Welcome Remember that film and book from several years ago called The Secret? Its message was that anything could be accomplished or acquired by believing in a positive outcome and maintaining a positive emotional state, and it got us talking, from boardrooms to barbecues. Oprah and Ellen devoted entire shows to it, magazines and newspapers pondered its veracity. The book was translated into dozens of languages and hit the top spot on The New York Times bestseller list, where it stayed for close to three years. It got its fair share of criticism, too – claimed by many as metaphysical mumbo jumbo, it gave cynics and comedians plenty of material. But The Secret was actually nothing new. Philosophers, pop culture theorists, self-help gurus, even quantum physicists have been pondering the law of attraction – the theory it was based on – for more than 100 years. And after a few years of worrying about falling property prices and shaky share markets, we reckon there might be something to this law of attraction. It hasn’t been an easy few years, but in our cover story this week Jarna Baudinette asks, are we victims of our own negativity? Turn to page 6 and decide for yourself.

n London last week, a set of giant Olympic rings was put on a barge and sent down the River Thames. The 25-metre wide by 11-metre high rings were launched to mark 150 days until the opening of the 2012 London Olympic Games, and to remind the locals it was time to get excited about the year ahead. A spokesperson from the Lord Mayor’s office told reporters Londoners had been hearing plenty of negativity lately – mainly surrounding the economy, on both a national and a global scale – and the rings were partly designed to serve as a huge visual reminder that there was still plenty to look forward to. Perhaps this is something we all need to hear, especially when hen it comes to our property market. The GFC, the 2011 floods, credit dramas in Europe and a touch of political instability at combined to make us nervous home have all combi investors, and while n no one is disputing that it’s been a tough few year years for real estate, it seems our own lack l k off confid fid dence has partly contributed confi to a downturn in marke ket activit market activity. As RP Data’s re esearch d research director, Tim Lawless, wrote in a blo blog post last September, tthere is a strong correlation n betw between overall consume mer con consumer confidence and the he ealth of the housing health mark market. ket. ““The importance of a po positive consumer min mindset ind is simple,” he wro wr wrote, because “for a pro pr prospective buyer to o make a highccommitment purchase decision p like buying a li home, they need ho to have a base line level of lin optimism”, both opt about their abou own financial prospects and prospe of the tthose o housing market. h The T he same post cited from the cit ted data fr Westpac-Melbourne Wes stpac-Mel Institute showing an Instit tute showin 84 per cent trend correlation correlatio on between

consumer confidence and national real estate sales volumes since the start of 2008. In a report released by ANZ in late January, senior economist David Carrington identified “further deterioration in market sentiment” as one of the main risks to the Australian property sector over the coming year. The residential real estate market has been cooling since early 2010, despite the fact that Australian households’ overall financial stability has strengthened in that time, with a growth in average disposable income and increased household savings. Australia’s “housing market fundamentals remain supportive”, the report said, suggesting softened activity had been “driven mainly by a shift in market sentiment rather than any significant forced liquidation of housing due to financial stress”. While prices in some areas may well be sitting

below their mid 2000s peak, it seems our houses aren’t worthless just yet. So why are some people talking as though they are? There’s the old adage that misery loves company, and if you frequent internet news blogs you’ll know it’s easy to post a glum comment when everyone else is, especially regarding the health of the local economy. But as well as giving us ulcers and making us boring to be around, this negativity and hesitation may well be part of what’s been keeping our housing market in a slump. And with Coast agents reporting an increase in buyer activity in the first two months of 2012, it might be time we all started to look on the bright side again.

3/6/2012 12:55:34 PM


First National Maroochydore principal Rod McLean has been selling real estate on the Coast since 1989, and says our beautiful surrounds should be reason enough to smile. “We’re honestly very lucky to live in one of the best places in the world,” he says. “I hear stories of people who travel the world and return to the Coast, because they say it doesn’t get much better than what we’ve got here. How many times have we heard that?” People travel the The reasons people wanted to buy a home world and return on the Coast in peak to the Coast, times are the same as because it they are today – we have sunny weather (most of doesn’t get much the time), beautiful better than what beaches, great schools and you’ll rarely sit in we’ve got here traffic for more than 10 minutes, even during Rod McLean, the busiest tourist times. First National Maroochydore “This is still the Sunshine Coast and it’s still where people want to live,” Rod says. He agrees people need to be positive about what is happening, both locally and on a national scale, “because negative talk brings uncertainty”. Rod attributes the “hiccup” the market has experienced recently to this uncertainty, and encourages people to take a long-term view when considering their real estate assets. “I’ve been selling in this street [Duporth Avenue in Maroochydore] for 23 years, and in that time we’ve seen the market change many times,” he says. “Real estate is cyclical, like everything else, but it’s a long-term, big-picture industry. If you look at what a house was worth 10 years ago compared with today, you’ve still gained. Prices might have come back a bit at the moment, but consider what you might have over the next 10 or 15 years.” Aq quick look at our upcoming development

Page 7.indd 1

shows the Coast has been singled out for future growth during this period. In the next five to 10 years our region is set to be home to Australia’s largest residential land estate, at Caloundra South, and also the country’s single biggest health infrastructure project, with the construction of a new multibillion-dollar hospital precinct in Kawana. Projects of this scale are hardly indicative of a declining area, and it bears repeating that both are set to breathe new life into the Coast, bringing homes, residents, jobs and hopefully a much-needed optimism boost – all good things for the local property market. In the meantime, it’s worth remembering softer prices mean better buying opportunities. If your property sells for a price that is below your initial expectation, odds are you’ll be able to buy at a lower price as well. Finally, a lack of positivity can prevent you from making savvy investment choices in future. In its most recent quarterly report, national financial advisory firm Ord Minnett reported that “indicators point to growth, not contraction, in the global economy”, but was concerned hesitant investors might “fail to participate more fully” in the predicted turnaround. This applies to real estate investment as well – Ord Minnett again sees the fundamentals of the residential market as remaining sound, but like ANZ it predicts only a slow rise in consumer sentiment. Considering the buying opportunities present in the current market, the lesson is simple – if you sit back and wait, you might miss out. So try to look on the bright side – as well as making yourself happier, you’ll be doing the local property market a favour.

GOOD VIBRATIONS

If you need another reason to think positively about the current market, consider that your mood as a buyer or seller can influence the entire transaction. We’ve all heard of positive and negative energy and how it impacts our experience (for example, if you go to the cinema expecting to hate a movie, chances are you won’t enjoy it), and local auctioneer Jason Andrew says this idea carries over into real estate. “The point here is the energy the agent derives from a seller who is not realistic, versus when they are,” Jason says. Agents can get “bogged down” with unrealistic seller expectations, whereas properties without this pressure – say, a mortgag ee in possession or deceased estate sale – usually “have multiple bidders, and great prices are achieved.”

A snapshot of who’s doing what in the industry

New agency launched Local agent Ross Cattle leads his team in a new direction.

H

arcourts Mooloolaba principal Ross Cattle this week announced the re-branding of his business, which is now known as Define Property. Ross says he hopes to create an organisation that exceeds expectations, and the new branding is a key component of that goal. Effective this weekend, this change signals an exciting time for Ross and his team. While the name has now changed, Ross says the dedicated team has not, and he remains the business owner and principal. “The main focus of Define Property will be selling and managing residential property with a range of complementary services to make it simple for clients to do business,” Ross says, adding that the office can still be found in Mooloolaba’s Zanzibar building. “In addition to the residential and property management teams, we will also offer expert support in areas of home loans, project marketing, investments sales, commercial sales and leasing,” he adds.

Ross believes this new direction will give his business the resilience needed in the local real estate industry.

Taking the lead This week’s results show that Coast buyers weren’t keen to risk the bidding not going their way on auction day. Several properties went under contract prior to auction, including a mid ’80s beachside abode at 17 Adori Street, Currimundi. The home was set to feature in this week’s upcoming auction list, however, agent Rob Whiting from RE/MAX Property Services tells MPP it sold a week before going under the hammer. And although the property at 47-55 Dales Road, Chevallum did go to auction on Sunday afternoon, the buyers also didn’t wait around – the home was under contract immediately post auction. Richard Scrivener from Next Property Group says the new owners are originally from the UK and wanted a more expansive acreage lifestyle.

ictorian firm NMBW Architecture Studio has its own take on the beach shack, with the Sorrento house. Taking its cue from the humble tent, the home offers a square floor plan with pitched roof. The building’s core features the living and sleeping spaces, and the perimeter houses the semi-enclosed

verandahs and vestibules. Flyscreens and timber shutters line the floor-to-ceiling openings. Internal floor spaces are seamlessly connected to one another, and while it seems that this contributes to a lack of privacy, the connections are so carefully considered that a sense of privacy is still maintained.

Built in a moderate bushfire zone, the house has been lifted onto supports to reduce the chance of embers building up underneath the home. While carefully designed, this dwelling is the archetypal Australian holiday home with flexible, casual spaces perfect for beachside family get-togethers.

A new townhouse project at Brightwater opens its doors to buyers and investors.

S

hine is the latest townhouse project at Stockland’s Brightwater Estate and this weekend prospective buyers have the opportunity to come and check it out for themselves. Due to commence construction soon, the development should be completed by 2013 and will feature 74 three-bedroom, two-bedroom townhouses. Buyers have a choice of floor plans and each home features two living areas, quality fittings such as stone benchtops and secure parking. Investor Property director Mal Cayley says, “With prices starting at $339,900, it’s the most affordable housing at Brightwater and we are also offering the first 15 investors an initial rent of $400 per week. Shine on Brightwater has everything an owner-occupier or investor could

books

want. It’s a stone’s throw from the new playground and community lake, and a short walk to the brand-new Brightwater State School, the proposed local shopping centre and tavern.” Residents at Shine also have easy access to Kawana’s 10 kilometres of beach, Stockland Park’s sporting precinct and the burgeoning multibillion-dollar medical precinct, which is underway at Birtinya. Investor Property is holding a Shine Fair from 10am to 1pm this Saturday where families, investors and first-home buyers can come and meet the Investor team and view this exciting new project. There will be lots of activities for the kids and prizes to be won. For more information call 1800 248 911.

Taking charge of taxes WORDS MICHAEL MATUSIK

I

t has been put to me that Queensland buyers are deferring signing contracts until after the state election on March 24, as they expect a change in government, and the LNP has promised to reinstate the stamp duty concession on owner-resident property. Here is my response. Firstly, something seriously needs to be done about the taxes and charges on property transactions and development in this country. When factoring in both buyer and seller costs, Australia has the fourth highest property taxes in the world at just under 14 per cent of the property’s value. Only Belgium, France and Greece are higher. Total property taxes average around eight per cent across the western world and are less than five per cent in the US, New Zealand and the UK. If we are going to keep stamp

duty on property sales, at least we can make it uniform across the country. An investor paying the median price for a property in each state/territory can pay between $10,000 and $27,000 in stamp duties, depending on location. The same applies for owner-residents and fluctuations for first-home buyers, which are the greatest of all, with first-timers in Queensland, Western Australia and Northern Territory paying virtually nothing at all, while the transfer duty for first-timers can be as high as $23,000 for an average-priced home in Melbourne and close to $21,000 in Canberra. Secondly, despite the increase – which is about $8000 on average – Queensland still has the cheapest stamp duties on established property across the country. Thirdly, the increase has not

stopped the market much at all – some real estate agents say it has – but the real factor is the number of resales on the market across South-East Queensland and the amount of choice buyers have, and hence the amount of discounting vendors need to do to make a sale. The timing of the increase – June 2011 – wasn’t great. It gave buyers more bargaining power, but again, its impact on sales volumes last year wasn’t that great. Sales are picking up now and have been doing so from about late October last year. Yet the higher stamp duties still apply. If the market was rising last year it wouldn’t have even been noticed. The proof is regional Queensland – it has had little to no impact in places like Townsville, Mackay and Gladstone. Yet some buyers might be now deferring buying until after the election to avoid paying higher stamp duties. This illustrates how government intervention distorts the market – in ways such as the boosts, first-home buyer grants and concessions. And finally, instead of reinstating the stamp duty concession for owner-residents buying established property in Queensland, the successful party should remove stamp duty from off-the-plan transactions. The impact – as shown in both Victoria and more recently NSW – should be immediate and very positive. Our work for the Property Council of Australia late last year found that removing stamp duty

from off-the-plan sales is likely to increase new housing starts across the state by between 10 and 15 per cent per annum. Yes, every year! In contrast to established homes, stamp duty on new dwellings across Queensland is high when compared with NSW and Victoria. Queensland needs a competitive advantage. The state’s competition is NSW and Victoria, and dropping stamp duty for off-the-plan purchases will help get Queensland back to a more level playing field. It is sad that such an important issue as this one is buried in the political charade. I truly believe that governance is too important to be left in the hands of the public at large. One of the major reasons we get served up such political (and policy) nonsense is that it must appeal to the lowest common denominator. Instead of having leaders with gravitas and policy for the greater good, we have celebrities (and poor ones at that) and pork-barrelling. Removing compulsory voting would be a step in the right direction. Michael Matusik is the director of independent property advisory Matusik Property Insights.

hinterland

Base camp

A

t the base of Mount Cooroora in the Noosa hinterland, Pomona is one of our most northern hinterland towns. Built on the timber industry and dairy farms, the town was originally called Pinbarren Siding. It got its new name in 1906, after Pomona, the Roman goddess of orchards and fruit. Home to the Gubbi Gubbi people for thousands of years, Europeans first settled in Pomona in the late 1880s and the railway opened soon after, in 1891. The town became the administrative centre of the Noosa Shire in 1909 and Noosa Shire Council remained based there until 1980, when it moved to Tewantin. The old council building now houses the Cooroora Historical Society and Noosa Museum. Pomona has remained a quiet country town with a main shopping street, a pub and primary school. It also has a high school for years eight and nine as a campus of Noosa District High in Cooroy. The town’s most significant building, though, is the Majestic Theatre, which opened in 1921 and, as the world’s only continuously operating silent movie theatre, continues to attract audiences from far afield. Pomona is also known for its relaxed streetscape with distinctive buildings, plus the King of the Mountain race up Mount Cooroora. The township was first bypassed by the Bruce Highway, but then this was circumvented by the Cooroy bypass, so that it is now quietly tucked away in the Noosa hinterland. The 6897-hectare

PHOTO: TOURISM NOOSA

MPP heads north, into the Noosa hinterland to the township of Pomona.

Pomona has remained a quiet country town with a main shopping street, a pub and primary school Pomona statistical district had a population density of 0.38 per hectare at the 2006 census. Pomona is a pleasant rural town with the infrastructure that comes with age, including a showground, hall and bowls club. Most of the original town blocks are a generous 1000 square metres and there are still original Queenslanders among the newer homes. In the surrounding district, acreages range from five to 120 acres upwards. It is affordable for young families to enjoy country life not too far from the coast.

The town is named after a Roman goddess

The race is on

P

omona’s King of the Mountain race will be held on Sunday July 22. It starts in the centre of town, before runners head into the bush and towards the mountain. In places the trail is little more than a goat track with steep climbs. The trip down is just as challenging, requiring strength, agility and a sense of balance. Queenslander Graham Baralett set

the record of 22 minutes, 50 seconds in 1987, but the 2009 winner Neil Labinsky finally broke it with a time of 22 minutes, 43 seconds. The race has seven categories including men’s and women’s opens and junior boys and girls. If you think you can handle this year’s event, head to kingofthemountain.com.au.
