Rick Otton, a leading mentor in property investment in Australia, is coming to Melbourne on 26 October 2013 to teach creative solutions for finding affordable Melbourne property in a livable yet expensive city.
The Economist Intelligence Unit recently hailed Melbourne as the world’s most livable city for a third year in a row.
A report from The Age on 29 August 2013, however, revealed that living in the world’s most liveable city comes at a high cost because Melbourne residents pay premium prices for basic necessities such as food, rent, and especially when it comes to Melbourne real estate.
“Expensive house prices are a problem, not only in Melbourne, but in many cities around the world, and a lot of people go around this problem with the help of creative property solutions,” said Mr. Otton in a recent interview.
“Creative real estate strategies are efficient tools in getting Melbourne property at a bargain price because it doesn’t focus the deal on the price but on the terms of payment on the house. In other words, it makes a house easy to buy instead of just dropping the price to make it seem affordable,” he explained further.
Mr. Otton then discussed that these flexible payment terms can be achieved with the help of different strategies.
“Instalment contracts is one of the basic strategies I teach to my students during my live seminars,” Mr. Otton shared. “I use a variation of this strategy called 10:10 when doing property deals. In 10:10, you have to pay the seller 10 percent more for the price of the house, but on the condition that the payment will be finished in 10 years.”
“It’s a great bargain for the buyer because instead of paying high interest rates he only gets to pay a portion of the agreed price, while sellers get delayed gratification to earn more from their property with a just a little bit of patience,” according to Mr. Otton.
“Melbourne should start living up to its name by making sure that the services and commodities offered to its residents are also affordable, but in the meantime those struggling to live in a ‘liveable’ city have creative strategies to help them get through,” he added.
