Hunting for a house to rent or buy in Singapore?

How easy it is to find a house to rent or buy in Singapore?

If you are trying to find a house to rent or buy in Singapore, you will most probably start with searching on the internet, then short-listing the Ads and calling on the listed phone number. Most likely you will end up with property agents picking up your calls. The property agents will then set up meetings with you to show you around several houses in Singapore. When I moved to Singapore in 2011, I had to visit 24 different houses with 11 different property agents before I could get to the one of my choice. This was a whole month activity and off course tiring. In Singapore, generally you will have to go via a property agent to do all the legal work for you.

Why does it take so much of effort?

The property advertisements on the internet do not have complete information or details that answers your needs. For example, I was looking for a house with bigger living room with a balcony and a space to setup my own gym. A typical Ad is very generic that says how big the house is, the number of rooms and bathrooms with some pictures. Most of the time, we go by the price and if the pictures are impressive we call the advertiser or rather the property agent. If you are not lucky, you will most likely be disappointed when you visit the house for one or more reasons. For example, there could be parking for only one car while you needed a second one for your wife’s car. This story could be similar with the rest of the Ads you have short-listed to view with a property agent. In the end, after a long vested time you find your ideal house. When you think about it, all you needed was someone who could understand all your criteria and show you a house that exactly met them rather than showing you 20 different houses that does not meet your needs.
