Where you work is down town, the further you choose away from down town in all directions will be cheaper by the mile. there are some exceptions to that rule (of course).
Enjoy searching... and welcome to Singapore.
hi, would like to ask do you use a house renting website to find a living place in Singapore? If so, would you please share with me? I am planning to move there in coming months, and want to have some pre-survey on it.
Did you not notice the links on this website?

And you couldn't google "Singapore property" and see what comes up? Seriously?

Thanks. I surely know what you mean. Just to see which one is most usually used, and with real info in it. As in my place, there are many website of this kind, but most of them helps little. if you don't live here for a time, you don't know which one really can help.

A friend on mine suggested Serangoon as a "non expat area", but I'm not sure what to expect from a non expat vs expat area. I'll be working around Clarke Quay, so easy transport links would be great.
Serangoon as been an expat area even since i first visited back in 1970. I rented in serangoon garden way back then and it's still quite a good area.

Honestly Singapore is expat friendly everywhere, it's just the occasional idiot at shops, that can be a pain. doesn't happen often at all.

Though don't plant anyone, it's a guaranteed 6 month jail sentence.

You are only 30, a couple with no kids & I guess you're not coming to Singapore to retire, right?

Have Google around Katong. Great fun & full of character. I love it. Wonderfully boho.

Within walking distance of my Heritage landed house (only a little above your budget but I have a baby & a dog) I have loads (I mean loads) of great value & super tasty eating places, a cider bar (with English cider on tap), a beach, a huge park, a great library, a cold storage, hawker centres, friendly chatty locals, superb independent shops, an excellent shopping centre with a True Fitness, a Malay wet market, lots of buses (Sing public transport is amazing) and so much more.

Very varied housing stock. You're not just limited to high rise condos here. Get down on the street & join in!

Also, it's only a 15 minute cab ride to the airport.

OK, so there are a bunch of girly bars up Joo Chiat but if you don't like them, then ignore them & don't go in. No one is forcing you.

It reminds me a bit of Venice Beach so make sure you bring your Schwinn retro cruiser cycle. Yes, it's brilliant to cycle around too.

Don't come if you want an anti-septic ex-pat experience though.
