Administrator answers:


I’m a real-estate agent here just to get some good Karma and to up the rep of agents here.

Based on your budget it’ll be a tough search. Based on the Singapore database (which includes those holdings from other agents and all classifieds in the last 3 months) there is only a total of 8 units which fit your requirements.

If your requirement is urgent, you may wish to engage an agent. Especially if you are unfamiliar with the procedures and processes for rental.

Regardless of situation, do advise your agent / potential landlord on the following: Your Visa (work permit or PR), how long you wish to rent (typically it’s 1 year min) and if you have any special requirements.

2 points you may wish to note when renting. Always pay your Stamp Duty as there is a heafty fine if you don’t and get found out and always check if your rental includes maintenance and sinking funds.

Lastly, if you are here on assignment or anything which may not be perm. You may wish to request for a diplomatic clause in your T.A. And Letter of Intent.

Do feel free to contact me if you have any other queires or better still if you wish to engage my service.

Does anyone know of an apartment/studio for rent under 300 in philadelphia PA?

I am looking for a room, apartment, studio, basement doesn’t matter for under 300 a month if all utilities are paid better for me. The place has to be for a couple not a single occupancy and I am looking for somewhere that is not shared by other people. Also that the security deposit is not asking for 3 months rent because I am unable to afford it. I need something asap because I am living in my car. Thanks in advance.

Administrator answers:

It looks like you two are shacking up in the car.

Any man that can’t provide decent housing should not be a man you give the time of day.

William asks…

Upper East Side Studio Apartments?

I’m 17 at the moment, but I plan to leave Texas and move to NYC, if I get accepted into an art institute there. Of course, to make this a reality, I am completely aware of the high cost of living, and I know I will have to start small and make some sacrifices. I’m searching all of the boroughs, except for the Bronx and Staten Island. I’ve been looking at studio apartments for rent, and I seem to notice that there are many lower priced studios for $1400 located in the upper east side of Manhattan, on streets such as East 83rd and 89th…I’m just curious, would these apartments be considered a good deal? I’m not expecting anything fancy, of course, but would they be in a relatively safe area and such?
@heXt: Of course not, I’m aware of that. I’m thinking of places like Pratt.

Administrator answers:

If its one of the Art Institutes run by EDMC (all of them that use the
AI logo), avoid them like a plague. They’re not an art school
employers take seriously. They’re open enrollment, they take ANYONE.
They just want the financial aid from the government that you are
entitled to.

If you ask me, they’re an elaborate corporate scam to funnel as many
Government Pell grants and guaranteed loans out of students as they
can and leave the students with the bill.

They’re like McDonald’s of Art “Colleges”. They’re a chain that is
popping up everywhere. They buy out dying schools, rename them, keep
the accreditation.

They may seem like they would be good, but it is all smoke and
mirrors. Pretty building with pretty computers. Meanwhile, it will
just ruin your life.

The market demand they say they’re meeting is not the demand of the
Job market, its the demand of the students. Students that graduated AI
are struggling to get jobs and have over more than $50,000+ or
$90,000+ in debt depending on what degree they went for. Degrees that
are worthless in the job market.

Basically, AI is a degree mill. They use bloated success stats and
circle logic to back them up.

They count students working at Toys R Us as in the field. Avoid them
if you want to actually have a decent future.

If you really want to pursue your passion, go to a community college,
study fine art, and then transfer into a state school. It will be
cheaper and the money you save you can buy your own equipment and
STILL have money left over for a better future.

Their job leads are bogus, they go to Monster, Craigslist, and career
builder just like everyone else. Their top employer is HOME DEPOT
(Check their own website) and I guarantee none of those are art jobs.

Don’t make the same mistake my friends and I did. We’ll be paying for
it for the rest of our lives.

If you go with AI you’ll be folding clothes at Target or hawking video
games at Toys R Us for $8.25 an hour and struggling to pay $90,000+
with bill collectors haunting your every waking moment for the REST OF
YOUR LIFE with no way to stop them because there is no bankruptcy
protection on Student loans.
Please please please make sure you check out these news articles
below. Many are accounts from students, staff, and teachers of AI.
Feel free to check YELP (“Filtered results” as well.)

What you do with this information is your choice, I just want to make
sure you know everything before listening to one of their recruiters
sales pitch. Remember, they’re paid sales people. Not your friend.
College may be expensive but what these guys are pulling is straight
out highway robbery.

And if those news articles aren’t enough, check the news today. The
New York Times, Bloomberg, and, CNBC all have a story about the
department of Justice acting on a lawsuit against EDMC for illegally
paying their recruiters.

Decide for yourself.
