Perrysburg, Ohio

An expat who moved to Perrsyburg, Ohio for his job discusses the cost of living in Ohio. Due to the very high cost of healthcare in the US, he plans on returning to Europe when he retires. He advises other expats to find a job with health care benefits and relocation assistance before you move to the United States.

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Secure a job with health care benefits first and get relocation assistance. For retirees, move/stay in Europe due to health care costs. I do not plan to stay in the US when I retire.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

I live in a home surrounded with a large yard. I don't know any expats, nor where they live.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

I chose Perrysburg based on the proximity to work and shopping.

Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?

Housing prices depend on neighborhoods, size and condition of home, proximity to doctors, shopping and entertainment. Healthcare in the US is very expensive. Spain was cheaper to live in. US: higher wages, higher costs. Average home price for 2 people in a good neighborhood near Perrysburg, Ohio: $100,000 to $175,000.
