Hi Scott, |
Thanks for the reasurance. As it is, we are late starters and have a two year old. So I guess she wouldn't have too much trouble adjusting. She has plenaty of cousins to play with at home.
: It doesn't look like anyone is going to answer
: your question with experience of overseas
: house renting. But, as with all rental
: properties, it all depends on your tenants.
: There are those who are heavenly and those
: who come from, shall we say, down under.
: (You know... Australians...)
: But, the other half of your question is
: easy. There are thousands of people who have
: moved back to Ireland in their forties. The
: biggest problem for this age bracket is
: their kids who have to adjust to school not
: as young kids growing up in a system, but as
: After a bit of worry and dislocation, the
: kids almost always make their own way. Like
: adults, some love it, some take a while to
: adjust. Read the pages in the free site or
: full site about Schools, check out some
: links, the teens can facebook their Irish
: peers and get some idea.
: Remember, you have to be here three years
: and paying taxes in the EU before the kids
: qualify for the exemption from paying
: tuition for college. Though how long this
: will last is anyone's guess. It was due to
: go this year, but pollitical horse trading
: saved it for a bit.
: But, the Irish government is in such
: financial trouble, I'd expect it won't be
: around all that longer.

: Has anyone moved to Ireland and rented their

: that renting out results in devaluation of

: P.S. Also wondering if anyone has moved home
: in their 40's. Looking for some hope that it
: is possible!
