Waiting for BTO-Renovation Works-Coliving Singapore

Coliving and rental apartments in Singapore are typically associated with international students and expats, and not as ideal for Singaporeans. Indeed, the Singaporean dream depicts a couple raising a family in a HDB flat or condominium. Yet, contrary to popular belief, coliving in Singapore does have its appeal to various Singaporean demographics who find themselves in different situations. In this article, we’ll explore the different scenarios that could benefit from coliving, and whether a similar room for rent could be your next accommodation as well.

he struggle to find temporary accommodation whilst waiting for a BTO flat or for renovation works to be completed is well documented.

With Coliwoo’s fully furnished rental apartments in Singapore, couples can now enjoy total privacy in a well-equipped abode that doesn’t require them to take everything apart and put them back when it’s time to move out once again. These apartments also come with short-term leases that allow for flexible renting without being forced to commit to something long-term.

Leaving Your Proverbial Nest

More young Singaporeans are looking to move out of their parents’ home in a bid to get greater privacy and autonomy over their lives. While living rent-free is all well and good, the modern man seeks more intangible experiences in life, like not being micromanaged by their parents, or having their own room instead of having to share it with their siblings, or just the desire to be independent and live life on their own terms. Regardless, moving out is still a huge step that some might not be as ready for as they think they are. If you find yourself at a similar crossroads, why not get a taste of independent living before committing to a long-term lease? With Coliwoo’s coliving rooms for rent and monthly lease contracts, you get to dip your toes into what life alone would be like — doing your own laundry, cooking your own meals, and so on. Most of our rooms are also equipped with a kitchenette and washer-cum-dryer to aid with said laundry and cooking.

Another perk of coliving in Singapore is that you’ll have opportunities to be a part of a community of residents from all walks of life who are also living independently. You’ll have a safe space to share your concerns and experiences, and receive valuable tips on how to handle this new chapter of your life.

Looking for a Place Near Your Office

Singapore may be small, but commuting during rush hour isn’t any less terrifying. Now, imagine living on the opposite end of where your workplace is situated, requiring you to squeeze into a feeder bus, and a jam-packed train. Not everyone has the luxury of working from home, and if you find yourself having to spend an hour or two commuting under stressful conditions, perhaps it could be time to move to a room for rent near your workplace. You’d be amazed at how much good a morning of peace could do to your mental wellbeing — have breakfast at your own pace; take a leisurely shower; or even meditate before taking on the tasks ahead of you for the rest of the day.
