FEEDBACK FROM TOM WHEN HE USED OUTSIDE REALTORS
Many expats use more than one realtor to source their housing needs. The company retained
realtor may get very angry as there will be no exclusivity and no revenue for time
spent in showing the residences if he or she can't find the appropriate properties.
"You will be slaughtered by the other agent who will inflate rent" when Tom said
he was using an outside realtor as well as the bank's retained realtors.
"Your expatriate friends will not visit you since
you wish to live in a non-expat enclave like Toa Payoh or Yio Chu Kang and other expats
will look down on you as cheapskates".
"Tell the landlord you want a 2-year lease" as most landlords dislike one year
leases when they have to provide brand new furniture for a fully furnished apartment.
The above was feedback from Tom's wife commenting on the professionalism of her husband's
bank-retained realtor who specialised in expatriate-favoured enclaves where rent was high
or the apartments were old for the $3,500 budget.
The management of the expatriate tenant must be professional. Running down the
competitors will not help you to close the case. Get what he wants since you have an
advantage, being retained by the bank or multi-national company.
A 4-bedroom condo in Castle Green (13th floor) or Oleander Tower (20th
floor) were 2 choices. Almost all 3-bedroom in newer condos nowadays have 1,500 sq. ft
living space - hence 4-bedroom approximates the built-in specifications.
The wife is particular about gym and Singapore Cable Television as well as a condo where
her toddler can mix with other children. I
Castle Green has all the specifications esp. gym and children's playground these are
priorities for your wife.
As for you, it is around 15-minute subway ride to Raffles Place, plus a 8-minute walk to
the Yio Chu Kang subway (MRT). There is night golfing at the nearby Orchid Golf Club and
of course, Johore golf courses are <15-minute drive from Castle Green.
Asia USA Realtor found a 4-bedroom Castle Green at $3,500 fully furnished for Tom and his
wife on a one year lease. Lease was renewed for another year.
Cable vision installed in 1999.
It is possible to get lower rents in suburbia as demand is not high and several new condos
have been completed.
In suburban areas in the North, the vast majority of the residents is
Singaporeans. This may not be comfortable for some Caucasian wives but
if the community speaks English and therefore it will be a great opportunity
for the children to learn more about local cultures.
