The sale of a three-bedroom penthouse at boutique condo Veranda was the most profitable condo resale transaction during the week of April 30 to May 7. The 2,486 sq ft apartment on the fifth floor changed hands for $2.88 million ($1,158 psf) on April 30. The seller, who purchased the unit for $1.22 million ($489 psf) in March 2008, reaped a profit of $1.67 million on the deal. This works out to a capital gain of 137% for the seller after owning the unit for slightly over 16 years.
The sale on April 30 was brokered by Aaron Ban, division director at ERA Realty Network. This is the most profitable transaction that has ever taken place at Veranda, based on caveats lodged. It surpasses the previous record profit of $1.23 million netted by the seller of a 1,281 sq ft, three-bedroom unit in November 2022. The unit had fetched $1.88 million ($1,468 psf), while the seller had purchased it in January 2014 for $650,000 ($507 psf).

The second most profitable condo resale transaction during the week in review was the sale of a 1,432 sq ft, three-bedroom unit at Thomson 800. The apartment fetched $2.62 million ($1,832 psf) on April 30. The seller bought the unit from the developer in January 1999 for about $958,000 ($669 psf). Hence, they made a gain of $1.66 million (174%) after holding the unit for more than 25 years.
This is the fifth most profitable condo resale transaction Thomson 800 has seen to date. The biggest resale profit transacted at the condo came with the sale of a 3,757 sq ft unit for $4.83 million ($1,285 psf) in July 2022. The seller bought the unit for $2.93 million ($781 psf) in January 2000, which means they raked in a profit of $1.89 million on the sale.

On April 8, another 1,625 sq ft unit changed hands for $3.05 million ($1,877 psf). The seller bought the unit for $2 million ($1,230 psf) in June 2016. Hence, they made a profit of $1.05 million.
