The Singapore rental market is getting weaker, with empty unit expected with more condo TOP in coming months.  Moving into a rented unit does require a security deposit, which can vary subjected to the tenure of the lease in general.  The rental prices have decreased in Singapore for the 2nd quarter, which allows for better prices for the tenant in renting a unit.

Now is the best time to rent a condo in Singapore given the weak rental market today. Consider moving out of the current old project and move into a newer project, more modern facilities for almost the same rental price you are paying currently.



Determining a budget allows you to figure out how much you are setting aside each month in renting a condo.  Availability is a key factor when you are deciding to move because some units you want may be harder to find.  Different locations priced differently as well, so you should account for any expenses in a particular spot.

So far in 2016, the market has favoured the renters.  The programs will create new condo launches in the coming years.  More people are starting to move from the CCR, and are seeking properties in the OCR. As more homes become empty, the market is lending itself for more availability at a lower price.
