Im planning on moving to Washington and live a couple of years(Maybe forever) and have some (many) questions.

1.What is the average rent prize on appartments in Washington.(about 40-50Squaremeters). of course a decent area .i pay about 1200$ in oslo

2.How much to buy an appartment in same size.(Costs about US700.000-800.000$ in Oslo)

3. And if i want to buy can i get a loan in US or do i have to take up a loan in Norway.

4. How is the job market in Washington? is it easy to get jobs there as a chef or cook (is educated cook).

5.Whats the average salary per. month.(i earn about 3500$a month wich is 20$an our)

6. Were do i apply for an work permit. (US embassy?)

7. How much does it cost too live in Washington(food, taxi, subway, electrisity, etc.) in average a month.

8.and lots of other questions.......

not there yet...we are moving there soon to rockville,maryland 15 minutes from DC rent for a 2 bedroom(3-room flat) is $1500 what we have lined up you should be able to find in that range.

taxes are not what they are in norway @30% of your check

have really no idea on cook/chef salary 20 an hour probably in nicer restuarants

work permit you better check w/ us embassy in oslo before coming here thats for sure.

owning an apt./condo you should be able to get a posh place for that price

thats all i know not there yet.

welkommenn i think parents are of norwegian decent
