An Expat Talks about Moving to
What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.
I should have brought more summer clothes, a good moisturiser with a sunblock and more photographs.
I can't think of anything I wish I left behind.
What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?
Use the internet to study the areas before you go.
What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?
It was a small modular home on the banks of Okanagan Lake. It's not a typical home for the area although there are quite a few areas in Kelowna with this type of low cost housing.
How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?
My husband's employer organised the accommodation.
Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?
What we got for our money made it worth every cent. We were paying $750.00 per month and had our own beach.
Averages in the area vary depending on the type of homes. House prices range from around $150,00 to around $3 million.
