7 Condos You Can Rent for 2.5K or Less in the East Coast Area

If you Google ‘Marine Parade condo for rent’, you will get a list of condos for rent in the search result. Trouble is, condos in the East Coast don’t come cheap, and they’re known to have high rentals.

But that’s hardly surprising considering that the East Coast is one of the most popular areas to live in. And for good reason too: it’s close to East Coast Park and the area boasts some of the best seafront-living homes in Singapore. Furthermore, most of the condos in the area were built between the 1980s and early 2000s, which means that they’re built big.

In fact, according to realtors that we spoke to, seafront properties in the East Coast have become more popular among renters during the pandemic, as more opt for homes that are closer to nature.

So although renting a condo in the East Coast area may be expensive, it doesn’t mean that you can’t find a unit on a budget; in fact, here are seven condos you can rent for less than $2,500 per month in the East Coast area.

Disclaimer: at this price point, this list only consists of studios, 1-bedroom units, and 2-bedroom units. If you have more wriggle room in your budget and are looking for more condo options to rent in the East Coast area, check out our listings on PropertyGuru.
