Abstract: Aim of this research is to assess the lifestyle of expatriates in Singapore in relation to their accommodation needs as an update in year 2009. This dissertation has examined the aspects that possibly affect the housing preferences of the expatriates such as their overall accommodation satisfaction with their present dwelling, the population demographics, socio-economic characteristics, as well as other hidden motivations. These factors could influence their satisfaction as well as accommodation decisions. In narrowing the scope of study, the author specifically does research on the expatriates’ preferences of condominium livings in Singapore. The final analysis shows that condominium preferences of expatriates in Singapore do not have any significant changes in the preferred locations in compared with the past. It only appeared that besides the location and accessibility factors, a reasonable rental has become more important to expatriates than a luxurious lifestyle. The respondents also showed less interests in the facilities provided in the condominium. One of the most attractive findings pointed out by the expatriates was greenery view. Most of the respondents felt that it was necessary to have greenery views as well as more landscaping in common areas. The results also reveal that the demand of purchasing condominium appears still weak by end of year 2009 yet the rental market is still in strong demand.
