It’s pretty simple and it’s the best way to earn big property profits

first_imgHaesley Cush said the best way to achieve property profits was to play the long term game.Bidding started low at $420,000, but then things really started to pump. Back and forth the bids went: $450,000, $475,000, $500,000, $525,000 all the way to $715,000, when things paused.The bid was then raised to $750,000 and “once, twice, third time and sold!”If this home was worth approximately $150,000 in 1998, then that’s a five times return over the last 20 years and that includes a GFC!

Picture: have always had a clear memory of the day a buyer walked in to Ray White Moorooka wanting to spend $200,000.It was 1998, it was my third year as an agent and I was 20. I was sitting at my desk at the front of our office in the Moorvale Village, on Moorooka’s high street and the sun was beaming in past the window cards in the front window filling the room with light.The man walked up to my desk and said “G’day, I’d like to buy a low-set house. I’d like it on either the high side of Moorooka or in Tarragindi and I have up to $200,000 to spend”.I looked up from my desk in amazement. THIS PROJECT WILL CHANGE BRISBANE’S PROPERTY MARKET Two hundred thousand dollars, who on earth has two hundred thousand dollars to buy a house. To give you some context, the average price property we were selling was $120,000 and the really good homes, on the high side of Moorooka or in Tarragindi, would sell in the high $100,000s.Which brings us to today. On Wednesday night I called an auction at 29 Truscott St, Moorooka for Michael Nolan. The house is a two-storey brick home, on the high side of Moorooka, but it is in need of a face lift.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus16 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market16 hours agocenter_img I’m regularly questioned about the best way to make money in real estate and the answer I give is always the same. Buy what you can afford and plan to hold it forever. If I had of told the buyer in 1998 that his house would be worth $750,000 in 20 years, he would react the same way this buyer will if I tell them it would be worth $3.75 million in 2038. Who knows what will play out, but the mind boggles when you think about it.last_img read more

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University women’s basketball team is set to host Illinois State in a Sunday night contest at the Knapp Center starting at 6 p.m. and will be broadcast on The Valley On ESPN3. The matchup with the Redbirds follows a Drake men’s home game vs SIU at 3 p.m. The Drake (11-5, 4-1 MVC) women are coming off an 80-55 win Friday night over Indiana State. The Bulldogs rebounded from poor shooting (34.4 percent) in the first two quarters against the Sycamores to shoot 54.8 percent in the final two while making six three-pointers and a perfect 11-of-11 free throws. For the game, the Bulldogs totaled a 44.4 (28-of-63) percent shooting mark from the field, 36.4 (8-of-22) percent from 3-point range and a stellar 88.9 (16-of-18) percent total from the free throw line.

Blues legend Lampard hails Kante

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesChelsea legend Frank Lampard believes N’Golo Kante is even better than former Blues star Claude Makelele and on current form is the best central midfielder in the world.Lampard has previously likened his ex-Chelsea team-mate Makelele to Kante, who has been outstanding since his move to Stamford Bridge from Leicester.But his performance in Monday’s FA Cup victory over Manchester United further convinced Chelsea’s record goalscorer that Kante is on a another level.Speaking on the BBC, Lampard said: “I compared him to Claude Makelele last season, but he’s got even more to his game than Makelele.Kante scored Chelsea’s winner against United“I would go so far as to say N’Golo Kante is the best central midfield player in the world right now.”Lampard was also full of praise for Eden Hazard, who could not be suppressed by United despite being the victim of some crunching challenges from the visitors, particularly in the opening 25 minutes of the game.Lampard said: “Eden Hazard has been incredible. I was lucky enough to play with him myself and I saw the potential in him as a young player.“Great ability, very carefree kind of player, very laid back off the pitch, but when he plays he has that magic.”“And once he gets into those central areas he can add goals and assists to his game and move himself into the real top bracket of world football.”See also:Chelsea see off Man Utd to set up semi-final clash with SpursMourinho tells Chelsea fans he is ‘still number one’United’s treatment of Hazard annoys ConteChelsea v Man Utd player ratings Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

crowdSPRING Adds Writing Jobs to Its Creative Services Marketplace

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market chris cameron Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#start#startups A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting In the last few months, we’ve focused from time to time on design and how it affects startups. One of the larger issues that comes up that goes hand-in-hand with design is the copywriting that accompanies that design. The importance of carefully crafted wording can not be understated; after all, the words are what actually speaks to your audience when they visit your site. Copywriting is as much an art and a skill as design is, and that’s why the crowdsourced design network crowdSPRING is now including copywriting jobs for bids on their site. As of Wednesday, the popular service opened up their designer’s club to include copywriters. Now clients looking to crowdsource text for any use can log onto crowdSPRING, set up a contest for users to submit their work to, set a reward price, and watch the entries roll in. The writing jobs can be as short as a name for company or text for a website, or as long as an essay, script or book. Various types of writing jobs are grouped into five categories: business, creative, editing, naming and online.So far only ten jobs have been submitted, but the site’s network has already feverishly kicked into gear, submitting nearly 1500 entries in just over a day. The current projects range in reward payout from $200 to $1500, the latter being a private project asking for a presentation. Another of these first ten projects posted comes from the City of Chicago which is hosting an elevator pitch contest on the site. Chicago-based Small businesses can submit a written version of their 30 second pitch for a chance to win $500 and a free booth at the upcoming Small Business Expo in July. “By using crowdSPRING for our annual competition, we’re hoping to get some amazing elevator pitches,” said Chicago City Treasurer Stephanie Neely. “We’re optimistic we’ll find the talent we need and build buzz around our competition, and hope the innovative submission process will help drive participation and attendance around our business plan competition.”Earlier this week, we discussed whether crowdsourcing and outsourcing were wise business practices for startups. Some argued that early stage startups may be too fragile to rely too heavily on these practices, but most agreed that if used correctly, crowdsourcing and outsourcing could be valuable tools to startups. In this light, startups can certainly benefit from these new services provided by crowdSPRING.Startups without the sufficient staff to cover media and public relations can use the service to produce emails, newsletters, blogs and other materials they may not be able to create effectively on their own. First time entrepreneurs who’ve never written a business plan can now use the site to crowdsource a solution instead of toiling over it themselves, provided they give the applicants sufficient information regarding the company. At the very least, an entry like this could be modified or used as a starting point for a more involved plan.However, a startup may be reluctant to crowdsource business materials for fear of revealing private business information to the site’s users. What if a user sees a job for a business plan detailing a startups roadmap for success and decides to steal the idea? According to crowdSPRING, they have been forced to ban users for violating the site’s IP rules in the past.“We work together with our entire community… to identify possible violations of intellectual property,” the site says. “We expect that people in our community will share the community’s core values, which includes the protection of and respect for intellectual property.”It seems that IP security is not something crowdSPRING takes lightly, as this blog post makes very clear. For any business, theft of intellectual property is an inherent risk with oursourcing and crowdsouring, but it would seem that the service is going to great lengths to ensure their users are safe.
