'My husband and I are relocating from Nhulunbuy to Darwin, and wanted to buy a new home to live in. Due to work commitments and distance, we knew it was going to be a challenge. Also the market was moving and we wanted to give ourselves the best opportunities and not miss properties that matched our needs. We engaged Tod Peterson from Peterson's Property Search. Through Tod's knowledge of the local market, along with his contacts and experience in the industry, he performed a full search and due diligence for us. We were working to a budget, and for the location and condition we wanted there weren't a lot of suitable properties available. Two were very good, but initially just above our budget. In saying that, we did find one that was good and were able to reduce the price substantially. To our surprise, half way through negotiations a property we really did love, but was too expensive, became available at our budget. The house was perfect and in a great location. And it also attracted a lot of interest.
Tod suggested we go for this as he knew it was a better quality house that offered something special, and would make more equity instead of the initial purchase. Through Tod's help we were able to successfully secure the property without entering a bidding war against other competitive buyers. With Tod's due diligence, he steered us in the right direction with legals and different inspectors to make sure it was going to be a safe purchase.
If you are thinking of buying into the Darwin market but are unsure what is involved or concerned that you will not be treated fairly along the way, and you want to save yourself time and money, I can highly recommend Tod Peterson to represent you...’ – Margot and Mick
