Space

OMG how hard is it to find a space to work from? I've been looking for over a month now and have briefed 3 real estate agents but...nothing!

I wonder if it's because my budget is $2500/mth and I need a space which already has, or will allow me to install a kitchen? I've been looking at renting terrace houses which allow businesses to work from, but even then it seems incredibly hard. where I'd REALLY like to be is in Chip Bee Gardens but they are unfortunately all full. I have been pestering the management agent like herpes.

I've been avoiding factory / industrial warehousing space until it's a last resort because....call me chicken....I'm starting up by myself and don't want to be working in Block 1056E in the middle of nowhere, on my own, late at night surrounded by the sounds of giant mechanical cogs grinding away around me.

A really useful site I've discovered for property listings is Rental Singapore - they have this great search engine and dozens of listings BUT their customer service is absolutely SHITE. I've rung & emailed them up numerous times over the past few months to enquire about their listings and request a viewing but they never get back to you!!
What I'm going to do from now on is just find the vacancy, then ask my own agent to sort a viewing out. Err, when I find a really good agent, that is! If anyone reading knows of anyone, pass it on will ya??
