How feasible is it to find and sign a lease within 2 weeks of arriving in Singapore? I’m moving here from the US end of this month and only budgeted for 2 weeks of hotel stay for house hunting. Currently freaking out because of how crazy the housing market is 🥺 any tips would be greatly appreciated!

When I moved about a year and a half ago, after 2 weeks of quarantine, I found and moved into something exactly 2 weeks later. When my lease expired, I found a place within like a week of looking (easier if you already have the neighborhood decided). Make sure you factor in stay home notice (as far as I know this won't apply from the US) and be ready to make an offer on the first place you like. Just be flexible to do showings during working hours and you should be fine with 2 weeks. Worst case you can extend your hotel by a few days or move to a different hotel - likely the hotel won't be significantly more than a day of rent anyway

Thank you this is helpful! Just off the top of your mind, what are some of your favorite neighborhoods?

What’s your budget or priority? It’ll be easy to narrow down a neighbourhood if you can list your preference down.

2-3 weeks of intensive seeking. I msg ~200 agents

Were you successful? Any tips? I am moving soon, and have looked for a month now without success. Market seems completely insane - have started to reconsider the whole move.
