Real Estate Coverage

Post by symodan21 » Tue, 19 Jul 2011 5:15 pm

looking to spend a few years in singapore.

What is with the local real estate listings, sorry but they are woeful, they all just seem to list an place condo etc and use the stock images of the outside.

Im not a share holder in rightmove in the UK (shame!) but are there any websites in singapore that actually show pictures of the places for rent?? I would say its less than 1 in 20 have pictures and even lower the number that have more than 1 picture.

It does make it difficult from a far.
Thinking of a move out to Singapore welcome the help and advice.

Mmmh yes, the property sites are pretty poor here!

I can only assume that the apartments rent easily enough therefore internal pictures are not deemed necessary, that said our apartment was vacant for six months before we moved in!

Some agents will take internal pictures and email them to you if you ask nicely, we ended up moving into a Serviced Apartment for the first month to give me time to look at apartments.

Good luck with your search

Some have some don't. Taking into account the fully deserved reputation of the local agents and the landlords nobody is going to rent here anything unless (s)he sees the apartment with her/his own eyes. As a guideline the stock photos are good enough.

Don't rent anything from a far. Short-list only, arrive, stay in a hotel, go around and only later decide.
