"It has had the same tenant for 16 years so it was tired, and the price was reflective of its condition," Ms Griffiths said.

"However, it had a high yielding return and a long term tenant, which is always great for any investor."

According to CoreLogic data, the median unit sale price for Slacks Creek was $206,000.

Ms Griffiths described the unit investment market as "buoyant".
