Hi

Glad to hear you're coming over :)
For accommodation you can try bostaddirekt to rent, or hemnet to buy.

I found Numbeo is quite good at estimating the general cost of living, outside accommodation.
However, if you have any specific questions I'm happy to help.

Take care

Hi,

I saw the living expenses as mentioned by other members in 2015. However, wanted to know if the current cost of living is the same or has it hiked. Also , it would be very helpful if you could tell me what would be the living expenses in a month for a single person assuming a decent living standard.

Thanks in advance.
Zafar.
