    My investment units are 2 bedders with average floor area of 1000sqft. Have no problem renting them out even during crisis and without much drop in rent.

    Mine are 1 bedrooms, for higher yield, quite easy to rent out.

    But, unit size not the only determinants of rent-ability. mrt, amenities are crucial.

    For rental, 2 bedrooms (mid floor between 8th to 12th floor depending on the project). For capital gains, go for larger units. Just my

    Other than generic factors like num of bedders n gd location, market research also damn important based on the location u r targeting. Gib case study.
    Alexis 1RM can rent super insane at 3k/p.m due to surrounding older condo, larger n no 1rm. So if tenants there single need to rent that area have no choice to accept a new condo and smaller at 3k because the next better option they have is probably queens condo, anchorage 2rm which is more 4.5k +/- per month.
    So location muz recce, see tenant profile, study surrounding condo for competitive advantage, understand your competitor's condo floorplan. Once you have better understanding that u can uncover gems.. no one size fits all w.r.t your question

    look at a few new launches which unit type sold out first...thats ur answer...
    In the final analysis.....its NOT whether you have a diploma,degree,masters OR PHD....its whether you have a HDB/PC/EC or LANDED...

    Studio/1 bedder easiest to rent out follow by 2 bedders. This is based on ease of renting out which doesn't always translate to which type is a better investment (give you the best ROI).

    Exactly. Asking rental $1 also very easy to rent out regardless of unit sizes

    Buy the layout with less number of units in the whole project. In the future, either for rental or for sale you have less competition.

    When it's the tenants' market, you have a one-bedroom unit and tenants will say they want an extra room in case family/friends come and visit. If you have a two or three-bedroom, they will say they don't need the extra space and a big place is difficult to maintain.

    Layout is just a common excuse for tenants to reject you or to bargain with you on the rental rate.

    Unit size is only 1 part. Location and convenience is important especially in a down turn.

    Assuming there are 800 tenants and there are 1000 units allowable for lease island wide...

    The most convenient units will be leased out first, assuming the landlord is willing to lower his price to match the depressed market. Those ulu places, regardless size may not find a tenant....

    Go for CCR or RCR near mrt, amenities.....
