Question:
I plan to move to Moscow early in 2009. I will work near the Garden Ring at Mayakovskaya Metro stop. My wife and I will look for a 3-room western remont apartment of around 90-100 SM, close to the Metro, restaurants, and hopefully a supermarket. Also a park nearby for our small dog! We will have a budget of around $5,500 USD per month. Is it resonable to find a nice apartment for that in a nice central area as described above? Also, are most apartments furnished? And for the furnished ones, what is included? TV, kitchenware, etc.? Are apartments in this price range "cable-ready"? Thank you!

Answer:
Dear Don,
Thank you very much for your questions. Your company has provided you a reasonable housing budget in order to find the type of apartment you require as described in your letter. Furnished (65%), partially furnished (10%), unfurnished (25%) make up the selection of apartments currently available in Moscow. Furnished apartments generally are live-ready. Real estate brokers can usually successfully negotiate with the landlord to buy additional items like kitchenware, towels, a boiler, extra dressers, new TV's, etc. Most apartments do have internet and there are numerous satellite TV providers, so it is easy to arrange for cable if required. I should inform you that many landlords are opposed to having pets in their properties, so that could slightly limit your housing options. Hope this helps,
