Real estate industry analysts are afraid that more homes in Melbourne will become out of reach for regular Aussies as real estate prices in 10 suburbs are expected to jump in 2014. But Rick Otton, Owner and Director of We Buy Houses, tell home buyers to stay calm as creative strategies can help people buy houses at any price range even with little cash on hand.

Creating flexible payment terms simply means giving buyers more flexibility on how they can purchase houses for sale.

“2013 has been a tough year for first home buyers because of the continuous rise house prices. This trend, however, will continue on this year, but home buyers shouldn’t worry too much since creative strategies can help them buy real estate whether the property market is down or not,” commented Rick Otton, a mentor of many real estate experts in Australia.

Real estate analysts predict an increase of home values in 10 Melbourne suburbs namely: Thomastown, Epping, Coburg, Thornbury, Yaraville, Newport, Ringwood, Glen Waverley, Highett, and Frankston.

Houses in the said suburbs currently have an average median price of $388,000 and industry analysts believe that it will jump into the $500,000 to $700,000 price range this 2014, ( reported on 3 January 2014).

“Aside from that fact that low interest rates are pushing house prices to go up, the growing demand for houses in the area due to its distance to the CBD and other lifestyle amenities is also contributing to the steady growth of home values,” said Mr. Otton in an interview for his Free Pack.

“Fortunately, home buyers don’t have to spend thousands of dollars for a home deposit just to get the benefits of owning a home in these areas,” he added.

Mr. Otton then shared that the secret to buying houses with little cash through making flexible payment terms.

“Creating flexible payment terms simply means giving buyers more flexibility on how they can purchase houses for sale. Unlike the traditional process, this creative strategy does not rely on big cash payments at the beginning and instead makes use of different modes of payment like sweat equity, old home loans, and even monthly rent,” according to Mr. Otton.

“That is the reason why with the help if creative strategies, home buyers shouldn’t worry if the suburb where they want to live in is within their reach based on how much of their cash is on hand,” Mr. Otton shared.
