No-Debt Property Investment Strategies Announced For UK Real Estate Conference in Wake of Moody’s Removal of AAA Rating

Share Article

Britain’s long-running AAA credit rating has been downgraded to an Aa1 rating, in a move which is expected to lead to sluggish growth into the second half of the decade. Property mastermind, Rick Otton, has revealed that because the effects of the downgrade will take about six months to filter through, UK residents still have a slim window of opportunity to embrace alternative ways to long term wealth creation, particularly through property investment.

Our property investment strategies do not rely on people having to borrow debt. In fact, we are the only tool set which does not rely on people creating debt to get into home ownership

Real estate investment strategist, Rick Otton, has reached out to UK property investors with a radical solution to their woes, following an official announcement in late February that Britain has been stripped of its AAA credit rating by agency Moody’s.

Mr Otton said he would share his non-conventional property investment strategies at a three-day ultimate real estate bootcamp for UK participants in April to help them through the negative filter-down effects of the credit rating downgrade.

“Britain’s downgrade to an Aa1 rating means the UK’s ability to to repay debt has deteriorated” said Mr Otton. “And the financial media is telling us that the nation’s credit status is unlikely to recover for some time – even possibly extending into the second half of the decade.”

Downward spiral

Mr Otton explained the impact of the downgrade on home owners, current and prospective.

“What happens is that if your risk potential goes up, say you lose your Triple A rating as in Britain’s case, fewer people will want to lend you money, and if they do want to lend you money, they will charge you a higher rate of interest,” he said.

“So right now Britain is in a lot of debt. Now that the country has lost its Triple A rating, it means they will need to pay more for their debt" Otton continued. "The Government has to collect extra money from somewhere. The only way for them to collect that money is to increase the taxes on the British people or to reduce the services it provides.”

Mr Otton, who is renowned in the UK as the creator of “Houses for a Pound”, said either of these two options would result in cost increases for business, which in turn would spiral to higher unemployment, greater dependence on welfare and more borrowing.

He said his property seminar would coach UK residents and homeowners to financial freedom through non-traditional ways of investing.

“As a result of the lowering of the credit rating in Britain, more people will have to sell properties they can no longer afford to hold. They’ll be looking for fast, quick and efficient ways to sell and that’s what our tool set of strategies provides people,” Mr Otton said.

“Other people who want to get into property will find borrowing money more expensive if they want to do it the traditional way. With our tool set, we simply make it easy for home buyers to move into houses without having to borrow new debt.

“Our property investment strategies do not rely on people having to borrow debt. In fact, we are the only tool set which does not rely on people creating debt to get into home ownership.”
