BrickX to offer Surry Hills townhouse for investors at $95 a 'brick'

Fractional property investment platform BrickX is set to launch a new property this week in Sydney’s Surry Hills for investors, close on the heels of its investing into a unit in nearby Darlinghurst.

The townhouse in Surry Hills comprises two bedrooms, one bathroom and comes with parking. BrickX will offer the initial ‘Brick’ at $95 to investors. 

The pre-order phase will be open from May 19 with settlement scheduled for May 30.

BrickX buys properties and divides them into 10,000 units or “Bricks”. Investors may then earn capital returns and monthly net rental income in proportion to the number of Bricks owned. 

The platform allows members to choose when to invest and when to exit their investments by offering their ‘Bricks’ for sale on the platform. 

“We are expecting the Bricks to be reserved quickly,” BrickX said in a release.

The townhouse is currently tenanted at $860 p.w.

Surry Hills units have had an historical capital growth rate of 10.42% per annum over the last 5 years, and has a strong rental market. It is particularly popular with young professionals.

Unit prices in Surry Hills have increased 54% in the last 5 years, according to CoreLogic data.

“Surry Hills has a strong rental market and is particularly attractive to young professionals who flock to the area to enjoy the fantastic restaurants and cafes, coupled with a short walk to work for the majority who work nearby or in the CBD,” said Tim Lawless, the head of research at CoreLogic who is also on the advisor panel of BrickX.

The combined value of all properties -- Sydney and Melbourne -- held by BrickX exceeds $9.5 million, its website says.

Just last month, BrickX announced its cheapest yet offering with a ‘brick’ priced at $57 for a one-bedroom apartment at 12/84-90 McLachlan Avenue, Darlinghurst, on Rushcutter’s Bay border.
