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

Make a trip here first and look around, meet some local people, meet some real estate agents. Research a lot before you move.

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

I live in a 3000 sq. ft. 3 bed. 4 bath apartment with security

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

Talked to several real estate agents
