Singapore has one of the most attractive real estate markets in the world, especially for foreigners. Expats will often choose to stay in condos during their stay in Singapore, and this includes both renting for shorter to mid-term stays and purchases for longer stays. While the price of the condos plays a significant role in influencing buyer and renters’ decisions, there are still other factors that will come into play.
Those with young or older children have different needs from those who are single or married without children. In Singapore, there are many great condos that you can choose from to suit your specific needs. The Marina One Residences, for example, is a mixed-use development and offers a variety of units ranging from one to four bedroom units, penthouses and commercial towers.
Factors to Consider When Renting a Condo
Condos in Singapore vary in pricing, and the reason behind the variation is usually due to factors like space or convenience.
