Hi everyone,

I live in Southern California and my wife and I looking to relocate to Miami or Fort Lauderdale because I have family there and that would allow me to be closer to Europe (most of our families live there).

We like it here in Southern California but are seriously considering FL because it is closer to Europe (distance, time difference) compared to the West Coast and we have family in FL. Also, my wife loves warm tropical weather year-round (so do I actually) and CA is sunny but not always warm. Rain does not bother us as long as it stays warm.

I do not have a job offer from FL so I am looking for jobs from here in CA and if I get an offer,we will move.

I have a few questions first:

How much is rent for a 2 bedroom/2bath condo in a decent area? How mush for a 1bedroon/1bath in a decent area? I do not mind driving up to 45 minutes to work. What are some areas we can consider in Miami and Fort Lauderdale?

I have been to Miami once and I found it very useful to speak Spanish ( my wife and I are fluent in Spanish). Is it an advantage in the workplace to speak Spanish?

Thanks a lot for your help!!

Hey ... You will probably get lots of response if you post on the Miami forum:
Good luck!
