The 3,229 sq ft apartment on the 24th floor changed hands on Aug 11 for $7.6 million ($2,347 psf), based on caveats lodged. The unit was previously purchased for $2.7 million ($842 psf) in December 2005, almost 17 years ago. The owner reaped a gain of $4.9 million, or 179%, which translates into an annualised profit of 6%.

Completed in 1986 with a total of 288 units, the 24-storey freehold condominium is located on River Valley Road in District 9. It has a mix of two- to five-bedroom apartments measuring 1,022 to 8,331 sq ft.

The second most profitable deal for the week occurred at Freesia Woods, where a 1,227 sq ft, two-bedroom unit was sold on Aug 12 for $2.3 million ($1,834 psf). It was previously purchased for $800,000 ($630 psf) in September 2006. This translates to a gain of $1.5 million, or 191%, over almost 16 years.
The sale also marks the second most profitable resale transaction ever at the development. The most profitable transaction at Freesia Woods was in August 2021, when a 2,077 sq ft unit was sold for $3 million, netting the seller a gain of $1.7 million.
Developed by Keppel Land, Freesia Woods is a freehold condominium located on Sunset Way, off Clementi Road in District 21. The 129-unit freehold condominium was completed in 2004.
Meanwhile, the most unprofitable transaction for the week was for a 2,777 sq ft, three-bedroom unit at 8 Napier. The fourth-floor unit was sold for $8.86 million ($3,190 psf) on Aug 16.
