A large number of professionals and students relocate to Singapore for better career opportunities, for internship or studies. Renting the entire apartment or studio is very expensive and most of the young professionals/students cannot afford it. While sharing an apartment or flat with others can help reduce the rental expenses, it is usually difficult to find a suitable flatmate. Hence it is advisable to check the options for room rental in Singapore offered by a company specializing only in rental properties, and having a large number of rental properties available in the different areas of Singapore. Some of the factors to be considered while choosing the company for rentals in Singapore are discussed below.
One of the main considerations while choosing a rental company is availability of the properties at specific locations. Most professionals do not want to waste many hours daily commuting to their workplace. Hence they would prefer to rent a room which is close to the place where they are working. So the rental company should have rooms close to the central business district (CBD) in areas like Tanjong Pagar, CBD and Marina Bay. Other popular areas where rooms are available for rent are Orchard and River Valley, Tiong Bahru, Geyland & Joo Chiat, Mount Emily ,Dhoby Ghaut, Novena, Newton, Redhill, Alexandra, Lavender, Farrer park.
Depending on the monthly budget and privacy required, the professional can choose to share a room with other flatmates or have his own studio apartment for complete privacy. When the apartment or landed house is shared, the tenant will usually have his own bedroom, with other facilities shared with the other flatmates. While there is some loss of privacy, it also gives the professional the opportunity to meet new people, make new friends. The tenant can choose from master rooms and standard rooms. There are different types of studios available like penthouse studios, studio lofts and standard studios.
The company managing the rental properties realizes that most professionals who are living alone in Singapore for the first time, do not have the time and information to furnish the rental room. So the rental room is furnished with some furniture. Additionally kitchenware is also provided. Depending on the package selected, the level of room furnishing and kitchenware provided will differ. The basic monthly package only includes basic furnishings, kitchenware, while more expensive packages will include comprehensive or luxury furnishing, kitchenware. The common areas are cleaned only once a month for the basic package, and once a week for the more expensive packages.
Other facilities include free WiFi with speeds up to 1 Gbps. The rental company will provide maintenance for the property so tenants do not have to spend time and money for property repairs. Another main advantage of renting a room is the rental period can be as less as three months, and the terms of the lease can be adjusted as required. Events are regularly held so that the tenants can socialize with each other. All the properties available on rent are listed online at the website, so that the tenant can check the photos, before choosing a suitable room.
