Limerick group demands action on housing

first_imgTwitter Limerick city house prices rise 4.9% as time to sell falls RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick county house prices to rise 5% in 2021 Facebook Mortgage payment break for local authority home loan borrowers will be extended by a further three months WhatsApp Linkedin ACTIVISTS took to the street of Limerick on Saturday, February 23, to protest over the growing housing crisis.The recently formed Limerick Housing Action (LHA) group organised a march that gathered at People’s Park and made its way to City Hall on Merchants Quay, where organisers and members of other action groups spoke to the crowd of almost fifty people.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Recent homeless figures have shown that more than 290 people were homeless in Limerick at the end of last year.A spokesperson for the group  said that for many people the housing crisis isn’t about statistics.“Long before the numbers are published in the papers and in the reports, or in the Dáil debates, we’ve already seen them. You’ve seen them on our streets in our homes and on the worried faces of our friends and family.”She said the movement was formed by a “group of concerned community members that came together” with a common goal of supporting those affected by the housing crisis and to “take collective action to demand change”.“I don’t think I’m being too dramatic when I say that probably everyone here is affected by this, the housing crisis or at least know someone who’s affected.”“By coming out today, you have shown that the people in Limerick aren’t going to take it any longer. Underneath it all, we know that there are only two types of people in the housing struggle – the people that profit from it,  and the people who suffer from it.“We also know that there is ultimately more of us than there is of them,” the spokeswoman explained.

Brisbane real estate: ‘Rightsizers’ want apartments as big as houses

first_imgMiles and Juanita Browning with their kids, Zac, 3, and Millie, 7, at their apartment in New Farm. Demand for three-bedroom, house-sized apartments is increasing among young people and families — not just retirees. Image: AAP/John Gass.APARTMENTS the size of an average house have replaced the white picket fence as the new Great Australian Dream thanks to a new breed of home buyers known as ‘rightsizers’. By 2022, Brisbane is forecast to have more three-bedroom apartments than any other city in the country, according to new research by Knight Frank.Entrepreneurs and young families are joining “active retirees” who want low-maintenance properties, with house-like proportions and top-shelf amenities.“Perhaps surprisingly, ‘right sizing’ also appeals to the younger generations, and we are seeing this at a much earlier stage than in previous years given the agile, transient and global nature of their work and play,” Knight Frank Australia’s head of residential research Michelle Ciesielski said. More buyers are wanting to live in large, luxury apartments like these in New Farm. Image: AAP/Attila Csaszar.“Downsizing the living areas is not part of this movement; the yard most certainly, but the new luxury apartment must be the right size, with amenities to match.“Rightsizers want to be in a walkable location with proximity to activity hubs and amenities.”When it comes to the apartment itself, ‘rightsizers’ want high security and a concierge for lock-up-and-leave convenience, a reputable developer and builder with certainty of delivery, single-level, in-house amenities, a good view and access to transport links.Knight Frank Queensland prestige residential sales director Jason March said the ‘rightsizing’ trend was growing in Brisbane, with an increase in demand from buyers looking to transition to well-appointed, luxury apartments. Apartment buildings are seen in the Brisbane suburb of South Brisbane. Image: AAP/Darren England.“This demand is coming from not only retirees, who are more active than ever, but increasingly from families and entrepreneurs,” Mr March said.“In Brisbane we see many retirees looking to relocate from sizeable homes in the northern suburbs such as Ascot, Clayfield and Bridgeman Downs to luxury apartments in well-located suburbs closer to the CBD including Newstead, Teneriffe and the CBD.”Mr March said that eastern suburbs’ retirees often migrated from Chandler and Balmoral to Bulimba, Kangaroo Point and Southbank, while western suburbs’ rightsizers from Chelmer, Pullenvale and Brookfield were more likely to be drawn to Toowong, West End and St Lucia. Suburbs like Newstead, Teneriffe and Brisbane CBD are sought-after by ‘rightsizers’. Image: AAP/Darren England.“Only recently has luxury apartment product been built in Brisbane to cater for this rightsizer population,” he said.“Brisbane developers are one of the first across the major Australian cities to respond to the increase in demand for three-bedroom apartments from rightsizers, being one of the only cities in Australia analysed in the research to have a strong supply. “Brisbane’s luxury apartment market provides great value, with southern buyers able to sell up in Melbourne or Sydney and buy something really special that suits all their requirements for right sizing at a much more affordable price. “That value proposition will likely change over time, so buying in the near term is key for rightsizers in Brisbane.” Three-bedroom apartments like this one in Prominence Residences are in demand in Brisbane.New research by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) has also found space remains important to Aussie buyers, with more than half moving to a home with three or more bedrooms and a third moving to an apartment.“Australian governments typically see downsizing, or rightsizing, as a way to use housing stock more efficiently, with downsizers reducing the number of bedrooms in their dwelling freeing up larger dwellings,” lead report author Dr Amity James from Curtin’s School of Economics, Finance and Property said.“However, most downsizers still want space and regard spare bedrooms as necessary in a dwelling.”A number of new developments are now catering for ‘rightsizers’ in Brisbane, including Prominence Residences in Kangaroo Point. Courtney Maguire and Simon Caulfield are part of the ‘rightsizer’ movement. Image: AAP/Josh Woning.Simon Caulfield of Place Kangaroo Point is marketing the full-floor apartments, which are priced from $3.4 million.“Our buyers are hyper local within the blue-chip, inner-city suburbs of Brisbane,” Mr Caulfield said.“Most are in larger homes, but their children are staying longer in their 20s and the benefit of the location is attractive without the maintenance of a large home.”And Mr Caulfield’s clients aren’t the only ones looking for luxury apartments with at least three bedrooms in prime suburbs. He and his wife, fellow real estate agent Courtney Maguire, have just bought a house-sized apartment in Banc in Toowong after selling their luxury, four-bedroom unit in Walan at 2 Scott St, Kangaroo Point, for $4.45 million.Over in New Farm, ‘rightsizers’ Miles and Juanita Browning are looking for a one-floor apartment after raising their two children, Zac, 3, and Millie, 7.in a house-sized apartment at Cutters Landing for the past six years. “We don’t have the time to do the garden and look after all the aspects you would with a normal sized house and land,” Mr Browning said.“We also don’t want to compromise on space and we want security, so the idea of one apartment on one level gives us both of those things.” Large, luxury apartments in the Cutters Landing building in New Farm are popular with ‘rightsizers’. Image: AAP/Attila Csaszar.Mr Browning, a physiotherapist, said they wanted to stay in New Farm because the suburb had enough outdoor facilities for children to need a backyard. “When we first moved in (to the building), we were the only ones with children,” he said.“All the apartments from our entry point now have kids on every level, ranging from a one-year-old, all the way through to young teenagers.“I think people are realising that they have busy jobs, they want their weekends for their kids and their family and not spent doing all the tasks you have to do to maintain a house.”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus10 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market10 hours agoBRISBANE’S MOST SOUGHT-AFTER ‘RIGHTSIZER’ SUBURBS1.
