Holiday destinations in Queensland have topped a list of suburbs where investors are likely to receive the highest income from an investment property.One-bedroom units in Cairns, Miami, Port Douglas and Noosaville make the top ten list of suburbs with the highest rental yields, realestate.com.au/Invest data shows.Caboolture, a satellite city in southeast Queensland, has the highest average rental yield in the country at 15.2%. Caboolture has a 15.2% rental yield, according to realestate.com.au/Invest.*Sunny Caboolture a new haven for investors?Professionals Caboolture Real Estate Principal Leigh Chippendale says she’s not surprised to see Caboolture stacking up decent rental returns for investors, but its prospects haven’t always been so bright.“Throughout the GFC we had to ask our landlords to drop rent or keep rent the same,” Chippendale says.“Now we’re able to increase rent, and we feel justified in doing so, where as a few years back that wasn’t the case.”Southeast spotlight: What’s inside the Golden Triangle?Chippendale says it’s mostly ‘mum and dad’ investors dominating the Caboolture investor market these days. “They’re starting to feel confident again. In the last three months we’ve started to get interstate investors back too,” she says.“As long as the figures match up with the returns they expect, they’re happy to buy sight unseen.“We’re also starting to see purchaser’s agents – that’s usually a sign of groups of investors becoming more confident of the market.”‘Mum and dad’ investors tighten their foothold on the Caboolture market.Chippendale says the Caboolture property market is pretty typical of most of Australia – probably about a third of housing is investor-owned.“Demographics are quite mixed – retirees, down-sizers, up-graders, couples in their 20s just starting out and a diverse range of working skills.“From an investment point of view, you know you can buy a good quality home in Caboolture for a reasonable price with good rental returns.“You have all the facilities here for people who wish to live here and rent your property. The area continues to grow – we have good private and public schools, good medical facilities, a community hub that offers a great library, arts and educational facilities.“It’s a great place to live … you’re only half an hour from the beaches, 45 minutes from the hinterland, and 30 minutes from the Brisbane CBD.“Plus, the weather’s good.”A range of commercial opportunities are attracting renters to Caboolture.What is rental yield?Rental yield is an important factor for investors to consider because it will indicate the future income an asset is likely to make.Rental yield is the rate of income return over the cost associated with an investment. There are two types of rental yield, which are calculated a little differently: gross rental yield and net rental yield.The suburb rental yield represented in these results uses the calculation for gross rental yield, which is annual rental income, divided by the property value and expressed as a percentage.Find out more: What is yield?To get the suburb rental yield, we’ve used the median advertised rent as a percentage of median price, based on the number of property rentals and property sales in the past 12 months. The data looks specifically at one and two-bedroom units.It’s important to note that gross rental yield does not take into account the known or estimated property costs and ongoing expenses that will affect a property’s value, such as stamp duty, legal fees, council rates and building and pest inspections.To calculate a more precise prediction of rental return, you would need to estimate these costs and deduct them from the annual rental income to get the net rental yield.Investor consideration: Capital gain vs. cash flowNational Top 10 suburbs with the highest rental yieldListed by suburb, state, bedroom configuration and gross rental yield.

The workshop will include presentations on the Argentina Plan Nacer experience, Belize Pay for Performance program, and Burundi’s Performance Based Financing approach. Participants will also engage in group work and case study discussions to raise challenges and opportunities for RBF approaches in Dominica’s health sector.In support of the RBF workshop and to provide the World Bank team with a better understanding of the challenges faced at the different health service delivery levels in Dominica, the Ministry of Health organized site visits for the World Bank team to visit the Princess Margaret Hospital and Type I and Type III Health Centres throughout Dominica. The workshop is the first activity of the RBF program and will be followed by a situational analysis to further explore how to effectively apply RBF approaches in the health sector. It will also include study tours visits to countries implementing good practice RBF approaches relevant to Dominica’s context, and the development of a country work plan to support further exploring an RBF approach for the health sector. Meanwhile a World Bank Mission team led by Carmen Carpio, Health Specialist, arrived in Dominica on January 23, 2012 to provide technical assistance in support of the Dominica health sector. The mission will consist of two main activities which include discussing and exploring opportunities for results-based financing (RBF) approaches in Dominica’s health sector and assessing the Health Information System. Results-Based Financing (RBF) for Health is a tool used for increasing the quantity and quality of health services. It combines the use of incentives for health-related behaviours with a strong focus on results, and can support efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).A follow-on visit by the World Bank team will take place in February to focus on the health information system (HIS). This visit will build on the RBF workshop and assess the stage of development of the HIS and identify opportunities for supporting potential RBF approaches and regional reporting on common health indicators across the OECS.

Southampton appointed Gareth Rogers as interim chief executive officer on Wednesday as owner Katharina Liebherr declared her intention to stabilise the club after a torrid week off the field. “I am delighted that Gareth has agreed to step into this role,” she said. “After the events of the past week, my priority has been to bring stability to the management of the club and I am pleased that we have been able to make this appointment from within. “We had a very positive meeting with all the staff of the club on Monday and I am sure Gareth’s appointment will be warmly received.” Rogers, who has been with Southampton since 2011, also declared his delight at taking up the role. “I am very pleased to be able help the club by stepping up to the CEO’s job on an interim basis,” he said. “We have a fantastic staff and everyone is working together to make sure the club ends the season as strongly as possible.” With a replacement for Cortese in place and assurances from Pochettino that he does not intend to step down, Liebherr again insisted she does not want to sell any of Southampton’s key talent. “Having inherited Southampton Football Club following my father’s untimely passing, I am delighted and proud of the exhilarating period of success that the team and the staff has enjoyed these past few years, buoyed by the unstinting support of the fans,” she continued. “I am absolutely committed to ensuring that the club continues this success. I have met our manager Mauricio Pochettino and have given him my complete support to build on the good work that has already been achieved. “We have also said that we have no plans to sell any of the squad during the January transfer window. Yesterday I met the rest of the staff and gave them the same message of support.” Given the news that injured duo Gaston Ramirez and Dejan Lovren both suffered ankle ligament damage in the 2-2 draw with Sunderland, it may be that Pochettino will be requesting funds to add to his squad during January, rather than having the threat of losing players such as Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw to their rivals. Press Association Nicola Cortese resigned as chief executive last week, with Liebherr becoming non-executive chairman, leading to speculation that manager Mauricio Pochettino and several key players could follow the influential Italian out of St Mary’s. But Liebherr has once again moved to quash such suggestions, insisting the appointment of Rogers – who already worked for Saints as their chief financial officer – will benefit everyone at the club.
