‘It’s a larger property something I wouldn’t usually buy,’ Mr Dilleen told Daily Mail Australia.

‘It’s basically three units in one, so I’m going to rent the two other spaces out and keep the other as a holiday house. I’ve always wanted a holiday house near the beach.’

He has also recently purchased a $875,000 property in Sydney for his mother.

‘It was just for her to live in because I wanted to get her out of the housing commission we use to live in,’ he said.

With property prices plunging amid the pandemic, the real estate guru seized the opportunity to expand his collection – which now stands at 40 investments.
