'We Secured A Three Bedroom Apartment With Superior Features - Ideal For A Corporate Rental...!'

‘I was interested in acquiring an investment property in Darwin as I had heard the returns were extremely good and the prognosis for Darwin as a growth area is excellent. Not having time or sufficient local knowledge to research the area properly, I engaged Tod Peterson, Director of PPS, as our advocate. Tod was thorough in his approach, made us aware of a number of options, and kept us fully informed and appraised throughout the entire search, selection, recommendation, and acquisition process. The end result was that we secured a good three bedroom apartment which had superior features where we could set it up as a corporate rental and receive (at least initially) $1,200 per week – a return in excess of 10%. I thus have no hesitation in recommending Tod Peterson as your buyer's advocate, particularly should you be interstate!’ – David

'It Was Exceptionally Helpful To Receive Tod's First-Hand Experience Of Living In Darwin and Advice...!'

'We would like to thank the team at Peterson's Property Search for their dedication and support in helping us find and purchase a home in Darwin. From the time of our initial enquiry through to the purchase of our Darwin home, the service we received was extremely professional.

Throughout the process, Tod kept us up to date on how the search was progressing via regular email and telephone communication. We particularly appreciated that Tod gave up his weekend to personally show us a range of properties in a variety of Darwin suburbs. By the end of the weekend, we felt that we had explored the Darwin housing styles and suburbs that were within our budget. Also whilst in Darwin, Tod introduced us to a construction company that was able to assist us in assessing the merit of purchasing an unrenovated as opposed to a renovated property.

It was exceptionally helpful to receive Tod's first-hand experience of living in Darwin and advice regarding the housing market. It was obvious that Tod was passionate about his job and committed to helping us find the right home for our family.

We would not hesitate in recommending Peterson's Property Search to anyone looking to purchase property in Darwin.' - Natasha and Damien

'Tod's Local Knowledge And Network Of Contacts Put Me In The Right Position To Purchase...!'

'I was interested in purchasing an investment property in Darwin, as a colleague of mine had previously done through Tod Peterson of Peterson's Property Search - his outcome was a success. I was looking at something with good growth and a return of 10%. Tod suggested we look at apartments that had something special, such as a good location, water views, a good block, etc. Our aim was to secure corporate rentals to maximise rental returns.

After evaluating the market, we found a reasonably new apartment and also saved a good amount of money off the market price as well. This was a welcome surprise as other units in the block of a similar style were selling above what we had paid. We are now in the process of setting the unit up as a corporate rental, which will offer a net yield of over 10%. The whole process was extremely educational, and Tod's local knowledge and network of contacts put me in the right position, which would have been difficult otherwise. I have no hesitation in recommending Tod Peterson as your buyer's advocate.' - Hendrik and Brony
