West Tigers coach Ivan Cleary can have a smile on his face away from the field as he sold his former Collaroy home in just 15 days.

There's not been much to smile about on the field for Cleary, who has won only two of his first six games in charge of the Tigers, including a 36-0 drubbing by the Broncos recently.

Star players Mitchell Moses, Aaron Woods and James Tedesco have signed elsewhere and the club sit second bottom of the latter and four points off eight placed Canberra.

The former Sea Eagle will be pleased however with the quick sale of his first property purchase, although he's not heading in to Tigers heartland.

Cleary has said he will be staying by the beaches after selling the home with a price guide of $2.2 million through Paul Franks at Ray White Mona Vale.

Cleary paid $332,500 for the home in 1995 during the season he spent as a fullback at the North Sydney Bears.

It was the same year he married wife Rebecca, the sister of former Bears forward forward Josh Stuart.

The couple lived in the home when Cleary left the Bears to play for the Roosters for the next three seasons.

The Hay Street home on nearly 700 square metres has three bedrooms, a timber kitchen and a backyard with detached studio and undercover entertaining deck.

They rented out the home while they were in New Zealand during Cleary's stint with the Warriors and moved to a larger home when they came back.

Cleary spent two separate stint with the Warriors. He spent two years as a player from 2000 and then five years as the head coach from 

He led the team to finals footy in four of his six seasons in charge.

It was tougher task when he took over the out of form Penrith Panthers in 2012.

The Panthers only made the finals once in his three years in charge before he was sacked in October 2015.

In April, Cleary took over from Jason Taylor at the helm of the West Tigers.

Ivan and Rebecca have four children including NRL rookie Nathan who plays for the Panthers.
