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

Very nice place for vacation, fishing and etc. But life for young person like me is a drama. Don't move here, I am going back to the US.

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

It is not typical but its better than any other. I am renting a "summer house" in the forest for 3500kr (about US600) The housing is horrible. I pay cheap because I can't afford a better place which is around 7000 - 10000 kr (1100 - 1800 dollars) per month (utilities not included)

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

Internet research and friends
