No matter how experienced an investor is in individual transactions or their local market, it’s knowing the big themes that turns good investors into fantastic ones
(PRWEB) June 19, 2014
In his most recent podcast, Australian property investing professional, Rick Otton, has turned his attention to big concepts that frequently come up in discussions about the property market, but which are also commonly misunderstood or unknown.
Mr Otton has in the last 30 years gathered a wealth of knowledge on successful investing and has developed and implemented innovative strategies around the world. His focus has now shifted to providing both experienced and aspiring property investors with the tools they need to succeed in their own investments.
“In my travels and seminars I get the chance to meet a lot of bright, motivated and energetic people who are at different stages of their property investment journey,” said Mr Otton. “But the thing that many have in common, and one that always surprises me, is a lack of knowledge of the big themes that drive the property market,” Mr Otton went on to say.
“No matter how experienced an investor is in individual transactions or their local market, it’s knowing the big themes that turns good investors into fantastic ones,” revealed Mr Otton.
“That’s why in this podcast I’ve taken the time to explain concepts like leverage and inflation, which affect every single property market in the world. I make these concepts relatable by using examples of well-known figures to illustrate what I’m talking about. Don’t be surprised if Donald Trump makes a guest appearance in my latest podcast,” said Mr Otton.
“Two other big themes that are common to all property markets are the ‘middle class’ and particularly debt and inflation,” said Mr Otton. “The issue is especially topical in light of the recent Federal Budget” he went on to say."
“I explain why the middle-class is the prime target for government taxation,” said Mr Otton. “I also let investors in on the secret of why governments actually don’t mind inflation affecting the population,” explained Mr Otton.
In the second half of the podcast Mr Otton relates these concepts back to the strategies of individual investors by answering readers’ questions.
“What I’m hoping to do with this podcast is show how the big picture concepts relate to individual investors issues and their commonly encountered problems,” said Mr Otton. “While the big picture concepts largely stay the same, the strategies used to make money in the property market have evolved over time. Investors now have access to a much wider range of investment options than ever before, and can access this information from a huge range of sources,” said Mr Otton.
