JLL also closed the estate sale of 21 Daffodil Drive, located off Upper Thomson Road, which was sold at SGD 4.35 million after nine bids were received. The subject property is currently a single storey detached unit which is ideal for redevelopment, given its corner and square land plot, and its proximity to Thomson Plaza, MacRitchie Reservoir and Nature Reserve, Singapore Island Country Club, and upcoming Upper Thomson MRT station.

4 Jalan Bahasa, located off Dunearn Road, and near the Swiss Club plots, was the third successful landed property at SGD 12.3 million. Also a corner and square land plot, the subject property is currently a 2-storey detached unit suitable for redevelopment, given its prime District 11 and CCR (core central region) locality. This unit attracted 18 bids after it opened at SGD 11.5 million.

These three successful sales indicate that there are keen buyers in the market looking for landed units within good locations that are suitable for redevelopment. One such potential property is a two-storey beach-front bungalow along Pasir Ris Road, located directly opposite Pasir Ris Beach, on a land of approx. 10,991 sq ft, with opening price of SGD 8.45 million. While not successfully auctioned off, it has garnered keen interest post auction.

JLL also auctioned off a 4-bedroom duplex penthouse unit at Seascape at Sentosa Cove for SGD 6.35 million or SGD 1,497 per square feet. The previous owner purchased the unit from the developer at SGD 11.0 million or SGD 2,594 per square feet in December 2011, translating in a loss of SGD 4.65 million or 42.3 per cent.

Said Mok Sze Sze, Head of Auctions for JLL Singapore: "We are off to a good start for the last quarter of the year, with October sales value making up almost half the total sales value of SGD 88.9 million year to date. We see renewed interest in the auction market, especially for landed units in favourable locations with redevelopment potential."​
