I wasnt slagging anyone off. I just thought it wasnt good advice without some evidence which the Saint then provided and I checked a couple and they are near the airport a bit away from town, have a shuttle bus to the MRT because they are 1.5km away. As an example Cost Del sol had 3 brns ranging from 3.5-4.8k.sierra2469alpha wrote:$5K for a 2 BR - but you love slagging people off here??!!!
What the ??
Nath21, get a grip, have a nice rest. You got ripped buddy. You started to give some good ideas in these parts but you're sorely lacking in quality of posts - especially after this one!
Rule #1 - stick to what you know. A simple "I don't know" usually works here. In other words, don't advise on what you don't know.
When we knew we were moving here we ASKED questions, sought advice, and now we try to give it back. We give back by spending time looking at each individual question rather than shooting from the hip. That's why this board is good. The regulars stay - the fly-by-nighters go.
I do hope you'll become a good regular.
Your the one looking for a fight and shooting frrom the hip. If I was negotiating an allowance I would want some good advice. I got told there was heaps of apartments close to MRT for that price when I arrived and I went and visted over 20 in that price range and some were dumps and some were not what I would expect a young expat family would want (they reminded me of university days), so I was trying to be helpful and they included some that the saint mentioned although some mentioned I visited were good also.
Prices have dropped and continue to so 3-4k might be realistic when I looked last June the one I chose was $7k and Im sure many other place were similarly priced. Many expats also get maids also (although Im not a fan) and that requires another room.
I didnt get ripped i chose the best family condo as advised by this site. Then price can avary whether you get direct sunlight (which many people on this site complain about), have a breeze, the standard to which they are furnished and many other factors. For instance som 2 bdrm in my condo went for $4k but they were the worst of the bunch. Other "Family condos recommended by this site include:
Caribbean @ Keppel Bay Location;
Costa Rhu Location:
Cote D'Azur Location:
Draycott 8 Location:
Duchess Crest Location:
Pebble Bay Location:
Regency Park Location:
Savannah Condo Park Location:
Spring Grove Location:
The Shaughnessy Location:
The Teneriffe Location:
Twin Regency Location:
Valley Park Location:
River Valley Road,
Water Place Location:
I would suggest checking out the prices for three bedrooms in these place compare the ones the saint mentioned and make an informed decision.
Also im sure the person I replied to is a big enough to enagage in discussion they dont need you popping if for your two pence worth just because you have an issue with me. As a "regular" you should be able to offer some advice? What did you pay, what were your experiences?
Follow your own rules and add some value to the conversation - play the ball not the man is an australian term you should choose to learn.
