SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The sale of a 3,778 sq ft unit at Beverly Hill was the most profitable resale transaction over the week of March 2 to 9. The four-bedroom unit on the eighth floor was sold for $8.16 million ($2,160 psf) on March 3. The unit had been bought for $3.95 million ($1,045 psf) in April 2000. Thus, the seller earned a profit of $4.21 million (107%), which translates to an annualised profit of 3.5% over nearly 21 years.
Beverly Hill is a freehold condominium on Grange Road in prime District 10. It is close to the Orchard Road shopping belt as well as Orchard MRT Station on the North-South Line and Orchard Boulevard MRT Station on the Thomson-East Coast Line. The development is close to the Chatsworth Park Good Class Bungalow (GCB) Area and the landed housing neighbourhood along One Tree Hill.

The second transaction involved another four-bedder on the eighth floor that fetched $7.7 million ($2,038 psf) when it was sold on Dec 20, 2019. This seller earned a profit of $4.48 million (139%) as the unit had been bought for $3.22 million ($852 psf) in April 1995.
