LONDON, April 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2008, property investment guru and author of The Big Property Lie Rick Otton first introduced his unique investment concepts and systems into the UK from Australia. At the time, they were considered to be revolutionary … some would say contrarian. They certainly challenged the traditional methods of buying and selling property.
While many dismissed his innovative 'rent to own' method and many traditional lenders seemed unconcerned, Rick was causing a quiet revolution in the industry. And not only has he changed the property investment playing field forever, he's returning to the UK to reveal his latest ideas and strategies that will shake up the industry and its status quo even further.
The Big Power Shift
According to Rick, the balance of power between the average property investor and traditional lenders has shifted.
"Through my teachings, people have discovered that they no longer have to go cap-in-hand to traditional lenders in order to get into the property market", he says.
After 20 successful years in the US and Australia real estate investment markets, in 2003 Rick Otton brought his unconventional property investing strategies to the UK. The time was right, it seems. Because now, fueled by the success stories from previous students, his training workshops sell out in record time.
His next workshop, to be held in London on April 15, 16 and 17 is no exception, with places expected to approach wait-list status. Those who have secured their seats, however, are set to receive new perspectives on UK property investing.
And Otton promises a few new surprises in this workshop.
His no-nonsense presentation style is based on a simple premise: he explains how, by thinking strategically, UK property investing is within the reach of almost everyone - even in difficult economic times, and even without a deposit.
When starting out in real estate investing, Otton studied the traditional process of buying and selling. "In the process, I found opportunities, and created a series of systems, strategies and processes which meant that literally anyone could buy a property without a bank loan, a mortgage, or any cash to invest whatsoever." he said.
And the banks, he says, don't want you to know about these options.
