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

Spend as much time prior to moving as possible in different months of the year to experience the seasonal changes. Also, try to stay as near as your choice property if not in/on it to experience everything that will be around you. Roosters crowing, dogs barking, pigs grunting, early street cleaners or whatever can make a real difference, good and bad.

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

A large old Colonial house, right on the main street in town, just across the street from the ocean. This house is one of only 2 in this town. Most of the expats live either on the hillside or just out of town

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

I would stay in different parts of the town each time I came to get a feel for the different sights, sounds etc.
