    can anyone give me an idea of how much it would cost to have the singapore pages of an expat website built.
    - not sure if i can mention the site so basically its a site with guides, live forum, products that can be sold and free classifieds etc.

    Humm I think edirectory kind of script can do this job. If it will be free option or you can get customized then meeplace is cheaper option.

    I prefer edirectory they give option of listing (free to diff paid ones), classifieds, events, zip proximity, articles, blogs, banner sale option and lots of other good features. Very easy but costly option.

    Script will cost $1499 for server license + $200 for unbranding + $500 for portal package... Then you can have $1000 for iphone app developed and submitted to apple app store. Customization for new look could cost you another $1000 or more...

    Meeplace will cost $350 i believe... No payment support so you can't make free and paid listing. you can't monetize your site except usual ads... Customization could cost you up to $1000 or more.

    There is another good option or may be easiest and cheapest. Setup Phpmydirectory ($100), get custom theme ($40+ for theme or you can get unique for $250+), good no of mods ( From few bucks to $1000)... You can pick which mods you require and get them and put them on your site.

    I believe it will be cheapest option for you. Just go to all 3 script sites which I mentioned and compare features and cost and decide. Once you pick script or script + mods then you can hire freelancer to do install or configuring it or you may get it done yourself.

    Just by covering every thing you don't create value for site... Your product may be best in market but if no one knows it or no one uses it then it's not worth a single penny while exact opposite to this case even your product is not best but people know about it, they like it and use it... LOL it will have big price tag attach with it...

    So I will say 250k is not impossible if you can create such product and market it effectively... Good Luck... :)
