Expats in Singapore usually have two options for housing, one of them is buying or renting a high priced condo or a Housing Development Board (HDB) flat. A condo can cost millions and is not quite a feasible option especially for new expats. However, choosing a lower priced HDB flat also doesn’t mean that it has poor living conditions. There are a lot of good and suitable options in HDB flats as well. In fact being an outsider, you might end up preferring it to a condo lifestyle. Some of the common benefits of a HDB flat are as follows.

  • Affordability
  • Public Facilities
  • Expat Atmosphere
  • Convenience
  1. Affordability
