Hi everyone! I'll be moving to SD in the next couple of months.

About me: American gringo with wife and two sons ages 2 and 3, english only. (Will learn spanish.)

I'm going to rent, with a year lease, with a budget around 5-7K USD monthly.

My 1st question is, can I find a nice gated community? I'll be traveling alot out of the country and I want my family to be and feel secure.

#2: Does anyone know some good help? I'll want a nanny and housekeeper. What should I expect to pay?

#3: Should I buy a bunch of something in particular to pack in mith my move and sell at a profit?
