Real estate investment educator, Rick Otton, has for over a decade shared his out-of-the-box strategies and techniques with everyday people. Whether first homebuyers, investing novices or those experienced in the property investment sphere, he has showed them how investing his way opens up a raft of opportunities.
Following the success of his recent three-day UK property investing conference, Mr Otton has made available his weekly podcast show.
“Buying and selling real estate the old-school way is so last-century,” said Mr Otton. “However the traditional financial institutions want to keep us blinkered - unable to see the other innovative opportunities that are at our fingertips.”
“I’ve just read that it takes around 62 hours a month for four months for home hunters to find a home to buy. Then, if they have already saved for years and have the required deposit, they need to go through a bank’s loan application process, and the months keep ticking by. It just doesn’t have to be this complex or take so long,” he said.
A recent Clydesdale Bank and Yorkshire Bank survey of first homebuyers revealed that half of them said it took up to three years more than they’d planned before they moved into their home.
Innovative Strategies For Now
Mr Otton’s strategies, which are discussed each week in his podcast, focus around matching seller needs with buyer needs, rather than getting caught up in economic climates, interest rates, loans and prices.
Our shows discuss ‘How to buy a house without a bank’ which includes case studies, ‘Student tips to getting started in the property game’, a handy cheat sheet ‘Four ways to buy property at a discount’, and a three-report set on Bargains, Cash Flow Versus Capital, and Student Renovation Secrets.
It is this shift in mindset that Mr Otton believes is key to building a property portfolio that will generate a passive income as well as backend profit.
“I’ve been teaching my UK students how to do this for over 10 years now, and their stories are up for all to see on my RickOtton.co.uk website. They are exciting to work with because they are creative thinkers who refuse to accept that just the way something was always done in one way, cannot be accomplished in another.”
Mr Otton continues to test and implement new strategies that continue to push the boundaries set by tradition, and in the process shares his knowledge at seminars, conferences, podcasts, and through books and digital downloads.
