I'm no expert in property rentals but SGD4.5K for a condo at a central location is already hard enough, in my opinion. I may be wrong. HDB would be easier.dpot wrote:My best friend is taking a job right by orchard mrt in a few months and would like a condo with a 15 min commute, (I think they will drive/taxi, but may take mrt...not really sure what the package entails), they have a little one and will probably get a maid as they will both be working....so they'll need a 2.+1 or a 3 br, want a kid friendly place with a nice pool, good grounds....however, the kicker is that they only have a budget of 4500 or so.
We live on the east coast, so I really don't know much about properties in prime districts....it is possible to get a decent place out here for that money, but they are adamant about the 15 min rule, so living out our way is a no go. I thought I would ask here to see if Some members might suggest some hidden gems...also not sure what travel times are like around the orchard area as I am pretty much oblivious to life in the city, but I'd like to help them out. My hunch is that they're going to have to settle on the outermost fringe of that 15 min range to get the most bang for their buck. Also, we were able to negotiate down on the rent for our place, but Im not sure what the proper starting point for bargaining should be....again my hunch is that properties in central areas are less flexible given the demand, but I could be wrong. Thanks for the feedback!
Been looking to rent around this area too, so have been looking at rentals here for a couple of months now (well, not in that much of a hurry to rent, basically just watching to see if rents do actually come down!).winnoe wrote:I have a friend who just rented a place just 5mins walk from Novena MRT station. Rental is $4800/month (after incl. agent's fees).
