Time Singapore:

Home is where the heart is

If you've been asked by your employer whether you'd like to be posted to Singapore, or if you've always been keen to live the expat lifestyle in Singapore, then this website is for you.

Whether you're single or married with kids, whether you're looking for a condominium, a bungalow, a semi-detached or public apartment, settling and renting a home in Singapore is easy when you know the ins and outs, the dos and don'ts.

My name is Bryan Norman. I've lived in Singapore for a total of 20 years. And with me is Esther Choo. Esther is full-time OT&T real estate agent who's lived here over 25 years. Esther's Agent Licence number is L3009250K.

Welcome to our Singapore expat/property website. We invite you to tap into our collective knowledge of expat life and the local property market.

Renting in Singapore 2020

Whether you've decided to take the plunge on that job offer from Singapore or you're still considering it, the first thing to note is that it's quite normal to be a little wary about the possible pitfalls associated with uprooting yourself and your family to a different country, a different culture.

Whatever your concerns, the information here will put you in the know on all aspects of how to succesfully relocate to Singapore and rent a home for you and your family. A home that won't just meet but in all likelihood will exceed your expectations.

For good measure, we're including countless invaluable information nuggets, little tips here and there about life as an expat in Singapore, the interesting local quirks, the esoteric procedures and quaint idiosyncrasies that we encounter here occasionally and that are in fact part and parcel of living in a foreign land.

So bookmark this site, because I'm sure the information you find here will come in very handy during your initial explorations here in Singapore and even long after you've settled down in your new life.

I know this because in 2005 I was in your shoes. That's when I arrived in Singapore for my second stint.

By the way, just so you know, I haven't looked back since.
