Case study written in Feb 13, 2003:

The American wife wants to live downtown but rentals keep rising.

Two new bungalows 5+1, over 4,000 sq. ft built-in, spacious bedrooms, family room, a study room or guest room downstairs, big bright kitchens, new curtains and lighting, garden for barbecue for S$5,500 and $6,000 partially furnished did not appeal to the American wife although the husband and teen-aged daughter were keen.

The rent offered was too low as the bungalows were not located in expat enclaves in district 9, 10 and 11. However, Serangoon Gardens are a 10-minute taxi drive or 20-minute by bus to Orchard Road.

After staying four years in a high rise 4+1 of 2200 sq. ft at Manhattan Mansions (white brown building in the middle of the picture), so near downtown, the husband and daughter appreciated the spaciousness and the large closet storage space as well as the newness of the bathrooms and the kitchen cabinets.   As the rental budget was $6,000, it was impossible to get a detached houses in the prime districts of 9, 10 and 11 even as at Oct 2002.

"I don't like the worn-out blinds from the neighbour's backyard facing the back bedroom...My friend told me that her vet in Ang Mo Kio is too far away from Orchard Rd....and she would not visit me....No Starbucks but there's Coffee Beans which is OK with me.... You are the one earning......" said the wife. 

It was a lost cause for the husband and the daughter who didn't mind staying in the back bedroom facing worn out blinds of the neighbour in the suburbs.

Few Caucasian expat wives want to discover the joys of living away from the Orchard Road area and outside the expat enclave areas of prime districts of 9, 10 and 11.

Lower rentals and cost of living are advantages. Getting the children to know the local multi-cultural activities of Singaporeans may be an advantage for growing up children.

Singapore has a very high percentage of English-speaking people and there is no communication problem with local shop keepers or cafe operators in suburban areas.  Negotiate for a much higher rental and research thoroughly before you take the expatriate job as the non-working spouse may not be too happy to live with "the natives".

NOTE: In 2012, Singapore rentals shoot up.  Reports of pre-2007 rentals: House-Hunting Rentals
