Making a profit out of your real estate investment shouldn’t depend on existing market conditions. Rather, it should be in the terms of the deal you’re making.

BIS Shrapnel predicted that Sydney house prices, which are currently at an average of $795,000, will rise 14 percent in the next 2 financial years to $906,000. However, it will fall over on the third year plunging home prices to $875,000, reported on 22 June 2014.

In response to this property news, Rick Otton, a respected property coach and best-selling author, discusses that cycles are part of the real estate market, and what separates good investors from the pack is their ability to know what strategy to use among changing market conditions.

“I always remind my students that the market follows a cycle, and for every time prices are on their way up, it wouldn’t be too long when prices would start to slide down. Unfortunately, many property investors are unprepared for these kinds of shifts because they make a financial decision out of the fear of being left out and they disregard the value of making an exit strategy,” according to Mr. Otton.

Mr. Otton then said in a recent interview for We Buy Houses Radio that seller finance strategies are flexible strategies that anyone can use to make profit even when the market is down.

“Making a profit out of your real estate investment shouldn’t depend on existing market conditions. Rather, it should be in the terms of the deal you’re making. Seller finance strategies offer property investors the chance to create flexible terms and a way to craft an exit strategy from any investment property,” he shared.
