I am from the Netherlands and starting from August, I am going to study for 6 months in Singapore. A good friend of mine is also going and we want to rent an apartment together. What would you suggest we look for? A condo or an HDB (I do not really know the difference, sorry) and what should we take into consideration when searching for a place to rent? Thanks in advance, Sam

Good day to you.
As per your questions above, whether you decide to rent HDB or condo, it all depends on your budget, the needs for facilities (ie. swimming pool, tennis court, spa, etc).
Location is also an important factor too. Staying near your campus will make it easier for you to commute from home to school, vice versa.
On the differences, HDB is a public housing which provides basic necessities of living, and that usually comes with foodcourt, supermarket and other provisional shops just below the block.
As for condo, it is equipped with facilities and its surrounding are fenced up to provide exclusivity. Condos are therefore more expensive on the rental rates if you are comparing between HDB and condo on the same location.
With that in mind, I hope you have gained a better understanding on your queries, and do contact me if you need any assistance on how to go about on the rental procedures. Thank you and I hope you enjoy your stay in Singapore come August.
