SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The most profitable resale transaction during the week of May 31 to June 7 was that of a 2,433 sq ft, three-bedroom unit at Camelot By-The-Water, a condominium on Tanjong Rhu Road in District 15.
The unit fetched $4.15 million ($1,706 psf) on May 31. The property had been purchased for $1.68 million ($691 psf) in October 2006. As a result, the seller earned a profit of $2.47 million (147%) on the transaction, which translates to an annualised profit of 6% over 15½ years.
Camelot By-The-Water is a 99-year leasehold development that was completed in 2000. The 99-unit development comprises a mix of three- to five-bedroom units that range from 2,433 to 5,834 sq ft.
