Injured NRL star Jarryd Hayne has had some good news off the field, quickly securing a tenant for his vacant Darlinghurst investment property earlier this month.

Hayne, who has had a tough return at the Eels after a year stint in the Gold Coast after his ill-fated NFL dream, sought a $1,350 a week tenant for the Darlinghurst terrace.

It cost him $1,585,000 in 2013 during happier earlier times at Parramatta.

Hayne put it up for rental at the same price as when he secured a tenant this time last year.

The quick leasing suggests that the terrace market is stronger than the inner city apartment market where rents have been trending lower given more supply.

The terrace had been a $1,100 a week rental following his move to San Francisco in 2015, and was then offered at a reduced rate when construction work was underway next door.

The home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a separate dining area and a north facing terrace and is being offered partly furnished.

Realestate.com.au put the three bedroom median rental as $1150, reflecting a 2.7 percent yield.

Our Estates leasing agent Kay Davis advised pets would be considered.

Darlinghurst three bedroom terraces have moved from a $1.25 million median when Hayne bought to $2.25 million level as at early this year.

Hayne's property portfolio includes two apartments in Parramatta development, Koi.

He spent $600,000 on an apartment on the 16th floor and $605,000 on one on the 17th floor.

They were bought off the plan in 2013, before his departure from the Eels for the United States, with their settlement registered last year following its completion by Dyldam.

He was an owner in Paddington, but scored a windfall result last year when the three bedroom home sold for $2.85 million, having cost $1.13 million in 2013 when it was a two bedder.

The narrow terrace had a designer renovation, with bright pink colours, including the front door.

Hayne's hip means he's not in NSW Origin selection contention.

He was forced off the field in the Eels first win of the season against the Sea Eagles last month, who sit rock bottom having lost 11 of the first 13 games of the season.
