The Queensland town for sale for less than the price of the average home in Sydney remains on the market for offers over $750,000.Reports over the weekend suggested the town was under contract, but Julie Sutton, Principal with Sutton Nationwide Realty Gin Gin, tells realestate.com.au that the contract did not go ahead and the property is now back on the market.The tiny town of Allies Creek in Monogorilby, located over 200km north-west of Brisbane includes 16 homes, a water treatment plant, a mill and a dam with a pontoon and it is still for sale.“It’s such a bargain, that’s the thing,” Sutton says.The current owner had reduced the price to $750,000 — some $30,000 less than you would pay for a house in Sydney – but Sutton insists offers now need to be above that price.According to CoreLogic RP Data, the median sale price for a home in Sydney in April was $780,000.This is one of 16 houses included in the sale of the town.Allies Creek in Monogorilby has been owned and operated for years by an unnamed married couple, with the passing of one partner resulting in the other looking to move on.The remaining owner is “a bit overwhelmed” at all the media attention the town has generated in the past week, Sutton says.But Allies Creek is an “extremely profitable” business.“It has commercial rent as well we residential…the possibilities are endless. It could hold fantastic music festivals, it could be for groups that have large camp outs, it could be for a Scout club or group to own, it could possibly be set up as a caravan site. It’s just endless what you could do with this place,” she says.Italian dream: A look at the Tuscan village for sale for €40mA look at some of the machinery included in the sale.Some of the town’s 16 houses – made up of two, three and four bedroom properties – are currently tenanted.That small population is likely to soon grow.“There would be a minimum of six, seven houses rented out at this stage. But with new fruit pickers coming into the area that have just been moved there, over 300 of them, that could be changing, obviously,” she says.Video: Town for saleVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 2:32Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -2:32 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels360p360p240p240pAutoA, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Two-out RBI hits by Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford in the first inning spotted Greinke a 3-0 lead before he threw a pitch. But Greinke gave the lead right back by allowing five runs, including three on a home run by Domonic Brown. It was the most runs Greinke had allowed in an inning this season — or in any of his first 21 starts.“Just a lot of not-good stuff,” he said. “The home run (by Brown) allowed me to reset. Guys on base, you have to make really good pitches. After the homer I reset things. That helped.”Adrian Gonzalez hit a three-run home run in the second inning to give the Dodgers a 6-5 lead. After Greinke’s homer in the third, the offensive onslaught slowed down. A two-run double by Howie Kendrick in the sixth inning, followed by a Yasmani Grandal sacrifice fly, gave the Dodgers three insurance runs.Greinke managed to last six innings and throw 111 pitches before turning the game over to the bullpen. “It could have been” a disaster, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said, “but Zack’s one of those guys who’s going to keep pitching and not give in.”The Phillies tacked on a pair of runs in the ninth inning against the Dodger bullpen, both charged to Joel Peralta, before Kenley Jansen recorded the final two outs on one swing of the bat. Brown stroked a one-out line drive into Gonzalez’s glove with runners on first and third base, and Gonzalez touched first base for a double play. Jansen was credited with his 21st save.Kendrick, Gonzalez and Ethier each had two of the Dodgers’ 15 hits. After leaving 12 runners on base in each of the first two games of the series, the Dodgers went 5 for 10 with runners in scoring position Thursday, stranding only six runners.The Dodgers took two of the three games from the Phillies, temporarily pushing their lead in the National League West to 2 1/2 games.Without Greinke, who knows where the Dodgers would be.“He’s obviously been really, really good,” Mattingly said. “He’s having a season similar to Clayton’s last year, where pretty much every time out he’s just been dominant. You count on him for 7 to 8 innings. He’s been giving you that. He’s not giving up runs. It’s been similar.” PHILADELPHIA >> When building Clayton Kershaw’s case for the 2014 National League Most Valuable Player award, observers had to reach back 46 years to find any precedent. That’s how long it had been since an NL pitcher claimed the award before Kershaw.In that regard Kershaw’s case was, well, a reach.One intriguing number: Kershaw was so good at keeping hitters off base that he actually got on base more often than opposing hitters — 23.5 percent of the time for Kershaw compared to 23.1 for his opponents. His once-in-a-generation pitching statistics spoke for themselves, and Kershaw won the award handily.At this rate, building Zack Greinke’s MVP case might be easier by comparison. Even after allowing six earned runs in the Dodgers’ 10-8 win Thursday over the Philadelphia Phillies, Greinke (11-2) has a lower earned-run average than Kershaw posted last year, 1.71 to 1.77.“He’ll get it down back to 1.3 after a couple starts,” Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal said.There are certainly other statistics that should factor into the equation, but here’s one worth keeping an eye on: Greinke is reaching base 23.1 percent of the time, compared to 23.4 percent for opponents.Greinke’s hitting ability bore mention on a day when he became the first Dodgers pitcher to go 3 for 3 with a home run since 1923. His 395-foot solo shot off Phillies starter David Buchanan (2-6) was his first since September of last year, and the fifth of his career.The home run gave the Dodgers a 7-5 lead in the third inning, a big run on the heels of a disastrous start.
