2. Geylang, known as a "red-light" district in Singapore, is a commercial  area historically. It is being gentrified, with many low rise condos replacing the old shophomes. 

Those streets (called lorongs) may have shophomes for rent to Caucasians expats.  The red-light district is restricted to a small area of Geylang, a vibrant area if you like to live in a neighbourhood with many trades and personalities. Some pictures of Geylang shophouses in 2002 are shown below:

There are Caucasians who don't mind staying in Geylang to experience a new culture rather than staying where all Caucasians live. The red-light district represents 1% of the neighbourhood and is distant from Caucasian favoured shophomes.

Tips for landlord/realtor

Getting one foot in the door strategy.

A plain grey-painted door gives the impression that this was one of the ordinary conservation shophomes at Everton Road. Probably a stuffy one in this hot humid Wednesday October 11, 2000 afternoon.

The expatriate was wearing long sleeves and must be enduring the sweating heat. He had slept for only 3 hours as he had so much work to do for this start up which was profitable from day one. He wanted a dream shophome but his budget was less than $5,000.  There was no point showing him the higher range of rentals as it would frustrate him.  I qualified all prospective landlords and tenants.

My administrator was told by the "Owner" of this this Everton shophome with the grey door that he would consider $5,000.

It had a plain grey door. Nothing inspiring. 

On entering, one's senses are knocked out by the beautiful matching of wood, ceramic tiles and lighting.  I knew this was not the $5,000 type of shophouse and we had been had.   It was too late as the expatriate had one foot in the door.  A roof terrace with rich maroon coloured tiles, was accessed via a small push up door present the possibility of a romantic star grazing option.

The wooden floor boarded master bedroom of over 400 sq. ft was large. It and the attic room have a spacious bathroom which contains a white long bath and shower stall. 

The bright skylight enclosed air well is below the living room level and has steps above a small pond. 

You could whisper to the koi fishes your aspirations and sorrows 
in a landscaped pond with cascading water falling down the stairs.

The kitchen is spacious, above the living room level and can accommodate a rectangular dining table favoured by most Caucasian expatriates. 

It has the dishwasher which is seldom designed for in many Singapore homes.

Totally enclosed by skylight windows and cool as the "agent/owner" has had air conditioned it, to make any expatriate feel very comfortable. Simply fell in love with this house. Wanted to close immediately.

It was not possible to extricate the expatriate from his intense appreciation of the finer things in life and this shophome was one. I could feel it myself and I had seen a countless number. 

One marketing  marketing strategy of agent/owners in Singapore was to show to all expatriates regardless of their low rental budget,  in the hope that the expatriate would fall in love with the house and up his offer. It works sometimes.
Now, I had to do the mission impossible and make a higher offer than the $5,000 but it was nowhere near the $9,500 asked.

In 2002, 3-bedroom shophomes renting around $5,000 per month are few and expatriates have to be decisive. They are usually found in Kim Yam Road, Spottiswood Park Road and Geylang neighbourhood.  Above article written in October 2000. Shophome rentals in Everton and Blair Roads have shot up. .
