Real Estate Investment Innovator, Rick Otton

If overseas investors can see value in investing in Australian property, then it should instill confidence in Aussies as well

Foreign investment in the Australian property market is continuing, despite the financial woes of the rest of the world. This, believes property investment strategist, Rick Otton, is a good indicator that Australians too should become involved, and get solid real estate investing training.

“The Australian economy has remained stable throughout the financial turmoil that has been faced by most other nations” explained Mr Otton. “Foreign investors are chasing yields several percentage points higher than what they can get in, say, London, New York, Singapore or Hong Kong.”

Most of the property investment funds are coming from Asia, particularly from pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, and REITS.

“If overseas investors can see value in investing in Australian property, then it should instill confidence in Aussies as well” continued Mr Otton. “In the last six months alone, foreign investors have committed around $3.7 billion in Australian property markets.”

Mr Otton, author of ‘How To Buy A House For A Dollar’, has been teaching his creative real estate investment strategies for Aussies for over 10 years, showing how the people (especially those whom the banks turn away) can become property investors.

“It frustrates me to hear how good, honest people are being denied home ownership because they cannot meet the tough criteria of the traditional lenders - the banks” said Mr Otton. “And that they are being disenfranchised while properties are being purchased by offshore entities is increasingly difficult to accept.”

It was the inability to meet the requirements of the lenders that was the impetus for Mr Otton to develop his innovative property investment strategies back in 1991, to teach them to through property investment for beginners courses, and, in 2012 to become the author of his property book for Aussies, ‘How To Buy A House For A Dollar’

He announced “To help people understand these concepts, I have just announced a series of free one day real estate investment training seminars, which will be held in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland throughout August.”
