Over the years, both the cricketers have built their portfolios and own several properties worth AUS $ 18 million. <p></p> <p></p>In a chat with <em>the Australian</em>, Warner had once mentioned: "My financial adviser told me: If you have to work after cricket, I haven t done my job properly . He holds a portfolio worth AUS $ 10 million. Warner had purchased an oceanfront house at Maroubra in Sydney that costed AUS $ 4 million on December 2015. In May 2016, a planning application was lodged to demolish the existing building and construct a new five-level home, which was approved in February 2017. <p></p> <p></p>Warner, wife Candice and his daughters were supposedly to move to the new house last year itself. However, the project has been stuttering which in turn has left the neighbours fuming. <p></p> <p></p>[caption id="attachment_701809" align="aligncenter" width="650"]<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/6c8ac89054a19aab9e4ffdc7014a9799.jpe"><img class="size-full wp-image-701809" alt="David Warner s property at Mermaid Ave, Maroubra.

One of the neighbours even issue a complaint about the standstill project: "Trucks have been coming and going for months, but then we don t see anything for a couple of weeks. We expected this to be built by now he bought the place ages ago and it s not pretty to look at. I pity the neighbours who live right next door, as they ve had to live next to a building site. If I were him, I d make it extra secure." <p></p> <p></p>On the other hand, Smith bought a 3 BHK cottage Balmain that faces the Sydney Harbour bridge. The property was worth AYS $ 4 million in June 2017. It already had an approved planning application for it to be demolished but Smith has let it stand. <p></p> <p></p>[caption id="attachment_701810" align="aligncenter" width="649"]<img class="size-full wp-image-701810" alt="7 Johnston St, Balmain East, owned by Steven Smith Picture Courtesy: www.thisischriswhite.com (news.com.au)" src="https://www.cricketcountry.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Capture5.jpg" width="649" height="367" /> 7 Johnston St, Balmain East, owned by Steven Smith Picture Courtesy: www.thisischriswhite.com (news.com.au)[/caption] <p></p> <p></p>In fact, Smith himself is looking to rent two of his properties in the same area. Both have been on the market for months now. One is a $1.3 million investment townhouse and the other is a knockdown-rebuild. <p></p> <p></p>Both the properties are being handled by real estate company Cobden &amp; Hayson. Beneath the three storey home is a huge apartment whose construction has already begun and will not be completed until 2019. <p></p> <p></p>With Warner and Smith strapped off from CA's 2018-19 contract list and with no IPL deals on hand, the duo might have to sell off some of their properties, to pay off the renovation costs of the existing properties. <p></p> <p></p>Warner and Smith earned AUS $ 2 million per annum from CA. Now, the pair will lose out of AUS $ 2.4 million in the wake of the scandal.
