9518Singapore real estate, good class bungalows educational stories for asiahomes.com realtors, March 3, 2001. Excerpts from "The Internet Realtors, Singapore", sponsored by  AsiaHomes Internet.

Will the Chief Executive Office succumb to the domestic pressure?

"Honey, why don't we just offer the Landlady now?  It is safe for the children. I will die if somebody rents this house!"  The American husband was asked to take time off to see the house. The Landlady was asking $20,000.

"It's best not to negotiate now as you will be in a weak position," I said. The husband was much relieved. He had relocated from the top 10 suburb in the U.S.A and Singapore bungalows of less than $15,000 rentals are not up to his wife's expectations.   Neither were the penthouses. The Four Seasons Park apartment-condos of over 3,000 sq. ft were asking nearly $18,000 and they could not be compared to this bungalow with so much tranquility and so much space for the children to run around.

The wife had seen various bungalows below $15,000 and these were unsatisfactory. There would be some unfavourable factors, like construction near by, too small a built in area, poor quality neighbourhood, near the expressway, no long baths, dated bathrooms, small pool, small garden and general signs of wear and tear.

She liked a Newton bungalow with pool asking $15,000 but there was a massive school construction nearby.  Yet there was a British family who rented it soon.  
Dream house with spacious room and big pool
Mar 10 91:  Dream bungalow with pool $15,000.

As we reached the hotel, the wife asked again. "Hon, why don't you give our realtor some instructions? I sure hate to lose this house to somebody."

"It will not be gone within the next 24 hours," I assured the wife.   "Have a good dinner, take two pannadols and call me in the morning."

I didn't really mention the pannadols.  It is a big headache for American wives used to a high quality housing in California to find that good newer bungalow in Singapore rents closer to $20,000 per month. What will the husband decide?  The happiness of his wife and the safety of the two children? At what cost for him to maintain a peace of mind domestically?
