And I don't really get how moving in at winter is a bad thing. This is not Great Britain, we build our houses to bear all seasons. Dress properly while going outside and in the odd case you're actually freezing inside take it up with the landlord, because you really shouldn't. A little snow doesn't mess up the traffic either, at least much. Honestly, Finland at winter is pretty much like Finland at summer, sans some eye candy.
Well i chatted with several guys from my job who left for Helsinki last year and they all told me to move by summer. I don't know i'm used to snow and cold, i'm canadian
But anyway, one thing who was a pleasant surprise was the real estate price in Helsinki and it's cities near.
