House prices in the UK consistently rose 2.2 percent monthly from December 2013 to February 2014, the Mortgage Finance Gazette reported on 6 March 2014.
The report added that house prices have been steadily rising in the past 11 months, and that the average home in the UK now costs £179, 872.
“The U.K. is experiencing a property boom right now, and the usual effect of a healthy real estate market is the continuous increase in house prices. This may be good news for many property investors who have been waiting a long time to grow the value of their investment property. But there is also a downside. It also becomes harder for investors to buy and grow their property portfolio,” commented Rick Otton, a sought after property coach for over 10 years.
“I say that increased house prices are a burden to home buyers, because when house prices increase, the deposit that home buyers have to pay rises with it, and with the stagnant wage rate, it would take a long time before regular folk can save up that kind of cash,” he explained further.
Mr. Otton then shared with a new interview for his Zero Debt Property Cashflow Bootcamp that the best solution to real estate problems is to think creatively.
“Home buyers around the U.K. should start changing their mindset that there is only 1 way to buy a house; and that is through getting new mortgages and a paying a large deposit for it. Times have changed and people need to adapt before they end up being renters their whole life,” according to Mr. Otton.
“One way to buy houses for sale creatively is through seller finance. Under this solution, sellers get to sell their property at the price they want. In exchange, they have to give the buyer flexibility on how they can make payments. At the end of the day, it’s in the flexibility of the terms that creates affordability,” he shared.
