay your mortgage (rates are lower here than in the UK and its beneficial for your tax rate not to pay off your mortage). Do speak to a lawyer though to get all the info on this (you have to live in one of the appartments etc)

We're from the UK and bought too so I can understand where you are coming from - but do make sure you are here for a while as properties do take a while to sell
