BrickX on buying spree, unveil one-bed Potts Point unit at $66 a 'brick'

Fractional property investing platform has announced its newest property to investors in Sydney’s Potts Point, close on the heels of a townhouse it bought in Surry Hills.

The 6/10A Challis Avenue property is a one-bedroom unit. Its initial brick price is $66 and pre-orders start on May 26.

The fintech company divides every property it buys into 10,000 'bricks' and sells those 'bricks' to investors. Investors have the prospect of earning capital returns and monthly net rental income in proportion to the number of 'bricks' owned. 

According to BrickX, the estimated net rental yield from the Potts Point unit is 2.04 percent. In terms of capital returns, historically the suburb has shown a growth of 9.72 percent p.a. over the last five years, according to CoreLogic data.

The one bedroom apartment with study cost $885,000 and it has a 31 percent gearing.

It last traded for $298,000 in 2001, reflecting an annual price growth of seven percent.

The unit is located within 2 km of Sydney CBD. Fringe inner city locations are well sought after by both investors and tenants.

Last week, BrickX launched a townhouse in Surry Hills for an initial brick price of $95.

All 10,000 ‘Bricks’ were reserved amongst the 537 investors in under 1 hour, according to CEO Anthony Millet. 

Tim Lawless, head of Research at CoreLogic and an advisor at BrickX, said figures show unit prices in Potts Point have increased by almost 50 percent over the past five years.

“Considering the large captured working population within close proximity to Potts Point, the rental market has historically been strong within the suburb, which has contributed to ongoing low vacancy rates and high demand from both owner occupiers and investors," said Lawless.

Millet also announced a few changes to launches from now on.Property information will be available two days before pre-orders and it would start at midday, he said.

BrickX already has properties in popular locations: Surry Hills, Darlinghurst, Bondi Beach, Enmore, Mosman, Annandale and Double Bay in Sydney, and Prahran and Port Melbourne, in Melbourne. 

The combined value of all properties exceeds $9.5 million, its website says.
