SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The most profitable deal of the week between April 20 and 27 was the sale of a unit at Villa Chancery in District 11, which made the top gain of $4.95 million. The 3,703 sq ft unit on the first floor was bought for $1.9 million ($513 psf) in December 2003 and sold for $6.85 million ($1,850 psf) on April 26.

The unit on the sixth floor was purchased for $1.19 million ($725 psf) in October 2006 and sold for $2.97 million ($1,803 psf) on April 21.
