First home buyers can pay a fifth for an apartment in Brisbane compared to Sydney buyers

First home buyers can pay a fifth for an apartment in Brisbane compared to Sydney buyers

first_imgA one-bedder in inner city Petrie Terrace is seeking offers of more than $199,000 — a lot cheaper than a similar property would set you back in Sydney. Picture: realestate.com.auI had dinner with an agent this week — a young woman in her twenties selling units in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney.We were discussing the cost of one-bedrooms apartment which she had recently sold or was currently negotiating.The prices of these ranged from $1 million to $1.7 million!When I asked her what was the main demographic of buyers, she said it was singles or young couples her age — say what?!Oh and for the record, these units were roughly all less than 50sq m, without harbour or city views and some without car parking spaces.In a week when the budget announced measures to help first home buyers enter the market, I genuinely hope they’re not trying to push them into these areas.Most of the country is offering great value, but these inner city markets of Sydney and Melbourne are not the place for a first homebuyer to be dipping their toes.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home5 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor5 hours agoTo give you some comparison you could do a search of properties listed in Brisbane’s CBD and find one-bedroom units for less than $200,000 or even in New Farm in the $200,000s.I completely understand the population benefits of Sydney, but is Brisbane really only 20 per cent (or less) of their price?Fortunately, the budget does seems to have a plan to steer these first home buyers into the markets that are not overstimulated.There is a provision in the budget that extends the powers of APRA, which can dictate to the banks on some of the lending criteria for certain suburbs.This could likely mean the banks will be restricted on the amount of money they can lend in these bull markets.I believe this and the levies applied to foreign investors, if used in the spirit of the budget, could slow these super fast markets.last_img read more

EPL restart suffers setback as Brighton confirm third COVID-19 case

EPL restart suffers setback as Brighton confirm third COVID-19 case

first_imgThe Premier League’s Project Restart has suffered a huge blow as Brighton have confirmed that a third player has tested positive for coronavirus. Brighton chief executive Paul Barber told Sky Sports News: “It is a concern. “Unfortunately we’ve had a third player test positive yesterday (Saturday, May 9), so despite all of the measures that we’ve been taking over the past few weeks, where the players haven’t been involved in any significant training at all, we’ve still suffered another player testing positive for the virus. “So there are concerns and I think it’s normal for all clubs to have those concerns. “We want to make sure we do everything that we can to ensure those protocols are in place and are safe and secure and mitigate the risk as far as we can.” Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to relax the UK’s coronavirus lockdown regulations during tonight’s address to the nation. His words are expected to trigger phase one of the Premier League’s Project Restart – the name of the plan to get top division football back underway. A video call is scheduled to take place today between league chiefs and the clubs to discuss how players can return to training later this month with a view to matches resuming in June. But Brighton’s latest positive COVID-19 test will only intensify the doubts which are increasing amongst players and staff. Several Premier League clubs are against the idea of having to resume the season in the midst of a global pandemic.

Loading… They want the campaign ended prematurely like has happened in France, Belgium and Holland. There is a huge sticky point in talks between clubs as the Premier League wants the season to resume in neural stadia. But Watford chairman Scott Duxbury is completely against that idea. He said: “When at least six clubs — and I suspect more — are concerned about the clear downside and the devastating effects of playing in this kind of distorted nine-game mini-league, then I believe the Premier League has a duty of care to address those concerns. “If we start and finish a whole season under these conditions and at neutral venues when everybody knows the rules when we start, not created in a time of crisis, then that is clearly fair. Brighton chief Paul Barber confirmed the third positive test was undertaken yesterday Read Also: Blow for Man Utd as Shanghai want Ighalo back by July “To be asked to finish a quarter of the season under new rules and conditions is an entirely different proposition. “How can the long-term future of clubs be determined under these fundamentally changed conditions? How is there any semblance of fairness? To wave aside all the fears and concerns is too simplistic. “Surely all 20 clubs must agree the fairest way forward to complete the season?” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more
