SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) – Capping off 2019, the most profitable deal during the two weeks of Dec 17 to 31 occurred at the Beverly Hill condominium on Grange Road. A 3,778 sq ft, four-bedroom unit on the eighth floor changed hands for $7.7 million ($2,038 psf) on Dec 20. It had been bought for $3.22 million ($852 psf) in April 1995. Thus, the owner made a profit of $4.48 million (139%), or an annualised profit of 4% over almost 25 years.

Located in prime District 10, Beverly Hill is a 37-year-old freehold condo developed by Far East Organization. It comprises a 23-storey block with four-bedroom units of 3,778 sq ft, as well as penthouse units of 7,556 sq ft. This was the second transaction at Beverly Hill in 2019. The other transaction involved a four-bedroom unit on the 11th floor that resulted in a loss of $520,000 (6%) for the seller. That unit changed hands for $8.1 million ($2,144 psf) in October last year, after the owner purchased it for $8.62 million ($2,282 psf) in July 2007. This translates to an annualised loss of 0.5% over 12 years.
The second most profitable transaction during the period in review occurred at The Grange at Grange Garden. A 2,303 sq ft, four-bedroom unit on the 17th floor changed hands for $6 million ($2,605 psf) on Dec 23. It had been bought for $4.15 million ($1,802 psf) in February 2015. The seller made a $1.85 million (45%) profit, or an annualised profit of 8% over almost five years.
