He managed to secure a buyer for the three-bedroom property, which his family purchased in 1991 for $246,000.

Bobby was a lifesaver on Channel Ten’s hit reality program Bondi Rescue but left the show five years ago.

The sale comes as Sydney’s median house prices have climbed by $129,400 in just six months.

New research shows property price records are being set in more than two-thirds of Australia’s housing sub markets.
