Development Commercial

If you are looking to build a residential or commercial development and you have a clear exit strategy, but the Banks have said NO (or time is of the essence), then we may be able to assist.Each Project is assessed on its own merits (both in terms of the type and location of the Development and the track record of the Applicants).

  • Commercial, Industrial, Residential or mixed Projects possible
  • 70% of gross realisable value or 80% of "hard costs", whichever is the lesser (Project dependent)
  • Shorter loan terms to match expected Project life plus safety
  • Exit Strategy critical (Refinance or sale on completion)
  • Pre-sales not always required (usually ALWAYS required by the Banks)
  • Prior Development experience in similarly sized Developments is a major benefit
  • Credit issues considered - it is the viability of the Project that is the Driver
  • Loans are unregulated, so there is less emphasis on the financial strength of the Applicants
  • Large loan amounts possible
  • Land sub-divisions possible

Some examples of Projects that have been approved:

  • $18 million Residential Development, 65% LVR, no pre-sales
  • $4 million Unit Development, 70% LVR, no pre-sales
  • $3 million Land Bank, 65% LVR
  • $2.5 million Land Bank, 70% LVR
