What can $1.5 million get you in Singapore? Well, there are plenty of properties to choose from if you have that kind of buying power.

You can get a nice 2-Bedroom or 3-Bedroom condominium in District 10 or 11 with maybe 1,000+ sqft of space.

You can get a 4-Bedroom mass market residential condominium in Senkang or Pasir Ris with perhaps 1,200+ sqft of space.

Hell, you might even be able to pick up a 5-Bedroom terraced house near Boon Lay with 2,500 sqft of space (or pick a couple of cheap terraced houses in Geylang if you’re the “enterprising” type).

But what exactly can that same $1.5 million get you in Australia, New Zealand, Canada or Spain?

The answer I’m afraid to say – will shock you.

Final Note: It’s no secret that Singapore property is some of the most expensive in the world. It’s a fact of life that we’ve all come to accept for the most part (sadly).

However, buying a property in Singapore doesn’t need to be any more expensive than it already is. If you’re looking for a home loan with the best possible rates on the market, don’t forget to check out our Home Loan Wizard to compare rates quickly, easily, and for FREE!
