My pal Joe told me yesterday that he and his girlfriend are currently looking for a new place to stay. They would like to rent a room, preferably a master bedroom. So he has been busy these few days looking through the classifieds in the newspapers and websites.
Me being the good pal that I am, decided to help him out. Luckily I came across a new website which makes room rental for Singaporeans real easy, so I told him to take a look at the site. "RoomsDB? Never heard of it," he replied. I said why don't he give it a try - he will thank me for it, I assured him.
RoomsDB.net was started by a dude from Germany who was studying in National University of Singapore. He was looking for accommodation here and found out that it was not easy to find a room online because there wasn't a good enough website for that purpose. So he decided to make one himself! That's how singapore.roomsDB.net was born. Now he has a Hong Kong and Taiwan version too.
Using RoomsDB is a breeze. Just type singapore.roomsDB.net into your browser and you'll be greeted by a simple page that loads pretty fast. Then follow these steps and you're on your way to find your ideal room to rent.
1) Click on "read offers" to check out all the available rooms for rent. The site has a growing list so you may need to narrow down your search.
2) You can narrow down your search by choosing the room type, district and others. For example, my pal wanted a room in Bukit Batok.
3) In a blink of an eye the site's database shows all the available rooms in Bukit Batok. A "yellow star icon" on the left of each ad means that there's no agent fee involved. Look for the room that interests you and then click the "magnifying glass icon" which will bring you to the ad in detail.
4) Lastly, you can contact the landlord either by handphone or by sending an email.
That's it. It's that simple!
There are several good points about RoomsDB. It's damn easy to use! This has to be by far the easiest and best room rental website in Singapore. You don't have to register, even when posting an ad! It also has lots of rooms available online - master bedrooms, common rooms in HDBs and condominiums. Some of the rooms are also available without any agent fee.
As for my pal, the latest I heard is that he really enjoyed using the website and he has already contacted a few of the landlords. Great! I hope he does get the room that he wanted. Now, let me see if I have a spare room to rent. Hehe. Gonna make some money!
Go try out RoomsDB and tell your pals about it too aye. Thanks!
