Manly Sea Eagles rising star Tom Trbojevic has dipped into his new $2.7 million contract by buying up a property on the Manly peninsula.

He has spent $895,000 on a Manly Vale garden apartment.

It's an investment property for the 20 year old fullback, who has quickly found a tenant at $760 a week, reflecting a 4% plus yield.

The two bedroom apartment is seven years old with a partially covered courtyard and a separate enclosed private garden.

Andrew Lutze and Sam Raso at Cunningham's secured the sale.

It had previously sold at $565,000 in 2009.

It's Tom's first property purchase, joining brother and fellow Sea Eagle Jake on the Sydney property ladder.

Jake, two years older than Tom, already has two apartments to his name, kicking off with a two bedroom Narrabeen apartment that cost $680,000 in 2014.

It's been an investment rental and with a $630 a week tenant, it has been giving a slightly higher yield than Tom's.

Jake's most recent purchase, a one bedroom apartment in Brookvale, was bought for $590,000 last July, a few months before signing his new contract through to 2020. 

The brothers are expected to play a key part in Trent Barratt's side's attempts to secure a finals place this year after a disappointing 2016.

Captain Daly Cherry-Evans leads the way in the property market.

He has a four bedroom home in Curl Curl that he paid $1,355,000 for in 2014.

There's also a $500,000 one bedder in Freshwater and a $1.45 million property on Mermaid Beach in Queensland, which was last listed as a $1,300 a week rental.

Coach Trent Barrett and wife Kylie bought for $2.41 million at Freshwater in the Manly heartland in late 2015, having sold for $2.4 million at Barrack Point near Wollongong.

There's no sign of a purchase from fellow Manly brothers Darcy and Joey Lussick yet, who may be the next Sea Eagles to look out for on the property radar.
