An Expat Talks about Moving to Moscow, Russia

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

Moscow

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

Make sure your company pays!

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

2 room furnished appartment outside the city center, but inside the city. I pay for my own housing. Most expats get a (large) budget from their company and thus rent an appartment in the citycenter or a house outside the city.

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

I chose to live as close to the office as possible. My colleagues helped me by giving advise and transporting me to some appartments to check them out and helping me negotiate.

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

Higher, mainly because it is a furnished appartment. I pay $350 a month. I know of many people (for who their company is) paying $1200 or even $5000 a month.
