At Reignwood Hamilton Scotts, the seller of a 2,756 sq ft, three-bedroom unit made a $2.67 million profit (33%) after holding the property for 4.7 years. This translates into a profit of 6% a year.
The seller raked in the highest profit among non-landed transactions between Aug 22 and 29. According to the caveat lodged with URA, the buyer — a company — bought the unit on Aug 27 at $10.8 million ($3,919 psf).
This marks the only transaction at the 30-storey Reignwood Hamilton Scotts this year, and the most profitable since its completion in 2012. Located on the fifth floor, the unit was purchased by the seller on Nov 30, 2012 in a sub-sale, at around $8.13 million ($2,950 psf).
