Beware of The Kind of property and Minimum contract period

Rental fee and amounts per square meter we mentioned above is calculated in case as of the room of condominium type. Although the terms of “condominium” is not quite familiar in Japan, it broadly means a expensive condominium mansion with facilities such as pool and gym, it is basically sold per room. Generally speaking, those who are not from Singapore tend to rent this apartment. However on top of that, a condominium type should be contracted at least two years.

If you are not sure that you will move out a room within two years in future, then I recommend to settle in a serviced apartment.

Serviced apartment services a managed room, with fully-furnished applicants and kitchen, of course it’s also including exchange linen and room cleaning services as well. Therefore this is very recommended for a family, the serviced apartments are available to reserve at least  for one month, so you can stay there during looking for a condominium mansion.

Feel free to contact MetroResidences if you would like to ask about serviced apartments in Singapore. Well-designed, clean and fashionable apartments are especially suitable for businessman.

*We took the average price and size of 2 to 5 bedrooms in each area to give you an estimate of what you can expect.
