Girl, 6, and her siblings buy £386,000 HOME and it could be worth double by the time she’s 16… here’s how they did it

A six-year-old girl and her siblings have bought a home together worth £386,000.

Ruby, Gus and Lucy McLellan from Melbourne, Australia, pooled together their pocket money to secure their very own property.


The house and land is located in rural suburb Clyde, near Melbourne’s south east and cost $671,000 (£386,000).

Dad Cam McLellan is a property investment expert and was pivotal in helping his kids buy into the booming market, according to 7news.

He explained how he had encouraged his children to invest in housing but made them work to save for their deposit.

The 36-year-old said: “Financially they have each contributed $2000 and they have saved that up."

Their father has predicted that the house will double in value to roughly $1,342,000 (£770,000) in a decade.

Cam added: “The price on that block has already gone up $70,000 (£40,000), so they’ve done well so far."
