Big shake-up in Queensland’s most expensive suburbs

first_imgThe list of most expensive suburbs to buy in Queensland has had a shake-up. Picture: SuppliedAfter years of domination, inner-city Teneriffe has been dethroned as the most expensive place to buy a home in Queensland, with latest data showing fresh faces in the top 10.After years of being overshadowed by inner-city luxury “newbies” like Newstead and New Farm, one of the traditional bluechips — Ascot — has snatched the crown as the suburb with the highest median house price in the state.In a sweeping move, an array of fresh faces have hit the top 10 most expensive places to buy in Queensland, including Sunshine Beach in Noosa, Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast, Chevallum on the Sunshine Coast, and Upper Brookfield in Brisbane’s west.MORE:Crunch time for buying in BrisbaneThe Queensland house you can build in three hoursREA Group chief economist Nerida Conisbee said Brisbane could be in for a major ramping up of demand in 2019.“Brisbane is holding up a lot better than Sydney and Melbourne. It’s up against the same sort of challenges as those two with unit oversupply, credit crunch but it didn’t get as expensive and there does seem to be quite a lot of jobs growth supporting market demand,” she told The Courier-Mail.“So the outlook for the premium market is quite good. With the highest median house price at $1.6m that’s still way better than Sydney and Melbourne, and if there is jobs growth as well we could see a ramping up in Brisbane.Ms Conisbee said investors were also “really spooked” by Sydney and Melbourne in 2018 so were “likely to be looking across that South East Queensland region for opportunities this year”.51 Palm Avenue, Ascot, is on a 1,138 sqm block and on the market for $3.5m.31 Beatrice Terrace, Ascot, is for sale at $2.85 million.Ray White Ascot agent Damon Warat said Ascot was coming off a great year, with demand surging.“Our biggest difficulty as agents now is trying to find houses to sell,” he said.“Ascot is an area with a culture, a lot of character homes, it’s got a great community and great schooling — all these factors set it apart from its neighbours.“It’s more of a family suburb than Teneriffe and New Farm. It’s generally where professionals aspire to move to before they start a family. We get a lot who work overseas and come back to have a family home in the area.”CoreLogic principal researcher Cameron Kusher said while “Brisbane certainly does have an affordability advantage relative to the southern capital cities”, job prospects would be key to further increases in migration.“Weaker career prospects outside of Sydney and Melbourne is likely to weigh on any decision to move to Qld from the southern states. Our belief is that through 2019 housing market conditions will be similar to 2018’s conditions with the possibility that value growth may accelerate a little late in the year.”75 Charlton Street, Ascot, is on the market for $2.99 million.This renovated home at 19 Upper Lancaster Rd, Ascot, is currently on the market.Carl Mogridge, director at The Property Agency, and his wife Dr Philippa Mogridge, a dentist, both 34, plan to move to Ascot in March from their current home in Sydney’s Bondi.“The basic premise of moving back to Brisbane was we acquired a new dental centre, Philippa did, and I’m also going to expand our creative agency into the Brisbane market as well. The second reason is we’ve got a little baby daughter Victoria (seven months old) and we’re moving back closer to family. And it’s a lower cost of living compared to the eastern suburbs of Sydney.”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus14 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market14 hours agoThey plan to rent out their two bedroom Bondi apartment for $1200 a week – which is about the same cost as renting a two storey Queenslander in Brisbane’s inner-city.“The average house price in Bondi is just ridiculous, so it excludes a lot of people from buying. So getting a beautiful house in Ascot which is the premier suburb in Brisbane for us, very eastern suburbs, our dollar will travel further.”Queensland’s most expensive suburbs:(Based on median house price)Ascot $1,600,000Chandler $1,580,000Teneriffe $1,577,500New Farm $1,500,000Sunshine Beach $1,500,000Mermaid Beach $1,456,000Bulimba $1,320,000Hamilton $1,302,500Chevallum $1,300,000Upper Brookfield $1,280,000(Source: CoreLogic Market Trends)FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOKVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:51Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:51 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD576p576p432p432p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Jaguars 3-day Franchise League launched

first_img… Set to commence on August 26By Rajiv BisnauthAIMING at developing the standard of Guyana’s cricket and ultimately cricket in the region, the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) yesterday launched a groundbreaking League, dubbed the ‘Jaguars three-day Franchise League’. The new League will abandon the traditional senior inter-county structure and comprise eight franchise teams countrywide namely: Upper Corentyne (Nigg to Skeldon), Lower Corentyne (Albion to New Amsterdam), West Berbice, East Coast Demerara, Georgetown, East Bank/Upper Demerara, West Demerara and Essequibo.In this new franchise system more than 100 quality players will vie for places in the national teams in the various formats.During the official launching, Secretary of the GCB, Anand Sanasie, told the gathering that the initiative is the perfect opportunity for more local players to get more involved in the game so that they can showcase their talent at a higher competitive level.“Everyone must have a chance not only those who have earned professional or academy contracts,” the GCB secretary said.Sanasie pointed out, that despite the huge cost to offset the entire tournament, the GCB is financially strong at least for this year, adding that each player and support staff will be paid $5 000 per day once cricket is played.Also making brief remarks was GCB president Drubahadur, who expressed optimism that the League will further develop the game locally and also West Indies cricket.GCB’s Marketing Manager Raj Singh in giving an overview of the League, disclosed that the new system has been carefully designed to reinvigorate all aspects of cricket in Guyana.“This franchise system is aimed at allowing interested parties to invest in the development of the team of their choice and have a greater stake in the actual composition, planning and development of their respective teams.“This is a glorious opportunity for everyone to take ownership of their teams and its officials. We strongly feel that this new structure will bring more spectator interest to the game of cricket in Guyana,” Singh divulged.Singh pointed out that in order to ensure that each franchise team is competitive as possible, the GCB has allocated the 33 cricketers under contract with West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and Cricket Guyana Inc. (CGI) within the eight teams in a fair and transparent manner, with the remainder of the teams coming from other players drawn largely from the eight geographic areas.It was also pointed out that each franchise team can have two international players at their disposal, as well as two players out of their geographical area.Singh further indicated that several franchise-holders are at various stages of negotiations with the GCB regarding the ownership of a team.To this end, Singh said that interesting franchise-holders can take ownership of a team of their choice, preferably in the geographical area of their business enterprise.“There will be contracts to be signed between the franchise owners and GCB clearly outlining each party’s duties and responsibilities, with the local boards lending support and technical personnel in the general administrative plans of the franchise,” Singh said.Each franchise will have its own base ground facility for practice, training and games along with its own set of officials.It was confirmed that the Upper Corentyne franchise will have Port Mourant Community Centre ground as its base ground facility while Lower Corentyne will be based at the Albion Community Centre ground.West Berbice will travel to Young Warriors Cricket Club ground, East Coast Demerara at Enmore Community Centre ground. Georgetown will be based at GCC, East Bank/Upper Demerara will be at Everest, West Demerara will be at Wales and Essequibo was confirmed to be based at the Imam Bacchus ground.The management officials were also confirmed and are as follows: Upper Corentyne (coach Winston Smith, Manager/Assistant coach Delbert Hicks), Lower Corentyne (coach Julian Moore, Manager/Assistant coach Andre Percival), West Berbice (coach Adrian Amsterdam, Manager/Assistant coach David Black), East Coast Demerara (coach Esaun Crandon, Manager/Assistant coach Jitlal Jowharilall), Georgetown (coach Colin Stuart, Manager/ Assistant/coach Garvin Nedd), East Bank/Upper Demerara (coach Clive Grimmond, Manager/Assistant coach Rohan Sarjoo), West Demerara (coach Rayon Griffith, Manager/Assistant coach Dhanpaul) and Essequibo (coach Michael Franco, Manager/Assistant coach Forbes Daniels).The franchise teams will play each other once with the League set to conclude on October 9.last_img read more

USG President and VP reflect on their term

first_imgGraphic by Daily Trojan staffAfter a year, the terms of Undergraduate Student Government President Austin Dunn and Vice President Morgan Monahan are coming to an end. During their presidential campaign, the two advocated their vision to “Achieve More” as representatives of the 19,000 undergraduate students they serve. Some of the progress Dunn and Monahan have made, via resolutions in the Senate, include the creation of a fall break initiative, the implementation of free hygiene products in campus restrooms and a rideshare partnership between USC and Lyft.  Despite these  accomplishments, Dunn and Monahan agreed the most defining moments of their term occurred in the face of spontaneous crises.“The biggest thing that strikes me this year is responding in real time to all of the issues that happened in our nation, because it affects communities and students on our campus,” Monahan said. “So, for instance, [the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals  initiative] was a big thing that we pulled together really quickly to support students.”When the administration of President Donald Trump announced its decision to end DACA, the USG Senate passed a resolution to allocate $10,000 to aid DACA students’ application renewal fees.While the DACA fund was a highly publicized amenity to students, Monahan expressed concern regarding a general lack of student awareness of on-campus resources, such as free legal counseling and complimentary shuttles to LAX. She and Dunn each referenced  examples of USC students who had learned about these useful resources too late in their academic career. “It is definitely an ongoing battle,” Dunn said. “We want to institutionalize initiatives that come out of USG in order to make them a part of campus culture, which would take some of the publicity efforts out of our hands.”To address this, Monahan repeatedly cited the upcoming mandatory first-year wellness course as a potentially useful tool to inform incoming Trojans of the resources available on campus.“I would say something that really spoke to me this year is that there is definitely a culture change happening on our campus,” Monahan said. “And I think one of the big catalysts of that is the first-year course initiative that we’re trying to do.”Mental health and mindfulness were key issues addressed across USG this year, in several initiatives such as free access to the Calm mobile app — which promoted mindfulness and meditation — and the passing of a fall break resolution. Although it will not be implemented until 2019, the fall break initiative was strongly supported by students and serves the purpose of alleviating academic stress and improving mental health.“We actually had a meeting with Provost [Michael] Quick on Jan. 25 and we got a date for fall break,” Monahan said. “It’s going to be the fall semester of 2019 in week eight.” The idea of a fall break is one that spawned and receded several times over the past five years, but a resolution finally passed the USG Senate, Graduate Student Government Senate, Academic Senate and Faculty Senate in Fall 2017. Much of the force behind this initiative was provided by an Engemann Student Health Center study, which showed that a spike in demand for counseling repeatedly occurs from weeks 8 to 10 in the fall semester.Dunn recognized some confusion among students and faculty regarding when the new break will be implemented and hopes to address it.“Our hope is, before the end of our term, to have a memo released to the entire university community signed by us and the provost making that totally publicized,” Dunn said.Monahan elaborated on her vision for how the first-year wellness course can create a safer, better-informed and more tolerant atmosphere on campus.“This first year course for all incoming freshman, spring admits, and transfer students will really create a culture of accountability, looking out for each other, and respect,” Monahan said. “And culture doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It’s going to be impacted by things that happen on campus.”Dunn said the shifting norms on campus were his and Monahan’s favorite development during their administration. He referred to the fall break resolution as an example of how this progress is manifesting.“If we had to sum up what we are most proud of, in one word, it would be culture,” Dunn said. “Just because these things we’re listing have to do with that. Fall break focused on destigmatizing mental health and supporting our students in times of crisis in weeks eight to ten.”In the aftermath of Christina Yokoyama’s termination as the former director of the Norman Topping Student Aid Fund, many USG officials and students questioned the ability of students to influence decisions made by the USC administration. Dunn acknowledged these concerns, and explained he has tried to address them by meeting with administrators more often.“In my entire time as vice president [during the 2016-2017 term], I only saw [Vice President for Student Affairs] Ainsley Carry three times,” Dunn said. “I now see him weekly, usually even more than once a week. I couldn’t ask to be better supported by the provost. In that realm, that is definitely something that we have made great strides in but that’s not to say that everything we say to the provost, Dr. Carry, or [President C. L. Max] Nikias is immediate policy.” When asked what advice she would offer to the current USG candidates, Monahan emphasized personal wellness and trying to preserve oneself.“Wellness is an important aspect of this and making sure that you fill up your own cup before you fill up others,” Monahan said. “And just make sure you are reaching out to as many people as possible, but doing it in a responsible manner for yourself.”Dunn added that candidates ought to remember what inspired  them to join student government, and to stay true to those motives.“Every student who’s running or who gets involved in student government has a reason for having done so,” Dunn said. “And I think that one thing that campaigns and the dirtiness of elections and the stress of life can often take away from staying at your core.”Dunn concluded by reminding the next USG president to seek assistance from all members of USG, and to work on every issue as a team regardless of who receives the spotlight.“Even though I might be the first point of contact on a particular issue, or I might have to give a speech on a particular thing, I am never doing that as me; I am always doing that with USG as my team,” Dunn said. “To know that you have the support of your team behind your back is pretty great. My biggest piece of advice is to rely on the amazing people around you.”last_img read more

Men’s golf ties for third place at the Southwestern Invitational

first_imgUSC will rely on the trio this upcoming season to maintain its level of play. If the Trojans look to continue their season beyond the Pac-12 Tournament and restore their preseason No. 11 rank, under-par play toward podiums in their final five tournaments will be necessary. The Trojans got off to a rough start on day one, with five players shooting over par and the team finishing seventh in a field of 12. Later in the day, USC freshman Yuxin Lin and junior Leon D’Souza scored key birdies in the tournament’s second round that propelled USC to seven shots behind leader Pepperdine.  It was D’Souza’s 5-under 67 scorecard that solidified the second place standing. In the third and final round of the invitational, he birdied seven holes for a 5-under performance that would further subtract from his leading 6-under from the two prior rounds. By the end of the day, Lin dropped his score by four, going from 2-over par to 2-under par. This allowed the team to drop to 289 on the scoreboard in the second round and pass No. 18 UCLA, No. 27 Stanford and No. 29 Louisiana State.  “We’re definitely trending in the right direction,” D’Souza said. “Everyone had a good run this week, if not today. We’re all playing good right now and we’re going to Hawaii on Monday, so hopefully we can continue moving on from here.” Junior Issei Tanabe tapped in three birdies on holes 15, 16 and 17 and bogied 18 to leave him at 1-under. Lin had a key eagle on 12 that helped him complete a 3-under 69 performance. “We both made a bunch of birdies throughout the day, and [hole] 17 was a tough hole and I hit a good shot but it just went a little too far,” D’Souza said. “I just gave myself a really tough up-and-down so it was just a small mistake.” D’Souza followed the same pattern by bogeying to 4-under. He then chipped in two birdies, but a fatal mistake on hole 17 led to an additional bogey D’Souza could not recover from. The tournament marked the beginning of the Trojans’ spring slate, and their performance has drastically improved after finishing in last place at the Cypress Point Classic last fall.  The No. 43 USC men’s golf team tied its own season-high by finishing in third place Tuesday at the Southwestern Invitational at the North Ranch Country Club. No. 6 Pepperdine shot 14-under while the Trojans tied with No. 10 Arizona State, finishing with a 3-over 867 team total. The players’ stamina was the deciding factor during the back-and-forth battle for second place during the tournament’s final 18 holes of play. Both the Sun Devils and the Trojans had two players finish under par at the turn of the course, but the Trojans reached 9-under in the final stretch to tie with ASU.  Senior Kyle Suppa had five straight birdies, a season record, between holes 12 and 16 that dropped his card to 3-under. Suppa eventually returned to par again following a bogey and a double bogey.  Even though the USC junior finished one short of the individual podium, the Southwestern Invitational marks D’Souza’s highest tournament placement as a Trojan.  D’Souza joins Tanabe and Lin as standout players to watch for the remainder of the Trojans’ season. Previously, Tanabe carded four 68-shot rounds in the fall while Lin earned a berth into both the U.S. Open and the Masters after winning the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship last November. Freshman Yuxin Lin finished round one of the tournament two under par while leading USC to a top-three finish. (Photo courtesy of USC Athletics) D’Souza was tied for first on the leaderboard with Pepperdine’s redshirt senior Sahith Theegala for the entirety of the tournament. The back eight of the final round is where the invitational’s winner is often decided. Theegala bogeyed 11 but quickly made up for it with two birdies on 12 and 16 to finish with a 6-under 66 round.  USC will be back on the course next Thursday to compete in the Amer Ari Invitational in Waikoloa, Hawaii. The Trojans will face off against No. 3 Georgia Tech, No. 6 Pepperdine, No. 21 Auburn and No. 25 Texas, among a host of other opponents.last_img read more
