7 HDB Rental Flats and Condos to Check Out With a $3,500 Budget in Singapore

7 HDB Rental Flats and Condos to Check Out With a $3,500 Budget in Singapore
7 HDB Rental Flats and Condos to Check Out With a $3,500 Budget in Singapore

Renting in Singapore has become more expensive with condo and HDB rental prices increasing for 18 and 24 months respectively. This is no surprise, especially considering the COVID-19-induced construction delays in Build-to-Order (BTO) flats and new condos. 

According to the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) real estate data released on 22 July 2022, private residential rental prices increased by 6.7% in Q2 2022, compared to Q1 2022 which saw a 4.2% increase. The rental market is booming as well, with prices growing 6.7% quarter-on-quarter (QoQ). 

This could be due to the rising demand for more personal space and privacy, with more families preferring larger units to accommodate the family as more members of the family work and/or study from home during the day. According to our Singapore Property Market Report Q3 2022, we’re expecting another red-hot quarter for the private property rental markets in Q3 2022, as more expatriates return to Singapore.

So what are you to do if you’re in need of an affordable roof over your head? We’ve got your back: If you are looking to rent, here are seven HDB flats and condos for you to consider. 

7 HDB Flats and Condos for Rent Under $3,500 a Month

Whether you’re a couple affected by construction delays, or a family who needs more personal space, you may be looking for a more comfortable rental home with a budget of about $3,500 per month. From 2-bedroom condos to spacious Executive Maisonettes, here are seven rental properties to check out.  

Alternatively, if cost is your main priority, then you might want to consider studio apartments that are up for rent for under $2,000 per month.
