We had a company help us find housing. Only to find out that every place she took us was either her's or a friend. We moved 1 year later. We now live in an Apartment that is about 2500 sq foot. Great view, close to the shopping mal l, etc.

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

Thank god the company pays for it. The cost for an apartment is anywhere from $1,800 usd to over $5,000 usd. We are currently paying $3,800 per month utilities included
