Finding replacement tenants by yourself?

Post by benjoee » Mon, 15 Jul 2013 12:45 pm

Hi fellow Singapore expats. Myself and my partner are having a baby so we need to move into a bigger place. Luckily our landlord is very reasonable and has stated that we can move without penalty - as long as we find a replacement at no lower than what we are paying now.

We can't afford to pay an agent (who is a months rent = 5300), so we need to do it ourselves. We don't get much movement from our adds placed on this website and ., and only agents can use propguru.

Our goal: to move by October (two months before the baby is due).

So, please - we are open to any advice or experiences on alternative avenues to find us a tenant replacement!

NOTE: we already have paid for an add on Singapore expats. The Singapore expat add is here - so I hope this doesn't constitute and ad and we don't get banned. ... OXLEY-RISE

We'll keep it up and running - but any advice or help in spreading the word to people looking for a great apartment would be appreciated! Thanks to you all!

The easiest way to find tenants yourself is if you or your partner work in a large organisation and you have like a classifieds internal bulletin board where you can post deals. This happens in our company and there are always lots of ads especially for room rentals and in my company no one rents rooms from outside folks, there is enough of supply internally and best thing is there is no agent fee and no contracts.

The next option is to use free classifieds sites like Gumtree, Olx, Locanto etc. Place your ad and dont forget to mention "NO AGENT FEE" in bold. That is going to be the biggest draw for the potential tenant.

Good Luck.
