Fully furnished apartment, anyone?

We are back! Well... sorta.

The wife and I are sitting in the lounge at Narita Airport on transit back to Singapore, and we reckon we should make the best use of the free wifi here.

You may have read in the ST yesterday that Overseas Union Enterprise (OUE) will soon launch for sale Singapore’s first fully furnished apartments.

The showflat for OUE’s only residential project in its portfolio – the former Grangeford condominium site that it purchased in a collective deal in the boom days of 2007 – is almost ready and the launch could take place soon. And each apartment will come fully furnished, which include dining table, sofa, beds and even linen and lamps. The furnishings will be branded and buyers will have a choice of colors. Residents will also have access to a concierge service as the condominium is near the group’s Meritus Mandarin Hotel.

The project will have 462 units, with 268 studios of 550 – 570sqft. There will also be 66 two-bedroom units and 128 three-bedders.

OUE seems to think that there will be a big market for fully-furnished apartments - for people who want the convenience.

And the wife and I always thought that shopping for furniture is part of the “fun” in home ownership…

What do you think?

  1. Buying a fully furnished apartment is more affordable than having yourself fund every furniture you wish to have. It is also more convenient in such a way that the furniture are already arranged inside the apartment.

  2. Actually, the furniture has been paid for...its just that the interior designers will do nice work for apt buyers and perhaps, do a better job. Saves the buyer head ache and time.
