NEW BEGINNING: A developer snapped up a 1960s weatherboard home.AN OLD weatherboard home in Brisbane’s east might not have excited potential homeowners, but for one developer it was a vital piece in a puzzle.The three-bedroom home at 7 Gloriana St in Morningside was built back in 1960, and in 2018 it was one of a handful of homes in the street from that era that had not been rebuilt, massively renovated, or demolished for units. 7 Gloriana Street Morningside (in yello) next to the block that is in early stages of construction.Agent for the sale, Karen Chappell from Ray White — Bulimba said that although it went to a developer, she was not sure when she started the campaign if there would be more interest in the home from developers or owner occupiers. “Some just love the proximity to the city and that it is in a nice quiet cul-de-sac, but if we don’t put it out to everybody we don’t know where the buyer is going to come from,” Ms Chappell said.“We thought it was 50/50, sometimes the tradies like to buy these homes to renovate and make it their own.”.center_img 7 Gloriana Street MorningsideSiblings Ken Sharp, Jason Sharp and Karen Cowell all grew up in the house after it was bought by their parents in 1960, and collectively they decided that it was finally time to sell up and move on.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus19 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market19 hours ago“It wasn’t as busy back then,” Mrs Cowell said. “To us it is a real end of an era.”About 15 people, including several curious neighbours watched the slow opening bids of the auction, which then stalled at $560,000.After a vendor bid jumped the price up to $600,000, a phone bidder secured the property for $635,000.last_img read more

This house at 22-24 Ascot Street, Ascot, sold for $4.25m after just two days on the market.Christine Rudolph of Ray White New Farm said she had noticed an increase in buyers prepared to pay $4 million or more for a home.“We’ve definitely noticed a lot of these professional buyers would rather pay a premium for a finished product because they’re time poor and they really don’t want to go through project managing a renovation,” Ms Rudolph said.“That mid 30s to early 40s demographic is the prime demographic driving that $4 million price point at the moment, and they’re looking more at a long-term investment — somewhere they will settle for the next 20 years with their family.”Ms Rudolph recently sold a five-bedroom house on 685 sqm in Clayfield to a Sydney buyer who paid $2.145 million for it under the hammer — the highest price ever paid for a block of that size in the suburb.“That sale is proof that discerning buyers will continue to pay a premium for a quality product,” she said.“We’re continuing to see a strong trend in Brisbane with interstate migration and we’ve noticed an increase in both CEOs and CFOs with larger companies relocating to Brisbane. “One of the big benefits for them is that they can continue to operate on a global spehere out of Brisbane, but their preference is to move their families to Brisbane where the lifestyle is easy, schools are less expensive and they like to have that flexibility to be able to commute.” Inside the extravagant mansion at 36 Dickson Tce, Hamilton.Another high-profile figure was involved in the sale of the Fig Tree Pocket home of the founder of the collapsed Linc Energy, Peter Bond, earlier this year.Former federal politician and billionaire businessman Clive Palmer paid $7.5 million for the property at 36 Needham Street in one of the biggest sales of the year in Brisbane.

  • Inside Conditions…2nd time around

    first_imgAubrey BruceI have grown weary as I am sure many NFL fans have of picking up the daily paper or reading the latest blog profiling another athlete being accused or convicted of using performance enhancing drugs.The latest culprits accused of violating the league’s illegal drug use policies are former Steelers and current Indy Colts tight end Weslye Saunders and free agent receiver Bert Reed. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell could eliminate Illegal drug usage immediately. He could say listen if anyone is caught using performance enhancing or any other illegal drugs then they will have to abide by the “two strikes and you’re out” policy. Strike one, warn the player without a suspension or fine. Strike two, expel the player permanently, no exceptions. No more third chances.Blogger Baudilio6 had this to say about the current situation. “Steelers 100 percent & always…but did it bother anyone else that the great ’70s run may have been steroid fuel’d. Different era, much less a news item back then, but the Steelers did seem to pioneer the crazy-strong offensive linemen [familiar] with the power lifting culture. Kolb, Webster, Courson.”Greatness may sometimes be tainted but in these days the more chances and appeals that a player is given the more chances that athlete they have to evade detection. If a player is not good enough to compete honestly then I humbly suggest that they get on with their life’s work. All of the geniuses that cover the NFL promoted Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders after the man who sat in the first chair for Pittsburgh bailed to the sunny shores of the Miami Dolphins. Duh, of course when you are the third man on the totem pole and the first chair “gets ghost” then the second fiddle becomes the first banana and so on.Although he has some big shoes to fill, Sanders seems to be up for the task. “They’re expecting 70 catches for 1,000 yards, and that’s the same thing that I expect for myself.” We shall see won’t we? when you become one of the featured guys often times your vibe as well as the vibe of the opposing defenders changes. No longer are you a decoy because the target on your back becomes humongous. Two things caught the New England Patriots as well as the rest of the professional football world by surprise. the first being big, strong New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowsi seems less like to get stoned in a Chinese Bistro and more prone to be more like a fragile China doll. The All-Pro tight end first broke his left forearm last November, and broke it again in the first quarter of the playoff game against Houston in January. He underwent a third operation in February when an infection developed. That surgery was necessary to change the metal plate which had been inserted in Gronkowski’s arm.last_img read more

  • Yes Uber Costa Rica is still illegal says transport ministry

    first_imgRelated posts:Uber starts accepting drivers in Costa Rica but government threatens fines Costa Rican police leadership denies targeting Uber drivers  Uber rival Cabify coming to Costa Rica Taxis protest as lawmakers present bill that could legalize Uber A legal review by the Public Transportation Council has decided that the ride-hailing service Uber Costa Rica is illegal. The decision came just days after Costa Rica General Manager Humberto Pacheco met with Public Works and Transport Ministry officials to discussUber’s standing here. Uber Costa Rica service went live here on Aug. 21.“The transportation service that Uber offers through a mobile app is an illegal transportation service due to the fact that it does not have the corresponding authorizations,” said Public Transportation Council (CTP) director Mario Zárate in a statement. As long as Uber does not have permission from CTP, the review said, it is operating illegally in Costa Rica.The CTP report brushed aside the possibility of Uber Costa Rica appealing the council’s decision on grounds of the Central American Free Trade Agreement, to which Costa Rica and the United States are signatories, saying that Costa Rica reserved the right to regulate transportation in all its forms.Uber Costa Rica continues to dispute the government’s characterization of its services.“Uber is not a transportation company and the service that its partners offer to members is not a taxi service,” Uber spokeswoman Rocío Paniagua said in a statement emailed to The Tico Times.The statement characterizes Uber as a technology platform that connects community members to fulfill their mobility needs. “The service that Uber partners offer is clearly distinguishable from any other transportation service, including taxis,” Paniagua said.Despite the government’s opposition to the ride-hailing service, it has yet to decide on an enforcement strategy that would keep Uber vehicles off the road here. President Luis Guillermo Solís’ administration previously said that it has no plans to block Uber. The company, meanwhile, continues to sign up new users. Paniagua said that 30,000 people in Costa Rica have registered with the company since it began operations. Facebook Commentslast_img read more
