“These are strong rental markets because they are family areas, which tend to attract long-term renters, while local defence force personnel, who operate from the nearby Robertson Barracks, also underpin the rental market,” he says, adding that Palmerston (and Darwin’s) rents are expected to ramp up this year.
“We haven’t seen an increase in median rents in quite a while, but we expect to see some significant hikes in 2012,” he says. “So now is a good time for investors to get their skates on.”
