(PRWEB) February 15, 2014
The Australian Bureau of Statistics found that the 9.3 million houses in Australia are collectively worth $5 Trillion after home values around the country jumped $184 billion in the last quarter of 2013, (the [News.com.au reported on 11 February 2014).
ABS’ housing finance data and capital city price index confirmed that strong sales for Australia real estate and robust lending fuelled the rise of house prices in 2013.
“The figures show the undeniable fact that Australia is currently in a property boom, and I believe that the strong demand for real estate Australia will continue to grow from here as more and more people want to climb the property ladder,” commented Rick Otton, a respected property coach for over 14 years.
“Aussies eager to invest or buy a home in a rising market, however, should be careful on how they enter the real estate market because cycles continually change. If you are locked in a highly leveraged property, rather than make profits, your investment can turn sour if the market turns suddenly,” he warned.
Mr. Otton then shared in an interview for the Ready, Set, Boom national tour that people can withstand a constantly changing real estate market if they use a strategy that can help them get in and out of properties without spending a lot of cash.
“I had no money when I started property investing in Dallas during the savings and loans crisis in the 90’s, but creative strategies helped me grow my property portfolio even after the market down cycle. This became possible, because unlike the other property investors, I created flexible payment terms between all the parties to a deal,” he said.
“One way to create flexible payment terms is to enter a seller finance agreement. In this set up, the buyer agrees to buy the property at the price the seller wants while the seller gives the buyer a flexible period to complete the payments,” Mr. Otton revealed.
