Some Key Tips for Renting a Place in Singapore – Part 4 – Non-negotiable Options
What needs to be checked when you want to rent a place in Singapore? Treasure at Tampines share with you several things to be noted.
Insist on Your List of Non-Negotiable Options
You have to be honest with yourself. If you have only so much money to pay in rent, you have to make a shortlist of the options that you cannot live without. These are your non-negotiables. This requires quite a bit of honesty. A lot of people are laboring under a delusion that they expect the very best, but they want to pay the very least. Let me tell you that it is like expecting to buy a top-of-the-line Ferrari for all of a hundred dollars. Good luck with that.
While I am sure in the realm of possibility that somehow, someway that might happen in one in a billion instances, do not expect that happening to you anytime soon. You have to be very realistic and be completely honest with the kind of financial resources that you have available.
Focus on the Necessities
The first thing that you have to keep in mind is that when you are going to be flying in and calling Singapore your new home for the next few years, you are going to be spending a lot of time getting acclimated. So, focus on what your necessities are.
Later on, your luxuries will kick in, and you will be able to customize your new pad the way you want to but, as much as possible, focus most of your financial firepower in helping you make the transition.
Unfortunately, a lot of people fly into Singapore intent on cloning the home that they lived in, let us say, in Manhattan and replicating all the comforts that they have been used to. I understand this. This is natural and to be expected.
The problem is you do not know what is around the corner. Maybe you get reassigned. Perhaps your company shuts down. Possibly, rents go up. There are just so many things that could happen. So, focus on getting acclimated first. Focus on your necessities and then scale up later.
Hope this post shared by Treasure at Tampines, will get you prepared if you want to rent a place in Singapore.
