‘Dirty, smelly, awful’ is turning into gold for our newest millionaires

first_imgProperty investor and renovator Vivienne Halliday at her latest project in Bardon. Pic Peter WallisA new breed of millionaires has emerged in Queensland, who buy, renovate and flip properties, making as much as $100,000 off just eight weeks’ work.This as experts find women, especially in their mid-40s to 50s, increasingly using property flipping as a strategy to supercharge retirement funds and even head into early retirement.Dale Beaumont, author of Secrets of Property Millionaires Exposedsaid there were three ways to make money off property — buying really well, holding for a long period of time or adding value through renovation, addition or subdivision.“In a rising market you can add tens to hundreds of thousands to a property,” he told The Sunday-Mail. “Now is a really great time (to buy for flipping). It’s definitely a buyers market. There is less competition right now.” A survey by the School of Renovating found two in every five women renovating to flip properties was 45 to 54 years old, while a third were older 55 to 64. Most use subcontractors to do the work but two-thirds take on some of the DIY themselves.Property investor Vivienne Halliday, 56, has flipped 10 properties and plans to do two more a year for the next three years before “semi-retirement”.

Fixer uppers in prized locations hot for buyers Brisbane house price hits new high Sun finally shines on Townsville market “I’m looking for dirty, smelly, really awful from the outside. That sort of thing reduces buyers so I don’t have much competition and it helps get the price down. It has to be well below market value,” she said of the properties chosen for flips.“I’ve always loved property, old houses especially but my husband works Fly In, Fly Out, so it’s my way to getting some money to get him home (earlier).”She started on “little bits” around her home then threw herself into learning about property investment and began buying and flipping. “I saw what other people were doing, buying one that had land to subdivide and a house to renovate, then sell both.” More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus12 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market12 hours agoHuge Aerial Panorama of the Brisbane Skyline, Queensland, Australia. Converted from RAW.The most she’s ever spent on a renovation, she said was $120,000, because the home was so run down by white ants it needed a new roof.“Most are below that, I try and keep the costs low because that’s your profit.”Profit, she said, was about “$100,000 per property” but “that depends on where it is”.“I’m certainly not going to say no to a good $20-30,000 profit if it’s quick and easy but I aim for $100,000.”Mr Beaumont said “typically you want the worst house in the street or one that will require a lot of TLC” to do a fix and flip well.For the greater Brisbane area, he recommended areas 15km outside the city, where there was “good public transport and a good family area”.His top tip was to find two or three suburbs that met that criteria, look at 100 properties that have sold there, make offers on five and “hopefully one or two will be accepted”.“Once you’ve seen 100 properties, you know what represents good value and what doesn’t,” he said. And, he said, whatever happened, “do not become emotionally connected” to properties.“It’s a great time to buy slightly under market value, and when the market does bounce back you will already have equity. What you could do is buy properties now that have potential for renovation in future, hold on for two years and then renovate a little bit later on.” FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOKlast_img read more

Nigeria’s Cricket Victory Sparks Hope for a Once Dwindling Game

first_imgUgo AliogoThe victory secured by the Junior Yellow Green, Nigeria’s Under-19 cricket national team at the ICC Under-19 World Cup Africa Division Two Qualifier Tournament in Potchefstroom, South Africa, earlier in the week is a bold statement that Nigeria cricket is on the path to continental relevance once again.But this did not come cheap and would not be maintained by idleness. The team that won the event had been in camp for over two months between Benin City in Edo State and Kaduna where the 40 players who starred in the preliminary round were pruned to 27 and then the final 14. The team thereafter went on a four-match tour of Uganda where they engaged the country’s Under-19 and the Under-23 teams in trial games before heading for the tournament in South Africa.According the President of Nigeria Cricket Federation (NCF), Professor Yahaya Ukwenya, “The victory was not a walk in the park. We worked for it. The win in South Africa is both a reward and a call for more work,” he added.Most of the players got pulled in from the pockets of private teams and leagues that dots different cricket clusters around the country.“We knew that getting the nation back to the heights it deserved will need us getting everyone to support whatever the NCF was doing at the centre. Despite the sinking state of Nigeria cricket reputation, there were still deep- seated interest in the game. What we lacked was the leadership to seize the initiative, bring together all interest groups and develop and execute a workable roadmap to a desirable future for this game,” observed the NCF president.In less than six months after assuming leadership of NCF, Ukwenya and his team have cracked up a document that spelt out the federation’s immediate needs and how to approach them, including engaging consultants, past players and keeping a focused youth programme in place.He said: “Getting funding became one of the key factors here, so, we decided to engage all means possible including, taking deliberate actions to keep the sport marketable and attractive to corporate bodies and of course having in mind deliverables that would keep such relationship a win-win affair for everybody.”By April 2018, the NCF had also bidded and won the rights to two continental events; the International Cricket Councils T-20 World Cup Qualifier and the Africa Cricket Association running back-to-back at the now revamped Tafawa Balewa Square Cricket Oval in Lagos.Vice President of the NCF, Uyi Akpata, said hosting the two events last April served a number of purposes for the game; it allowed NCF to deepen her international affiliations with the global and continental bodies. It helped the body to upgrade one of the prime facilities in the country to international standard and again put the players on the spot.“I believe that after the event in April, we had a number of things to learning from but the most important thing was that we were not where we were again,” stressed the NCF who is also a golf aficionado.Uyi believed that the outcome of the two events in which Nigeria finished in runner up places behind Ghana along with training programmes that the indigenous coaches were exposed to, including the contracting of South African cricket legend, Makhaya Ntini, as Technical assistant, came very helpful for Nigeria in mastering the rope.“Nigeria Cricket took the leap after the two events we hosted in April. Most of the discipline and depth that the present Under-19 team have, was a result of so many learnings we have made along way of executing our planned programmes as a federation,” he added.The Nigeria Cricket Federation has continued to invest in her high performance development in terms of coaches’ education, umpires and scorers development. This process saw the Federation send six officials (Coaches and Umpires) to South Africa for advanced coaches’ education courses.Three of Nigeria Umpires were also part of officials for the just concluded tournament. Enesi Dahiru who is also on the NCF Board as the technical representative, Kehinde Olanbiwonu who was the only Nigerian at the April West Africa T20 World Cup Qualifier and Musa Ehizoje also a member of the umpires’ association joined elite African umpires at this event. This is the highest number of umpires from Nigeria at any ICC event.In the meantime, the federation won the hearts of Lagos State Government, Transport Services Limited, Eroton Exploration and Production and Visionscape to back a number of their activities too.Hence when the opening whistle for the final match between Nigeria and Sierria Leone was blown in Potchefstroom on Tuesday, the Junior Yellow Green knew that beyond the preparations they have gone through; they held the hope of a new dawn for the game back home.They had earlier overpowered Ghana, Mozambique and Lesotho in the group stages then went on to dispatch Tanzania in the semi-final.Only Sierra Leone, posted a blameless record at the event as Nigeria before they met on Tuesday. But Nigeria rated better on aggregate Net Rate of Return.According to Nigeria’s Captain, Sylvester Okpe before the match; “We put every victory so far behind us, in fact we have told ourselves we will celebrate only after we win the final match, because that is the only thing that mattered here.”Uthe Ogbimi, coach of the Nigerian team noted that the players were focused and, the exposure they had, the long training schedule by the federation and the depth of the technical team were the assets of the team.So, as the 50 overs final got underway, it was not long before Elijah Olaleye unleashed terror from his bat on the Sierra Leoneans.Former National Captain, Endurance Ufem, who is also Player’s Rrepresentative on the NCF board said of the team; “They were majestic. I followed the match online as I could not be there live. When the statistics came reeling in, I could picture the torture that was in our opponent’s mind. Our opening batsman (Elijah Olaleye) was ‘savage’. He killed the game before the opponents were ready.” He led with an unbeaten 110 off 124 balls. Samuel Mba on the other hand, shared a first wicket stand of 148 runs before departing in the 35th over on 62 off 124 balls which set the tone for the 242 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in allotted 50 overs.Then came Nigeria’s best bowler at the tournament, Peter Aho. He led the onslaught by claiming five wickets, 35 runs, one maiden in four overs, while the duo of Mohammed Taiwo and Abdulrahman Jimoh claimed two wickets apiece to reduce their opponents to a paltry 105 runs all out in 31 overs.The Sierra Leoneans in response to the intimidating scores Nigeria recorded in the first innings found it difficult to cope in the batting crease but the likes of Captain George Ngeba (31), Osman Sankoh and Emmanuel Akpo had 14 runs, while Haroun Kamara added 13 runs in a disappointing effort from the side that waltzed through every opponent up until the moment they met Nigeria in the final.With the results, Nigeria leads Division 2 qualifiers along with Sierra Leone and Tanzania to compete in Division One (Venue yet to be confirmed in 2019) along Namibia, Kenya and Uganda.As part of recognition of efforts put in by the current board, organisers of the Africa T20 Cup in South Africa have invited Nigeria to join elite province and countries in the Africa Cup scheduled to commence in South Africa from 13th of September, 2018.Four of the Present crop of U19 players will also remain and spend two weeks in a private cricket Academy in Cape Town ahead of the arrival of the rest of the Senior National Team early September.With these new gains made so far this year, it is obvious that the Nigeria Cricket Federation has rekindled hope in this gentlemanly sport in Nigeria. It is now just a matter of sustaining this new drive for the country to take her place amongst the elites of Cricket in the continent. Who knows, global recognition in cricket could be lurking in the horizon for Nigeria.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Nigeria’s Under-19 cricket team, the Junior Yellow Green, celebrating their victory in South African…recentlylast_img read more

Lyle Thompson’s 3 goals carry Iroquois to opening-night win over US

first_imgThe first time the Americans disrupted the Iroquois Nationals’ momentum was when players from both teams swarmed midfield bodying each other up on the brink of a brawl before halftime.But seconds later, Lyle Thompson put the Iroquois back in control, and up 8-4, with a 15-yard sidearm rip at the buzzer.After Team USA cut the lead to one at the end of the third, Thompson kicked off the fourth quarter with another goal. For the second time, he added to the Iroquois’ cushion and ended the Americans’ comeback while sparking a four-goal fourth-quarter run.“When it’s a one-goal game, two goals are real important,” Iroquois head coach Rick Kilgour said of Lyle Thompson. “Big players make big plays in big games. He’s proven over and over again he’s a big-time player and he came up big when the team needed him.”On the first day of the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship, Lyle Thompson’s three timely goals helped the host nation Iroquois defeat the United States 13-9 in front of a sold-out crowd at the War Memorial Arena on Friday night.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Iroquois benefitted from three power-play opportunities early on and got out to a 4-1 lead in the first quarter. The U.S.’s defense struggled matching up with Miles Thompson and Randy Staats, who set the tempo with off-ball movement and slick passes in tight spaces.Late in the second quarter, Team USA’s Jeff Ratcliffe ran to midfield and shoved Sid Smith to the ground several seconds after the referee’s whistle blew. Players from both teams clustered in the middle and the Americans had one of their best chances to change the game’s momentum, in need of something to spark a potential comeback.But just the opposite happened as Thompson, a two-time Tewaaraton Award winner, scored his first goal of the tournament.“Especially at the end of the half, those are back breakers,” U.S. head coach Tony Resch said.Logan Reidsma | Photo EditorThe U.S. kept it close in the third quarter making it a one-goal game, but it was Thompson who made the most of the fourth as the Nationals’ halftime adjustments finally took effect.“Every time we passed the ball three or four times, we usually got a good shot on net,” the Iroquois’ Jeff Shattler said. “So, our game plan worked.”Early on, Thompson was more of a facilitator. He helped distribute the ball as his brother, Miles Thompson, scored three first-half goals. But Kilgour wanted Lyle Thompson to use his speed and once he started getting the ball in his stick, the Iroquois put the game away in the fourth quarter.Slashing from the top left of the offensive zone, blowing by multiple defenders and easily picking his spot to slip the ball into the net, Lyle Thompson scored his second goal.With the game already out of reach and just minutes remaining, he did it again by cutting in front of the net and picking up a rebound, tiptoeing the crease and sliding the ball in to pad the Iroquois’ lead.Lyle Thompson’s three goals weren’t a team high, but they came at crucial moments.“Carrying into halftime obviously it got us going,” Lyle Thompson said. “… we came out a little slow in the third, but once it came to the fourth, we definitely got it going (again).” Comments Published on September 19, 2015 at 7:47 am Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschweds Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
