Western Bulldogs defender Jason Johannisen has offloaded the Prahran investment property he bought shortly after starring in the club’s drought-breaking premiership.

The 26-year-old sold the one-bedroom apartment to a Sydney-based investor for $435,000 in an off-market deal, Pride Real Estate director Charlie Clemons said.

CoreLogic records show Johannisen paid $422,000 for 1/14 Wrexham Rd in November 2016 — hot on the heels of winning the Norm Smith Medal for being best afield in the Dogs’ first Grand Final victory since 1954.

The footballer had most recently rented out the first-floor pad for $390 per week.

Mr Clemons said the rental yield was a major lure for the buyer.

“It’s a very good investment, it rented well,” the agent said.

“It’s in a ‘70s or ‘80s low-maintenance block in a great area.

“And it had a double garage — there are no double garages in Prahran.”

Johannisen and partner Logan Shine are expecting their first child next month.

The apartment fetched $435,000.

Mr Clemons and fellow Pride director Bernie Vince, a retired Melbourne footballer, have sold a string of properties for Aussie athletes.

They inked a $618,000 deal for former Victorian and Big Bash cricketer Michael Hill’s Elwood apartment last month.

The duo also has sold ex-Carlton, Melbourne and GWS player Tomas Bugg’s Port Melbourne apartment, Australian test cricketer Matthew Wade’s Highett house, and Collingwood high flyer Jeremy Howe’s Elwood home in recent years.
