Hello, I am an American who wishes to move to Jerusalem.
What neighborhoods are the best to live in for Expats? I am not rich, so my budget is not very high. However I work hard, and I do not want to live in a slum or rundown area either. I want to live somewhere that is safe, and that has a decent quality of life.
Where to live? Where to avoid?
Hopefully some of our local expat experts will be able to give you more guidance on this, but in the meantime, have a look at our guide to accommodation in Israel for an idea of what kind of properties you will find in the country.
Have you considered moving to another city in Israel?
How do I get a local expat guide to answer please? Lol.
I've considered moving to other cities, but I really want to stay close to Jerusalem. Are there any suburbs (small cities near Jerusalem) that would be nice to live in?
