But even for non-first-time buyers who miss out on these programs, it is still very possible to structure affordable deals by utilising alternative strategies like seller finance.

Property analysts in the U.K. have reached a conclusion that property for sale is becoming more affordable for first home buyers because of the government’s Help To Buy scheme, and over three-quarters of homebuyers in England and Wales paid less than the asking price within the past year, reported on 1 July 2014.

In response to this news, Rick Otton, a highly sought-after property coach, tells U.K. residents that they can amplify the positive effects of the government’s Help To Buy scheme when they enter the real estate market using seller finance strategies.

“Latest government figures revealed that around 35,000 houses for sale were sold in the UK through Help To Buy, and almost 85 per cent of the Help To Buy equity loan sales were awarded to first home buyers. It’s evident that with the government’s efforts, UK residents, especially first home buyers, have finally gained their footing in the real estate market. But even for non-first-time buyers who miss out on these programs, it is still very possible to structure affordable deals by utilising alternative strategies like seller finance,” according to Mr. Otton.

“Through seller finance, home buyers around the country could further improve their chances of buying property for sale because it helps people get more affordable payment terms from sellers,” he said.

Mr. Otton explained in a recent interview for that seller finance strategies can help buyers create convenient payment terms because it doesn’t require buyers to have new mortgages or save up large sums of cash for deposit fees.

“The biggest obstacle that homebuyers face when buying property for sale is getting enough financing. And by assuming existing loans and the need to come up with large deposit fees, the buying process becomes much simpler for all parties,” he shared.
