Serviced apartments provide the solution for short-term accommodation for foreigners relocating to Singapore. These are the most preferred option for expats/ foreigners who are looking for a stay for short-term. If you want a place to stay till your goods arrive and you find a proper place of stay, APAC will identify one such place which you can call home.
Serviced apartments are designed to act as ‘homes away from home’, with more space and facilities compared to regular apartment rentals and hotels. Serviced accommodation is also available for short-term stays (up to one year) allowing guests to stay overseas for business trips without the hassle or lacking facilities. These are fully furnished apartments available for a short-term or long-term stay, providing hotel-like amenities such as room service, housekeeping, fitness centre and laundry room, etc.
In Singapore, as for regular apartments, landlords often prefer to rent out on a minimum one-year contract. Other option would be to rent an apartment for short periods of minimum three months, however, do note that only foreigners with a work permit or employment pass would be allowed to sign contracts for such rental agreements. Therefore, foreigners on short-term visit passes would have to resort to serviced apartments or hotels.
You are planning to relocate to Singapore as an expatriate or have already relocated, finding suitable accommodation features most prominently on your agenda. Your choice of the house will make all the difference between having a fantastic expat experience and just about a mediocre one.
We all know that Singapore has been ranked the most liveable city for expatriates (ECA International’s global liveability index list) from other Asian markets for the 15th year running. According to a survey, its excellent infrastructure and amenities, low crime rate and a large expatriate community may be credited for this honour.
Housing in Singapore is an expensive proposition. Therefore, if you are looking for renting a room in a shared apartment, you will find some budget-friendly accommodations. Another relatively cheaper option would be to go for public housing known as the Housing Development Board (HBD). These housing often has all the facilities nearby. Rental costs for such HDB units for an apartment with 2-3 bedrooms would range between 1,800 SGD to 2,800 SGD, depending on location. Other options include private apartments, condominiums and landed properties.
Demographically, Singapore is divided into 28 postal districts, so it is crucial to decide the neighbourhood you are willing to live in. For this it is also important that you consider commute time to work, necessary amenities nearby such as schools, parks, grocery stores, clinics and public transport etc.
Hence, housing is a very critical component of your experience in Singapore. It is very important that you evaluate your options thoroughly before settling for one.
