...hundreds of thousands of hard working Australians are being locked out of the market because of stricter lending practices and high property prices

While current Australian mortgage holders breathed a sigh of relief when the Reserve Bank kept interest rates on hold for September 2011, even the International Monetary Fund (IMF) believes rates must rise in coming months. For creative property investment strategist, Rick Otton, such uncertainty illustrates perfectly why people are now looking beyond traditional lenders when considering property options.

For years Mr Otton has been employing strategies, that he devised, for buying properties for a dollar, with no bank loans and not a lot of cash. And he has taught over 30,000 students to do the same.

“Our banking system is not what it used to be.” explained Otton. “It is only a few short years ago that banks would lend us money for whatever we wanted.”

Creative Investing In Property Australian Style

The global financial crisis, and an ongoing challenging financial climate, Mr Otton believes, has seen traditional lenders close their doors to many aspiring investors. But, he says, it is from challenges such as these that innovation emerges.

“When I first developed my ‘no money down’ property buying strategies, it was in the USA in the middle of the Savings & Loans crisis in the 1980s. The banks stopped lending, and I wanted to buy - so I embraced the adage that ‘necessity is the mother of invention’ and devised my rent to by strategy” he explained.

His ‘how to options’ translate particularly well to the Australian property investment situation, which has for years been at the mercy of traditional lenders.

“There is a surplus of property Australian investors can access, but I see that hundreds of thousands of hard working Australians are being locked out of the market because of stricter lending practices and high property prices.” said Mr Otton.

“There are big changes in property acquisitions taking place all around the world, including Australia, and I am looking forward to teaching others how, by using my strategies, they can become property owners, by working within the rules of loans that already exist.”
