SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The sale of a three-bedroom unit at Balmoral 8 topped the chart as the most profitable deal for the week of Aug 20 to 27. The 1,905-sq-ft unit fetched $3.48 million ($1,824 psf) when it was sold on Aug 26. It had been bought for $2 million ($1,044 psf) in November 2002, which means that the recent sale earned the seller a profit of $1.48 million, or an annualised profit of 3.3% over a 16-year holding period.
Balmoral 8 is a freehold development along Balmoral Road in prime District 10. The 40-unit condo was completed in 2003 and comprises three-bedroom units of 1,701 to 1,916 sq ft, as well as penthouse units of 2,928 to 3,757 sq ft.

This latest sale at Balmoral 8 is the second most profitable transaction at the condo so far.
