7. Outside realtors.
Do find out whether your human resource manager permits you to use outside realtors like
as you may get a bad surprise after all your efforts. We always live in the hope
that you and the human resource manager who may have his
or her favourite "retained" realtors play
fair, but this is the real world.
8. Duplications in house hunting.
Associate realtors understand that they will not get
exclusive house hunting rights from the surfer in

to close the cases. Expatriates using multiple
realtors are a fact of life. All asiahomes realtors will
get burnt and gain considerable experience when they
serve such challenging expatriates.
As asiahomes realtors get paid by the Landlord only when
they find you your ideal home, we will be most grateful

expat tenant looking for long term accommodation. For rentals less or equal
per month, the prospective Tenant may have to pay
a half-month's rent as agency commission to the realtor,
on successful sourcing of a home for expats.
This amount is needed to cover the costs of
house-hunting, transportation of expats from
hotel/serviced apartments and time showing you houses or
condos as realtors are self-employed. Please
clarify this fee payment with any realtor in Singapore
