While I’ve refined my techniques over the years.... it was the mindset shift that was the biggest leap forward for me
Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) May 16, 2012
For over 30 years Australian property investment expert, Rick Otton, has been buying and selling real estate, without the involvement of traditional lenders, like banks. In his just-published real estate book ‘How To Buy A House For A Dollar’, he has reveals the latest strategies that he uses, and teaches.
“I first began investing in property in the USA in the 1980s” said Mr Otton. “Because it was at a time of turmoil in the banking industry, it was necessary for me to think creatively in order to get into the market. While I’ve refined my techniques over the years, and modified them for different markets, it was the mindset shift that was the biggest leap forward for me.”
The traditional real estate purchase process involves aspiring property owners saving hard for a deposit, approaching the banks for a loan and demonstrating a solid employment history - and then being in debt for decades. The young, the low income earners and the self-employed have traditionally found it difficult to meet these requirements.
In ‘How To Buy A House For A Dollar’, Mr Otton explores some of the alternatives for buying property, and because his strategies require a mindset shift, he believes it to be a self improvement book as well - one that teaches techniques that can be used outside of the property investment process.
“Once readers learn to divest themselves of the belief that their ability to buy real estate rests in the hands of the banks, and grasp the common sense strategies that I explore in ‘How To Buy A House For A Dollar’, they will learn to think more creatively in other aspects of their lives as well” said Mr Otton.
The real estate book explores alternative property investing strategies that include the best ways to approach buyers and sellers, how to implement instalment contracts and sandwich leases, and how rent-to-buy is solving the real estate dilemma for a growing number of people the world over.
‘How To Buy A House For A Dollar’ has just been launched in Australia and New Zealand and is available now in quality bookstores. For more information visit http://www.howtobuyahouseforadollar.com
