Moving To Singapore

Are you planning on moving to Singapore? It boasts a large percentage of high-earning expats and is a perfect place to raise a young family. The city is clean, safe and crime-free. One of the few disadvantages of living in Singapore is the government’s control of information through restrictions on broadcast and print media, making it more difficult to keep abreast of world news.

Property prices if you are thinking of moving to Singapore

Property prices in Singapore are expensive, with the housing market divided into public and private sectors. The majority of locals and Asian expats opt for the public (HDB) accommodation. Most expats will choose to rent an apartment rather than to purchase one.
