Hi Everyone, I am new to this forum and really appreciate how much info there is available here. We are a long way off from moving to BA, but I am currently trying to test the waters, seeing how realistic the vision is. I will be telecommuting, so I will make US$, but my husband (who is Colombian, but fluent in english as well) will be looking for work down there.
We will be visiting BA in December for 3 days, then off to Bariloche for a few days. In the next couple of years we will be trying to visit often to connect with people and scope out the area. The biggest questions that I am hoping to have specifically answered are:
1. Can someone please list some of the private schools that are not $20k a year and are "good schools"?
2. Are there any companies that offer international mortgage loans to US citizens? If so who? If not how in the world does the average joe come up with that kind of money?!
3. I can see that the apartment prices are quoted ALOT higher for expats, which is disheartening. My husbands native language is spanish and I am hoping we will have the opportuniy to talk with owners and work out long term rentals. Is this realistic?
4. We have 2 kids, what are the best areas to raise kids in?
5. Do most apts allow pets?
Okay, I'll stop there. I could probably ask a thousand more. Your input is greatly appreciated. Erin
