SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - A five-bedroom unit at The Arcadia in prime District 11 was sold for $6.94 million ($925 psf) on April 9, making it the most profitable sale during the week of April 7 to 14. The 7,502 sq ft unit had been bought for $5.1 million ($680 psf) in 2016, which means that the owner made a profit of $1.84 million (36%) from the sale. This translates to an annualised profit of 8% over four years.
