The hidden costs of living abroad.

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
Does life in the United States ever get so (insert your own adjective here - boring, irritating, complicated, expensive, whatever bugs you,) that you think about just cashing it all in and moving to another country? You can, but be prepared for some unexpected costs of living. When you discover that many of the things we take for granted here in the good old U.S. of A are either more expensive, heavily taxed or totally unheard of in the States, you may just decide that the "Ex" in Ex-Pat stands for "Expensive."
Car insurance and healthcare
Compared to many countries, U.S. car insurance is relatively inexpensive. Not so in other parts of the world. But don’t scrimp on coverage. Be sure you have the insurance you need for anything that might happen on the road. And if you plan to avail yourself of your new country’s legendary free health care system, think again.

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
Some people just can’t seem to get enough time with pets. In fact, last year, Airbnb began offering a new category to their "Airbnb Experiences" called "Airbnb Animal Experiences." In that subcategory, visitors can choose out of 1,000 (yup—one thousand) experiences involving all types of animals from all over the world. We happen to know of one such Airbnb listing in Piermont, NY which offers guests the pleasure of spending time with their pig. (I guess we’d have to call that an Airbn-P.) Undoubtedly there are many more in the rural reaches of the Hudson Valley.

Protect your dogs against this Thanksgiving Day danger.

It's not just REALTORS® and retailers who are busy on "Black Friday." Veterinarians get more emergency calls on the day after Thanksgiving from dog owners than any other day of the year. The cause?

Pancreatitis.

Yup. Dogs can get pancreatitis from eating foods too rich in fat that they aren't used to. Like turkey skin. Dark turkey meat. Dressing. Pan drippings. All those things that Uncle Elmer slips your dog under the table or after the meal. All those things that make our Thanksgiving feast a feast.

High-fat foods irritate a dog's pancreas, which is an essential organ in the digestive tract and it becomes inflamed. The inflammation disrupts the natural flow of enzymes secreted by the pancreas, resulting in an interruption in the normal digestion of food.
