What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

Secure a job first. Either have your work assist you with the house location, or plan several months of hotel time to "get the lay of the land". Don't be afraid to live in some of the smaller towns, much more character.

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

4 story "American style" house. I live in Brandenburg, most of my fellow expats live in Berlin, where they have apartments in tall complexes.

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

I lived in a pension (hotel) for 6 months until I knew enough to find a nice rental.
