SINGAPORE (EDGPROP) - The sale of a four-bedroom unit at The Arcadia was the most profitable condo resale transaction during the week of Oct 10 to 17, based on caveats lodged with URA. The 3,735 sq ft unit on the seventh floor changed hands for $4.28 million ($1,146 psf) on Oct 13. It had been purchased by the seller in October 2004 for $1.38 million ($369 psf), which means they raked in a profit of $2.9 million. This works out to a capital gain of 210% over a holding period of 19 years.
This is the most profitable resale transaction that has taken place at The Arcadia to date this year. It surpasses the previous gain of $700,000 netted by the seller of a 3,757 sq ft unit on the fifth floor that was sold for $4.3 million ($1,145 psf) in February. The seller had bought the unit in June 2018 for $3.6 million ($958 psf).
The most profitable resale transaction at The Arcadia was the sale of a 7,503 sq ft penthouse in August 2010 for $10 million ($1,333 psf). The seller, who purchased the penthouse in February 2007 for $5.5 million ($733 psf), reaped a profit of $4.5 million.
