Me and my FI have had a few talks, and he is considering a move
to Minnesota for us and our little family, which is me, our son, and our
We live across the pond. I am not American. Neither is he. But we think it would be
good experience for us and more options for my son when he is older in terms of education (out of state or in state). Since we will both transfer for jobs – we will have a combined income above 100K. Is this normal? We checked with his boss and he said the appr. salary for him in USD. He will get more in US than where we are now.
Work would help him getting green cards/working visas etc. And on my side aswell. That is not a problem, we are just scoping things out for now to perhaps try and try to route our goals the coming years.
My questions for you girls:
How is it living in Minnesota? (We are both used to -30 celsius in the winters, that is not our problem. We are more curious of quality of life, cultural and social life etc. – we are very social people and love having dinner parties, alot of friends and many outings. Nature is very important to us and our son)
Which areas are good/bad for families (Minneapolis), and are there any good schools around?
Also, we want to get a house really soon once we get settled in. We have already saved up a nice amount. We are planning to put away a chunk of money every month now until we know what we are going to do. Would we have issues getting a house/loan/mortgage, even if we have permanent contracts etc and we have a nice savings etc and can prove great credit scores? What would be the best step here?
I have done extensive research but I really trust the opinion and advice of the Bee.
Thanks for reading 🙂
