During my one-day intensive ultimate real estate seminar, I’ll be teaching participants my easy-to-learn unconventional strategies on growth
Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
Real estate investment expert and strategist, Rick Otton, has announced seats are quickly selling out for the free-to-the-public ‘How to Buy a House for $1’ seminar he is hosting in Melbourne on April 6.
“During my one-day intensive ultimate real estate seminar, I’ll be teaching participants my easy-to-learn unconventional strategies on growth and cash flow, asset protection and how to purchase property without a deposit or bank finance,” Mr Otton said.
The event will also coach Victorian investors and renters on ways to successfully navigate the current rental crisis. Statistics recently released by researcher RP Data show that the number of suburbs where it’s cheaper to buy a home on a variable rate mortgage than to rent rose to 494 in December from 388 two months earlier.
Flurry of investment activity
Property investment analysts say investors are scrambling to snap up properties to capitalise on the lowest mortgage rates since 2009.
According to the Reserve Bank of Australia, Australian banks lowered discounted variable rates by 105 basis points in the past year to 5.65 per cent, the lowest since November 2009. Three-year fixed mortgage rates plunged 85 basis points to an average 5.45 per cent in the 12 months ended February 28, the lowest level since the central bank began collecting data in 1990.
Renters, on the other hand, are battling to pull together a deposit in the face of elevated house prices and watered down government incentives. This trend is reflected in the declining number of first-home buyers across Australia.
A win-win for all
Mr Otton said while it was certainly a prime time for investors to leap into action to make the most of rising rents and low vacancy rates, renters did not have to stay on the sidelines.
“Australians have fallen victim to a very traditional way of buying and selling property,” Mr Otton said.
“Contrary to public belief, there are proven ways to invest in property without with no deposit, banking finance or any real estate experience.
“When it comes to the rental situation in Melbourne, I will reveal to participants in my ‘How to Buy a House for $1’ seminar proven ways to get into the market with radical alternatives such as rent-to-buy options.”
