A 2,680 sq ft, four-bedroom unit at Marina Bay Suites along 3 Central Boulevard in District 1 will be put up for auction on June 19. This is a mortgagee’s sale with a guide price of $5.8 million ($2,164 psf), according to Knight Frank Singapore, which is handling the auction.
The 11th-floor unit overlooks the Marina Bay area and the sea, says Sharon Lee, senior director and head of auction and sales at Knight Frank. She believes the unit is more likely to attract owner-occupiers given that it has four bedrooms, as investors would typically go for one- or two-bedroom units.
The unit was first purchased at $7.18 million ($2,678 psf) in May 2010.
