Tom is perhaps looking to free up some cash after he and his partner, Amanda, recently welcomed a son named Maxwell.
In December 2019, he purchased an art deco apartment in Bondi for $1.06million.
The 1930s two-bedroom abode is located just 200 metres from the beach, and also boasts a sunroom.

Tom previously said his upbringing in the country helped made him such a good journalist, saying it allowed him to escape ‘group think’ in big cities.
‘You have to get on with people even though you have really different views,’ he said of growing up in Mudgee.
‘In the city, it’s easier to surround yourself with people you agree with and retreat into your comfortable echo chamber,’ he added.
