Rick Otton, the innovative mind behind creative real estate strategies in Australia, warns renovators on the hidden dangers of renovating, and urges them to try safer ways of going into property investment which do not post any health risks.
The Medical Journal of Australia recently found that six out of ten do-it-yourself renovators have been exposed to asbestos, but only 15 percent use protective gear when doing renovation projects.
According to a report from News.com.au published on 20 September 2013, asbestos had been banned in Australia in the 1970s, and it has been identified as a cause of a malignant mesothelioma after years of exposure.
“You don’t have to expose yourself to harmful minerals like asbestos or even lift a hammer just to make a profit out of renovations with the help of the ‘Handyman special.’ This strategy gives you the freedom to find someone who has the skills to renovate a home and partner up with him to make a profitable deal out of a damaged property,” Mr. Otton said.
“The perfect partners for these kinds of deals are skilled workers who don’t have enough deposit to get a property of their own, and instead of letting them pay in cash you just use the manual labour they will put in the property as sweat equity,” he explained further.
“In the end, the ‘handyman’ you partnered with may end up with more profits, but what’s important is that you didn’t have to lift a finger just to make a profit out of a renovation project,” Mr. Otton explained.
“I came up with this strategy because, like most people, I love the benefit that comes from the profits of a renovation, but I don’t like the manual work and risks involved in doing the entire renovation myself. I’m sharing these solutions now to teach more people that there is an easier and safer way to profit from renovations, and potentially save lives in the process,” Mr. Otton shared.
