We can all agree that Sydney real estate prices are ridiculous, but what about a vacant car spot?
“An opportunity exists to purchase an easy access, undercover, secure car space, positioned on the entry level within Macleay Apartments; giving its owner additionally, the use of the outdoor swimming pool,” Silvia Vitale of Laing & Simmons Potts Point advertised on realestate.com.au.
“Macleay Apartments sits in the heart of cosmopolitan Potts Point, adjacent to Woolworths, in one of Sydney’s most desirable precincts and walking distance to the CBD.”
How much did it sell for? Just a meagre $225,000.
Oh, and it doesn’t end there. It also includes a Strata Levy of $209.60 per quarter and $188.90 in Council Rates per quarter.

While some exclaimed their shock online, others were more understanding of the price, with one person writing: “I think I paid about that much in parking fines when I lived in Potts Point so… bargain?”
Another added, “Moving to Potts Point over 25 years ago encouraged me to sell my car. It wasn’t just the parking problem, bogans coming to the Cross on weekends liked to ‘souvenir’ car badges. One Monday morning I found the car unlocked with my seat back and a half-eaten kebab on the floor.”
Would you be willing to spend this much on a car spot?
