A massive turn for us may mean we need to contact some estate agents in cardiff very soon. he was recently approached by his boss about a huge opportunity for him after a recent expansion into Europe. They have been talking about this for ages and finally a few months ago it all started to come together with them buying a business based in Cardiff.
The big move for them then went from talk of this expansion to talk of staffing and opportunities and Ben came home excited a few weeks ago after a detailed meeting with his boss about a senior management position within this new market. I thought it would turn out to be a bit of a pipe dream but over the last weeks this has been gathering pace until last week when he was offered a job on the board of directors.
We have a shortlist of estate agents to help our search in Cardiff
With all this exciting stuff going on we are starting to think seriously about the move and how this will affect the kids. We have made a shortlist of estate agents and have spoken to them all over email to start to build a picture up of the ones we will meet up with very soon.
We have began our search for a property and one thing that did surprise us is the cost of property in the UK compared with the states. We will of course be getting a good re-settlement package but we still may have to downsize a little or even rent for a while as the prices are so much higher in the UK.
As well as estate agents to think about there is the rabbits and their life in Cardiff
There is so much to think about and do at the moment as well as one of the biggest decisions we have ever made to finalise there is the house search, school check and all the pets to consider. We are so fond of the rabbits and whilst I guess we could re-home them in the US we really do want to take them with us for our new adventure. We have a bit of conflicting advise on this but I think we will take them all as I think they are as much a part of the family as anyone and I don’t think I could leave them behind regardless of the expense etc.
With so much to do I had better get back to my planning and make sure we don’t forget anything. Big week next week and an amazing trip to Wales is planned and we are all really excited first up a bit of house hunting with http://www.pmpremier.co.uk
