The Last Land in Noosa Heads   Alex Harris - Noosa 4 Sale 28-Feb-2018

History shows us that lifestyle locations are the ones that come back strongest after any kind of downturn. Because what made them desirable in the first place remains. That is the case with Noosa. Prices today are strong and rising. It is a very different market to what it was just a few short years ago.

The Last Land in Noosa Heads

Alex Harris - Noosa 4 Sale  
Over the past 5 years I have encountered a marked change in the manner in which wealthy investors have created their wealth, invested it and now protected it from all and sundry. This may be a result of their own divorce and re-marriage, or that of their adult children but the pattern has been the same.

Competitive Company Culture to Keep Discoveries Coming

Wally Graham - Resources Roadhouse  
With fully-funded construction underway to mine Australia's most recent greenfields gold discovery, it would be tempting for a junior gold explorer to become complacent. However, having made its big, company making, Gruyere gold discovery Gold Road Resources (ASX: GOR) is determined to create a company culture that ensures discovery of such deposits keeps coming.
Who would have thought that a 1977 Holden Torana would be worth $260,000?
Recently at a Brisbane car auction a 1977 A9X sold for that amount, with those present saying that it will be worth even more next year, that's based on the fact
that rare and exotic vehicle prices have risen nearly 20% per year for the last 10 years.

While it may have been led by lithium, and more recently, cobalt, it is also impact the more common base metals like copper, nickel, aluminium, zinc and tin.

Drilling and testing in 2018 could drive a multi‐fold re‐rating.
