Chinese buyers paid 30% ABSD for New Futura, Yong An Park, instead of 60% as reported
The other deluxe apartment property which was scooped up by a Chinese buyer is a six-bedroom townhomes unit at Yong An Park, a freehold development on River Valley Roadway. A caveat was dwelled on May 5 for the sale of the 7,718 sq ft real estate for $14.08 million ($1,824 psf). Quite similar to the unit at New Futura, the buyer of the Yong An Park unit paid an ABSD of 30% ($4.2 million) on the transaction, as the option was worked out prior to Might 17.
Based upon the new cooling measures, an ABSD rate of 60% would apply to international consumers. Nevertheless, for deals where the option to purchase was granted to the buyer on or before April 26 and exercised within 21 days (i.e. on or prior to May 17), the brand-new rates can not apply. Hence the Chinese buyer for the New Futura unit paid for an ABSD cost of 30% or $3.75 million for the acquisition.
The retailer of the unit at New Futura purchased the unit in January 2018 for $9.13 million ($3,395 psf).

It surpasses the former gain of $2.96 million set in December 2022. It was for the transaction of a 2,691 sq ft unit offered for $12 million ($4,459 psf).
