Depends on which google you're referring to, if it's google.com.sg, I think .sg would yield a better result. Not sure about google.com though.

Take a look at this as well, it's a discussion on how Google treats IP address and domain name - http://www.google.com/support/forum/...61e49baa5a6eaf

Whether it is .com or .com.sg, it does not matter so much for SEO. Some say .sg is better for local sites - this means that they do not how to use Google Webmaster.

On the hand, .sg should have a better chance of getting a domain name with the keywords you want.

Not considering the SEO factors, if a client is searching for your type of service, and he sees two sites: www.renovation.com and www.renovation.sg,
as a singapore client, he'll definitely go for the latter.

That's where it matters.
