SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The seller of a unit at The Oceanfront @ Sentosa Cove made the top gain of $2.2 million over the week of Sept 17 to 24. The 7,793 sq ft unit on the 13th floor was purchased for $8.19 million ($1,051 psf) in August 2006 and sold for $10.4 million ($1,334 psf) on Sept 20. Thus, the seller made a 27% profit, or an annualised profit of 2% over 13 years.
Located in District 4, The Oceanfront @ Sentosa Cove comprises 264 units on a 99- year leasehold and was completed in 2010. It is a 15-minute drive to Harbourfront MRT Interchange Station on the North-East Line and the Circle Line.
The second top gain made over the week – a 167% profit of $1.75 million – was at The Shelford, on Shelford Road in District 11. The 1,399 sq ft, three-bedroom unit on the second floor was purchased for $1.05 million ($750 psf) in March 2005 and sold for $2.8 million ($2,001 psf) on Sept 24.

The 1,066 sq ft, two-bedroom unit on the 20th floor was bought in June 2009 for $1.36 million ($1,274 psf), and sold for $2.56 million ($2,402 psf) on Sept 24.
