Otton Reports Australian Property Statistics Confuse and Alienate Beginner Real Estate Investors

Share Article

There continues to be conflicting reporting of statistics surrounding the state of the Australian real estate market believes property investment mentor, Rick Otton, with those with vested interests arbitrarily selecting to report only the figures that support their businesses.

These training events will encourage attendees to look at buying and selling real estate for a perspective that is out of the norm

Property investment strategies, Australian Rick Otton, is about to embark on a series of free one day training seminars aimed at teaching property investing for beginners. One of the key drivers of the decision to conduct these seminars, he says, has been to help dispel some of the myths and selective reporting surrounding real estate investing in the current economic climate.

“For the last two years Australian’s have been fed a diet of gloom and doom about the local real estate market” he explains. “Sure, property prices have dropped, but there are strategies that can be employed - the ones that I teach - that allow sellers to get the prices they want for their homes. It is just a matter of looking at things a little differently.”

Despite the fact that two of the country’s property research organisations, Australian Property Monitors and RPData, show that house prices have risen in response to interest rate cuts, there are still ‘experts’ predicting a property market crash.

“At the same time, we are being told that home loan approval rates have continued to fall despite the lower interest rates” said Mr Otton.  “So people wanting to invest in real estate are understandably confused:  should they or shouldn’t they get into this market?”

The problem with conflicting reports, he says, is that they all have the traditional lenders - the banks - and home loan interest rates as their focus. Mr Otton’s real estate investment seminar series has been created to show how potential sellers, buyers and investors can take the banks out of the equation.

A Shift In The Real Estate Investing Paradigm

Mr Otton’s real estate investing training events, which are free, will be taking place throughout August 2012 in Brisbane, Sydney, Parramatta, Melbourne and Preston. They build on the strategies shared in Mr Otton’s property book for Aussies ‘How To Buy A House For A Dollar’.

“These training events will encourage attendees to look at buying and selling real estate for a perspective that is out of the norm” said Mr Otton. “They will cut through the hype surrounding the conflicting statistics, and get back to some common sense basics, sharing my innovative techniques along the way.”
