An Expat Talks about Moving to Mexico City, Mexico

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

Mexico City

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

I wish I had brought with me all family & friends photo albums. They are of great help whenever you are crossing through the cultural shock. It helps by reminding you of friends and family.

I also wish I had brought my stereo, dvd, etc since Mexico has the same electric outlet as USA. The last but not less important thing I wish I had brought with me is literature about Mexico (touristic sites, etc). since you can find them in Mexico but they are very expensive.

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

If you are lucky enough to have your company pay for a Relocation company you wont have any problems since they know very well were you should live. But if this is not the case, I recommend you get advice from someone in your company to recommend areas close to work that meet your budget. Once you know the names of the areas you can then serach on the local newspapers for apartments.

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

Apartments are the most recommended housing for expats. One reason is security, and also you can make friends easier on the social areas like swiming pools, tennis courts, etc.

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

My company assisted us by hiring a Relocation company. In Mexico City it is very important to know where you will work in order to find your home. Commuting time can be terrible if you do not consider this important issues.

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

Mexico City is an expensive city to live in. I am lucky to have my company pay for it, but to give an idea: A three bedroom apartment can go from US$2,500 - 5,000 per month plus utilities.
