A 749 million Yen (6.1 million USD) penthouse apartment in a luxury condominium currently under construction in Kyoto has sold out on the first day of sales.
26 of the building’s 85 apartments were offered for sale last weekend. They were priced from 41.8 ~ 749 million Yen (340,000 ~ 6,100,000 USD). A total of 44 purchase applications were received, with the most popular apartment (a 3-Bedroom unit priced at 329 million Yen, or around 2.7 million USD), receiving 5 applications. The second most popular apartment was another 3-Bedroom unit priced at 379 million Yen (3.1 million USD) which received 4 applications. As is the case with new construction sales, the lucky buyers were drawn via a raffle.
