Some key tips for buying condominium properties in Singapore – Part 1
Treasure at Tampines share with you some key tips for buying condominium properties in Singapore.
All sorts of reasons that you may find a condominium property in Singapore
If you are an ex-pat working for a multinational corporation that has its Asian operations headquarters in Singapore, you are hardly alone. Most of the major corporations on the planet have at least one office in Singapore.
It is very easy to see why. Not only is Singapore centrally located so you can quickly access anywhere from Tokyo, Beijing, Australia, and Southeast Asia from one convenient airline hub, it is also one of the greatest financial centers of the globe.
If you’re looking for first-world amenities, living in Singapore would give you a standard of living that is not only comparable to the one you enjoyed back home, it might even be superior. After all, in this part of the world, the weather is sunny and warm all year round. The same can’t be said of other places like Northern Europe. With that said, please understand that while Singapore has made it very easy to set up businesses in this part of the world, setting up your residence takes quite a bit of advanced planning.
Now, don’t get me wrong, you can pick up a place fairly quickly. Singapore has one of the most transparent and professional rental housing markets in the developed world. With that said, even if you’re sure that you’re moving to Singapore, it’s very easy to make strategic mistakes coming in.
You might end up overpaying for your unit or you might get stuck with a company that would saddle you with all sorts of paperwork. If you want to avoid any of those headaches, here are some key tips that would help you buy condominiums or other properties in Singapore with no hassles.
Get in touch with an excellent property agent
You have to understand that if you’re going to be buying a property, you need to find an agent that will have your best interest in mind. In other words, they will do the heavy lifting in terms of researching available inventory as well as negotiating on your behalf as long as you give them specific parameters regarding your housing needs.
Maybe you’re going to be in Singapore for a 5-year assignment. Maybe you’re going to be around for long. Your agent needs to know that. You also have to let them know if you have certain preferences as far as location, accommodations, or proximity to certain city amenities are concerned.
You can’t expect a professional property agent to read your mind. No such agent exists. You have to be clear as to what your expectations are so this professional can do their job right. Remember, if they can’t find you a place, they don’t earn. They are motivated to help you get the very best property so you can sign on the dotted line. That’s pretty much the long and short of it. With that said, if you give them very fuzzy selection parameters, it’s anybody’s guess on what they can come up with.
Chances are you might be let down. So, do yourself a big favor and make sure that you give your property agent clear instructions. What to look for, location preferences, and all the information they would need so they can come up with a comprehensive list of available inventories.
This is what you need, to make a truly informed decision. Hope this article shared by Treasure at Tampines, will find you a suitable condominium property.
