Yeah, a lot of those low-ball prices are for rooms only. If it's is a room in a three-bedroom, they will post it as a three-bedroom unit.Beyond_Redemption wrote:SMS, JR8 & Beppi
You folks obviously are very plugged in to the market situation, so I am a bit confused here !
I am currently outside SG and hoping to move there soon & according to my research on Craigslist and the HDB & URA Median Rentals info (which is obviously "business done" data - not the inflated expectations of brokers you see on most of the property sites) it seems that there are even many whole unit furnished condos (albeit 500 sq ft types) in Bishan / Hillview type areas that you can get around 1.5 K ! Even I was surprised
But then I notice that posters are VERY sloppy about clarifying whether the ad is for a room or the whole unit
But surely the HDB rental info for Q1 2012 seem to suggest mucho HDB whole units under 2K ? Almost can't believe it (of course these are Median # s)
So my Q for you ..SMS, JR8 & Beppi...is what am I missing? Just want to make sure I approach the research in the right way and don't get a nasty surprise on arrival!
The HDB rental info intrigued me also, as it puts my unit at more than 20% over median in my estate.
