Information

The vast majority (more than 82%) of Singaporeans live in public housing. These homes are located in housing estates, where most are developed neighborhoods with schools, supermarkets, clinics, food centres and recreational facilities. Popular neighborhood estates include names like Ang Mo Kio Town, Toa Payoh, Clementi, Yishun, Bishan, Hougang, Simei, Woodlands, Punggol, Bukit Batok,Tampines and others to the name. In short, they are called HDB, they are built and maintained by the Housing and Development Board

As a new foreigner in Singapore , he or she might face difficulty finding an apartment, the factors that will affect you, will be on the location. You don't know what's best for your family and yourself. Below are some useful hints you will need ask yourself before taking further action.

The Budget Allocated

What's the amount that you will be allocating for your housing in Singapore? It is a personal lease or my company paying? How much should the maximum be? Give yourself a flexible range like $1900- $2,500, to prevent yourself of having chances of being stuck in a situation where you are not able to find a place with a firm budget, in an area or apartment that you like.

Giving yourself a realistic budget will also evaluate which are the areas and apartments suitable for you, as different locations will command a different rental rate. If you have a budget of $3,000 a month for rental, you can get an apartment of about 1,200 sq ft to 2,000sq ft. (Dependant on the district). If you have $8,000 a month budget, you can rent a luxurious apartment with facilities such as swimming pool, tennis courts and gym etc. (Examples are Pebble Bay, Camelot and Four Seasons Park). You may even have the opportunity to rent yourself a landed home with a private swimming pool. A budget of $15,000 - $30,000, could allow you to rent a first class bungalow with many rooms, a lush garden, and even a private swimming pool- situated at a prime district like Holland Road, Bukit Timah or even Orchard area.
