    There are a few types of property in Singapore.

    Landed property - Only Singaporeans are eligile to own.

    HDB Flat - Only Singaporeans and Singapore PR (At least 2 PRs with lawful relationship, e.g. siblings, father & son, couple) are eligible to buy.

    * HDB Flats are flats (apartments) developed and built under Housing Development Board of the Singapore government.

    Private Condominium - Anyone is eligible to buy, and as many as you wanted.

    Foreigners can only private property, that would include apartments, condos, commercial property (e.g. office space), no restictions on how many private property you can buy. Foreigners cannot buy HDB flats. If a foreigner wants to buy a house, it has to seek approval from the government. Go to www.acra.gov.sg for information on setting up a business in singapore

    Yes, of course you can, Singapore welcome you.

    You can buy all type of house except HDB which means for the Singaporean or Singapore Permanent Resident only.

    There are a lot of housing project going on, buy a newspaper on Saturday when you reach Singapore, or engaged an agent if you want to....

    Enjoy your stay in Singapore....:)

    Most private condominium are open for the local and foreigner to purchase.

    The rental is very high now, and now it's a trend that more and more foreigners are buying their own private condominium, instead of renting one.
