Post by eggsplat » Wed, 24 Apr 2013 9:53 pm

Hi guys, can someone tell me an average price for renting a one bed appartment or studio in Singapore. All the real estate websites are driving me mad.

location location location (although there are not many studios/one bedrooms scattered across singapore).

bills? depends on your usage/plans. power's probably ~$100 and internet probably 40'ish for the mid range plan. excludes deposit.

There are very few one bedroom or studios for rent. Most units are at least two bedrooms. If you only want one bedroom (or even see one advertised) there is a very good chance it is one bedroom in a shared unit.

I do know of studios in the river valley area for 2000-2500/month. It's a nice prime area, but the building is also rather old.

IIRC, there is no studio apartment in Bukit Timah AND Bukit Batok, not even Hillview. All condominiums are family-sized and when I say so, it means it has minimum 2 bedrooms.

I'd echo what zzm said about the advertisement. If you see one advertised for 'just one room', you're likely to share with fellow expats in a unit.

Try Selegie Road area (Sophia Road, Wilkie Road etc), some condominiums there have single bedroom units but they are few and far out in between.



Edited: Thanks JR8 for pointing out about Selegie Road

Lynx has a typo, she means Selegie Road.

I lived up on Mount Sophia, very handy location but I expect it might be pretty expensive these days...

Your area of choice is Districts 10 and 23.

What comes up when you use the property/Search function above?

What did you find when you searched the monthly rental stats at the URA site?



p.s. No problem Lynx :wink:

My recent experience says one-bed apartments and studios go for around $3,000 now, at least if they're newish and not too far out. Then again, I may have been too picky/have overpaid ;) You may try Redhill, there's a few condos there, it's somewhat west at least.
