SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The sale of a 2,852 sq ft, four-bedroom unit at Nassim Mansion was the most profitable resale transaction during the week of June 7 to 14. The fourth-floor apartment was sold for $8.19 million ($2,871 psf) on June 8. It had previously fetched $5.78 million ($2,026 psf) in February 2007. As a result, the seller made a profit of $2.4 million (42%), which translates to an annualised profit of 2.3% over around 15 years.
Nassim Mansion is a freehold development in the exclusive Nassim Hill residential enclave in prime District 10. The development is close to the Singapore Botanic Gardens, as well as embassies along Napier Road. Luxury developments along Nassim Hill include The Loft, The Nassim and the upcoming 19 Nassim.

According to URA caveats, the most profitable resale deal at the condo is for a 7,115 sq ft penthouse unit on the 10th floor that changed hands for $16 million ($2,249 psf) in June 2007. The unit was acquired for $5.2 million ($731 psf) in February 2004. Thus, the seller made a gain of $10.8 million (207%), which translates to an annualised profit of 40% over three years.
However, caveats show that this particular unit subsequently saw a $1.12 million loss (7%) when it changed hands for $14.88 million ($2,091 psf) in April 2019.
The second-most profitable resale transaction during the week occurred at Goodwood Residence. A 3,089 sq ft, four-bedroom unit was sold for $7 million ($2,266 psf) on June 9. The unit was acquired for $5.18 million ($1,677 psf) in May 2016. Thus, the seller walked away with a $1.82 million (35%) profit, which translates to an annualised profit of 5.1% over six years.
