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

Work with a good realtor. Talk to people and look at websites. Look for "security" first and foremost. Gated community feels safest if you are alone.

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

I live in a gated community with a pool. It's a townhouse style condo and the complex of 20 units is made up almost entirely of expats.

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

Saw a variety of places in the West on a prior visit and gave realtor an idea of what I liked. Recommendation from local contacts was to look out West as traffic from East into town was terrible and job was in town.

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

About the same in terms of rent. Of course, in Bahamas everything comes furnished. You won't find that in Connecticut. ELECTRICITY here is ridiculously expensive.
