Melbourne AFLW star Lily Mithen has scored her second Geelong funding property as she gears up for the 2022 season.
The footballer is used to securing properties for her shoppers in her work as an agent liaison for Infolio Property, however mentioned it was “extra enjoyable” shopping for for herself.
“I didn’t should ahead the main points to anybody else, so I simply gave myself a little bit of a high-five,” Mithen mentioned.
“I’ve acquired a fairly good talent set now so it positively helped.”

She told Property Confidential she initially planned to purchase a villa unit in Melbourne’s west, but instead wound up buying a renovated three-bedroom house at 1/20 Anthony St, Newcomb, for $562,500.
“It’s a great little low-maintenance property and I’m hoping to get tenants in right away,” Mithen added.
“I’m (living) in Melbourne, but I’m a Geelong girl so I’ve got the two investments there — it’s also much more affordable.”
The midfielder has played 35 games for the Demons’ women’s side since her 2017 debut, in addition to pursuing her passion for real estate working at property firm Infolio – where former Essendon AFL captain Jobe Watson is a director.
“I’ve always had an obsession with property,” she said.
“Sometimes I would finish school and go to open homes and pretend my parents were the ones looking, and they would end up getting the follow-up emails (from the agents).”
Mithen has been juggling professional football and her real estate gig for the last 18 months.
“At times it’s a bit tricky when you have to race off and get to training but I’m very lucky that I’ve been able to do both,” she said.
“The season is fast approaching, so I can’t wait to play some footy in front of some fans and watch some live sport again.”
