Gold Coast homeowners make more than $500 million

first_imgREIQ Gold Coast zone chairman John Newlands said the Coast was seeing the flow-on effect from the investors coming from interstate and locally.Mr Newlands said the Coast’s new infrastructure, construction and tourism industries, and impending 2018 Commonwealth Games were giving buyers a renewed confidence in the city.“We are now getting some traction in the market place and seeing the flow-on effect from the investors coming from interstate and locally,” he said.“With the low-interest rates buyers are opening their wallets with confidence to buy.” The CoreLogic Pain and Gain report revealed 84 per cent of Gold Coasters made money — with the median profit at $110,000. GOLD Coast homeowners made more than $500 million in one quarter alone last year as the level of sales reached six year highs.Figures released today show eight out of 10 homeowners made a profit on sales in the three months to September 2016, pocketing almost $525 million.The CoreLogic Pain and Gain report reveals the median profit was $110,000.It was the best result for houses on the Coast since 2010.CoreLogic research analyst Cameron Kusher said strength was returning to the coastal markets.“You also see in Queensland interstate migration is picking up a little bit, particularly in the southeast corner.“Obviously people in Sydney and Melbourne possibly starting to think about their retirement they have seen significant growth in the value of their homes over the last few year, lots of equity.“The Gold Coast is one of the places they like to look at, so that could all be contributing to the improvement…”More from news02:37Purchasers snap up every residence in the $40 million Siarn Palm Beach North12 hours ago02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa1 day agoCoreLogic research analyst Cameron Kusher said strength was returning to the coastal marketsREIQ Gold Coast zone chairman John Newlands said there were “pockets” of housing around the Coast — including Burleigh Heads and Southport — that had experienced phenomenal growth in the past 10 to 15 years. “The people who have benefited from selling are those who took up good opportunities through the global financial crisis period, or people who have been holding on to their properties for 10 to 15 years in a suburb which has become quite popular,” Mr Newlands said.“Some suburbs have completely transformed. Like Burleigh Heads, it’s just one of several Gold Coast suburbs that come along immensely with new restaurants and lifestyle factors impacting it.“There are little pockets around the Coast that have completely transformed.”last_img read more

Julian Buescher fronts Syracuse’s offense again in 3-0 win over Bowling Green

Julian Buescher fronts Syracuse’s offense again in 3-0 win over Bowling Green

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ The glossy yellow cleats pounded into the ground in the corner, near the sideline. Julian Buescher couldn’t seem to get the shoe to fit quite comfortably. They were an old pair, but ones Buescher was wearing during a game for the first time.Despite a tired performance saved by a game-winning assist on Oct. 6 and a game that snapped his point streak Saturday, Buescher broke out his old tricks, assisting a goal and scoring another.“They are not broken in yet, so it takes a little bit,” Buescher said of the cleats, “but it looked like it worked out today. If they don’t break in, it’s fine if it goes like that.”The midfielder assisted on SU’s first goal, scored the second and his shot spurred the last. No. 16 Syracuse (9-3-1, 2-2-1 Atlantic Coast) rode Buescher while rolling Bowling Green (6-6-1, 0-1 Mid-American), 3-0 on Tuesday night at SU Soccer Stadium.The three-goal advantage gave SU head coach Ian McIntyre enough leeway to pull a few starters from the game while securing a win in SU’s second-to-last nonconference game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“He’s an important part of what we’re doing,” McIntyre said. “We’ve challenged him this year to provide us goals and assists, and he’s done that.”Just five minutes after Buescher hammered his shoe into the grass, he exchanged four passes with midfielder Oyvind Alseth down the left sideline. Forward Ben Polk was sitting a few yards away from the 6-yard box unmarked.Buescher tamed the last pass from Alseth and whizzed a cross to Polk. The forward lifted his right leg, slapping the ball out of the air and into the back of the net to give SU a 1-0 lead just 15 minutes into the game.“He was wide open, so if I didn’t pass it he probably would’ve been pissed at me,” Buescher said. “So I’m glad I found him.”With the Orange leading by one, Andreas Jenssen corralled a pass, fled down the right sideline and crossed the ball into Buescher. The midfielder slowed a bit as his defender kept charging toward the net, creating just enough separation.Bowling Green goalie Nick Landsberger burst out as the ball flew in, but Jenssen placed the ball perfectly in front of Buescher. Already with an assist, Buescher headed the ball into the net less than two minutes into the second half.Finally, Buescher tapped the ball around one defender in the 18-yard box and boomed a shot toward the net. The ball ricocheted off two defenders near the goal line, but the ball caromed to Louis Cross, who finished the rebound.“I just wanted to get in the 6-yard box. Miles (Robinson) was a bit unlucky for not scoring, but I was just there,” Cross said.After the last goal, McIntyre dotted his bench with starters like Liam Callahan, Chris Nanco and Buescher. Polk had already been pulled before the third goal.Buescher came off clapping with 11 minutes left in the second half and Jonathan Hagman ran in. As the midfielder came off, a few fans reciprocated Buescher’s clapping.Three of SU’s last four games are against ranked opponents, including No. 4 Clemson, No. 23 North Carolina State and No. 25 Boston College. While Tuesday may not be a signature win that defines a season, it’s one that can help SU’s NCAA tournament hopes.At the forefront of SU’s attack was Buescher — where he’s been nearly all season.“Fighting, scrapping and being a dirty guy on the field,” Buescher joked of his role on the team. “No, chipping in some goals, some assists.”Coming off a game without either, on Tuesday that shoe fit for Buescher.

Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger ready to put 2018’s platoon days behind him

Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger ready to put 2018’s platoon days behind him

first_img“Had we had a meaningful lead in our division, we probably would have just let him play it out. The fact that it was so tight we felt that was the best thing to do to help us win our division.”Bellinger was “really good” against lefties in 2017 indeed. During that National League Rookie of the Year season, only three left-handed hitters had a higher OPS against left-handed pitching than Bellinger’s (.903) – Cincinnati’s Joey Votto, Colorado’s Charlie Blackmon (who won the NL batting title that year) and Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager. No lefty hit more home runs off lefties (12) than Bellinger.Things changed in his second season, however. Bellinger’s overall production dropped in large part because of his struggles against left-handed pitching – he batted just .226 with a .681 OPS and half as many home runs against lefties.“To follow up a Rookie of the Year campaign with the season he did is tough,” Roberts said. “There’s a lot of expectations put on a player. I think mechanically he was never in sync. Then you start looking at the scoreboard and you see your average and you start pressing a little bit and the game speeds up.“It’s just one of those things where he got into a funk mechanically and the results weren’t there. The quality of at-bat, for me with what I saw, wasn’t what I saw in ’17. … There’s a quality, results notwithstanding, that just wasn’t there.”It actually seemed to start during the postseason – the World Series, in particular – in 2017. Bellinger was 4 for 28 with 17 strikeouts in the Series and the Astros’ gameplan against him was copied by everyone in 2018.“Last year it started with the league making an adjustment on him,” Roberts said. “They were throwing him balls above the belt and they were tying him up. Then when you get into May and you start looking at your average, there’s some anxiety that sort of sets in on a young player. Then you start trying to make some mechanical changes and the lefties were beating him away, spinning him. Balls that he was taking (in 2017), he was swinging at. Then it gets into the mechanical piece.”Bellinger put a good deal of work in this offseason trying to “clean things up mechanically.” The result is a swing that is not much different from his rookie year. But he understands a lot more about how and why it works.“I would say the swing itself is the same. But the way I’m going about my swing isn’t the same,” he said. “I have more understanding of how to go about it – rather than just going up there and hacking.“Beginning of this offseason, Rob (new hitting coach Robert Van Scoyoc) took me and we just watched a whole bunch of video from 2017 and what I did well and then what I didn’t do well because I went through some slumps. And when I was going through those slumps in ’17 I had no idea why I was really going through those slumps.”Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire “That was hilarious,” Cody Bellinger said, giving the barb two thumbs up. “I made it – that’s what they said.”Bellinger could laugh about his status as a made man because he has emerged from the dark side of platooning, assured of his full-time status by early-spring conversations with Dodgers manager Dave Roberts and president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman. They assured the 23-year-old Bellinger they see him as he sees himself – as an every-day player.“He led us in plate appearances last year,” Roberts said. “I expect that again this year.”Bellinger did make a team-high 632 plate appearances last season. But he was one of only two players to top 520 (Chris Taylor was the other). No team in the National League had fewer and Bellinger’s tapered off in August and September – and in the playoffs – when the Dodgers went all in on platooning to try and solve their offensive imbalance against left-handed pitching.“I think he handled it pretty well. I mean, it’s hard for a young player,” Friedman said of Bellinger. “We waited until the end of August. He obviously had a really good year against lefties in 2017 and was struggling more in 2018. It was one of those things where we could have crossed our fingers and hoped he improved or been a little more proactive just to finish the 2018 season and work on it in the offseason. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Midway through spring training, Ross Stripling and Brock Stewart donned hair-band wigs, added David Freese and A.J. Pollock on guitar and minor-league pitcher Mark Washington on improvised drums (an overturned bucket) and livened up the drudgery of a morning team meeting with a rendition of “Kryptonite” by 3 Doors Down.Stripling modified the lyrics to suit the audience, opening with this stanza.“I watched the world float to the dark side of the moon,” he crooned. “I can’t wait to watch Bellinger get platooned.”The line landed with his teammates, everyone in the room aware of how the second-year player had chafed at being benched against left-handed pitching over the final weeks of last season (and during the postseason).center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season A big emphasis from Van Scoyoc, Bellinger said, has been on keeping his swing path in the hitting zone longer, creating more margin for error.“I would say I did it (in 2017) – but that was because I was just doing it, not really knowing why I was doing it,” Bellinger said. “Now there’s drills to help you stay there and when you are feeling off … you’re going to understand why you’re off.“That’s why the really good players really understand their swing and get out of those funks sooner.”Belllinger has emerged, Friedman said, with a better “mindset, approach, thinking about right-handed pitchers and left-handed pitchers differently” – things that have put Bellinger “in a really good mental space” and make the Dodgers confident a return to platooning won’t be necessary.“I would say it was a learning year, for sure,” Bellinger said of his sophomore season. “I wouldn’t say it was a bad year. A learning year, for sure.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco last_img read more
