Jennifer Lawrence, recently crowned the world’s highest-paid actress for the second year in a row, is still working on her real estate game.
The “Hunger Games” star—who, according to Forbes, made $46 million before fees and taxes in the year through June 1, 2016—recently sold her starter condo in Santa Monica,, Calif. Her profit: Less than $280,000.
The property, identified by Variety as belonging to Ms. Lawrence, sold last month for $1.15 million, about a month and a half after it was listed at $1.169 million by Andrew Thurm of Coldwell Banker. The actress reportedly bought the two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom townhouse for $879,000 in 2006, long before winning her Oscar for her role in the romantic comedy “Silver Linings Playbook” in 2012.
It is unclear when the 26-year-old last lived in the 1,413-square foot condo.
Her current home seems a better fit to her ascending career. In 2014, the actress paid over $7 million for a 5,550-square-foot, five-bedroom residence in Beverly Hills boasting a gym, gourmet kitchen and koi pond.
Now, Ms. Lawrence is reportedly looking at properties in Manhattan. According to the New York Post, she recently toured a duplex penthouse in Tribeca, which, with an asking price of $17.49 million, could become her most expensive real estate bet yet.
