2-3 bed room HDB will be in the range of 2000-2500 sgd. It will come with furnishings and appliances. condo for 2500 may be slightly tough.

Look for apartments along the Green MRT Line

websites
.
99.co

Usual Deposit - 1 month for 1 year contract, 2 months for 2 year contract

Yes in 99% of the cases, tenant will use his/her agent and so will need to pay the agent feel.

Thanks for the website 99 . co , I have almost a similar question. I'm planning to shift from Dubai to Singapore. I have a few furniture that I want to shift with me, I already contact with few logistics companies in Dubai but still not sure the shifting procedure. Can you please help me with any good website where can I get service.

Just try a number of international Movers. Ask for a consolidated shipment if you don't have much (you share container with other people).
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!
