I had noticed a few houses for rent posted in JTC website.
Please visit www.jtc.gov.sg
. The price varies from $1000 ( 3 room) and $1250 ( 4 Room flat).
Although the apartment is unfurnished, you can save a lot of money.
Simple calculation as follows:
If you are opting to buy JTC house
1. You are saving 1/2 month agent fees i.e if you are renting a flat for 1400 to 1500. you are saving minimum 700 dollars as agents fees for this you can buy a second hand sofa set + two bed and a dining table. Pls visit efair webist for good second hand items or visit ebay or mocca.
2. If you are opting to go for a Aircon and a TV, it would cost you maximum of $ 500 for both. good second hand aircon can be found in aircold services(# 67585555).
on the whole you would be saving minimum $2400 dollars for the whole year. Please note this is not a actual figure you can save. some might be little less and some may be high.
On the whole the main advantages of JTC is that:
1. Save agent fees.
2. avaid the trouble created by land lord and agent
3. you can have your own house with your liking for a year or two.
4. no extenal disturbances.
HOPE THIS WOULD HELP
