Rather than demand the buyer to pay everything all at once, sellers offer them flexibility on they can pay for the entire price tag on the house within an agreed period.

The Building Society Nationwide found that UK property prices rose 8.4 percent in 2013, which brought the median house price in the country to £175,826.

The study explained that steep price hikes in London influenced the national average and it added that average Londoners would have to come up with £345,186 in order to secure a house in the capital, ([ reported on 6 January 2014)

“Some people are also saying that the rapid increase in house prices are caused by high demand and low supply in housing across the country,” shared Rick Otton, the leader in buying and selling houses creatively,

“But no matter the cause, there’s still hope for many families struggling to save for a deposit. Buying a house is still very possible with the help of creative strategies if this trend will continue on to 2014,” he added.

Mr. Otton then discussed that creative strategies can help UK residents get a house without applying for new mortgages or a paying a large amount of deposit through vendor financing.

“Vendor financing helps people who don’t have a lot of cash to buy a home because the seller, himself, finances the buyer into the house he’s selling. Rather than demand the buyer to pay everything all at once, sellers offer them flexibility on they can pay for the entire price tag on the house within an agreed period,” he said.

“This kind of setup, however, does not put the seller in the losing end. Because of the convenience of flexible terms, it makes it easier for the buyer to meet the seller’s price. It’s like hitting 2 birds with 1 stone when you think about it. Sellers don’t have to haggle with buyers just to sell houses, while buyers don’t end up waiting for a few years just to get enough cash for a deposit,” he discussed further.
