The Brisbane bayside property market on the up in 2020

first_imgThis property at 25 Waterloo Esplanade is on the market in Wynnum through Marc Sorrentino of Place Manly. Picture: supplied.The bayside real estate market had a slow start to 2019 but finished the year with a bang and local experts are predicting the favourable conditions will continue through 2020. According the Core Logic data, Gumdale was the best performing suburb in the Wynnum Herald catchment in 2019 with the median house price increasing 28.6 per cent to $1.019 million. The Wakerley median home price was up 4.4 per cent to $787,000 while Manly’s median house price increased 3.6 per cent to $790,000.The three suburbs were also the top performers for the decade with Gumdale, Wakerley and Manly seeing average annual increases of 5.3 per cent, 3.6 per cent and 3.3 per cent respectively. Marc Sorrentino of Place Manly said the bayside market was sluggish at the beginning of the year but “finished with a bang”. “I feel domestic politics with an election and a likely labour win contributed to (the slow start) along with international politics and trade wars,” he said. “Towards the end of the year buyers realised interest rates are at an all-time low and the market is moving up with most predicting a 20 per cent lift in Brisbane.“It’s for these reasons I think … come early January we will see this growth in sales continue and 2020 will be one of the better years in real estate for the bayside.” Marc Sorrentino of Place Manly. Picture: supplied.Mr Sorrentino specialises in high end waterside property. He said Manly was his standout suburb of 2019, taking out the region’s top waterside sales of last year. Mr Sorrentino was responsible for Manly’s most expensive sales of 2019 with 8 Wellington St selling for $1.95 million in November, 67 Oceana Tce selling for $1.88 million in June and 7 Britannia St selling for $1.775 million in January. “Interestingly this year we had many buyers coming from the Bulimba, Hawthorne and Morningside areas,” he said. “Factors such as a second flight path and increased noise along with development making that area even busier seem to be the driving forces for the move to the bayside suburbs.”Mr Sorrentino said there were still bargains to be had at the high end of the bayside market. “If buyers want big water views then it’s on The Esplanade where they’ll get the better bargains,” he said. “Land is about 25 per cent cheaper and you can still pick up a doer-upper for around $1 million, which is so cheap compared to any other waterfront (property) around Australia.” Gail Gobey of Sash and Gable Property said listings were down in the lower to mid-range market but buyer interest was still strong. Gail Gobey of Sash and Gable Property says there was plenty of buyer activity in the bayside market. Picture: supplied.“The sales we can report on in Wynnum, Manly, Manly West and Wynnum West all held their own with the end of the year showing strong growth with our auction clearance rate well above average,” she said. More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus10 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market10 hours agoMs Gobey was optimistic about the bayside market in 2020. “We are seeing investors return to the market – mainly (from) interstate, Sydney and Melbourne in particular. This will see prices maintained or increasing over the next two quarters and we expect a greater increase in property prices in this mid to low price range in the second half of 2020.”When it comes to the acreage market, Deborah Evans of Remax Results said savvy buyers were getting in before the next price jump.“We’re due for some great increases in value and that’s a big motivation for buyers to purchase, the buying market can sense prices will increase for that capital growth,” she said. Deborah Evans of Remax Results says interest in acreage property remains strong. Picture: supplied.Ms Evans said the spring selling season in 2019 was slow to start but predicted strong results in 2020. “I’m very excited about the new year. Everyone has recovered from the banking issues and with interest rates being so low, we’ve got committed buyers that are really looking for a quality location,” she said. Ms Evan said buyers looking at acreage areas such as Belmont, Chandler and Gumdale were chasing privacy, high end homes and easy access to the Brisbane CBD and the bay. “We’re seeing (high inquiry) right across the board and certainly in the higher end (of the market),” she said. “We’ve been selling properties the first couple of weeks on the market with multiple offers.”last_img read more

Gerrard out for season

first_img Gerrard, 33 later this month, has had his best season fitness-wise and his appearance in 220th Merseyside derby was his 36th consecutive Premier League start – equalling his previous longest run set between April 2006 and April 2007. He has played with the shoulder injury for several months but after an early collision with Everton midfielder Leon Osman on Sunday he looked in obvious discomfort. However, it did not prevent him completing 90 minutes – Gerrard has missed only 17 minutes of the league season after being forced off against Newcastle just over a week ago after feeling some pain in the shoulder – and putting in another impressive performance. But with little to play for in their remaining two matches at Fulham and QPR Liverpool have decided it makes more sense for Gerrard to have an operation now to give him an additional couple of weeks’ rehabilitation. “Liverpool have confirmed Steven Gerrard will undergo surgery on a recurrent shoulder problem this week,” said a statement from Liverpool. “The captain’s injury has progressively worsened in recent weeks and requires an operation to cure it. “Gerrard will now miss the final two games of 2012-13, but he is expected to be fit for the start of pre-season training this summer.” Press Association The England skipper will also miss the national team’s two friendlies against the Republic of Ireland at Wembley on May 29 and Brazil on June 2. Gerrard will go under the knife later this week and is expected to return in time for Liverpool’s pre-season programme. center_img Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is to have an operation on his left shoulder which will rule him out of the rest of the season.last_img read more

Football News Marseille Beat Nice in Ligue 1 Amidst Homophobic Abuse

first_imghighlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Paris: Marseille won their first match under new coach Andre Villas-Boas on Wednesday thanks to a 2-1 derby win at Nice in a match that was suspended in the first half following homophobic abuse from the home side’s hardcore supporters. Dimitri Payet moved his side up to 13th on four points with a spot-kick with 17 minutes remaining after Nice midfielder Wylan Cyprien had levelled Dario Benedetto’s first Marseille goal with his own penalty. The France international’s strike also ended Nice’s brief perfect start in the new season’s third round of matches, but the clash was dominated by the over 10-minute suspension ordered by match officials as part of a crackdown on offensive chanting from French football authorities. Players from both teams were escorted from the pitch in the 28th minute of the contest following repeated appeals to Nice fans to stop chants of “Marseille are a bunch of queers” and “Go f*** yourself, Ligue 1”.  Fans also unfurled homophobic banners including one which called Marseille an “LGBT club”. The second chant, sparked by the French league’s attempt to stamp out homophobic chants from the stands, continued as the players returned down the tunnel, where they waited for the still-goalless match to recommence. Villas-Boas said referee Clement Turpin “did the right thing in stopping the match” adding that the abuse was “above all a societal problem”, while Nice coach Patrick Vieira said that he was “absolutely right to interrupt” proceedings.  French equalities minister Marlene Schiappa also congratulated on Twitter Turpin’s “respect for football”, and blasted “a homophobic banner (which) dirtied the stands”. However, goalscorer Cyprien bemoaned Turpin’s decision, saying that “we can’t stop every match each time some idiot does something, otherwise we will never play”. “I am against all discrimination, be it against gays or racist abuse,” he continued to Canal+. But we can’t stop matches as soon as there are insults that have nothing to do with the gay community.”   Crackdown on abuse   Instructions were sent to referees before the start of the season to stop matches if homophobic songs could be heard, and the Ligue 2 game on August 16 between Nancy and Le Mans was halted for a few minutes — a first in France.  That match only resumed after Nancy players pleaded with their fans to stop, but the club was still hit late on Wednesday with a one-game closure for one stand by the French league. The league has mooted the idea of introducing a list of banned words in football stadiums in an attempt to combat homophobia and bad language.On Sunday, a referee threatened to stop Monaco’s 2-2 home draw with Nimes after the away fans insulted the league organisers with offensive language.  The controversy comes just two days after Ineos announced their purchase of Nice, who were aiming to maintain their perfect start against fellow south coast side Marseille, yet to win under new coach Villas-Boas. Bob Ratcliffe, the brother of billionaire Jim Ratcliffe who owns petrochemical giant Ineos, looked on embarrassed from the stands as his team were forced off the field due to their fans’ behaviour.  Earlier, Nigerian starlet Victor Osimhen shot a brace that took him to the top of the Ligue 1 scoring charts as Lille cruised to a simple 3-0 win over Saint-Etienne.The 20-year-old fired in the hosts’ opener shortly before the break and sealed the points with a fine turn-and-strike 15 minutes from the end, taking his tally to four goals from the season’s opening three matches and moving Lille into fourth. Jonathan Bamba had added the second from the spot six minutes earlier after being upended by Mathieu Debuchy.center_img Marseille players were subject to homophobic abuse by Nice fans.The clash was dominated by the over 10-minute suspension ordered by match officials.The move is a crackdown on offensive chanting in Ligue 1.last_img read more

FIFA boss Infantino for Guyana visit next week

first_imgTHE Guyana Football Federation (GFF) announced on Saturday that Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) President, Gianni Infantino, will be visiting Guyana in April.A definite date of arrival or length of stay was not specifically stated, with the GFF only highlighting that the Italian could be in Guyana between Sunday April 9 and Tuesday April 11.Infantino’s visit will mark just the second time a FIFA President has visited Guyana, dating back to Sepp Blatter’s 2001 visit, reportedly for the momentous turning of the sod for what was thought to be this country’s first football stadium,on land under the control of the University of Guyana (UG).According to a release from the GFF, the visit by the leader of global football follows visits within the last six weeks by the CONCACAF President and FIFA Vice-President Victor Montagliani and FIFA Director for Africa and the Caribbean,Veron Mosengo-Omba, in a further show of the confidence regional and global bodies have in the positive direction football is heading in Guyana.“We are delighted that the FIFA President is visiting Guyana so soon after his election last year,” said GFF President Forde.“FIFA and CONCACAF have expressed their support and encouragement for the work of the Guyana Football Federation, and this visit will be a great honour for the whole of Guyana. We are excited about the prospect of building for the future of Guyana’s football with FIFA and President Infantino, as well as showcasing some of the work we are doing here during his visit.” Said Forde.Infantino, 47, is the former General Secretary of Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), who was elected to lead FIFA, which governs and serves 211 member associations around the world, in February 2016 with a mandate to reform football governance, rebuild trust in the game, and increase investment in football development.Under President Infantino, FIFA member associations now have access to at least USD $1.25M per year to support running costs, training, infrastructure and facilities projects, and for developmental programmes and competitions such as youth leagues and women’s football.“This level of funding has the power to transform football in Guyana for generations to come,” Forde noted, while pointing out “we (GFF) are determined to reform and develop football for all in Guyana through sustainable, careful and transparent investment and strong, ethical leadership, in line with the international vision set by FIFA and CONCACAF. We look forward to discussing this further in person with President Infantino this month.”last_img read more

Waite wants to win for seniors

first_imgBrittney Dolgner will play her last two games as a Badger this weekend after a distinguished career.[/media-credit]After falling to Northwestern and Illinois this weekend, the Wisconsin women’s volleyball team failed to qualify for the NCAA tournament for the second straight season. Saturday’s defeat marked the seventh loss in a row for the struggling Badgers, who had not lost seven consecutive matches since 1995. With the losses, the Badgers will finish with a record under .500 for the first time since 1992.Despite the struggles, head coach Pete Waite remains optimistic about the final two games of the season and hopes to send seniors Caity DuPont and Brittney Dolgner out with a pair of victories.“Even though we took two losses on the road this weekend, we’re still seeing bright spots in the line-up and people coming out and improving their games,” Waite said. “We’re looking to this weekend to be a big one for our seniors because it’s their last weekend with us and they’ve done some great things in the program and we want to go out in a great way for them.”Though both Purdue and Indiana have struggled this season, Waite knows that the Big Ten opponents will still provide a challenge for his team.“We’ve got two good teams coming in with Indiana and Purdue,” he said. “Purdue is the one who, early in the season, was predicted to be in the top four in the conference and they have not been. They have the personnel; they’re a very physical team. And Indiana is one of those teams we talked about before. We beat them in five at their place so it was very close and we’ve got a lot to deal with.”Seniors DuPont and Dolgner will play in their final games as Badgers this weekend. Waite recognizes what their presence and leadership has meant to his team both on and off the court.“Even in a season like this, they still think it has been a fun season,” Waite said. “As the only two upperclassmen, they can try and help this group get on track and help things go in the right direction.“Caity DuPont is a great leader off the court. She’s the kind that everybody flocks to and follows and is so responsible. She’s done everything we asked. On the court this year has been a little tough. She’s been a little bit up and down, but she just keeps plugging away. At Illinois on Saturday night, she had one of her best matches of the season.”Dolgner became the first Badger to record more than 1,500 kills, 1,000 digs and 200 blocks in her career and ranks third on the all-time list for kills.“Dolgner was an All-American her sophomore year,” Waite said. “Brittney is a phenomenal athlete and she’s done some great things for us so I know they both want to leave here with a couple of wins, feeling great about things.”With a disappointing season finally coming to a close, it can be tempting to look ahead to next year, but Waite is focused on finishing 2009 first.“We want to look to the future, but at the same time we don’t want to forget about the present, especially for our seniors this weekend,” he said. “We want them to go out on a high note so we won’t totally abandon the things we’re doing, but at the same time we want to be looking at the kids who are the on the court, the young ones. We’ve got three freshmen and a sophomore on the court right now, so that’s a very good sign.”Waite is also encouraged by the signing of three recruits announced last week, Annemarie Hickey, Dominique Thompson and Elise Walch.“We did sign some very, very good players that we’re excited about. Two out of the three won their state championships and were state players of the year. They’re going to add a lot to us next year. But right now, we’ve got to take care of the Big Ten final weekend, so we’ll look to the future, but not too soon.”last_img read more
