Almost $1 million for this ‘renovator’s delight’

first_imgThe agent fielded eight written offers before the auction.On auction day, 15 registered bidders looked to make it theirs, but it was a Brisbane buyer who landed the home at the near $1-million-price tag.According to Mr Murray the buyer has experience with renovations.“We’ve got a happy buyer and a happy seller — but it exceeded expectations for sure.“I think there’s still a lot of growth. I think we’re just at the point where the pin is about to drop and were about to see a lot more of these big sales — especially in unrenovated, well positioned, well marketed property.”Mr Murray says although the sale was to a local purchaser, interstate interest in Brisbane is growing.“People coming up from the southern states looking to buy something that close to the city on a 405sq m for under a million dollars is unheard of down there, whereas they come up here and you could almost buy two for the price of one.” This Brisbane ‘renovator’s delight’ has sold at auction for $970,000.Buyers are fronting up big dollars for fixer-upper homes in some of Brisbane’s best suburbs — and it could be just the beginning if the $970,000 sale of 10 Bernhard St, Paddington is any indication. The agent believes demand for unrenovated property in Paddington is only just ramping up.center_img 10 Bernhard St Paddington will require some work to unearth its full potential.The three-bedroom, one-bathroom renovator’s delight sits on an elevated 405sq m allotment close to cool cafe’s and boutique retail, but it will take quite a bit of work to unearth a grand residence from the modest home.While at this stage the property only has ‘city glimpses’, there is potential to take things up a notch, according to Andrew Murray, sales agent at Ray White Paddington.Mr Murray said he was able to leverage off previous selling campaigns and brings an extraordinary level of competition to Bernhard St.“I had a couple of properties recently that I sold — unrenovated cottages in Paddington.”More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home5 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor5 hours agoMr Murray said the property had a great sales campaign with 93 groups at open homes, 25 private inspections and eight written offers before auction.“Given the amount of work we put in, it didn’t surprise me,” he said.last_img read more

‘Get your damn act together’: Jerry Jones loses cool in radio interview after Cowboys’ latest loss

first_imgCowboys owner Jerry Jones was not in a pleasant mood Friday morning when he called in to Dallas radio station 105.3 The Fan.After his team’s ugly 31-24 loss to the Bears on “Thursday Night Football,” Jones was asked several questions about why Dallas hasn’t lived up to expectations in 2019. The Cowboys are now below .500 (6-7) after several NFL analysts predicted a strong season. Almost immediately after calling in, Jones stated his displeasure with the radio station. The second question of the interview asked Jones if he was embarassed by the Cowboys’ performance, and the owner skipped the question to complain about the tone.“Get your damn act together yourself. OK? Settle down just a little bit,” Jones said. “I don’t like your attitude to come in. I’ve been traveling all night and don’t have the patience to jack with you today.”I’ve never heard Jerry this mad in his life. I’d be mad too if I caused this.— Jeff Cavanaugh (@JC1053) December 6, 2019MORE: Why Urban Meyer coaching the Cowboys makes more sense than a return to collegeJones was asked about the future of Jason Garrett, as the coach has been tied to several rumors speculating about him being fired. He settled down a bit after being asked this question, and says he understands why those questions come up.”Our fans are frustrated that we’re not playing better,” Jones said. “I fully expect to have those questions [about Garrett’s future] and I know that if you really think about it, if I did have answers as to different directions regarding talent, I would not share them right now. Because first of all, if you’ve got other team’s talent in mind, that’s tampering. Unless they’re not involved in the NFL, and it wouldn’t be smart if they were involved other places.”At one point Jones asked, “Do you understand bulls—?” Jerry Jones on with 105.3 in Dallas at the top of the interview:“Get your damn act together yourself OK? … Settle down just a little bit… I don’t like your attitude”Later, when I asked if he understands questions about Garrett’s job:“Do you understand bullshit?”🔊⬇️ pic.twitter.com/4uAXdZcyH2— Warren Sharp (@SharpFootball) December 6, 2019The context around this quote is a little confusing since the radio station’s system automatically hangs up on a caller if they are cursing too much. That’s what happened here, and after Jones was disconnected he called back in to the radio station.He was later asked about Cowboys fans wanting him to fix what’s wrong with the team.“That’s fair, that’s very fair. Jerry, do something,” Jones said. “Go fix it. Do something different, even if it’s wrong. Go fix it. I get it.”last_img read more
