If you are thinking about moving to UK, cost of living in probably a key consideration. Expats commented about the cost of housing...

"The average cost of housing in England is generally high, with house prices in London and the South East the most expensive in the country. In the rest of the country, house prices are generally more affordable, but still far beyond the means of many people," said another expat in UK.

"Housing costs are much higher here if you take exchange rates into affect. In US dollars a 600 square foot apartment in our home country would cost $500 while our flat here in US dollars is $1300US. To purchase a 1600 Sq foot new home in our home city would cost $125,000US while a home here for the same size would cost $365,000US. Incredibly discouraging," wrote a member who made the move to Abingdon, UK.
