housing

Post by sabs » Fri, 27 Jun 2008 2:57 pm

Hello! (arrival on Sunday :D )

I'm searching for a condo or something else...

hire >3.500 SD - because I am pregnant and only my friend works in Sing.

Near MRT (without car and soon with child)


Do you know a nice little place???
maybe near a Park?

Thanks
Sabrina

why doncha look around condos off orchard boulevard? there're malls nearby, mrt station isn't far away either.

in fact, you could try seasons park. it's available for > $3,500 and the botanical garden is 15 minutes away by foot. mrt across the street.

p/s: in case durain puzzled you, there's also a classifieds section in this message board that may better fulfill your needs... !

where are all here to make money. that what make the world go round. :)

an estate agent is there to help you look for a place. that is the estate agent line of business (his or her rice bowl!). even if you dont want an agent, the landlord will engage an agent. since you are pregnant, how are you gonna give birth? collar some friends to help out for free too?

have a look at www.singaporeexpats.com for your search. property listing can be found on saturday ST newspaper too (again, most are agent acting for the landlord).

nothing is free in singapore, not even FREE incoming calls on your prepaid mobile. :P

sabs, thanks for your PM.

sorry if i sound a bit nasty, but here's the low down on looking for a place to stay in singapore.

an agent can source a lot more properties for you and to arrange a viewing. without viewing, you wont know what you are getting, etc. it is essential that you go for a viewing to check it out and the surrounding, etc.

someone can recommend somewhere nice, but maybe it is not to your liking. singapore are full of properties, view as much as you can and then decide.

HTH. :)

hello

i'm not here to make money, i'm an 'exception'
i am with a person who really doesn't want do make money (in austria we get more money than here) he wants to make the experience and thats not cheap for us !!

the company pays for the appartement and the agent.

i only thougt thats good for me to ask people.. it doesn't cost :lol: hehe..

we have searched at www.singaporeexpats.com

i only want all ways to get a good new home for my family.

you will be fine. just work with the agent to see what you like and take it from there.

there're some not-so-nice agents out there...

so make sure you shop around. SHOP SHOP SHOP...

don't just settle on the first agent you see or be forced into a place you may not quite like.

enjoy singapore.
