SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The sale of a four-bedroom apartment at Grange Residences was the most profitable resale transaction recorded during the week of May 30 to June 6. The 2,669 sq ft unit sold for $8.88 million ($3,327 psf) on May 31. The seller had purchased the unit from the developer for $3.3 million ($1,235 psf) in April 2004. This means the seller made a profit of $5.58 million, or a 169% capital gain over a holding period of more than 19 years.
This is the second most profitable resale transaction that has taken place at the development and marks a new psf-price high for Grange Residences. The most profitable transaction occurred two months earlier when a 2,583 sq ft unit fetched $8.58 million ($3,321 psf) on March 23. The seller had bought the unit for $2.85 million ($1,102 psf) in February 2004, meaning they made a gain of $5.73 million (201%) over a holding period of about 19 years.

Located along Grange Road in District 10, Grange Residences is 164-unit development by Wharf Estates Singapore (formerly Wheelock Properties). Completed in 2004, the condo comprises three residential blocks that are 18 storeys high. All the units are four-bedders of between 2,486 sq ft and 2,852 sq ft.
The second most profitable resale transaction during the week in review occurred at The Blossomvale, a condo along Dunearn Road in District 21. The three-bedder measuring 1,367 sq ft changed hands for $2.95 million ($2,158 psf) on May 31. The seller, who had purchased the unit in January 2007 for $898,000 ($657 psf), made a gain of $2.05 million (229%) after holding the unit for nearly 16½ years. This is the most profitable resale transaction registered at The Blossomvale to date. The previous record was the sale of a 1,399 sq ft unit last December. The unit fetched $2.8 million ($2,001 psf), with the seller making $1.98 million (241%) after holding it for nearly 19 years.
