If sex really does sell, this saucy investment opportunity won’t last long.

Queensland’s first legal brothel has hit the market for the first time in more than two decades with a $900,000 price tag.

The property known as ‘Club 26’ at 26 Magnesium Drive in Crestmead is being sold as a going concern.

The 450sqm building is on approximately 1400 sqm of land and is being marketed by Ray White Marsden agents Jamie Davey and Lauren Mackay.

The property comes with a tenant in-situ.

“This is an excellent investment opportunity in the tightly-held suburb of Crestmead, returning 7.49 per cent, with three per cent annual increases for the right savvy buyer,” Davey said.

“Club 26 is a long-term tenant with a well-established business and is currently on a five-year lease with a further five-year option.”

The tenant has a five-year lease.

While the idea of owning a brothel may sound a little risque, the investment returns might be enough to sway even the shyest of buyers.

“The tenant will provide buyers with confidence, as will the current return of $67,743 net per annum, plus outgoings and GST,” Davey said.

The property is close to the Logan motorway and major arterial roads, has a unique fit-out, and has security fencing with dual lockable front gates.
