Property Investment Strategist, Rick Otton

Investing in UK real estate does not have to be preserve of the wealthy, or those who have the hefty deposit needed to qualify for a mortgage.

Property investment authority, Rick Otton, has been teaching both experienced and aspiring UK investors innovative ways to buy and sell real estate without bank involvement. With the Bank of England forecasting a rise in interest rates in 2014, Mr Otton has decided to share some of his strategies - at no charge.

He has put together a Power Property Profits Pack and made it available as a no-charge download on his website

"At the heart of my strategies for investing in real estate is the knowledge that you don’t need to commit to being shackled to a bank loan for the next 30 years," explained Mr Otton. "When you are, you’re at the mercy of interest rate fluctuations, and this prediction from the Bank of England illustrates the fact. If people rush in to buy properties amid the hype of a ‘property boom’ they may find themselves in over their heads next year."

"While they may be able to meet the repayments now, this may not be the case in six months time, when cost of living increases kick in, job security is threatened or ill health impacts earning capacity."

Mr Otton’s comments were precipitated when Paul Fisher, member of the Bank of England’s interest rates committee indicated that rates could increase in the next 12 months.

In an interview on BBC Radio, Mr Fisher said: "If we get inflation on target at two per cent and economic growth at say 2.5 per cent, you might expect interest rates to be in the four to five per cent range."

Power Property Profits Pack

In creating his Power Property Profits Pack, and making it available as a download at no cost to the public, Mr Otton hopes to encourage UK property investors to open their minds to new ways of buying and selling real estate.

"Investing in UK real estate does not have to be preserve of the wealthy, or those who have the hefty deposit needed to qualify for a mortgage," he said. "The traditional mortgage model disenfranchises many people, particularly those who do not have that deposit, or who are self-employed and unable to substantiate regular income."
