My 2 c worth, hope others can contribute after visiting some agency,

New filipino maid (New Scheme)
Maid Salary Min USD400 = SGD500
Agency Fee = $2800 approx
Exclude maid air ticket, insurance, embassy bond
No maid loan, no replacement.

If you shop around, I think you can find 'hybrid' scheme as stated in the recent article in ST.
Agency fee = $1800 include insurance.
Salary = mostly like around $430-$450
no replacement but should have discount on next maid.
