Last year 2018 me and my girlfriend had to look for a place as the contract for the current place she was staying at the time was ending. I was living with my aunty but I had to move out soon too because it was her son's room and he was returning to Singapore the next 2 months. I tried many property apps. So many, you name it, Ohmyhome, propertyguru. We were both still quite fresh graduates so our budget for rental was quite low so our choices were very limited. I'm the type to start things as early as I can if its possible so I already started looking around since early November although the dates we wanted to move in were in January 2019. We were looking at $700-900 per month with everything included and near enough to both of our work places. I met another two Carousellers before my current one which I'm staying with. The first one which I viewed was sadly a bit, well inconsiderate? She showed us the room which was still currently occupied but the tenant was moving out the following month. So things were a
-little messy. There was only a mattress provided on the floor so I asked about it and she said she could only give us a single bed. Obviously a single bed is not enough for a couple so we decided to give up on the room. We managed to find another two more rooms to view on the same day since they are both nearby. The first one was a private apartment actually but surprisingly it had the price of a HDB. We really liked it the moment we saw it. It's near MRT and Fairprice. Everything inclusive. Beside a river. And tenants and owner was super kind and nice. We said we would get back to them and proceeded to view the second room. It's HDB but couldn't compare to the first room we viewed. Long story short. We chose the private apartment, dropped our deposits, and booked the room to move in January 2019. Owner was kind enough to let us move in bit by bit as he understood that we didn't want to get any movers. Fast forward to today. We are happily staying in our new room. Owner even offered to cook for us every once
-in a while. I can never ever find such a nice and caring owner anywhere else and we couldn't have done it without this platform and the team. No regrets using Carousell as I've also made my own sellings here. Big thank you to the team and this platform. Support team is great too. They respond as soon as they can when I get a bug or something. Keep up the good work!
