Rick Otton, the author of the best-selling finance book How To Buy A House For A Dollar, shows Aussies the easy way to buy a house without sacrificing family time and comfort in order to save up for a large home deposit.
The 2013 Mortgage Choice Future First Homebuyer Survey found that a quarter of future first home buyers in Australia are saving 10 percent of their monthly salaries for a home deposit. According to a report from Australian Property Investor last 9 October 2013, 83 percent out of the 1000 respondents are willing to sacrifice their current lifestyle, while 24 percent say that they can delay having children to raise enough money for a deposit.
“Problems like these are the reason why creative real estate strategies were created, so that people will realize that there is an easier way of doing things. Homeownership shouldn’t be about making sacrifices, but about the benefits you get out of having a property of your own,” Mr. Otton said for an in-depth interview.
“For struggling home buyers, vendor or seller financing, creative strategies can help them get into a house of their own without sacrificing their lifestyle of personal goals just to save up a large amount of deposit,” he explained.
Mr. Otton then explained that vendor finance has three components: the money down, the period when you will have to finish making payments, and the periodical payments.
“This used to be the standard process for buying a house in Australia right up to the early 70s, but it fell out of vogue when the banks made the bank lending process very easy, it almost felt like the banks were throwing money at everybody,” Mr. Otton shared.
“The good times, however, ended after the global financial crisis. The banks have lesser money to lend, and saving up become harder for home buyers because property prices rose faster than ever, while monthly salaries stayed the same,” he added.
“Homebuyers should start to realize that the road to homeownership is not a one way street, and it might take them a long time to reach their dream if they don’t use their savings creatively,” he said.
