Rick Otton Shares How Seller Finance Can Protect Property Investments During Unpredicatble Market Movements(August 19, 2014)
(PRWEB) August 19, 2014
Sydney took the lead in the stellar house price growth that the country experienced last June, which lead to an overall growth of 1.8 percent. However, JP Morgan economist Tom Kennedy, also warned that house price growth was being inflated by the outsized gain in Sydney, the Business Spectator reported on 12 August 2014.
In light of this report, Rick Otton, a highly-respected property coach and best-selling author, revealed how seller finance can help investors protect their investments at the time when market conditions vary from place to place.
Rick Otton discusses that now that house prices are moving in unpredictable patterns, people could secure a little stability within the value of their home, by using seller financing strategies.
A recent report revealed that Sydney house prices rose 15.6 percent in the 12 months leading up to June this year, and Melbourne took second place with a 9.3 percent gain. A senior analyst from JP Morgan admitted that the hyper active movement of the real estate market in Sydney is greatly inflating the national average, but he believes that prices will start to cool again once buyer activity in Sydney eases a little, he shared.
Reading news about the Australian real estate market nowadays is like riding a roller coaster. With confusing market movements being reported around the country, its not a surprise that many investors are unsure of what they should do, Mr. Otton explained.
Mr. Otton then revealed in one of his latest interviews for We Buy Houses Radio that for those who want to secure the value of their home against unpredictable market movements- learning and applying seller finance strategies is the solution for them.
The beauty of seller finance is in its flexibility. Buyers and sellers can negotiate and construct terms specific to their situation. This allows investors to tailor their strategies accordingly regardless of what location they are in, according to Mr. Otton.
A better alternative to the traditional system is to have a buyer negotiate for flexible payment terms. For instance, rather than take out a new bank loan, the buyer may negotiate to assume the existing financing and pay the remaining equity in increments. The flexibility makes it more convenient for the buyer to make the purchase. At the same time, a seller will be able to move away from unwanted debt much more quickly, he explained.
