An Expat Talks about Moving to
What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?
Rent, learn, then leave. Keep in mind I have no business interest here so I am just being honest. You can deposit money into your bank acct & if want to know your balance after your deposit they charge you a fee, service in Ecuador is terrible. Ask for a roll of quarters, & be refused! No reason, just be told no.
What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?
How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?
Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?
Lower cheap price, cheap quality, craftsmen are complete idiots!
