Contrary to popular belief, cheap condos in Singapore are not a rarity. Amidst the glitzy photos of luxurious projects, there also exist modest condos which can still offer decent lifestyles.
In this article, we chose 10 condominiums, which occupy 10 different localities across the island. The featured projects have affordable prices due to various reasons: Accessibility, Spread of facilities, Distance to the city, etc. However, we can’t describe any of these condos as downright bad. If a condo is relatively inaccessible, it usually has a greater offering of facilities that balances out these shortcomings. Conversely, a simple project with modest facilities tends to have a good location, abounding with nearby eateries and amenities. After all, developers would require at least one compelling selling point to appeal to customers, isn’t it?
This list demonstrates that there are cheap condos in Singapore, close to wherever you may be living right now. For ease of reference, we have sorted the condos based on the Planning Regions of Singapore.
