Are you looking for an HDB flat for rent? Whether you need temporary accommodation while waiting for the completion of your new home, or are looking for a move-in ready home to rent with your family/friends, a 4-room HDB flat could be the perfect fit between value and size. It costs a lot less compared to similar-sized condos in the same location, especially if you want to be near amenities like schools, eateries, and public transport.
However, even as the COVID-19 pandemic becomes endemic in Singapore, the impact of construction delays for BTO flats and condos, as well as global factors, have created a housing situation where demand for rental units is high and supply is tight.
In the PropertyGuru Singapore Property Outlook 2023 report, more first-time buyers may shift their sights to the rental market in the coming year. Largely, this group is motivated by affordability constraints in buying a home of their own (high resale prices, recent cooling measures and so on), and see renting as a short- to medium-term housing solution.
Without further ado, we’ve compiled a list of 4-room HDB flats that you can rent for $3,500 (yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, it was $2,500 in the previous June 2021 update) or less per month on PropertyGuru.
