CONDO ADVICE PLS?

Post by maverick singh » Wed, 10 Nov 2004 3:04 am

Hi All :-)

Moving to Sg in Jan 05. Need a comfortable condo with fitted kitchen, preferably not a dated construction & a nice sea view. Home allowance SG$ 5k a month. Am single, so 2 bedrooms would do nicely.Unless thats is being overly optimistic?!

Will be working in CBD but distance from work/proximity to MRT not an issue as I plan to lease a car.

Is it best to come in Dec and finalise a lease or best to come stay at a service partment and sort out things in Jan? How hard (time wise) is it to find a nice place?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Cheers

[quote="Eric from the Netherlands"][quote="maverick singh"]Hi All :-)




No problem finding a place with that budget. You might even get yourself a nice penthouse for that money. Since you want a nice seaview, the eastcoast has good places.



Hi Eric

Thanks for writing in mate.

A penthouse with a sea view for SG$5K (1500 odd quid?)...life cant be bad in Sg! This really exceeds my expectations, I didnt really think that I could get that much, but now that you've said it's possible, I will leave no stone unturned to find space like that.

Whats the best place to find a good estate agent? Any reccos? Or best to just scan the listings?

Cheers :-)

Wow $5K a month for a housing allowance? Geez...what is your monthly salary to be getting that much of an allowance?? :lol: More importantly, can I get a job wherever it is you're working?

Hi boogers!

It's a generous salary by Singapore standards Ive been told, but still lower than what I currently make, but its a professional ( read long term perspective) move to work there for a cpl of years.

I work with an investment bank,I suppose you can apply, Id be happy to fwd your CV to HR. Generally look for very strong quantitative/analytical skills and a good masters degree with 4-5 years of relevant work X. So if you think you fit the bill, come on board!

Cheers :-)

Hey Mav...

I-banking huh? Yup...they sure do pay the big bucks, but they make you work for it don't they? :D

Thanks for the offer to forward my CV, but I'm actually in the process of negotiating an offer to relocate to Singapore from the US. Not in I-banking though, but in an IT company for a finance/operations role. Don't have a master's degree yet so I probably wouldn't fit he bill anyways, but considering an MBA in the new few years.

If things work out and I end up out there, it'd be good to network, make friends and find some drinking buddies. Mind if I look you up?

Hi again boogers

You want the big bucks, you have to work at it mate. Besides I love what I do, so its really not work at all, its a learning curve, been great so far. Incidentally I did MBA (finance) & B-school was one place I really had to slog my butt off. So dont shy away from working hard now that your'e starting out, get your pre MBA work x in Singapore & then go in for an MBA from a top 10 school and u'll realize that big bucks chase you :-)

Sure, I'm looking for drinking buddies in Sg and it will be gr8 to touchbase there.Im 31, from india ( tho did undergrad and b-school in the US) and my email is uk_lon_don_guy@yahoo.co.uk

Cheers!
