Four-bedder at Beverly Hill clocks $2.8 mil profit in six years


EDGEPROP (SINGAPORE) - The transaction of a four-bedroom apartment at Beverly Hill clocked the largest price gain for the week of July 26 to Aug 3. The 3,778 sq ft unit changed hands on July 28 for $8.9 million (or $2,367 psf), based on caveats lodged. The 18th-floor unit at the freehold condominium was previously purchased at $6.1 million (or $1,615 psf) in June 2016. Thus, the owner reaped a capital gain of $2.8 million, or 47%, after a holding period of only six years.
