SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The sale of a 3,057 sq ft, four-bedroom unit at the luxury Ritz-Carlton Residences was the most profitable resale transaction over the week of Oct 12 to 19. The 31st-floor unit was sold for $15 million ($4,907 psf) on Oct 15. The unit had been bought for $11.48 million ($3,755 psf) in January 2018. As a result, the owner earned a profit of $3.52 million (31%), which translates to an annualised profit of 7.3% over nearly four years.
The recent transaction marks the highest psf price achieved by a resale unit at the luxury condo. On Aug 13, another 3,057 sq ft, four-bedder on the 30th floor was sold for $14 million ($4,580 psf).
