While it’s true that housing prices, particularly in London, are surging, it is often fear mongering on the part of industry experts who say that families could be priced out of the housing market.
(PRWEB) September 26, 2013
Real estate strategist, Rick Otton, has challenged warnings from The Institute of Directors, a leading economic think-tank, that a housing pricing cap could damage the property sector. Mr Otton has instead urged that UK property investors achieve long term wealth by ignoring trend-of-the-moment expert advice altogether.
The Institute of Directors says calls by industry bodies on the Bank of England to step in and limit house prices to avoid a boom-and-bust housing cycle would have a disastrous effect.
Graeme Leach, Chief Economist at the Institute of Directors, said: “The Government is already subsidising mortgages in an effort to stimulate demand, and if the Bank of England were to step in and limit house price increases then the state would be pressing the brake and the accelerator at the same time. The most effective intervention government can make in the housing market is to liberalise the planning system and make it far, far easier for homes to be built.”
Mr Otton, an Australian bestselling author and real estate educator who regularly hosts ultimate wealth summits in the UK at which he shares his property millionaire secrets, said the obsession over housing prices was reaching a tipping point.
“While it’s true that housing prices, particularly in London, are surging, it is often fear mongering on the part of industry experts who say that families could be priced out of the housing market,” Mr Otton said.
Unique property deals
Mr Otton said while only time would tell whether or not a housing bubble would develop, it was essential for all Britons to understand that there were proven ways to invest in property with no deposit whatsoever.
“Over the years, I’ve shown scores of students how to buy a house even with no cash, credit or real estate experience,” he said.
“Using my no-money-down and easy-to-copy unique property investing strategies, my students have learnt how to generate growth and cash flow while building up a multiple property portfolio.”
Mr Otton said anyone interested in his techniques could download his free Power Property Profits Pack on his website RickOtton.co.uk.
The pack includes four components: a DVD on how to buy a house without a bank, student tips to getting started in the property game, a cheat sheet on ways to buy property at a discount, and a report set on bargains, cash flow versus capital and student renovation secrets.
