Help w/ Renting for the 1st time! Recommended rental agent?

Post by sweetflea » Tue, 20 Mar 2012 10:59 am


We are moving to Singapore soon and I've read mixed/negative info on renting via agent... Not sure if I should find my own, or just contact the agents listed against each property...and how much commission in each case.

MY OWN? Seems easier to have 1 agent to view multiple places, but then I assume this agent is working for me and thus I pay the full commission?

If easiest to engage my own - any recommendations?

LANDLORD? Or is it best to contact agent on listing (and thus end up contacting numerous agents even just in one building!) as assuming works for landlord (who would pay the commission)?

Any advice much appreciated - thanks!

You will easily find an agent to show you properties, just call any agent on a property in the area you are looking and you'll find that they are willing to show you whatever you want! That's what I did when I first got here!

Everyone knows a number of agents in Singapore, I'd doubt anyone can truly recommend you a good one, only one that was good for them!

Good luck
