The world is full of unrealized dreams because a lot of people are not given the chance to find or learn the right tool kit to accomplish their goals, said Rick Otton, host of the Creative Real Estate iTunes podcast, in a recent episode.
Mr. Otton made this statement as a response to news reports that 29 percent of all real estate investments in the country are coming from foreign investors because he believes that more locals should play an active role in Australias real estate market most especially in Sydney – as the current vacancy rate in the city further dropped to 1.7 percent in April.
He said that more Sydneysiders would be interested to enter Sydney property investment if they were taught creative real estate processes, so he proceeded to share some of his experiences when he was starting out.
I always buddied-up with other people in order to buy houses. I would use their money to pay the sellers, while I would run around town arranging the paper works and the deals. This was a great way to start out because I got 100 per cent of the learning with minimal risks, he shared.
Mr. Otton also advised potential Sydney property investors to ask themselves the following questions: what is the game plan? and what do you plan to get out of the investment? Answering these questions will help an investor focus on the goals that he must accomplish with his investment, Mr. Otton said.
Mr. Otton, however, reminded potential investors that they should always think with the end in mind, which means preparing for an exit strategy if the original plans dont turn out as planned.
People must understand that the road to success is a step by step process and that road will, eventually, break down if all the steps are not followed. Treat your mistakes as a growth step, so you wouldnt be easily discouraged when facing difficult situations, he added.
Mr. Otton will be discussing more tips on how regular Aussies can achieve success with Sydney property investment in his upcoming one-day seminar on 7 August at Sydney. You can log on to http://www.howtobuyahouseforadollar.com/ now to register early.
