Watch today's Sunshine Coast City RealEstate and Property Show

Ten years ago, my friends would be able to tell you that the information contained in this video was prophecy, now it is history. This video is from November 2007. How things have changed. And just this week, Beijing Olympics and Russia goes to war with America's friend, Georgia. The good news from this weeks Sunshine Coast City RealEstate and Property Show was the confirmation that rumors of official Interest rate drops are very possible next meeting! The Video following is very well worth watching, as it confirmed to me that I am doing he right thing by sharing the types of community George Green describes, but in Australia. Mooloolah Valley is a prime location not only on the Sunshine Coast but in all of Australia to become easily self-sustained. Descendants of the first settlers to the region still are! You can too. Realway Mooloolah Valley.

Land tax relief package from 1 July 2008 (Source)
The 2008-09 State Budget revised the land tax schedules which take effect from 1 July 2008.
The current $600,000 threshold, the highest of any state, will be maintained, with the tax payable at the threshold to be reduced from $1,200 to $500.

The new land tax schedule for companies, trustees and absentees will result in approximately 17,500 companies, trustees and absentees with taxable land holdings valued at up to $750,000 (after averaging and capping) being better off as a result of the change. The current $350,000 threshold, which is already competitive, will be maintained, with the tax payable at the threshold reduced from $2,250 to $1,450.

* extending the transfer duty home concession to retirement village residents who adopt lease and sub-lease occupancy arrangements
* providing a land tax exemption for aged care facilities, operating under the Commonwealth’s Aged Care Act (1997). This exemption will complement the existing exemption for retirement villages
