TIPS FOR EXPATRIATE TENANTS
Expats with large furniture sets will appreciate condos of over 3500 sq. ft. Rentals
for such condos, around downtown Orchard Road will vary from $8,000 (unrenovated, blocked
views) to $21,800 (The brand new The Edge At Cairnhill penthouse).
Older condos which have been upgraded, like The Parisian, Honolulu Tower and Wing On Life
Gardens do attract tenants if they are fully and tastefully renovated, but their rentals
will be much lower and will be around $10,000.
TIPS FOR LANDLORDS.
LONG BATHS IN MASTER BEDROOM
In 2 renovated condos visited, the Landlord has not installed a long bath tub inside the master
bedroom. This will be due to the local culture of Singaporeans not being interested
in long baths. However, the absence of such a long bath affects the rentability of
the units. It will be rented owing to its new renovations, but it may take a longer
time and will not command a premium rental.
