Impending Rent Hikes Not An Obstacle To Home Ownership, Says Rick Otton

Rick Otton, a respected figure in property investment, tells UK residents that impending rent hikes shouldn’t destroy their dream of becoming home owners if they follow relatively unknown yet effective strategies when buying a house.

Rental accommodations in the country are becoming more and more expensive every year, and this makes the dream of home ownership harder to reach for most people recently conducted a survey involving 1,629 landlords and found that 4 out of 10 the respondents plan on raising their rents this 2014. They also learned that almost 26 percent intend to raise rent by more than 3 percent, ( reported on 6 January 2014).

“Rental accommodations in the country are becoming more and more expensive every year, and this makes the dream of home ownership harder to reach for most people,” commented Rick Otton, a pioneer in creative strategies used to buy and sell houses.

“This news will not only impact people who have decided to live permanently on rental properties, but also those saving up for a home as more of their money will be funnelled into paying monthly rents rather than save up for houses for sale that could get them off the rental treadmill,” he explained further.

Mr. Otton, however, shared in a recent interview for the Free Report that renters around UK shouldn’t be alarmed with the impact of rent increase on their chance of buying a house, because creative strategies can help them buy a house without paying a large amount of deposit or new mortgages.

“Buying houses creatively is slowly becoming the new standard after the global financial crisis. Since then, it’s become harder for people to save for a deposit or take out a new loan to buy a house. So I came up with strategies on how people can start purchasing their own homes without depending on the traditional modes of payment,” he shared.

“To do this buyers agree to pay for the house at the price the sellers want, and, in turn, the sellers give the buyers some flexibility on how long they will make the full payment on the property. This way, buyers don’t end up taking years to save up for a house, while sellers generate steady cash flow every month,” Mr. Otton added.
