Last week Australia’s Reserve Bank surprised the market by cutting the cash rate by a 25 basis points. Real estate investment coach, Rick Otton, welcomed the move, but said low interest rates alone are not enough to help more people become home owners.

The decision by the Reserve Bank will certainly help those who already have bank home loans, and by continuing to make repayments at their current level, they may be able to pay off their loans faster, or have something in reserve for leaner times.

Australia’s Reserve Bank surprised all pundits last week by cutting the country’s official cash rate by 25 basis points, a move which took the rate to 2.75 per cent - a record low. While property investment expert Rick Otton applauds the decision, he has revealed that lower interest rates alone are not enough to get many people into their own homes.

“The decision by the Reserve Bank will certainly help those who already have bank home loans, and by continuing to make repayments at their current level, they may be able to pay off their loans faster, or have something in reserve for leaner times” said Mr Otton.

But the interest rate cut does little for those people who are not already in the market, particularly those who are unable to meet the requirements for a bank loan.

“To the everyday Australians who are refused bank loans for whatever reason, lower interest rates mean nothing” explained Mr Otton. “And there is an increasing number of these people who aspire to home ownership but who feel locked into a challenging rental market.”

For these people, Mr Otton has developed a range of strategies to help them get into their own homes. Mr Otton has developed and used these techniques for decades in his We Buy Houses business, and they are the subject of his real estate book “How To Buy A House For A Dollar”, which has been named as one of the ‘Top 10 Most Popular Finance Titles for 2013’.

“My property investment strategies do not involve approaching banks for a home loan. Rather, they are designed to bring motivated sellers and buyers together under conditions that are acceptable and manageable for both” continued Mr Otton.

“They are enabling the self-employed, those without a hefty deposit, and people with a question mark over their credit history, to enter a real estate market that bank requirements lock them out of.”

Mr Otton is scheduling a series of one day free seminars to explain how everyday Australians can become property investors, dates to be announced. In the meantime, he has made available a free-to-download Power Property Profits Pack at http://www.HowToBuyAHouseForADollar.com
