Rick Otton Urges Australian Property Investors to Think Outside the Box

Rick Otton Urges Australian Property Investors to Think Outside the Box

(PRWEB) July 08, 2014

In a new interview, leading Australian property market authority, Rick Otton, has drawn investor attention to the under-researched sectors of the Australian property market. He has revealed that strong price rises in the saturated Sydney and Melbourne property markets have limited future returns, and that there is value in the lesser known markets which may have brighter prospects.

Every investor in the Australian property market has read the recent stories about price rises and record auction clearance rates in the Sydney and Melbourne property markets said Mr Otton. However, 10% growth and seriously competitive markets have the effect of pricing many investors out of the market he went on to say.

Thats why I believe that Australian property investors should get creative and turn their attention to understanding and investing in cities outside the Sydney-Melbourne property market bubble.

For example, in Darwin, there is a chronic undersupply of housing. The natural effect is that prices must go up. And the proof is in the data, with the city that most Australians forget about in the Top End recording 20% price gains in some suburbs, with unit price increases in suburbs like Nightcliff and Coconut Grove increasing more than 25% revealed Mr Otton.

On the other end of the spectrum is Canberra, with demand falling greatly in the wake of the last election and cuts to the public service. But the general consensus is that the Canberra market is at the low point of its cycle, and there are some bargains to be had Mr Otton said. And even in a downturn, desirable suburbs on the north such as Bruce and Forde have shown resilience.

Different market conditions, create different opportunities for investors to use innovative and creative strategies to grow their wealth through investing in the property market. Before implementing complex strategies however, a successful investor must first have certain specifics place for buying and selling properties. Thats where my We Buy Houses Radio Show is helping people from all walks said Mr Otton.
