The second top loss sustained over the week — a 40% loss of $1.71 million — was at Helios Residences. The 1,281 sq ft unit on the first floor was purchased for $4.27 million ($3,337 psf) in February 2013 and sold for $2.56 million ($1,999 psf) on July 29.

On the other hand, the biggest profit made over the week was from the resale of a 2,540 sq ft unit at Leonie Gardens in District 9.
