Moving to California: the complete guide

California : that enchanted place, on the border between reality and cinematic magic, a unique state that, every year, attracts many tourists from all over the world. But not only! In fact, in the last period, this country is distinguishing itself from many other colleagues to stars and stripes for the high level of people who have decided to buy a property in California, choosing it as a springboard for a new life. 

What do you say? Would you also like to know more about it? Are you curious to discover what drives all these people to radically change their perspectives and to realize the much praised ''American dream''? Well, then, you're in the right place! At Realigro, we have tailor-made a mini guide for you based on the information most sought after by our users. What will be the cost of living in California? Where should I buy a property? What are the most particular cities? And how is the current economic situation?

So, if you're ready, we can start immediately with our article, to discover California! 

                

Let's start with a small but important detail: the American bureaucracy.

In general, to stay in the United States, if your stay exceeds 90 days, you will need a passport and a visa (specific for each circumstance). 

Students need a tourist visa that allows them to enroll at school. otherwise we identify the Temporary worker Visa, or a work permit that is valid for 3 years and renewable only once. For those who wish to live and move permanently in the States, there is the famous Green Card, which has no limitations. Valid for 10 years, it can be renewed without problems.

Now let's insert the cost of living component: is living in California worthwhile? 

Let's start by saying that this country really has a lot to offer both in terms of beautiful landscapes, but also from the point of view of the opportunities it offers. For this reason, the cost of living will be proportionate to the offers on the territory. For the monthly food expenditure, on average the cost is around 1000 dollars, while the health insurance, with a very high level in terms of qualified personnel, are around 90 dollars per month per family. Another element of fundamental importance is given by the presence of a functional school system and particularly high as a training offer. In this case the prices are around 1000 dollars of total expenditure that will allow your children to reach a 'complete education until college.

What are the main cities where you can move and buy a property? We assume that the most important cities are all different, and unique in their kind. The undoubtedly most characteristic and emblematic metropolis, Los Angeles, offers opportunities even at 500,000 euros.

Then we identify the wonderful San Francisco, eccentric and with the most famous panoramic views in the world. Here you can buy a property for less than 500,000 euros.

If you are a lover of the coast, you can not miss Santa Barbara, the typical seaside resort, overlooking the coast of California (and with uniform prices compared to previous).

What can I say, we hope that our guide has been quite comprehensive and we wish you a pleasant journey to discover California!
