Jamie Yeo Rented Out Her ‘Tree House-Like’ Condo Hours After She Listed It — This Is How It Looks
The ex-DJ, who is moving to the UK in June, also shares a pro-tip for keeping roaches at bay.
Jamie has always dreamed of moving to the UK and even before the pandemic, the 44-year-old and her British risk adviser husband, Rupert, 43, had planned to relocate to be closer to his family. She also wants her kids 11-year-old daughter Alysia, and four-year-old son, Luke, to experience growing up in a different environment.
Last month, the couple went on a house-hunting trip where they checked out properties in Exeter and Crowborough, in south-western and south-eastern England respectively. They didn’t manage to get them as they were outbid.
She certainly did much better on home ground when her 1,200 sq ft apartment was snapped up on the first day it was listed. While Jamie declined to tell 8days.sg how much she’s renting it out for, she says it’s “a lot more than expected” and “gives [her] enough to have an income” when she’s in the UK.
Jamie has been sprucing up her three-bedroom condo, where she’s been living for the past six years, in preparation for her new tenants.
“I got two offers on the first day. The rental market is crazy right now. My agent was saying maybe it’s ‘cos people from Hongkong are moving here and I think people place more emphasis on staying in a nice place that is all done up ‘cos they work from home more than they used to,” she reasons.
She recently gave #JustSwipeLah a tour of her abode.
