"You can ask the Maintenance Officers how to use the Jacuzzi on the roof top terrace. The security here is very good There is a safe in the master bedroom, there is no traffic noise from the Upper East Coast Road, not even airplane noises (aeroplane was lifting off from Changi Airport and could be seen from the Kew Green townhouse). You can put the conventional oven in the utility room (since the kitchen table is not sufficient and the developer had not provided the oven .
Lots of helpful info to close the deal. The Kew Green townhouse's power of attorney to lease on behalf of the Owner was given to the "landlord' since July 1998 and it is now November 1998!
Contrast with the other Owner who had a very unhappy look. This being Saturday 1 pm and she probably had a hard day at the office. She didn't talk much. Owners usually have around 15 minutes to "hard sell their properties for rent" and to give the impression they are "good owners". Take the opportunity to help the Realtors help you. After 4 months of vacancy and too many fruitless viewing, it is natural to be wary and grumbly, but what can you do?
In the case of the cheerful owner, he did manage to close with Asia USA Realtor. His family members were equally pleasant and happy too during the inspection!
