SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The most profitable deal during the week of Jan 4 to 11 was the sale of a 3,520 sq ft, four-bedroom unit at Juniper at Ardmore. This unit on the second floor was sold for $10.25 million ($2,912 psf) on Jan 5, after it had been bought for $7 million ($1,989 psf) in April 2017.
