What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?
A top floor apartment of 1,850 square feet with two terraces totalling about 400 square feet. It is not typical because top floor apartments are very hard to find.
Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?
Housing costs - higher than the "average" in the USA; the "average" cost of housing for a three-bedroom apartment would be about $2,000 per month
