The seller of a unit at Boulevard Vue made the top gain of $2.5 million over the week of July 2 to 9. The 4,478 sq ft, four-bedroom unit on the 17th floor was bought for $15 million ($3,350 psf) in April 2015 and sold for $17.5 million ($3,908 psf) on July 8. The seller made a 17% profit, or an annualised profit of 4% over four years.
Located in prime District 10, Boulevard Vue was completed in 2013 and comprises 28 freehold units. It is five minutes by foot to Orchard MRT Station on the North-South Line.
The second top gain made over the week – a 110% profit of $1.79 million – was at Casabella, on Duchess Avenue in District 10. The 3,078 sq ft unit was purchased for $1.62 million ($526 psf) in March 2005 and sold for $3.41 million ($1,108 psf) on July 5. This means that the seller made an annualised profit of 5% over 14 years.
Casabella comprises 82 freehold units across six storeys and was completed in 2005. It is located between the Sixth Avenue and Tan Kah Kee MRT stations on the Downtown Line.
A unit sold at Newton Suites, off Newton Road in District 11, made the third most profitable transaction over the week, netting a 122% profit of $1.43 million for the seller. The 1,238 sq ft, three-bedroom unit on the 29th floor was bought for $1.17 million ($945 psf) in November 2004, and sold for $2.6 million ($2,100 psf) on July 8. The seller therefore made an annualised profit of 6% over 15 years.
Newton Suites, completed in 2007, comprises 118 freehold units. It is a five-minute walk to Novena MRT Station on the North-South Line.
