Furnished / Unfurnished

Post by RichardJohnson » Wed, 27 Apr 2005 5:04 pm

Hi there,

My wife and I are moving to Singapore.
We are looking to rent a furnished condo and my question is what is considered 'furnished'. Does this cover everything? - kitchen equipment, TV, linen etc.
Also, how negotiable is renting in Singapore? Can you negotiate more / changes to furniture? Inclusion of cable or any utilities?

Many thanks,

Richard.

Fully furnished means that you have everything - TV, beds, dinign sets, kitchen appliances, white goods, but excludes personal items like cutlery, linen, blankets etc

Rents are at all time low, so everything follows the market price, really.

:D hi by the way welcome to singapore...

furnished means that the condition of the unit that you'll be renting is move in...so mostly you'll not be buying "major" stuff for your place (i.e. beds, tv, etc)...so it's like when you get to the unit you'll just drop your bags and at least live in it... :P but maybe the kitchen utensils or bed linen and stuff that are personal may not be included (anyway, it's a bit freaky to use someone else is...)

if you have an agent and during viewing you find that you want pine wood or want a bigger tv...you can ask the agent to negotiate for you..but sometimes at a price...anyway, you'll just be renting so let it be I suggest..most of the time you'll be away from your house that you're renting because of work...so as long as it's working fine don't bother too much...if you get at least 6 out 10 of your expectations of the place you want to rent in..that's quite good...you'll never get them all anyway..

hope this helps..
