Last week on 21 June, a 3-bedroom unit was sold at Trevose Park for S$3.22 million. This is the second highest 3-bedder sold in the development after a ground floor unit sold at S$3.265 million last year.
At 1,679 sq ft, it’s currently the highest-selling 3-bedroom unit for a non-ground floor unit. The previous high for a non-ground floor unit was set in 2019 for S$3.195 million. In comparison, the S$3.265 million unit is on the ground floor and comes with a bigger space at 1,948 sq ft.
This transaction also marks the fourth time a 3-bedroom unit was sold above S$3 million in the freehold development.
Owners made S$1.795 million profit
Another notable aspect about the sale was that it reaped the owners S$1.795 million in profit after holding the property for 23 years, revealed Aaron Wan, Senior Group District Director of PropNex Realty.
So what made the sellers sell it after so many years?
According to Aaron, who sold the unit, the sellers are not based in Singapore, and have been renting it for a long time. So they decided to cash out to buy something newer instead.
How about the buyers then? What made them buy it?
“The buyers are currently tenants in Trevose Park and have been eyeing for a good unit to buy for a long time to make it their own home.”
And it looked like the buyers were really eager to make it their home. The deal was closed by the third day of viewings.
Completed in 1991, Trevose Park is an old condo in the Stevens area. More importantly, it’s located close to prime schools such as St Joseph’s Institution, Singapore Chinese Girls’ School and Anglo-Chinese School (Barker Road).
