Five in demand Brisbane suburbs

first_img312 Manly Road, Manly WestSAVVY investors might want to look away from the inner city and towards the outer suburbs for strong property growth according to research from LocationScore.com.au.The property research site crunched the numbers across Brisbane’s suburbs and found that demand was strongest in a number of outer suburbs in 2017.Director of research Jeremy Sheppard said the company examined eight key indicators for demand over 12 months to find what suburbs were likely to grow. The top five high performing suburbs were within 10 to 20 kilometres from the CBD, eschewing conventional wisdom that closer to the city was better for price growth. “The reason that there is an increase in demand could be to do with infrastructure or it could be affordability,” Mr Sheppard said. “People could be priced out of the rest of the city so you can find that these affordable suburbs are getting a lot more interest.”To measure demand he included data such as days on market and vendor discounts, as well as less obvious measures like the numbers of online views on property websites like realestate.com.au.Across Brisbane units in Alexandra Hills, Manly West, Carseldine and Sunnybank Hills scored highly in demand. These units at Dorville Road in Carseldine could be set for an increase in value.This high demand for units in these suburbs was in stark contrast to the oversupply of units in the inner city, where oversupply and high vacancy rates have continued to cause a headache for investors.

Bruce McIntyre at Ray White Coorparoo said the strong demand for units in Many West was mainly being driven by owner occupiers rather than investors. “A lot of young families are moving in,” Mr McIntyre said. Before buying up in the in these suburbs Mr Sheppard recommended potential investors check to see if many new housing developments were likely to be approved.“The last thing you want to do is invest in a market that is great right now that might have an oversupply in a few years,” he said.Brisbane’s most in demand suburbs.Manly West, Units, Location Score 74/100Sunnybank Hills, Units, Location Score 70/100Alexandra Hills, Units, Location Score 69/100Carseldine, Units, Location Score 69/100Kenmore Hills, Houses, Location Score 66/100last_img read more

Syracuse looks to avenge regular-season loss in ACC tournament semifinals matchup with Louisville

first_img Published on November 13, 2014 at 12:19 am Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse wasn’t shy about the fact that it wanted Louisville.After the Orange defeated Duke in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament on Sunday, the attention quickly turned to exacting revenge on its most disappointing loss of the season.“I’d love to play them again,” junior goalkeeper Alex Bono said. “Neutral site. Went down a man down there, unfortunately, right or wrong. I’d love to get back after them and get some re-venge.“Just going out there and seeing those red jerseys and walking all over them.”In its best season in program history, Syracuse’s biggest blemish came on Oct. 17, when it lost at Louisville after relenting a one-goal advantage. Cardinals midfielder Tim Kubel tied the game on a penalty kick and SU’s Alex Halis was ejected after receiving a controversial second yellow card with just more than four minutes to play.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith the Orange down a man, Louisville’s Jerry Ramirez scored off a free kick six minutes into overtime and then-No. 2 SU’s eight-game winning streak was over. The No. 1 Orange (15-2-1, 5-2-1 ACC), though, has a chance to redeem itself when it travels to Cary, North Carolina to face the sixth-seeded Cardinals (9-6-3, 4-3-1) in the semifinals of the ACC tournament at 8 p.m. on Friday at WakeMed Soccer Park.“Right after we played them down there, we realized we’d hopefully have another chance to play,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “I’m sure they’re as excited to play us as we are to play them.”After Halis was whistled for pushing another player from behind in the 86th minute of SU’s eventual loss, the home crowd of 3,367 immediately started yelling before referee Ted Unkel gave Halis a second yellow card, despite there not being much contact, backup goalkeeper Matt Stith said.SU right wing Oyvind Alseth said that moment demoralized SU, and a team that works constant-ly on defensive set pieces conceded a goal on one just six minutes into overtime.“It wasn’t just the result. It was the morale and the way we played,” Alseth said. “Letting that goal was pretty disappointing. I think the team got over it pretty quickly. The most important thing is how you react to losses, and we haven’t lost since then.”Its loss to Louisville wasn’t a game that highlighted Syracuse’s weaknesses, it was an anomaly in a season where seemingly every break has gone SU’s way. Six of its first 13 games had been 1-0 wins, and when the Orange jumped out to that advantage in the 55th minute, there was no reason to think the game would be any different.“Yes and no,” midfielder Stefanos Stamoulacatos said when asked if he wished the Orange could have that game back. “Everything happens for a reason. We’re playing them now in the final four, I think we’re going to come up on top this time.”McIntyre jokingly said he owed the ACC an apology for robbing the league of a potential Duke-North Carolina semifinal this weekend, noting that it will probably be harder to sell tickets in Cary now.But whether the Orange plays in front of a packed house or empty bleachers, it’s the chance to get back at Louisville that gives SU extra motivation.“We lost two games this season, and now we get to play one of the teams we lost to,” Alseth said. “It’s a big chance for redemption for us and it is quite a big deal.” Commentslast_img read more

NFF Crisis: Minister Seeks Assistance From FIFA

first_imgOnyebuchi Ezigbo in AbujaIn a bid to find a lasting solution to the lingering tussle over the leadership of the country’s apex football governing body, the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), the Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, said the ministry has set up a seven-man advisory committee, including seasoned technocrats with the FIFA.The committee, which has two weeks to submit its report, is to seek ways of resolving the seeming logjam in the crisis that engulfed the Football House by trying to reconcile the factions involved in the crisis.The Minister, who was at the national secretariat of his party, All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday in Abuja, said he couldn’t have supported the Chris Giwa’s group against the NFF  leadership led by Amaju Pinnick because it will not be in his interest to allow the crisis to escalate.“I have set up a seven-man advisory committee, and from the briefings I got they would start sitting today.  I think, by the end of two weeks, when I receive their report, there would be sufficient advise in the way forward.“They have invited so many stakeholders in the football industry to interact with them. And some of them have worked with FIFA, some of them are working with FIFA I brought them together, so that we can benefit from their experiences,” he said.Lalong said the development in the football industry is unfortunate, especially the leadership tussle, adding that both parties in the conflict “must shieft position from their extreme position to a mid-way in the. Interest of football and in the interest of the nation”.MORE TO FOLLOWShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
