Real Estate Investment Innovator, Rick Otton

Each time the big banks fail to pass on the interest rate cuts...... it is just another blow to aspiring home owners and those who are trying to sell property

For over 30 years, Australian Rick Otton, has been developing and using property investment strategies that are innovative and creative in their execution. In his just-published book “How To Buy A House For a Dollar” he explains how property transactions can be take place without the involvement of the banks. This, he says, has become even more important as the banks again refuse to pass on the Reserve Bank interest rate cuts.

“Each time the big banks fail to pass on the interest rate cuts recommended by the Reserve Bank, it is just another blow to aspiring home owners and those who are trying to sell property” said Mr Otton. “This arrogance from the banks just highlights how they hold consumers to ransom in an outdated real estate transaction system.”

“I am really pleased that in a period that has been described as ‘challenging’, my strategies for successful property investment can be implemented without involving the traditional lenders - the banks” continued Mr Otton.

In “How To Buy A House For a Dollar” Otton takes readers on a journey of education and mindset-change. He explains how the traditional way of conducting a property purchase came about, and reveals that just because it this has been widely accepted as ‘standard’, it does not mean that there aren’t other, more creative and legitimate, ways.

The book is for both buyers and sellers, and he opens the readers’ eyes to strategies that include:

  • Installment contracts
  • Deposit finance
  • Rent-to-own, and
  • Sandwich leases

“None of these strategies involve handing over a hefty deposit and applying for a mortgage” said Mr Otton. “Once readers grasp the common-sense concepts I put forward, monitoring mortgage interest rates from the banks will become unnecessary.”

Otton’s “How To Buy A House For a Dollar” real estate investing book has just hit the shelves of good bookstores, including:

  • Dymocks
  • Angus & Robertson
  • QBD
  • Collins
  • Berkelouw

and many independent book stores.
