Accommodation in Singapore

Rent house or flat in Singapore

Home > Expat Guides > Asia > Singapore > Singapore

Land is at a premium in Singapore, and houses are very expensive to rent. Apartments tend to be spacious, though, and there are many different types and price ranges, from the vast numbers of condos (condominiums) with facilities such as gym, swimming pool and tennis court, to the more down-to earth (if a high-rise can be called that) government-built HDB flats.

Rent is usually payable a month in advance, with a deposit of 2 – 3 months rent required to secure your accommodation.

Most accommodation comes equipped with an air-conditioner, stove, washing-machine, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and curtains. You can also find accommodation partially or completely furnished . You will find that in a lot of cases the house/apartment comes with an extra room for a maid, although these days they may include this in the number of rooms advertised .

One more suggestion
If you are willing to find better data you need to check -
It's Condo information site designed for expats. It's not being paid to post advertised rentals so instead focus on the true contracted prices to give people accurate impressions of market rates + it has unique search function where you can search by commute time from your work place, nearest international schools, MRT etc.
