re: rents

Bigboss's picture

It seems to be a good offer as general, noting that 3000dhs rent will be enough for him alone,if he is planing for you to join him i think he will be force to pay more for the rent, other than that 2500 for the car is more than enough. Good luck

hi there, it will not eat

Bigboss's picture

hi there, it will not eat half of your salary, still you can get 2 bedrooms for 110K to 120K, schools will not be free here, car is not a problem here, ask your employer to provide you an accommodation and it will save you lot of pain
Good luck
