The Gold Coast suburbs where property prices have surged

first_imgMermaid Beach is just one of the Gold Coast suburbs where property prices have surged in the past five years.HOMEOWNERS who bought property in Mermaid Beach, Helensvale, Currumbin Waters, Palm Beach or Burleigh Heads five years ago are sitting on a gold mine.Property prices in the five suburbs have skyrocketed over the period, with many more than doubling in value.Aaron Wilson, the co-owner of popular burger bar empire Ze Pickle, is one resident who has taken advantage of the exponential growth.He paid $515,000 for a Palm Beach house on Boodera Rd a decade ago as an investment with a grand plan to knock it down and build modern duplexes. Mr Wilson designed and built the duplexes with the help of Architect Shane Denman, of Shane Denman Architects, and builder Shane McLennan, of SDM Builder. What a pool!“We rented it out for a few years, moved in then did a renovation on it,” Mr Wilson said. “It was an original 1970s house.”It wasn’t until about a year ago that the home was knocked down and duplexes started going up.“I ended up selling one side of it to someone who had watched the build from the start.”Mr Wilson got $1.5 million for it — and is now living in the other with his family.Latest CoreLogic data shows the median price for a house has jumped 65 per cent over five years to $820,000.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa17 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days agoInside Mr Wilson’s home. Property prices at Palm Beach have jumped 65 per cent over the past five years.First National Real Estate agent Rhys Wildermoth said the market was reliant on interest rates so believed it would only slow if the Reserve Bank lifted them.“I don’t think it’s going to decline in the next 12 months,” he said.REIQ Gold Coast Zone chairman Andrew Henderson encouraged people to buy in suburbs surrounding those that had experienced massive growth as they were likely to be the next big performers — often because their prices appeared more affordable.“That’s where most of them get the benefits from, off the back of their neighbours doing well price wise,” Mr Henderson said.Top 5 growth suburbs over five years:* Mermaid Beach: Houses up 80.4 per cent $1,562,500.* Helensvale: Units up 72.3 per cent to $570,000.* Currumbin Waters: Units up 65.7 per cent to $464,000.* Palm Beach: Houses up 64.8 per cent to $820,000.* Burleigh Heads: Houses up 63.2 per cent to $832,500.center_img It has an industrial style.Apartment prices have soared 38 per cent in the same period from $320,500 to $442,750.Ray White Mermaid Beach agent Troy Dowker said Palm Beach wasn’t always a popular suburb — its reputation only started to improve when developers saw its potential and the cafe and restaurant scene exploded.“Then the demand for properties in that area with the perception changing … really created that momentum,” Mr Dowker said.He said it was impossible to predict whether the market would continue to grow but confidence was “at an all-time high”. Property prices at Mermaid Beach, Helensvale, Currumbin Waters, Palm Beach and Burleigh Heads have increased the most over the past five years.last_img read more

Laudrup heaps pressure on Gunners

first_img The Gunners exited this season’s competition on Wednesday night, going out on away goals despite a 2-0 win over Bayern Munich in the second leg of their last-16 tie at the Allianz Arena. That leaves Arsene Wenger’s men needing to finish in the top four if they are to feature in the continent’s premier club competition next term. The north London club currently sit fifth in the table, five points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea and seven off Tottenham in third, although they have a game in hand on Andre Villas-Boas’ men. But Laudrup believes they cannot afford give up any more ground when they take on his Swansea side this weekend, saying: “They are disappointed because they are out of Europe.” Swansea manager Michael Laudrup believes Arsenal cannot afford to drop points at the Liberty Stadium this weekend if they are to retain any hope of qualifying for next season’s Champions League. He added: “But I think maybe they had accepted that after the first game against Bayern at the Emirates. “But they come out of this game better than they went in because they have won away against a very good side who are one of the favourites for the Champions League. “They are still five points behind fourth place in the Premier League and I think they will now be going for that, and they have to believe until the very end. “They will try to keep this confidence, Arsene Wenger knows after Saturday’s game there is an international break, so it is very important for them. “Chelsea are at home this weekend, so if they win and Arsenal don’t win here, they would be eight points behind and with only nine games to go that may be too big a gap. “So it is a very important game for them to keep alive the possibility of going into the Champions League next season.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

FDA: Mammography Services at the Breast Institute at JFK Medical Center “Below Standard”

first_imgPatients of the Breast Institute at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis are left with lots of questions after being notified of the “serious concerns” regarding the quality of mammograms they’ve received. A letter sent to patients stated that the exams performed between October thirty-first of 2017 and October 2019 “failed to meet the clinical image quality standards established.” The letter is from the Breast Institute at JFK North. The Breast Institute has released a statement saying they have stopped providing mammography services while they look to improve. The letter focuses on the time between October 2017 and October 2019. The hospital is notifying patients. The letter says the FDA asked the facility to stop performing mammography.Local doctor, Dr. Maureen Whelihan, says patients should not panic.“The good news whatever the problem is it’s being resolved so what do we do with those individuals in the middle of services, ” he said.“If you are uncomfortable with this letter, and you don’t want to proceed with followup at a JFK facility, then you would want to get your records and either have a conversation with a breast surgeon or have your images re-read or re-done somewhere else.”JFK Medical Center released this statement:The Breast Institute at JFK Medical Center North Campus has stopped providing mammography services while we implement a comprehensive plan to improve these services. We are notifying patients who have received scans at our hospital. For patients who had a mammogram during the review period, we are working diligently to have these re-read or re-done, if necessary, at no cost to patients.It’s important to note that this change only affects mammography services; the hospital remains accredited by the Joint Commission, and we’re working closely with the American College of Radiology to improve our mammography services.last_img read more
