Model Jordan Stenmark struggles for Bondi tenants

Jordan Stenmark, half of the international model duo the Stenmark twins, has been struggling to find tenants for his Bondi rental bolthole.

Jordan paid $1.13 million for the two-bedroom apartment — nearer Bondi Junction than the banned sand — three years ago.

The split-level unit, with a study and north-facing balcony, was initially listed seeking a $1090-a-week tenant in February. Now he will take $850.

Set on the top level in the 2005-built Oasis block, it had been an $800-a-week rental before Stenmark bought it in 2017.

The Stenmarks, Zac and Jordan, who were at New York Fashion Week in February, only came home to Sydney in late March, to go into isolation at Palm Beach, in a family-owned rustic 1915 timber cottage.

“Somewhere special,” they told their social media followers.

It was 2011 with the chiselled twins working in a cafe when a friend suggested they would make more money modelling.

Rarely spending time apart from each other, the duo spent most of their time growing up in Mosman and weekending at Palm Beach.

Meanwhile, keeping and finding tenants has become a big issue for Sydney landlords amid huge job losses for many occupants.

Last week federal Housing Minister Michael Sukkar clarified what the six-month rental moratorium on evictions means.

“There is a moratorium on evictions, but there’s not a moratorium on the requirement to pay rents,” he said.

“As the PM has said, we need landlords and tenants to come together and there must be an element of sharing the pain.”
