Ex-NRL star turned TV and radio personality Beau Ryan has listed one of his investment properties for December 4 auction.

Having had the Drummoyne apartment quietly up for sale since August, there is now a $975,000 price guide from estate agent Lee ­Dowdall.

It was bought in 2013 when Ryan was coming to the end of his playing career with a one-year stint at the Cronulla Sharks, after his time at Wests Tigers.

They were leaving Paddington after selling for $2,975,000.

It was a good deal as their buyers onsold the home in 2019 for $2,585,000, a near $400,000 loss. The Ryan’s had paid $1.96 million in 2014.

The Drummoyne apartment sits in the Bayview complex on Wolseley St.

The two-bedroom, north-facing unit has water views from the balcony, lounge, and main bedroom. The space spans nearly 100sqm.

It had been pitched at downsizers, professionals and families.

The last two bedroom sale in the tightly held block fetched $975,000 late last year.

Television industry insiders suggest Ryan could be on the Morning Show on Channel 10 in 2022 as a regular co-host amid his busy schedule.

He recently joined Sweat 1000, as an ambassador for the group fitness training firm looking to rival F45.
