Image: AAP/Darren England.In the best case scenario for Brisbane, prices are forecast to rise between four and seven per cent if interest rates are cut to 0.5 per cent by April 2020.And the worst case would be if interest rates are cut to zero, which SQM predicts would trigger price falls.SQM Research managing director Louis Christopher said Brisbane’s improving economic outlook and recovery in mining investment was set to benefit the housing market.“An increase in mining investment is coming through as we speak and that’s going to be a nice job creator for the city,” Mr Christopher said.The forecast is for Sydney home prices to rise between 10 per cent and 14 per cent and Melbourne prices to jump by 11 per cent to 15 per cent. SQM Research managing director Louis Christopher.But while Sydney and Melbourne home values are set for a sharp rebound, Mr Christopher said he had doubts about the sustainability of the recovery in those “overvalued” markets.“Long term, our two largest housing markets look vulnerable and forever reliant on cheap credit,” he said. “Brisbane is definitely offering better value for money for those who decide to move from Sydney to Melbourne.“The problem in the past has been people will come from the south but struggle to get jobs, but the economy’s picking up and I think there will be more white collar jobs on offer in Brisbane over 2020 and 2021, which may well encourage more buyers from down south.”Mr Christopher said he also anticipated a recovery in Brisbane’s rental market in 2020, with rents forecast to increase between three and five per cent.“Brisbane is increasingly facing a shortage of rental accommodation after years of being in surplus,” he said.“Vacancy rates are consistently falling and it has turned into a landlord’s market.”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus10 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market10 hours ago Brisbane’s vacancy rates are increasingly becoming tighter. Picture: Stewart Mclean.From an investment perspective, Mr Christopher said Brisbane’s eastern suburbs were most likely to outperform.“When I look at rental vacancy rates, they tend to be tighter in Brisbane’s east than other regions,” he said.“I think it’s a matter of lifestyle. The bulk of residents, if they were going to pick a region in which to live, would probably pick Brisbane’s east.” It comes as the NAB changes its expected timing for the next interest rate cut.The bank now expects the Reserve Bank of Australia to slash the official cash rate to 0.5 per cent in February 2020 — and potentially announce a package of unconventional policy should there be a need to provide further stimulus to the economy going forward.

Image: AAP/Dan Himbrechts.“To be clear, we think that the RBA should actually provide a further interest rate cut next month with private sector growth remaining weak and little evidence to date that prior easing or the tax rebates has done enough to offset the weakness in the economy,” the bank said in a note to clients. “However, for now, the RBA appears to be in a holding pattern, while it assesses the impact of prior rate cuts and ‘the gentle turning point’. “We see an improvement in growth over time but not to a sufficiently strong rate of growth to prevent the unemployment rate beginning to rise. “At the same time, the government does not seem to be inclined to provide material fiscal stimulus in the near term, which increases the need for the RBA to ease further (including a further rate cut and unconventional policy) should our forecast of a deteriorating labour market materialise.” This house at 35 Railway Rd, Fairfield, is for sale.Brisbane couple Kimiora, 25, and Michael Bennallack, 33, are selling their house in Fairfield and hope to make a profit so they can upgrade to a bigger home in the area.They spent the past three years renovating it and are ready to move on to their next project.Mrs Bennallack said access to cheaper credit and the recent interest rate cuts, coupled with the prospect of more to come, had helped them to achieve their goals more quickly.“We refinanced our mortgage at the start of the year, which was really good, and the rate cuts have given us a bit more money in our pockets to do things around the house and give it more street appeal,” Mrs Bennallack said.Marketing agent Maree Grieve of Place – Annerley said the property had already gone under contract after its first open home on Saturday.“We had 29 groups of buyers through, multiple offers and it went under contract on Monday,” Ms Grieve said.“I think what we’re finding is there are definitely a lot more first home buyers in the market because money’s so cheap at the moment.

Swansea snap up Tabanou

first_img Tabanou said he was impressed with the way Swansea, who finished a club-best eighth in the Barclays Premier League last season, handled negotiations. “Once I spoke to the manager (Garry Monk) and the chairman (Huw Jenkins) my mind was made up because I realised they really wanted me. Again, it all matched,” he said. “I was particularly impressed with the manager because he knew everything about me. I was also touched by the fact that he said I was a top signing for Swansea. “I am keen to show I am able to perform in the Premier League – the best league in the world.” Swansea have also confirmed the appointment of former Wales international Tony Roberts as their new first-team goalkeeping coach. Roberts, who joins from Arsenal, replaces Javier Garcia who has returned to his home in Spain for personal reasons after 12 months in south Wales. Swansea manager Monk said: “Tony comes with an excellent reputation as a forward-thinking, modern and knowledgeable goalkeeping coach. “I’ve got no doubt that his talents will strengthen the club’s backroom staff and keep improving and pushing the goalkeepers forward.” Swansea have announced the signing of St Etienne’s Franck Tabanou on a three-year contract. “Tabanou has plenty of experience having played in the Europa League and previously the Uefa Cup, while he has 12 caps for his country at U21 level,” said a Swansea statement on a transfer which is subject to Premier League and international clearance. Paris-born Tabanou’s senior career began at Toulouse where he made nearly 140 appearances before joining St Etienne in the summer of 2013. He scored four goals in 65 appearances in two seasons at St Etienne, twice helping Les Verts into the Europa League with fourth and fifth-placed finishes in Ligue 1. Tabanou described his move to Swansea as the “perfect match” after also attracting interesting from Russian and Turkish clubs. “Swansea is a very good Premier League club and I believe it’s the right move forward for me at this stage of my career,” Tabanou told the club’s official website. “I wanted to come to Swansea because I believe we are the perfect match. “I was aware of Swansea’s interest in me for a while, but unfortunately it didn’t happen back in January. “But I’ve been watching them closely ever since and I like the way they play the game; their whole philosophy on football.” The versatile former France Under-21 international, who can operate on the left side of defence or attack, becomes Swansea’s second summer signing following the capture of Ghana forward Andre Ayew on a free transfer from Marseille. Swansea confirmed the arrival of Tabanou, who they tried to sign during the January transfer window, on the official club website and it is understood they will pay around £3.5million for the 26-year-old, who will primarily provide competition for Wales left-back Neil Taylor.

A young Badger shines on the world’s biggest stage

first_imgIn the history of the Super Bowl, only two running backs have ever had 100 or more yards receiving. Their names? James White, who did it in last year’s Super Bowl, and Corey Clement who did it Sunday. The two were teammates at the University of Wisconsin in 2013 when Clement backed up White and fellow Badger great Melvin Gordon. Sunday in Minneapolis, it was Clement and the Eagles who got the better of White and his Patriots. Clement’s impact on the game cannot be understated. In addition to tallying more than 100 yards receiving, he was involved in arguably two of the biggest plays of the night. He executed a 55-yard reception — the longest play for either team all night — and amazingly, was only his third-biggest play of the night.The first of these two game-changing plays happened in the second quarter on a critical fourth and goal.NFL pass interference unfair, should adopt NCAA rulesThere’s nothing quite like an opponent penalty in college football. The student section breaks into chants and jeers, mocks the Read… Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson elected to forego a field goal attempt and go for a touchdown. His play call was genius and it all began with a direct snap to rookie running back Corey Clement.Clement fielded the snap instead of Eagles quarterback Nick Foles. He then rolled to his left and flipped the ball to tight end, and former high school quarterback, Tre Burton. Burton reversed field and threw a strike to quarterback Nick Foles who had slipped out of the backfield — virtually unnoticed — and was wide open in the end zone. In a postgame interview, a reporter asked Clement about what he thought prior to running such a risky play. His response: “Believing in Coach Peterson’s philosophy. You can’t second guess it.” Clement and the rest of the Eagles bought into the risky play and it resulted in a momentum-changing touchdown and a 10-point lead on the mighty New England Patriots heading into halftime. In the third quarter, Clement once again heard his number called. The Eagles held a slim 22-19 lead at this point when quarterback Nick Foles dropped back and delivered an over-the-shoulder strike to Clement in the back of the end zone. Clement just barely kept his feet in bounds as he hauled in the catch, or so he thought. The referees put the play under replay review which lasted for an agonizingly long time.When asked postgame by reporters what was going through his head during the review Clement said that he prayed to himself, “‘Please don’t take this away from me’ because you never know when these moments are going to come back.”Fergusons and Benzschawels find unique experience in playing with their siblings on the fieldA lot of the atmosphere in football centers around the mentality that there is a brotherhood to the sport, and Read…No matter how much he goes on to accomplish in his career, it is difficult to imagine any career-defining moment eclipsing this one.On the other side of the ball, James White, another former Badger and star of last year’s Super Bowl comeback, had a very strong day himself.

He has been a valuable member of the Patriots for the past two seasons.Former Badger defensive tackle Beau Allen also played in the game, recording two tackles for the Eagles. Meanwhile, former Badger Chris Maragos missed the game with a knee injury.Future appears bright for Wisconsin’s NFL prospectsThe University of Wisconsin has a history of sending players off to successful careers in the NFL. Let’s take a Read…The success of these two running backs is no aberration and follows a consistent trend of Badger running backs finding success in the NFL. Ron Dayne, Montee Ball and breakout, NFL pro bowler Melvin Gordon are just some examples, to name a few. Current UW freshman Jonathan Taylor looks to be next in the seemingly never-ending assembly line of Wisconsin running backs who to move on to NFL success. He’ll have to wait at least another two years until his NFL chance though as pro rules require players to complete their junior season of college football before being eligible for the pros and he is still a true freshman.While Clement’s overnight success in the Super Bowl may be a surprise to some, it shouldn’t be. After all, the Badgers do have a long history of dominating in Minnesota.last_img read more

Powered by Firework Tennis icon Novak Djokovic and his companions are now a subject of enormous criticism from all across the world. The world no. 1 recently hosted a charity tournament name the ‘Adria Tour’ in the cities of of Belgrade and Zadar last weekend, which has backfired hugely. Although Djokovic’s coach Goran Ivanišević recently claimed that the event had clearance from the Serbian and Croatian government, lack of restrictions in the tournament has been the result of multiple COVID-19 cases. The host Djokovic and his wife, and three more players Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Ćorić and Viktor Troicki all have contracted the virus. Meanwhile, Twitter is filled up with savage reprimands towards the Serbian tennis star, as the witty hashtag ‘#Djokovid’ gets trending.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/TwitterSince Dimitrov becoming the first positive case from the event, the final match between  Djokovic and Rublev was dropped, and the rest of the players were also put to test. Now with two more players Ćorić and Troicki confirmed to have contracted the virus, the global Tennis fandom has become furious on Djokovic’s irresponsibility on hosting a tournament and also attending a late night party with other players, while professional tennis itself isn’t returning to action until August.From revered tennis stars around the world tweeting their opinion on the incident, to journalists and netizens getting the #Djokovid hashtag up to trending with savage tweets and memes, below here are some of the best reactions on Djokovic and his blunder of the event and partying.Advertisement World number 1 tennis player.World number 1 dickhead.— Francis Leach (@SaintFrankly) June 23, 2020You know you really screwed up when Nick Kyrgios calls you irresponsible. #Djokovic— Sid Seixeiro (@Sid_Seixeiro) June 23, 2020The Adria Tour became a real-life Greek tragedy for Djokovic: he was the protagonist, he thought it was well-intentioned, but his hubris meant he lost touch with reality and caused his downfall.

No 4 Ohio State mens basketball downs Walsh in exhibition game 8371

The Ohio State basketball team is expected to blow out non-Division I teams, but In the Buckeyes’ Tuesday exhibition game meeting with Walsh, OSU was only 12 points better than the NCAA Division II foe. In their first competitive action since falling in the 2012 NCAA Tournament’s Final Four round, the Buckeyes, ranked No. 4 in the Associated Press preseason top 25 poll, continued prep work for the 2012-13 season with a 83-71 exhibition game win against the Cavaliers Tuesday at the Schottenstein Center. OSU returns three starters – junior forward Deshaun Thomas and junior guards Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr. – from the 2011-12 team that finished with a 31-8 overall record on its way to a national semifinal appearance. That trio combined for 36 points in the game with Thomas leading the way with 25 points on 9-of-17 shooting. Craft said Walsh deserved credit for forcing a close result. “They came in and weren’t backing down. We’ve got a lot of things to learn, a long way to go,” Craft said. “The best thing about it is it’s still October.” OSU will compete in one additional closed-door exhibition game before opening the 2012-13 season at the Carrier Classic on the deck of the USS Yorktown against Marquette Nov. 9, in Charleston, S.C. The score was hardly of consequence in the game, though Walsh might have raised some eyebrows after leading OSU for most of the first half and then keeping the final score close as well. The first half was a period of experimentation for OSU coach Thad Matta. The Buckeyes used nine different combinations of players in the opening 20 minutes, and every scholarship player except junior guard Alex Rogers saw time. Perhaps due to the closer-than-expected outcome, Rogers never made it into the game, nor did walk-on sophomore forward Jake Lorbach. In what might have been a glimpse into the team’s future, Matta went with a towering starting lineup, choosing Thomas, Smith Jr., Craft, 6-foot-8 sophomore forward LaQuinton Ross, and 6-foot-11 sophomore center Amir Williams for the start. Thomas said part of the challenge against Walsh was adjusting to the personnel changes. “Coach (Matta), he said he was going to try different guys. That was going to be a test,” Thomas said. “It worked though. A couple players were off to the side by themselves and, you know, that’s what coach is trying to see. He just wants us to stand in a circle and, you know, (There were) a couple guys out of that circle today, but it was a test. Like Craft said, it’s October. We’re going to be a better basketball team.” Matta said the lineup changes may have stunted the Buckeyes’ abilities in the game and he expected that. “I knew going in I was going to start a different starting lineup,” Matta said. “(We were) throwing a lot of different guys in there, which I was OK with. I was OK that we didn’t play as well as we probably wanted to play.” Despite trailing in the early stages of the contest, OSU took the lead for good at the 2:10 mark in the period when Thomas spun to the rack and laid the ball in as he was fouled. The score and the free throw to follow put the Buckeyes up, 29-27. OSU scrambled on the final possession of the half before Craft heaved a last-second 3-pointer to send the Buckeyes into break with a 39-30 lead. Despite the lead, OSU was out-rebounded in the half, 20-13. The Cavaliers didn’t go away quietly in the second half. Walsh senior forward Kenny Kornowski kept his NCAA Division II team in contention with 12 points in the game on 6-of-15 shooting from the floor. Walsh sophomore forward Jeff Copeland also aided in keeping the Cavaliers competitive as he scored 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting for the visitors. OSU was visibly frustrated in the second half – players clapped in frustration after missed baskets. The team’s anticipated fast-tempo offense was more than Walsh could cope with, though. During OSU’s Oct. 11 media day, players and coaches spoke of the fast-tempo offense and they backed up that talk in the second half against the Cavaliers. The fast-paced offense gave the Buckeyes the points they needed to hold off a Walsh rally. OSU rotated the same 10 players in and out of the game, and closed out the win by the 12-point margin. “It’s frustrating any time you’re losing in a game,” Craft said. “It’s something that you need to experience and you can’t really teach how to play through that, so, facing adversity and facing when things kind of aren’t going your way, that’s something we’re going to have to deal with throughout the year. It’s already hit us. We already have a little taste.” read more

Ohio States Braxton Miller reportedly out for season

OSU senior quarterback Braxton Miller warms up for the first session of fall practice Aug. 4 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center in Columbus. Miller missed the entirety of spring practice after undergoing shoulder surgery.Credit: Tim Moody / Lantern sports editorOhio State senior quarterback Braxton Miller is expected to miss the entire 2014 season after re-injuring his shoulder Monday, according to a Tuesday afternoon ESPN report.Miller, expected to be a Heisman Trophy candidate this season, re-injured his throwing shoulder at practice Monday afternoon, a source close to the team told Lantern TV.According to the source, the team had not yet been informed of Miller’s status as of early Tuesday afternoon.He originally injured the shoulder last season in OSU’s loss to Clemson in the Orange Bowl. After undergoing offseason shoulder surgery, Miller was held out of spring practice and limited through the first portion of fall practice.OSU co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman said Miller was held out of the throwing portions of a Monday morning practice, but was expected to through in the afternoon. That second session was when Miller re-injured his shoulder while throwing the ball.In between practices, Miller said he was “100 percent,” despite experiencing muscle soreness stemming from the shoulder surgery throughout camp.Miller, a native of Huber Heights, Ohio, missed two full games and most of a third in 2013 as a junior. Then-backup Kenny Guiton replaced him and led the Buckeyes to three wins.On Saturday, OSU coach Urban Meyer said redshirt-freshman J.T. Barrett had moved ahead of redshirt-sophomore Cardale Jones in the team’s backup quarterback battle. Herman said the OSU offense has moved the ball better when Barrett is on the field, as opposed to Jones, so far in fall camp.Barrett’s only experience for the Scarlet and Gray outside of practice came in OSU’s 2014 Spring Game when he finished 17 of 33 on pass attempts and racked up 151 yards through the air.OSU’s 2014 season is scheduled to begin at noon Aug. 30 against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. read more
