first_imgRunaway Bay is also tipped to grow steadily. The property at 7 Wau Ave recently sold for $1.6 million.“Broadbeach Waters, I feel that’s been increasing (because of) the amount of new buildings that are being built in the area and a lot of the older ones are disappearing,” he said.“Miami is very similar.”He said the Coast’s strong economy, jobs growth and quality infrastructure would help keep the property market alive.Ray White Broadbeach Waters-Mermaid Waters principal Mitch Palmer said the wave of construction meant there was confidence in the area, but its position was ultimately what attracted buyers.“When you look at the lifestyle benefits the suburb provides, the big priority for buyers is waterfront living and the beach,” he said.“That’s where this suburb being so central ticks those boxes.” Burleigh WatersCarraraCoomera There are five suburbs on the Gold Coast tipped to have steady price growth in the near future.

Broadbeach Waters is tipped to see steady growth in the near future. The property at 3 Nootka Court recently sold for $1.635 million.“This market was strong from 2015 to 2017 because of the pre-Commonwealth Games construction boom. “Since then the growth has subsided and we can find only five growth suburbs in Gold Coast city, but 41 suburbs classified as either ‘plateau’ or ‘consistency’ markets and three ‘decline’ markets.”Burleigh Waters, Carrara and Coomera were identified as declining markets.REIQ Gold Coast zone chairman Andrew Henderson said the types of properties on offer and asking prices might be causing some suburbs to fall into declining markets.However, he said properties in rising markets were popular because they were changing.

O’Brien targets series win

first_img O’Brien swept the final ball from Saeed Ajmal to the boundary to level the scores. Asked if he thought Ireland could win Sunday’s decider and claim a first series win over a full-member nation, he said: “Yeah definitely, there’s no reason to fear Pakistan.” He continued: “They are obviously a great side, you have to give them the respect they deserve, but we’ve come so close here. “If the ball bounces another way on Sunday we come away with a victory. “We just have to look at where we didn’t quite perform as a team and come back on Sunday and improve it.” Pakistan had appeared in full control when Mohammad Hafeez’s fifth ODI century helped them to 266 for five – a total bumped up to 275 on the Duckworth-Lewis Method after three over were lost to rain. Ireland were, however, on track for the majority of their chase after opener Paul Stirling scored his second century against Pakistan in as many games. O’Brien then almost completed the job, thrashing an unbeaten 84 from 47 balls, to leave the series poised heading into Sunday’s game. All-rounder Kevin O’Brien is confident Ireland can claim a series win over Pakistan after Thursday’s dramatic tie in the first RSA Insurance one-day international in Dublin.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
