Property Development

Whether you are a seasoned property developer, a growing developer looking to take the big step from townhouses to unit blocks or someone new to property development, you should know by now that getting the financing right can make or break your project. We lean on over a decade of experience working on some of the biggest and most complex project financing transactions in Australia. Our role is to make sure that you get the most competitive financing solution for your property development project, and our track record of approving “unbankable” deals throughout different property cycles is a testament to our expertise.

Financing Your Development Project

I’m both the developer and the builder. My bank is giving me a hard time and want me to get a third party builder, is there any way around this?

You are not alone in this situation. During tough financing conditions such as what we are experiencing currently, banks’ risk appetite has tightened significantly and one of the first to be targeted are owner builders.

The reason for this is due to a perceived conflict of interest and less diversification in financial strength (2 balance sheet vs 1). However, owner developers are still bankable as we demonstrated recently with a client. From our experience, as an owner builder, your margin for error when it comes to financing is significantly smaller compared to a pure developer, so it is very important to do your prep work before you speak to the bank so you can put your best foot forward.
