23 // Male // Where should I live and how could I find such?

Post by KTM_Kid » Sat, 01 Nov 2014 6:27 am

Hi All,

It looks like I will be relocated next year to Singapore from Europe for work. So I am starting to research the renting market now - I felt I did not do enough the last time I relocated so I intend to get a head start this time.

I would be really grateful for any advice :)

Priorities:
- Budget: 1000 to 1600$ per month
- Work: Ubi Tech Park
- Size is not a big concern for me.
- No car. Happy to take bus and/or MRT. Quick link to the airport is a bonus.
- No dependents (Children, SO or pets)
- Employer will be helping me out.
-My main priority is to be living in a communal flatshare in which there are always people coming and going. I have to travel a lot for work and I hate being alone after coming home from a long trip. Is this common in Singapore? And would it be easy to find such options?

Nice to have:
- Access to local shops is a must but anything specific like library is not necessary.
- My interests are motorbikes, skiing (I know I will be leaving this behind) and rugby (will likely pick this back up again).
- No Pets.

Your current home and commute:
- From the countryside but lived in London previously.
- 65sqm
- I live 20 mins from work (40 mins total commute each day)

Looking forward to your suggestions and what I can expect in Singapore. And let me know if any info is missing.

:)

What do you mean by communal flatshare? State owned inexpensive housing? Your budget is only good for sharing a flat anyway. It may be HDB where probably 70% of Singaporeans live - it's a state controlled and subsidized housing but hard to call it inexpensive, or a private property. With the planned budget you could afford a shared flat of both types.
In Singapore you are never alone, whether you will be able to socialize that easily is a different matter.
