About Dominique

I purchased my first distressed property in my early 20s.

At the time I had no idea what I was doing. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time, and the deal of the decade fell in my lap.

When I was ready to invest in a second property, I naturally wanted to find another great discounted property deal.

Of course sellers don’t advertise their properties as “distressed” or “below market.”

And the few “deceased estate,” “divorce,” or “mortgagee” sales I found were already out there, and every Tom, Dick and Harry was buzzing around them in a lather and bumping up the price rather than offering me any discount.

I also discovered that there is no education curriculum to teach you the ropes on how to locate, buy and, sell distressed properties in Australia.

So drawing on my legal expertise, as a lawyer specialising in debt, I developed a repeatable 3 step process for investing in distressed properties in Australia.

What Are These 3 Strategies To Profit
From Small Residential Developments?

Strategy #1 :DA Uplift

One common misconception is that to make from property development you need to build. But that’s not true.

Builders need ongoing projects to keep their workers employed and are on the constant lookout for ready to build sites to save time and holding costs.

This opens the door to acquiring property, obtaining development approvals and then on-selling it to builders for a tidy profit.

In fact, a subdivision is one of the most effective small development strategies... and you don’t even have to wear a hard hat.

For example, the Queensland property pictured above was purchased for $820K.

After acquiring development approval, the investors are can now sell the property for a projected profit of $500,000. If they build the townhouses themselves the projected profit is $2.5 million.

Strategy #2 : Sub-Division

When you subdivide one property into many, you can add significant value.

You then have the option to hold the lots and wait for more uplift, build on the vacant lots and/or sell one of the properties.

The deceased estate in Stafford, Qld was on the market for $500k. The investors snapped up the property and split the title. They are set to make $100,000 profit without lifting a brick.

Strategy #3: Residential Unit Development

If you willing to put in the extra work, then residential unit development is a fantastic way to grow your wealth.

This strategy has a potentially lower financial requirement compared to commercial, industrial or retail development.

You won’t make millions from your first development. But it’s still a fast and effective way to become financially independent.

For example, one of my students is bulldozing this property at The Entrance, NSW. The plan is to build townhouses. The potential profit on this deal is about $582,000.

What Makes Property Developing The Best Strategy In Today’s Market

  • Manufacture equity independent of what the market is doing.
  • Complete your projects at 20% or more below market value by buying wholesale.
  • Claim depreciation and tax benefits from developing a property.
  • Find partners who’ll finance the land purchase and development costs in this tighter lending landscape.
  • Manage your project in just a few hours a week.

Investors Just Like You Are Using These Strategies To Succeed

Using what we learnt, we bought a block of land under market value in a high growth area, and are looking to do a sub-division and two houses… We hired a builder to obtain the DA's and manage the project on our behalf. We’re half way through the development now with a projected profit of $400,000. We’re already looking for our next property.

Alanah and Rob, New South Wales

I did Dominique’s course in 2014. I now have 5 projects on the go totaling around $1.8 million. Some are with money partners, others I am doing myself… I think property development is the easiest investment to do. You just find the deal and get other people to do the work, then phone in once a week to get updates… we are looking at roughly $700,000 in returns.
