Average accommodation cost in Singapore

Postby tiebushan » Tue, 30 Sep 2014 6:04 am

Hi all,

I'm planning to move from Australia to Singapore and am still unfamiliar of Singapore's apartment prices. Basically what I'm after is a self contained apartment, so inside my unit it's nice to have the following:
1. Washing machine
2. Fridge
3. Kitchen
4. Bathroom
5. Air con
And I prefer NOT to share the unit with anyone. Is it possible to get such unit/apartment (whichever term used in Singapore) under S$1000/mo? location doesn't really matter as long as it's still in Singapore (suburbs are fine). Thanks.

Double the amount and it will become more realistic. For 1k, not shared, not possible at all.

S$1800-S$2300 minimum. Go on a rental search site, and look for "3 room HDBs". That's a 2-bedroom apartment. 1 bedrooms are rare, and will be about the same cost.

Absolute baseline seems to be HDB 2-bed. Listings start at $2k.

I'm in the same boat as you OP, the only difference is that I have now made the move.

I've sent you a PM, let's chat there and I'll do my best to share my limited experience as an Aussie brother with you.

Interesting that you started another thread with similar questions, rather than answer my question in this one...
