A local businessman plans to land bank the site.A high-profile local businessman purchased the block, which was best suited as a new house site, according to Mr Dowker. “The buyer purchased it as a long-term hold, it’s a land banking investment for his property portfolio,” he said. “The interest in that area has really gained popularity in the last three or four years. “It’s low density, a narrow corridor with easy access to amenities and the main attraction is that it’s a very relaxed vibe there. “It’s not vibrant at all, just a very chilled, laid-back living environment.” The four dwelling are rented out for $1160 each week.The four two-bedroom pads reap $1160 rental income each week and are in original condition. Bilinga has a $885,000 median house price, which has grown by 63.9 per cent in the last three years, according to the latest CoreLogic data.

The 506sq m property was announced on the market at $1.82 million and the hammer fell at a staggering $1.936 million — more than $100,000 above expectations. It sold for a whopping $1.936 million.Ray White Mermaid Beach agent Troy Dowker, who marketed the property at 124 Pacific Pde, said bidding kicked off at $1.5 million with 51 bids placed in total. Bidding started in $100,000 and $50,000 increments before dropping down to $5000 and $1000 bids as the almost 30 minute auction drew to an end. “There is an original 1940s circa house at the front and three 1950s circa flats tacked onto the back of it,” Mr Dowker said. “They are all fibro and would be one of the oldest in the area. “The sale underpins the strength of the beachfront market in the southern end.” MORE NEWS: Olympian strike gold as holiday home fetches millions More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa10 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day ago MORE NEWS: Inside the Coast’s highest selling properties Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:58Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:58 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD432p432p216p216p180p180pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

UW out for revenge against SCS

September 17, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgGREG DIXON/Herald photoAfter starting the season ranked No. 1, the Wisconsinwomen?s hockey team had nowhere to go but down. For the entire month ofNovember, it seemed like all the Badgers did was fall further and furtherbehind. During an eight-game stretch in November the women?s hockey team went2-5-1 and looked nothing like back-to-back national champions.One reason for the team?s early struggles is theirdependence on five freshmen ? who have never had to balance college classes andcollege hockey before ? to play major minutes for the team.?It is always difficult to play your first semester and toplay hockey while you are preparing for your first exams,? junior goaltenderJessie Vetter said of the freshmen. ?So once school ended, and we just focusedon playing hockey and having fun, our team started to do a lot better.?Since the rough skid in November, however, UW (16-6-2,12-4-2 WCHA) is riding a six-game win streak in which almost all members of theteam have contributed. One major reason for the team?s turnaround is theoffense?s rejuvenation and ability to find the back of the net. In the past sixgames the team has averaged 3.5 goals per game.?The biggest reason that we are winning is our ability toscore three or more goals in a game,? head coach Mark Johnson said. ?In thegames that we weren?t successful, we only scored one or two goals. Our defensehas remained pretty good all season, so when we score three or more there is agood chance that we are going to win.?Despite their recent offensive success, however, someplayers still think the team could be scoring more goals.?To tell you the truth, I think that we should have scoredsix goals in all of those games,? senior Jinelle Zaugg said. ?We had a lot ofchances to score more goals, and we need to work on finishing thoseopportunities.?This weekend, the No. 5 Badgers will face No. 9 St. CloudState (15-5-4, 10-5-3 WCHA) at the Kohl Center. The Huskies ? who split a two-gameseries earlier this year against the Badgers ? are a scrappy team that has wona lot of close games this year and will present a strong challenge for UW?srevitalized offense.?Their goaltender can play exceptionally well,? Johnsonsaid. ?We out-chanced them and out-shot them last time, but she came up big,and we couldn?t find the back of the net in the first game.?Along with the usual motivation for winning the game, theBadgers have placed a little extra emphasis on sweeping the Huskies thisweekend. Back when these two teams met in September, UW was on an NCAA-record,32-game undefeated streak, which ended at St. Cloud in a 2-1 loss.?We want to win every game, but there is a little extramotivation because they did break our streak,? Vetter said. ?But in the end itis just another WCHA weekend, and we have to get four points out of it.?Along with the pressure to win this weekend, the Badgers arefacing mounting pressure to catch up in the WCHA race. With only ten more gamesto play, UW trails University of Minnesota-Duluth by eight points in theconference and probably needs to win out to have a shot at the WCHA title.?We have got ten games left, and we are trying to win themall,? Johnson said. ?With that said, however, you can only take the games oneday at a time, and right now we are focused on St. Cloud State.??We like the pressure,? Vetter added. ?Ourteam has made it a goal to win out, and we will work hard and see whathappens.?last_img read more
