The newest property offering from fractional property platform BrickX has been snapped up by investors in one hour, the company said.

The property, a townhouse in Sydney's Surry Hills, was opened to pre-orders at $95 a 'brick', a term that BrickX uses to explain investors' share in a property. The fintech company divides every property it buys into 10,000 'bricks' and sells those 'bricks' to investors.

BrickX CEO Anthony Millet expected the latest offering to be as popular as its previous property in Sydney's Darlinghurst, launched a few weeks back. The one-bedroom apartment in Darlinghurst was fully reserved at the pre-order phase, BrickX said.

“We’re pleased to offer investors access to yet another inner-Sydney property at an affordable entry price,” Millet said.

“Surry Hills is an enviable location and this townhouse is an easy walk to vibrant cafes, shops and the CBD.” 

The two-bedroom, one bathroom townhouse on Commonwealth Street with a secure car space boasts an open plan design with a paved courtyard.

The company, which has CoreLogic's Tim Lawless on its advisory panel, was recently rated 'Superior' by SQM Research, which gave it four out of five stars based on its usability and depth of property information.

"CoreLogic figures show unit prices in Surry Hills have increased by 54 per cent in the past five years,” Lawless said.

"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."

The property is scheduled to settle on the BrickX platform on May 30. At settlement all pre-ordered ‘Bricks’ will transact and will appear in an investor’s portfolio.

BrickX properties are each put into an individual trust and split 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 company enables members to choose when to invest and when to exit their investments by offering their Bricks for sale on the platform.

BrickX already has properties in popular locations: 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. 

Its investor count has risen to 5,000 since its launch eight months back.
