Keen to have a nosey through the home of con woman Melissa Caddick? Listing agent Sotheby's says you'll have to cough up $10,000 first.
Intense interest in the coastal Dover Heights home, east of Sydney, of the missing woman has forced Sotheby's into establishing the refundable entry cost to ensure only genuine buyers are allowed in.
It is understood the court-appointed receiver of Caddick's assets is hopeful it sells for at least $10 million.
For stickybeaks who don't have a spare $10,000 to take a look, there's photos and video of the five bedroom, four bathroom home to whet your appetite.
The property boasts 180 degree views stretching along the water to the city's iconic skyline and Harbour Bridge.
The day before she disappeared, the Australian Federal Police and Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) raided her home. That was the last verified sighting of Caddick.
In February 2021, Caddick's decomposed foot was found washed up at Bournda Beach, south of Tathra on the NSW Far South Coast.
Sotherby's managing director Michael Pallier is handling the sale, with expressions of interest closing on October 31.

The financial fraudster bought the house in 2014 for $6.2m, with data from PriceFinder showing the house is currently owned by Caddick and Grimley.
Grimley is the surname of Caddick's parents. The con woman's mother, Barbara Grimley, holds ASIC responsible for her daughter's suspected death, saying she was highly distressed during the raid and was not allowed any food or water.
Prior to Caddick/Grimley buying the Wallangra Road home, it was previously sold for $3.05m in 2007.
There have been a number of recent sales in the street, including number 4 which sold for $6.56m (November 2021); number 9 sold for $7.772m (October 2021); number 35 sold for $11.6m (June 2021); and number 62 which sold for $7.75m (September 2021).
The most expensive house sold in Dover Heights so far this year, was at 39 Portland Street. This six bedroom, six bathroom, two car house sold for $14.25m on February 10.
The court-appointed receiver of Caddick's assets, Bruce Gleeson, said maintenance and minor improvements have been conducted at the home since obtaining vacant possession in May 2022.
"We are also well advanced and close to finalising an application to the Federal Court which will seek sale orders regarding the designer jewellery, clothing and artworks," he said.
