Sunrise sports reporter Mark Beretta is selling his Mosman home and has been forced to knock $1.75 million off the asking price.

The rebuilt double-brick five-bedroom, three-bathroom, four-car home was listed for sale in February with a $15.5 million price guide.

However, according to The Daily Telegraph, Beretta has been forced to lower its asking price to $13.75 million, with the property still appearing for sale on following its scheduled auction on Wednesday night.

Beretta and his wife Rachel initially bought the property for $6.025 million and have spent more than $900,000 on its renovation.

The home offers spectacular views of the harbour and beyond and is just a stroll to Balmoral Beach and Mosman Village.

Other features include a marble induction kitchen, an entertainers’ terrace overlooking lawns and mineral pool, and an outdoor spa and Swedish sauna.

The average price of houses in Mosman is currently $4.8 million, according to data, based on the 177 properties sold in the last 12 months. This is down 7.5 per cent annually.

Despite this, in the December quarter all sellers made a profit in the affluent suburb. According to CoreLogic, Mosman was just one of two Sydney local government areas that made a profit on all sales, with an average gain of $436,000.

In February, home prices dropped 0.14 per cent, CoreLogic found - the smallest monthly fall since May 2022 when the Reserve Bank’s interest rate hikes began.

Surprisingly, Sydney bucked the trend and rose 0.3 per cent in February, to a median price of more than $1 million.
