What is co-living? What does co-living mean?

Coliving is a modern version of shared living in which residents get a private bedroom in a fully-furnished home with shared common areas. Coliving spaces have become increasingly popular in major cities like Singapore as a means of affordable living for working professionals, digital nomads, and relocating individuals. Compared to traditional rentals, coliving is attractive to residents due to its affordability, flexibility, bundled amenities, as well as a much-needed sense of community.

How much do coliving spaces cost in Singapore?

The monthly rental for coliving spaces in Singapore starts from around $1,400. Keep in mind, the monthly price includes additionals that amount to an average savings of $330 per month compared to a typical rental.

Is co-living worth it? What additional amenities are included in my rental?

Under the local Guidelines, coliving properties are not allowed to be used for short-term accommodation – defined as stays of less than 3-months. Coliving spaces such as Figment offer a URA-approved minimum 3-month rental period with month-to-month extensions thereafter.

Can I rent a coliving space in Singapore as a foreigner?

According to the Council for Estate Agencies, to rent property in Singapore, you need to be a Singapore citizen or permanent resident. Non-citizens may rent if they hold an employment or work permit like an S-pass, a student pass, dependent pass or long term social visit pass. That said, even with foreigners holding legal residence, the problem is that most Singapore landlords may not be too pleased with a month-to-month lease agreement and would typically require at least a 1 or 2 year contract. Figment provides a much-needed. flexible alternative for coliving space rentals with flexible lease terms and a 1-month notice period.
