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

"The cost of housing in Jamaica is generally moderate, with a wide range of prices depending on the size, location and type of property. Costs can range from inexpensive one-bedroom apartments to luxury villas with ocean views. Rent for two-bedroom apartments in Kingston can typically start at around $500USD per month and can reach up to $1500USD in more desirable areas. Outside of Kingston, rent can be much lower, with some rural areas offering apartment rentals for as low as $200USD per month," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Jamaica.

"Like any other place it all depends on where you're living. My daughter rents a brand new two bedroom low rise in Kingston for $1100usd...she previously rented a large 2 bedroom in Beverly Hills (Kingston) for $900usd. When she first moved back she rented a townhouse in Montego Bay (gated community) for $1000usd. Nice housing is quite affordable and can be found...connect with a realtor," commented one expat who made the move to Jamaica.
