A squatter who scored a Sydney home for absolutely nothing is now set to make more than $1 million from it after putting it up for sale.

Property developer and tax agent Bill Gertos rented out the Ashbury home, in the city’s inner west, for two decades and successfully claimed legal ownership this year after winning a Supreme Court appeal.

The three-bedroom home at 6 Malleny St is being marketed via a private treaty campaign with Mint Property Agents principal Paul Errichiello.

While Mr Errichiello declined to comment about the circumstances surrounding the sale, property records reveal Mr Gertos had recently been trying to quietly offload the home for around $1.4 million to $1.45 million.
