Hey congrats bago!

Affordable housing is kinda subjective. We moved to San Fran where the housing is very expensive, but the higher salaries more than compensated for it.

In fact, as a percentage of our income we're paying (slightly) less for our downtown SF apartment than we were for our flat in Mt Roskill, Auckland. Granted, it was a 3 bedroom house with off street parking for 3 cars in Auckland vs a 1 bedroom apartment with no parking in SF.

The approach that worked for us, was pick some cities that you think would be cool to live in, then research the housing costs vs the average income for your kinda work, and work in the commute times / costs etc.

What kind of work would you be looking for?

The application costs vary too, the medical can be expensive, depending on how many of the vaccinations you need, If you can show proof of all the required vaccinations you can save yourself some money.

The medical fee was about NZ$410 each from the medical center in Remuera, Auckland (there aren't many to chose from)

I think the US Consulate processing fee is US$330 each (don't believe the NZ consulate website's fee of US$420, it's an old figure)
