SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - A 3,057 sq ft, four-bedroom unit on the 25th floor at Ritz-Carlton Residences was sold for $11 million ($3,599 psf) on Dec 14 last year. The unit was purchased for $15.4 million ($5,053 psf) in January 2008. Thus, the seller made a loss of $4.45 million (29%), rendering it the most unprofitable deal for the week of Dec 14 to 28 last year. This translates to an annualised loss of 2.4% over 14 years.
Based on URA caveats, this makes it the most unprofitable resale transaction recorded so far at Ritz-Carlton Residences. The previous record loss involved the sale of a 2,831 sq ft, three-bedroom unit on the 18th floor in March 2016. That unit was sold for $7.1 million ($2,508 psf) after it had been purchased for $10.8 million ($3,815 psf) in June 2013. Thus, the seller suffered a loss of $3.7 million (34%), which translates to an annualised loss of 14% over nearly three years.
