What you can rent with S$800 a month around the globe

3 min read

If all you’ve got is S$800 to spare on rent in Singapore, you’re probably be limited to leasing a single room within a HDB flat. But what kind of properties will you be able to live in with the same S$800, outside of Singapore? Read on to find out!

#1: 31 square metre condo in Bangkok


This fully furnished condo is located on the 11th floor, and it comes with kitchen appliances plus a private balcony. There’s also a 24-hour supermarket located within the condo’s premises. What more could you ask for?

#2: 43 square metre condo in Kuala Lumpur


This loft-style apartment would make an amazing bachelor’s (or bachelorette’s!) pad. We can already envision ourselves throwing the most fantastic dinner parties in this space.

#3: This 4 bedroom villa in Bali


Want to stretch your dollar? Go to Bali, where for under $800, you’ll be able to rent a massive 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom villa that comes with private parking, a rooftop gazebo, a plunge pool, a fish pond, and even a maid’s room.

#4: This 1-bedroom apartment in Texas


Comes with a gym, hot tub, pool, and all of that good stuff. You even have a fireplace, a patio, and a walk-in closet. Pets are welcome too!

#5: A room in this quaint apartment in Mexico City


You can get an entire apartment in Mexico City for $800, no problem – but if you’d like to stay someplace nicer, we think this 1930s heritage walk-up flat which is surrounded with plenty of bars and food is ideal.

#6: This 1-bedroom unit in Manila


This posh apartment comes with plenty of amenities: swimming pool, gym, fitness stations, and more!

#7: This 1-bedroom apartment in Taiwan


You’ll be situated in the heart of Da’an district, with plenty of restaurants, galleries, bars and parks at your fingertips. The MRT station is also within walking distance!

#8: A one-bedroom apartment in Montreal


For less than $800, you can get a modern, fully-furnished apartment in Montreal. You don’t even need to fork out extra for wifi and utilities – it’s all included!

#9: A one-bedroom apartment in Sydney


This swanky 63 square metre studio apartment is to die for. Other than the usual condominium amenities, you also get access to a heated outdoor pool and spa.

Looking to sell your property?

Whether your HDB apartment is reaching the end of its Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) or your condo has crossed its Seller Stamp Duty (SSD) window, it is always good to know how much you can potentially gain if you were to list and sell your property.

One easy way is to send us a request for a credible and trusted property consultant to reach out to you.
