'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
