Expat Living in Singapore – Renting a Residential Property

When moving to Singapore for the first time, expats usually rent private apartments/condos or land homes. At the moment we also see expatriates staying overnight in public housing (e.g. construction of housing boards (HDB)) as well, so they can immerse themselves in Singapore culture and enjoy rental savings.

Consider the following factors when looking for property to rent for the first time in Singapore:

Budget for rent

Knowing your budget is important because it helps you narrow down the property that suits you and not wastes time looking at properties where prices will never go down within your budget. You can also get newton mrt property via www.pullman-residences.co/.

Number of rooms needed

In Singapore, the bedrooms are very small for new projects, which are completed usually after 2008. So, you may need more than your usual number of bedrooms to store your things. Leaks: Some bedrooms can only contain a single bed + study table and you have almost no walking space.

Also, things that need to be considered for HDB rental, when the owner mentions 3-room HDB, it is equipped with 2 bedrooms. For HDB 4 and 5 bedrooms, they are usually equipped with 3 bedrooms, with 5 bedrooms HDB having an additional dining area.

Distance to workplaces and public transportation networks

Singapore is a small country and traveling from one end of Singapore to another takes about one and a half hours by car. In this small country, it is well connected by the rail network they call "MRT" and the public bus network. Finding properties within working distance to the MRT will easily get you to most of Singapore.
