Hi there,

If you want me to give you FB groups you are best to join, please PM me.

Are you paying for the apt, or is your company, as TLV is very expensive.

Welcome to Israel : )

Hi Ziggy,

I hope by now you have found accommodation. If not, let me give you a few tips. Tel Aviv is flat and easy to walk. Lots of Tel Avivians use bicycles to get around. There are shared taxis and plenty of other public transport. There is plenty of inner city accommodation and depending on where your office is you might want to consider Ramat Gan or Givatayim. Rentals are high and developments with pools are few and far between. No worries, Tel Aviv has fabulous public and private beaches and swimming pools. Development that do have swimming pools and other amenities are top-end, super luxurious and expensive. If you want more info on living in Israel, the Israeli lifestyle, cost of living etc., I would like to refer you to www.anglo-list.com. You'll find everything an expat needs to know.

Join our FB groups too.

Good luck!

For 3 bedrooms of course it varies on where you will be living in TLV, but if I had to guess, I'd say around $5,500-8,000 shekel & you can do the conversion online from there to USD,

And remember that here they call the LR a room, so you will be looking for 4 rooms, not 3 as you want 3 bedrooms.

The people who will rip you off will see you coming a mile away, so I'd be careful & search for the place on your own & find a good agent who's honest (enough LOL) & let them negotiate down for you & make sure all the utilities are included.

You will want a lawyer to review your contract so there's no funny business in it. I can recommend a couple.

For your ISP, I recommend Bezeq (pronounced Bezek) over Hot (cable), as I just went thru the nightmare of dealing with Hot & losing tons of my time & money only to switch to Bezeq who is slower, but the line is cleaner so it's pretty much the same thing.

If you need any other help, please PM me.
