A condo around Bukit Batok would be cheaper than say, a condo around Clementi, Dover or Holland Village (in reference to proximity to One-North station). Bukit Batok is pretty local so if you need specific Western comforts (meat selection etc), you might want to consider living around the latter cluster where you have Cold Storage and Fairprice Finest.olibear wrote:Hi JR8, thanks
A little more detail on work places -
Very close to One-North MRT and close to St Luke's hospital in Bukit Batok
Is there any reason why I shouldn't disclose my work place?
Oh, really because being that precise doesn't add to the discussion, but does detract from your privacy.olibear wrote:Is there any reason why I shouldn't disclose my work place?
I think the best you can do at this point is what you've already done. Consider what kind of place will fit in with your needs, and hence identify candidate areas. That's a good start, but keep in mind that if this is your first time in SG (as a non-tourist) your impressions might change somewhat when you get here. I'm just noting that so if it happens you're ready for it. For example if when you land, your employer puts you up in temporary accommodation, then there's likely to feel like a pull that that area is ideal, but if it's central as most Serviced Apartments/hotels are, you're drawn to the $$$-'known known', rather than the pragmatic '$$-known-somewhat-unknown'.olibear wrote:No worries!
I've been looking at the SG . a lot for weeks now. It's probably pointless at this time, since it will be August before we arrive.
On a side note, is that the best way to find a place to rent, or should I be considering other places too?
IIRC this website is hosted courtesy of a major realtor's servers. That doesn't mean we bang their drum, it just means it would be very impolite/ungracious to suggest alternatives on '''their''' forum (as such).olibear wrote:I think I meant to type is Singapore . the best site to use to find/compare property rental, or should I be looking at other websites too?
