On the money! Supermodel Emma Balfour, 49, sells her two-story Sydney real estate investment for $ 2M … four times as much as what she paid for

Australian supermodel Emma Balfour has sold its two-story Sydney real estate investment for a cool $ 2,075 million.

The 49-year-old bought the investment in downtown Alexandria in 1999 for $ 500,000, which means she has quadrupled her money in the 20 years since.

Balfour, who is married to her teenage sweetheart, photographer Andrew Cowen, plans to use the wheelbarrow with cash to renovate their Bondi Beach Californian bungalow that she bought for $ 642,500 in 1998.

& # 39; I had a pretty bad fall of my horse about a month ago and it caused that feeling of, if not now, when? & # 39; the model told Domain.com.au on Thursday.

She continued: & # 39; Something like that makes you re-evaluate what's important and remind you not to get younger. & # 39;

She turned her back on her career in international models at the end of that decade and chose to return to Sydney instead.
