At the heart of every creative strategy is the concept of vendor finance. This is simply an arrangement which allows the buyer to make the payments within a certain period, but the seller gets a slightly higher price for his property in exchange.

Rick Otton, the pioneering mind behind creative property solutions, explains why more people are seeking creative and non-traditional ways when buying property.

A recent study by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority has revealed that major banks are slowly being overtaken by small lenders. The data, published by the Property Observer last 14 October 2013, shows that one in every six residential home loans in Australia are financed by non-major lenders.

“After the global financial crisis, the big banks have less money to lend to home buyers across the country, and as a result, a lot of home buyers were rejected when they applied for a loan. Aside from that, interest rates have gone up very fast in the past few years, buyers end up spending more than the actual price of the house they bought,” Mr. Otton explained in a recent interview for his Newscastle property event.

“With a stack of problems like this waiting for them with the traditional process, it’s not a surprise that more and more home buyers are looking for ways to buy real estate without the need for bank financing,” he shared.

During the interview, Mr. Otton shared the distinct difference of his investment property strategies from the traditional process, and how it has helped a lot of home buyers and property investors across the country.

“At the heart of every creative strategy is the concept of vendor finance. This is simply an arrangement which allows the buyer to make the payments within a certain period, but the seller gets a slightly higher price for his property in exchange,” Mr. Otton clarified.

“A popular strategy to pair this with is the Sandwich lease option. In this process, buyers don’t have to apply for a new home loan, because they can use the old debts which the sellers have on their property. Buyers simply replace the sellers in with the help of few paperwork,” he explained.
