Landbankers set to make millions as supply tightens across SEQ

first_img Land supply status across SEQ: Revealed: Stunning next phase for Darius and Kayla Property industry analyst Michael Matusik said new land supply was very tight across South East Queensland.“There is under two years of actual potential new land supply across SEQ and the supply is tightest on the Gold Coast, Brisbane and in Redland. This supply is way too short.”His analysis of uncertified lots with operational works approval in major SEQ municipalities found just 1.8 years of supply across the south east, a factor that could trigger big dollars for families with large tracts of land in tight council zones.Of the council areas, the Gold Coast had the tightest supply at just half a year’s worth, followed by Brisbane (0.7 years), Redland (0.9 years), Moreton Bay 1.5 years), Sunshine Coast (2.2 years), Ipswich (3.1 years) and Logan (3.5 years).

It’s seeing Queenslanders make millions off land tracts banked by families for generations across South East Queensland, with developers converging on properties to insure against dwindling land supply for new estates. Depending on location, properties could fetch as much as $18.15m for 3.36ha of land, as 315 Gardner Road, Rochedale, did in a multi-sale. MORE: Anna Spiro sells her island homecenter_img New land development approvals have fallen substantially across SEQ over the last five years,” Mr Matusik said. “The fall in new future land supply is most marked in several municipalities including the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay and Ipswich. There has been a fall in the number of new approved projects in Logan.”One of the country’s largest residential developers, Stockland – which currently has eight new residential estates on the outskirts of Brisbane through to the Gold Coast – looks for land that would allow future residents to have “ready access” to jobs, recreation, public transport, schools and amenities.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus8 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market8 hours agoStockland general manager, David Laner, said there were many considerations that came into the decision to create a new community including “location, scale, planning and infrastructure, aspect and orientation, topography, the list goes on”.But, he said, “in addition to these more technical considerations, it is critical to evaluate local amenity, demographics, housing supply and demand.”“This means reviewing the lifestyle attributes, existing and future housing choice, customer preferences, and projected population growth.”Among two of the newer Stockland estates are Newport and Promenade Rothwell, both located close to Redcliffe, in greater Brisbane’s northern edges where a new train line was opened four years ago.“We understand that purchasing a home is a big commitment and that the location of the property must suit our customers’ long-term needs, so we encourage all potential buyers to remember that they’re not just making a purchasing decision for themselves now, but for their future selves as well,” Mr Laner said.

That market share ranges from 43 per cent in Brisbane to 83 per cent in Ipswich. New land subdivision activity across SEQ is now limited to a few development corridors.”The fall in supply coupled with boosts for home builders was expected to put greater pressure on prices, with Dr Diaswati Mardiasmo, chief economist of PRD Nationwide, finding that Greater Brisbane was already inching towards higher prices, despite COVID-19 – with the biggest dollars going to properties with large land holdings.“There is a possibility of southern investors in the market, however the local Greater Brisbane market is stimulated as well with many choosing to build or entering estates in higher priced suburbs that are well served by shops, infrastructure, great schools.” FOLLOW COURIER MAIL REAL ESTATE ON FACEBOOKlast_img read more

3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 71-57 win against Niagara

first_img Published on December 28, 2019 at 9:15 pm Contact Andrew: [email protected] | @CraneAndrew Greg Paulus lunged back and forth over the sideline, urging his man-to-man defense to trace its Syracuse assignment. The second half neared its midway point, and Brycen Goodine circled through the paint toward the left wing.“Stay with him, Justin,” Paulus yelled to Justin Roberts, his point guard. Bourama Sidibe cut up to the elbow, and Paulus crouched. Goodine had pulled away from Roberts and had an open look.It rimmed out, and Paulus rose in anticipation as the Purple Eagles raced in transition, another chance to cut into an SU lead that inched closer and closer to a blowout. But Elijah Hughes blocked the ensuing shot, settling the SU defense.For most of Saturday night’s game, that was the flow: Whenever it seemed Niagara had a chance, SU found a way to suffocate the opportunity. Sixteen SU turnovers were negated by a low Purple Eagle shooting percentage, allowing Syracuse to stave off a second-half comeback en route to a 71-57 victory against Niagara to close nonconference play on a three-game winning streak. Saturday’s win marked another lower-tier opponent the Orange struggled to put away and even blowout.Here are three takeaways from the Orange’s win.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textExploitable interior weaknessNick MacDonald corralled the ball in front of the Syracuse bench and eyed up a 3-pointer. To that point in the first half, the Purple Eagles hadn’t hit a long ball. They found success inside the Orange’s 2-3 zone — specifically on Marek Dolezaj and Sidibe’s side — but continued to search for a rhythm outside the arc.MacDonald’s shot bounced out and he shook his head down the court. Possessions later, he perched on the wing again and shot two more. Both missed. The first half ended in a 2-for-12 shooting percentage from behind the arc for Niagara, and an 11-for-20 clip from inside.The Purple Eagles didn’t have a size advantage — their tallest starter was 6-foot-9 and included four players under 6-foot-3, but drives to the block often ended in made layups. Twenty-two points in the paint during the first allowed Niagara to stay within striking distance of the Orange.But that wasn’t the offensive route the Purple Eagles wanted, until the second half. With under eight minutes remaining, MacDonald stopped in the left corner and drained a 3. Minutes later, Roberts hit a 3 from the wing to pull the Purple Eagles within 11, and clapped his hands. But five straight-points from Joe Girard III extinguished the newfound success from behind the arc.A balance that works?As the Purple Eagles continued to launch shots from beyond the arc in search of an offensive spark, Syracuse settled into a balance that worked for the third-straight game. Buddy Boeheim opened and closed a 10-0 SU run to start the game with 3-pointers that sandwiched two interior buckets for the Orange, including a Dolezaj offensive rebound and put-back.Hughes finished the first half with seven assists and the game with nine, even getting slim minutes as the point guard. He flipped a no-look pass to Buddy on the game’s first possession and followed that up with a thread to Sidibe down low from outside the arc — which resulted in a slam dunk.It marked a continuation of the Orange game flow that didn’t revolve around the 3 ball. Against North Florida, it was Dolezaj that became the Orange’s interior facilitator, finding openings for outside looks from his spot at the elbow. But against Niagara’s man defense, the role went to Hughes and allowed him to near a triple-double. He finished the night with 19 points, nine rebounds and nine assists.Using their sizeEven though the Purple Eagles found success when the ball got to the blocks, it was the entrance pass the SU zone contained. Greg Kuakumensah patrolled the elbows, popping his hands out and waiting for a pass from point guards Justin Roberts and James Towns. But most times, those passes never arrived because of SU deflections and — in six cases — steals.Dolezaj and Girard pushed up top on the left side, forcing time off the shot clock and not allowing the Purple Eagles to set up an offensive rotation. That, in turn, forced the Purple Eagles to rely on 3-pointers when lanes inside the paint closed. The other half of the Orange’s defensive prowess was defined by three first half blocks by Sidibe.With a distinct size advantage, SU found ways to snag rebounds without firm box-outs and earn blocks despite late closeouts. The Orange finished with 11 blocks on the night and a 46-33 rebounding advantage. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
