Data is for the 12-month median price for houses, based on at least 30 sales in a suburb) This six-bedroom, five-bedroom house at 34 Mareeba Rd, Ashgrove, is for sale. Ashgrove is one of Brisbane’s million-dollar suburbs.BRISBANE’S elite million-dollar club is growing despite the nation’s housing market being in the grip of an economic recession and a global pandemic.New data from Realestate.com.au shows a number of significant sales over the past 12 months propelled seven suburbs into the exclusive price threshold, with the city now boasting 23 suburbs with a median house price of $1 million or more — up from 16 a year ago.Bardon and Grange are newcomers to the club for the first time on record, and only one suburb dropped off the list — Balmoral, with its median house price slipping from $1.07 million in fiscal 2019 to $882,500 in fiscal 2020. This five-bedroom, two-bathroom house at 6 Currell Circuit, Samford Valley, is for sale.One of the more unlikely suburbs to become one of Brisbane’s newest million-dollar hot spots is Samford Valley, with its median house price jumping from $922,500 to $1.1 million in the past 12 months.For the price of some three-bedroom units in the Sydney CBD, you can buy a sprawling acreage estate in the suburb, which is about 20km southeast of Brisbane’s CBD.Clayfield and Ashgrove, in the city’s north, Fig Tree Pocket in the west, and West End, in the inner south, are also new additions to Brisbane’s million-dollar club in the past 12 months. This property at 17 Castlewood Court, Samford Valley, recently sold for $1.21m.Realestate.com.au chief economist Nerida Conisbee said that while more suburbs had entered the million-dollar club over the past 12 months than had fallen out, there were still opportunities to buy into one of those suburbs for six figures.“It’s still possible to buy into premium suburbs for under $1 million in Brisbane, unlike Sydney or Melbourne where that price tag doesn’t necessarily get you into an expensive suburb,” Ms Conisbee said. Realestate.com.au chief economist Nerida Conisbee. Image: AAP/Monique Harmer.Ms Conisbee said house prices were largely steady despite the market conditions because they were being supported by stimulus measures, a stable banking system, mortgage payment freezes and relative confidence among buyers. “The premium property market has been one of the most stable property markets during the COVID-19 pandemic,” she said. “This is likely due to the strong momentum leading into the shutdowns, and because highly paid sectors haven’t seen widespread unemployment yet.” This house at 29 Dublin St, Clayfield, has just hit the market.Georgie Haug of Belle Property Samford said she was not surprised Samford Valley house prices were seven figures.Ms Haug said buyer inquiries were up 40 per cent, with a growing number of families seeing the value in lifestyle properties in the suburb. “I sold two properties by walking around the property and chatting on FaceTime to Sydney buyers,” Ms Haug said.“The only buyers in Australia who have the perception that Samford is ‘too far out’ are Brisbane residents. You can’t move 7km out of Sydney in comparison.” Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:58Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:58 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD432p432p216p216p180p180pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Sheffield United set to sign Rodwell on short-term deal

first_imgRelatedPosts Fulham keen on Lookman loan deal EPL: Calvert-Lewin treble fires Everton past West Brom EPL: Everton set to compound West Brom woes Sheffield United are set to sign former Everton and Manchester City midfielder Jack Rodwell on a short-term deal until the end of the season, manager Chris Wilder said on Friday. The 28-year-old free agent left Blackburn Rovers at the end of his contract in the close season. He started training with the Blades last month amid reported interest from a number of teams including Parma and AS Roma. “It will be a short-term deal until the end of the season, with the option of extending,” Wilder told a news conference ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup third round clash with National League (fifth tier) side AFC Fylde. The versatile midfielder, who can also slot into defence, last played in the English Premier League for Sunderland in May 2017. “Hopefully we can kickstart his career. He’s certainly got the desire and from a physical point of view there are no issues. I have sat down with him for a long time and spoke about his career going forward. It aligns with the club’s goals,” Wilder added. Reuters/NAN.Tags: Chris WIlderEvertonJack RodwellManchester CitySheffield Unitedlast_img read more

FAI takes legal advice over report

first_img Press Association Irish football chiefs are taking legal advice over claims that Republic of Ireland players were paid 10,000 US dollars each not to tackle Argentina star Lionel Messi during a 2010 friendly. An FAI statement said: “The Football Association of Ireland completely refutes the allegations made about the Republic of Ireland v Argentina friendly match in La Nacion as baseless. “The match in question was organised by Kentaro and announced by press release prior to the World Cup play-offs in 2009. We are consulting our legal advisers in relation to the article, and will be taking further steps.” The report claims the late Julio Grondona, then president of the Argentina Football Association and senior FIFA vice-president, suggested to FIFA counterpart Sepp Blatter that the Argentinian team should head for Dublin. However, it alleges that Messi’s club Barcelona were unhappy with the arrangement and with an insurance quote for the game coming in at five million US dollars, it was decided to adopt the less costly policy of paying the Ireland players to go easy on the visitors’ star man. The game, in which captain Robbie Keane won his 100th senior international cap, ended 1-0 with Angel di Maria scoring the only goal in front of a crowd of 45,200. The FAI found itself thrust into the limelight earlier this month after chief executive John Delaney confirmed it had received a loan, later written off, of five million euros from FIFA in the wake of the Republic’s play-off heartbreak at the Stade de France. Delaney claimed the payment, which was used to offset the cost of redeveloping the old Lansdowne Road stadium, had been made after he and Blatter had entered into a deal under which the Irish governing body would not take legal action over the goal which handed France their ticket to South Africa after referee Martin Hansson and his assistants failed to spot Thierry Henry’s handball in the build-up. The confidentiality agreement between the two parties, which was released by the FAI in a bid to clarify the situation, described the payment as an “inducement” not to enter into litigation. The Football Association of Ireland has described the allegations, made in La Nacion in South America, as “baseless” and have vowed to take the matter further. Argentina travelled to Dublin in August 2010 to play the Republic in a friendly to officially open the new Aviva Stadium – the report suggests in part to help compensate the FAI for the nation’s controversial World Cup play-off exit in France nine months earlier. Full-back Kevin Kilbane, who played in the game, later insisted he did not receive any payment or instruction to stay away from Messi. Kilbane told TV3: “I am totally unaware of it. There was no suggestion around the game that we were to stay clear of Lionel Messi, and of course none of the players received any money as payment regarding this. “It’s total news to me and I’m sure it will be news to a lot of the other lads as well. “It’s quite poor. There have been a lot of allegations over the last month or so aimed at us. Mud sticks, I suppose, and it’s not nice when these sort of allegations are being thrown against the players. “It’s basically questioning us as professionals, it’s questioning us as people as well. But again, none of the players – I certainly didn’t take any money regarding this, and there’s nothing else really that I can add to it.” Indeed, Kilbane admitted the claims had taken some of the gloss off what was a big occasion for Irish football. He added: “To us, it was a big occasion because it was the opening of the Aviva. We lost the game – I think it was Di Maria who scored the goal, as it turned out – and it was a great occasion to be part of, the first ever game at the Aviva. “It was in many respects going back to Lansdowne Road – it’s where we felt as though our football home was – so for these sort of allegations to come out around it, it certainly makes me feel a little bit uneasy. “It does seem to me like someone has come up with a story or a theory. Two and two make 10, I suppose. That’s the only thing I can think of regarding it. “It seems to me they have looked at what’s happened over the last month, they have looked at the allegations that have been made against us and they have come up with a theory. Again, I totally refute it, totally deny it.” last_img read more

Transfer to return to women’s basketball team

first_imgJunior transfer student Avyanna Young has decided to return to the Wisconsin women’s basketball program to after she temporarily left the team.Young announced that she would leave the program on October 22nd for personal reasons, but a change of heart led her back to Madison and is practicing with the team again.“I missed the team and playing basketball,” Young said. “I knew returning was the right decision, to stay here and be with the people who really care about me.”The 6-1 forward played her first two seasons of collegiate ball at UW-Milwaukee, where she averaged 13.3 points per game and over 3o minutes per game last season. The Milwaukee native and Rufus King graduate led the Panthers with 9.9 rebounds per outing.“I think she made a hasty decision and one she didn’t think through fully,” head coach Bobbie Kelsey said in the statement. “We welcomed her back with open arms and love, and we want her to do well.  I think she realized how much she can contribute to our program, not just basketball wise, and what she was giving up.”Young will still have to sit out the 2014-2015 season in accordance with the NCAA’s transfer rules.last_img read more

If you were wondering if Elon Musk actually deleted the game, the answer is a sober No. Musk has a reputation for being a very social media-friendly businessman/engineer which is something that is very seldom seen with people of Musk’s stature. Musk breaks the stereotypes that are usually projected onto the rich and successful and this tweet of his shows exactly that. Fortnite is a pop-cultural phenomenon and enjoys a very loyal fandom.

Millions of players across the world have stared at a Black Hole which has been the only thing they can see for the last nine hours. Fortnite has gone on to maintain the aesthetic throughout their social media accounts as well. The Fortnite avatar is now just a black photo. An earlier accidental leak on the Apple App Store revealed that Fortnite was coming up with a “Chapter Two”. The screenshots which were shared throughout the Internet show a new map and the “Chapter 2” title. This blackout could be a strategy that Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite, are using to generate a buzz around the game, only to reveal the new chapter. Only time will give us answers but till then… we can stare at the black hole. …. Almost a year back, Tesla CEO Elon Musk made a tweet that shared a fake screenshot of a news site.
