I am interested in moving to the USVI, preferably STT or STX, because I know St John is expensive. I have seen apartments in the $1000 range. Are those in bad areas, or can you find something in that range in a decent area?

STX is far more affordable than STT and STJ. STT is more affordable than STJ. However, if you live in STT, the Northside and West are the nicest areas to live, imho. Those areas are cooler and less crowded.

The East (country) is actually the most populated and has plenty traffic during rush hour and weekends.

$1000 is fine for a decent apartment. In fact, you can sometimes find something decent for $850, depending on what you are looking for and whether the place is furnished or not.

thank you for your response. You've been very helpful.I'll definitely try and take a pre-move trip and explore those areas.
I'll probably be following up with more questions. I currently live in South Florida. I've been reading about how expensive it is down there in the V.I., but the average rent here is about the same, $1000-$1500. I know this may be a general question, but for a family of three(2 parents with 1 child), what is an income that we could survive on, realistically?
Where does the expense come in? From food costs, utilities? Just wondering...
