Jul 21, 2015


Scotland

A Michigan expat engaged to a Scottish man talks about moving to Aberchirder, Scotland -- the high cost of housing, visa requirements and more.

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Aberchirder

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

Am in process, so....that is to be seen.

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

Cannot advise on that since I am still in mid-process. The spousal visa requirements are rugged and non-refundable so am tasking this very slow so I do not end up 'donating' a pile of cash to the UK government.

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

He resides in council housing, and no, an expat does not qualify unless they are a citizen.

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

My fiance is a Scot national and resides there.

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

They are equivalent to the condo fees I am paying. A three bedroom house, though, in Foggie is far more expensive than in Michigan and is more representative of East Coast US prices.
