A bit about us: We're Singapore PRs who have been working in Singapore for quite a number of years. I personally have been in Singapore for a total of 11 years now.
After years of renting in Singapore and with the ever increasing rental costs, we finally decided to stop wasting money on rent and buy a property for us to live in while we work in Singapore for the next few years.
We looked at various apartments and some landed properties in Singapore. I'm not sure about you, but to us, the real estate prices in Singapore are quite ridiculous (e.g. SGD36M for a house in Sentosa Cove is just stupid). So we decided to purchase a house in Nusajaya (Johor) and Australia (coming up soon) instead.
We are now living in Johor and working in Singapore, which means commuting everyday to Singapore. This blog is about the journey of our new days in Johor and hopefully it also provides some personal learnings to those interested about making the leap to JB.
