When it comes to finding a property in the USA, prices are influenced by location and demand. Your choice of location will be influenced by the place of work and surrounding amenities. The local estate agents will be able to assist if you were looking to rent or buy the property.


America has an excellent public transport service; trains, buses, subways, cable-cars, and streetcars. 

A car is not totally necessary although most people do choose to own one. The roads and highways are well kept and easy to navigate. The cost of fuel in America is reasonably priced, compared to other parts of the world. Most people who already have a driver’s license in their home country can drive in America provided the license is valid. Driving requirements may vary from state to state and should always be checked.


Overall, America is an amazing place to be an expat. Given its diversity and size, you can visit a huge variety of natural and historical sites, have fun at theme parks, take road trips and experience all different cultures.
