We put our deposit down on Saturday (yesterday), signed everything so there is no going back. The titles dont come out until Novemberish, (early/late/mid.... who knows!) so we just have to sit back and wait now.
We didn't end up getting the 600m2 block, that one sold just a couple of days before we enquired, instead we went for one that is 2 doors away, 540m2. The only difference is the width of the block, the backyard is still going to be the same depth, just the width is a little smaller. It was down to a choice of 2 in the end... I hope we made the right decision. This one has no easement at the back, close to a park and a footpath out the front.... The kids will no longer have to ride their bikes on the road.
The estate is nice with a brook running through the middle, as you can see from the photo.
The property directly behind us is owned by 'Stocklands', so I guess they will be developing it at some time. Will have to make enquires, but who too???
