first_imgNew South Wales and Victoria have emerged as the front runners for investors looking to get into the property market, with a surge in interest across the two states in first quarter of the year.Parramatta, in Sydney’s west claimed top spot in realestate.com.au’s Investor Hotspots list. The top ten was dominated by suburbs in Sydney’s west and a mix of inner-city and suburban areas of Melbourne.The trend for inner-city and suburban areas was replicated across most states. In Queensland, investors are searching in inner-city areas in south Brisbane and West End, where multiple new apartment developments are being built.In South Australia, investors are looking to the inner north and coastal areas, while WA investors were keen on areas to the north and south of Perth.Realestate.com.au ranks each hotspot by taking the number of searches a suburb receives on realestate.com.au’s Invest site through the search tool and map function.Top Ten Investor HotspotsParramatta (NSW)Point Cook (VIC)Carlton (VIC)Blacktown (NSW)Glen Waverley (VIC)Penrith (NSW)Frankston (VIC)Auburn (NSW)Brunswick (VIC)Liverpool (NSW)Nathan Sahyoun, Principal from LJ Hooker Parramatta says investors are looking towards New South Wales and Victoria on a national scale as these areas are the most developed and offer financially secure investment.Sahyoun adds that from a national perspective, New South Wales is leading the charge in the economy, education and employment sectors of Australia.“With the New South Wales Government investing in Sydney’s west, it’s no surprise investors are interested in these areas. The increasing living opportunities as well as a growing arts and culture hub is truly cementing long-term capital growth in the area. With a second airport planned for Sydney’s west, I suspect investors will continue to flock to Parramatta for many years,” Sahyoun says.Paul Wolff, Director from Porter Davis Melbourne explains that location is the big draw card attracting investors to areas in Victoria.“Driving from Point Cook to Melbourne CBD only takes about half an hour which is really short compared to other investment areas including Werribee and Hoppers Crossing. The proximity to the city is not only attracting investors, but also foreign and second and third home buyers,” Wolff says.Find out the results from your state:NSWQLDNTWASAVICACTTASNew South WalesParramatta is the shining star of the west, attracting the most interest from investors in New South Wales and also across the country.

This established area attracts both tenant and purchaser inquiry giving confidence to investors looking for a great return on their investment. The future is bright for investors as the tenant demand is high with new homes also being developed,” he says.Oliver says Stuart Park has a diverse mix of property including properties from both old and new Darwin.“There are businesses, medical amenities, gyms, schools and parklands. It’s no surprise this area is tightly held. Investors have realised that buyers are not moving out of this area which is great news for them.“Darwin is a hub for future business with quite a high number of interstate investors interested in this area. Our rental market has performed so strongly, especially Stuart Park that I expect a 5.5% net rental return for the location.”West AustraliaPotential investors are jumping online for properties in Victoria Park when looking out west.

He describes it as their own piece of investment property.“Victoria Park offers two main benefits; diversity of housing stock and affordability. Both keep increasing in demand. The proximity to the CBD and popular café strip that has sprung up over the past five years also makes this area a hotspot for locals and overseas investors,” he says.Vasile says Victoria Park has a large education quarter attracting a high number of renters and students to the area.“Curtain University and the Technology Park which is the digital hub in West Australia are within close proximity to Victoria Park. Overseas investors are buying these properties for their families who are studying in the area. The proliferation of low-cost restaurants is also attracting the student market. This influx of students is certainly positive from an investor’s point of view.”As one of the first test suburbs for the National Broadband Network, Victoria Park is certainly an investor’s delight, offering plenty of value.South AustraliaNorth Adelaide has come out on top as the most searched suburb in South Australia.These are the ten most searched for South Australian suburbs on realestate.com.au/invest:North AdelaideProspectNorwoodMawson LakesMile EndKlemzigGlenelgBromptonHenley BeachParksideFrom January to March this year areas around the inner north and the coast were the pick for investors.Being privy to the property market for the past 28 years, Catherine Crease from Ouwens Casserly Real Estate says North Adelaide has always been highly sought after and thrives because of its character.“North Adelaide is close to the city and fits within that cosmopolitan lifestyle. People want to live in this area as it also boasts proximity to the parklands, restaurants, cafes, the new Adelaide Oval, beautiful cathedrals and plenty of art and cultural attractions. Everything you want is here,” Crease says.“There are cute cottages, grand mansions, multi-storey apartments, townhouses and beautiful heritage buildings – everything is within easy walking distance. Investors see North Adelaide as a great investment because they know in the next five to ten years, the popularity in this suburb will continue to grow.”Crease explains that there is a high number of people looking to move into this area including downsizers and retirees, giving confidence to investors about their potential return on investment.“People are attracted to the low maintenance lifestyle and want to live here.

Being located on the southern shore of Lake Burley Griffin, there is access to swimming and rowing facilities as well as parklands making it a desirable place to live.”Selleck says redevelopment of properties has been ongoing creating new investment opportunities. She also highlights that the ACT Government plans to create medium and high density unit blocks resulting in around 1,600 new dwellings and transforming the area into an urban renewal project over the next decade.“Yarralumla appeals to families because of the schooling facilities as well as young couples and downsizers.

We pride ourselves in offering fantastic education opportunities in this area along with the lifestyle benefits and local attractions,” he says.Sahyoun says planned infrastructure including a new light rail and multi-storey high school will be developed in the next five years.“This will be Sydney’s second light rail and we are excited that it will be running through Parramatta. Locals are also really looking forward to seeing the brand new high-rise school being built here.

The demand for property in this area is also driven by the many lifestyle amenities on offer and significant infrastructure. There are flexible public transport options including easy access to the trains, buses and ferries,” Bulloch says.He says South Brisbane’s population is forecast to grow, showing a lot of promise for investors in the next 20 years. He says this growth is likely to drive the strong demand for properties in South Brisbane.“Strong demand means strong capital growth and that’s what investors want to see. The location of South Brisbane attracts a high number of renters that want close proximity to the city which makes investors confident that properties here will generate a strong return on investment.”Northern TerritoryIn the Territory, Stuart Park is heating up, attracting the most attention online from potential investors.

They look for two things when choosing an investment property; the income generated from rent and capital growth. There are plenty of investors looking in Sandy Bay as they are hoping to come across units or properties with multiple incomes. These properties usually provide the greatest return on investment.”Speakman says investors will not rush into a decision but are often facing fierce competition from first-home and overseas buyers who want a piece of the action.“Investors are up against first-home buyers in Sandy Bay as these types of buyers can only afford the units that investors are keen to buy. The value of property in Sandy Bay is only going up and overseas investors know this. I recently sold a few Sandy Bay properties to foreign buyers that wanted to buy a place for their children who have moved to Tassie for study. Residents then tend to stay in the area seeking local employment opportunities,” he says.last_img read more

first_imgBatesville, IN—St. Louis School had dedicated the 2019-2020 school year to honoring our Blessed Mother, and to coincide with the year of Our Lady in the St. Louis Parish. The children started off the beginning of the year by adding pieces to a mosaic of the Miraculous Medal. Each time a student did an act of kindness, said a prayer, or forgave someone, they would add a piece to the mosaic.The students were almost finished with the mosaic when the school year ended abruptly due to COVID-19. The faculty asked students to say family rosaries in order to finish adding the letters around Mary, and with all of the students’ help, the Mary mosaic is now complete. The mosaic was located outside of the principal’s office and students all year long have added their pieces to the mosaic. Mr. Moller said how much he enjoyed chatting with the kids as they would tell him what kind deed they performed to be able to add a mosaic piece.last_img read more

The five-year-old was last seen falling in a race won by Annie Power at Doncaster. Last year’s runner-up Sirene D’Ainay could make the trip from France again, while other contenders include Fergal O’Brien’s Down Ace and the Henry Daly-trained Mickie. Mullins predictably dominates the ante-post betting for the Weatherbys Champion Bumper and is responsible for five of the initial 41 entries. The Graham and Andrea Wylie-owned of duo Black Hercules and Shaneshill have both looked the part since joining Ireland’s champion trainer and dispute favouritism, with stablemates Killultagh Vic, Westhorpe and Aminabad also in the mix. Modus is a major contender for fledgling trainer Robert Stephens while Vigil and Silver Concorde could travel from Ireland for Dermot Weld. Last year’s third Golantilla could return for Tony Martin, with Philip Fenton’s Value At Risk another hope for the Irish. A total of 34 horses are in the mix for the CGA Foxhunter Chase, with Enda Bolger responsible for two of the main hopes in Mossey Joe and On The Fringe.

first_img FOLLOW US Associated Press Television News The Philadelphia Eagles’ new-look offensive line needs to be reshuffled.Left tackle Andre Dillard sustained a biceps injury this week that will end his season. The second-year pro was a first-round pick in 2019. The Eagles moved nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters to right guard to accommodate Dillard.Peters remained at right guard for Saturday’s indoor practice. Matt Pryor was at left tackle. Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Pryor, Jordan Mailata and rookie Jack Driscoll would get looks at left tackle because the team knows Peters could move back.“Jason Peters has played left tackle his whole career and he’s done an outstanding job,” Pederson said. “He’ll obviously go down as one of the top left tackles in this game. So it does give us a little bit of flexibility, a little bit of time to look at these young players. I’m encouraged by that. It’ll be great to go up against our starters on defense, in practice this week, and continue to evaluate.”The Eagles already lost three-time Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks after he tore his left Achilles tendon in June. Pryor is the only Eagles backup who has started a game in the NFL. He filled in at right guard in the NFC wild-card game last January.“I didn’t have a whole lot of experience, either, becoming a head coach for the first time,” said Pederson, who led the Eagles to the franchise’s first Super Bowl victory in his second season three years ago. “You get it by doing it.”Philadelphia could look to add another veteran lineman, though starters aren’t often available weeks before the season.“At some point we’ve got to trust our players, right, and as coaches we trust our guys,” Pederson said. “It’s our job to coach them up and get them prepared, to help them, not only in practice but in game situations, and that’s what we’re going to do.”Image credits: AP SUBSCRIBE TO US First Published: 30th August, 2020 08:36 IST WATCH US LIVEcenter_img Last Updated: 30th August, 2020 08:36 IST Dillard’s Injury Forces Eagles To Reshuffle Offensive Line Left tackle Andre Dillard sustained a biceps injury this week that will end his season.
