Former rugby league star Ben Barba is selling his Brisbane investment property.

Barba, whose fall from grace has seen him swap a $500,000-a-year league career to being a labourer, paid $769,000 in 2013 for the Everton Park home.

It was bought after his move to the Broncos.

Barba only spent one season at Red Hill before moving to the Cronulla Sharks when the four-bedroom home became a $750 a week rental.

Innov8 Property Sales ­Albany Creek agent Michael Spillane is seeking offers above $849,000.

The vast 1985-built home sits on 1100 square metres.

Barba retains his $1.18 million Caringbah South home that became a rental after the winger headed to France to play rugby union in 2017.

The former Dally M Medallist currently faces two charges of public nuisance following an alleged domestic violence incident on Australia Day at the Townsville Casino with his partner Ainslie Currie, which led to his sacking by the North Queensland Cowboys.

With his league career in tatters, Barba has been a lab­ourer at a Mackay garage door manufacturing business owned by his cousin Adam Doull.

Meanwhile, Barba plays soccer for the Mackay Rangers in the Mackay Premier League.
