A Place in the Sun Singapore – About Singapore
Singapore is a thriving and vibrant city, which contrasts smoky temples with tall skyscraper buildings. It has botanic gardens and the red-light ‘Patpong, Bangkok’ district of Geylang. It is a shopper’s paradise where you can buy many designer brands at dirt-cheap prices.
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.
A Place in the Sun Singapore – Buying a Property in Singapore
According to Morgan Stanley (the global financial services firm), forecasts indicate that Singapore property prices should begin to rise in 2018. In fact, the prediction is that Singapore house prices look likely to double by 2030. That implies a 5 to 6 percent increase per annum and would mark a reversal from a long downtrend in property values.
There are no restrictions on the purchase of condominiums by expats; however, ‘landed property’ (detached, semi-detached or terraced houses) requires permanent resident status and special approval from the Singapore Land Authority.
You can currently expect to pay approximately 26,200.00 S$ per square metre to buy an apartment in the city centre. Outside the centre there is a significant drop to approximately 13,600.00 S$.
