Industry news

Navigating the rent-to-income ratio is crucial for expatriates and HR professionals during the relocation process. In NYC, for a 3-bedroom apartment, one needs to earn about $400,000 annually, following the 40 times monthly rent rule. Comparatively, in France, the requirement is to earn 4 times the monthly rent in net salary, and in Tampa, it’s 3 times the monthly rent. These examples highlight the varying financial considerations across different locations, emphasizing the importance of understanding local housing markets and the potential benefits of housing allowances from Global Mobility programs.

Cultural Corner

One of the most frequently asked questions by our clients is, “Can you accompany my assignee this week?”. In the fast-paced world of relocation, unexpected needs arise, demanding swift and quality-focused responses. When urgent housing searches are requested, we explore all avenues, including extending temporary stays and arranging rapid property visits, ensuring solutions meet our high standards. Ready to adapt, we’re always prepared to tackle challenges head-on. Check out our LinkedIn post.

Happy Year of the Dragon! Tết Nguyên Đán marks a time of renewal in Vietnam, distinct from but akin to the Chinese New Year. Celebrated with deep cultural traditions like family gatherings, traditional foods, and vibrant performances, Tết embodies the essence of Vietnamese heritage.
