SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The sale of a four-bedroom apartment at Camelot By-TheWater was the most profitable condo resale transaction during the week of Jan 2 to 9. The 3,531 sq ft unit on the first floor changed hands for $5.4 million ($1,529 psf) on Jan 5. The seller purchased the apartment in May 2006 for $2.05 million ($582 psf). This means they made a gross profit of $3.35 million on the transaction, or a capital gain of 163%, after owning the unit for nearly 18 years.
This is the fourth most profitable transaction ever recorded at the development, based on caveats lodged. Data compiled on EdgeProp Research shows that the most profitable transaction occurred in May 2010 when the biggest unit at the condo, a 5,834 sq ft penthouse, fetched $9 million ($1,543 psf). The seller, who bought the unit from the developer in June 2000 for $3.73 million ($640 psf), reaped a profit of $5.27 million on the sale.

Camelot By-The-Water is a 99-unit condo on Tanjung Rhu Road in District 15. Completed in 2000, it has a mix of three- to five-bedroom units that range from 2,433 to 5,834 sq ft. The development is located on the Kallang Basin waterfront, close to the Singapore Sports Hub.
The second most profitable condo resale transaction during the week in review took place at The Gardens At Bishan. A 2,336 sq ft, four-bedroom unit on the 19th floor fetched $3.52 million ($1,507 psf) on Jan 5. The seller had bought the unit in October 2000 from the developer for $1.25 million ($535 psf). This means they netted a gain of $2.27 million (182%) over a holding period of more than 23 years.
This is the most profitable transaction registered at the development to date. It beats the previous record set last March when a 1,572 sq ft unit on the 15th floor changed hands for $2.3 million ($1,464 psf). The unit was purchased by the seller for about $826,500 ($526 psf) in December 2003. Hence, they made a profit of $1.47 million after owning the apartment for almost 20 years.

The 756-unit development was completed in 2004, and comprises two- to four-bedroom units ranging from 861 to 2,756 sq ft.
On the other end of the spectrum, The Rochester Residences saw the most unprofitable condo resale transaction during the week in review. The seller of a three-bedroom-plus-study penthouse unit made a loss of around $546,000 after it was sold for $4.15 million ($1,105 psf) on Jan 5. It was bought for $4.7 million ($1,250 psf) in December 2007. The unit, which also includes a roof garden and private pool, measures 3,757 sq ft.
This is the first unit to change hands at the development this year and the most unprofitable resale transaction recorded thus far.
