A 1,130 sq ft unit at Skies Miltonia in District 27 was put up for its first auction on April 30, according to the auctioneer at Edmund Tie & Co (ET&Co). This is a mortgagee sale, with a guide price of $1.14 million ($1,008 psf). As there were no bids, the unit was withdrawn.
It will be put up for its second auction on May 22, and the guide price is likely to remain the same.
The fifth-floor unit will be sold with vacant possession, on an “as is where is” basis. The previous owner purchased it for $1.13 million ($1,000 psf) from the developer in October 2014, according to a caveat lodged with URA Realis.
Located at the junction of Miltonia Close and Yishun Avenue 1, Skies Miltonia is a 99-year leasehold condo by TG Development, and was completed in 2016. It has 92 years left on its lease. The development comprises 420 units in eight 13-storey blocks, and 10 townhouses. The units range from 484 sq ft one-bedders, to townhouses of 4,672 sq ft.

Tucked away from the main road at Yishun Avenue 1, the three-bedroom unit up for auction has “quiet” surroundings, says Joy Tan, head of auction and sales at ET&Co. The master bedroom comes with an en suite bathroom, while the two other bedrooms share a common bathroom. The unit also comes with a closed-concept kitchen and a household shelter.
Meanwhile, the living room and all the three bedrooms offer partial swimming pool views. Tan adds that the unit is “still in a good, well-kept condition” as the development was completed just three years ago.
Based on caveats, Skies Miltonia saw six resale transactions this year. The most recent transaction was for a 721 sq ft two-bedroom apartment on the 10th floor that changed hands on April 2 at $780,000 ($1,082 psf). Meanwhile, a 1,076 sq ft, three-bedroom unit on the 10th floor was transacted at $1.08 million ($1,003 psf) at end-March.
