Inside Home and Away star's bargain investment property

Emily Weir bought the Rose Bay apartment for less than half the median price of other apartments in the area.

Home and Away star Emily Weir has purchased a bargain investment property in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs, buying a one-bedroom apartment in Rose Bay for $680,000.

Described as "generous-sized" and within walking distance to Sydney's famous Bondi Beach, the modern one-bedder was sold at auction with Emily buying the apartment for less than half the median price for Rose Bay.

The apartment features a combined living and dining area and a bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and is expected to be rented out between $680-700 a week. Emily also owns and resides in a home in Sydney's Northern Beaches.

The 46sq metre apartment had been guiding around the $600,000 mark before auction, and last sold in 2012 for $382,000.

The current median price for property in Rose Bay stands at $1,473,500.

Since rising to fame on the soap, Mackenzie has also starred in Seven's Dancing With The Stars, something she credits to helping her "get her groove back" after suffering a period of anxiety and burnout post-COVID.

"The story of dance is about survival and leaning on your community to help you. I've used all those feelings to fuel this dance and it was worth it," she said at the time.

She credits the shows to helping her maintain strong boundaries in her life.

"In the past five years, I've learnt to set boundaries and be kinder to myself. I'm grateful to be in Home and Away and DWTS is one of the best things I've ever done," she said.
