Development finance from Banks is keenly priced at sub 6% for property developers with experience and good equity in projects.  Loan to cost ratios are around 70%. Banks have significantly pulled back lending due to heavier regulation and capital adequacy requirements, although we are finding Bank development finance approvals  are still occurring for high quality projects matched with experienced developers.

Mortgage Fund and Private Funds start at 8% p.a. and loan to value ratios are up to 70%.

Developers forced out of the Banking system due to harsher loan criteria are still getting their projects funded by mortgage funds and private lenders.

No Presales Construction Finance is available from 8% p.a.

The property boom is over and the slide in property prices has bottomed and we are now entering a stable real estate market in Australia which is an ideal time for property developers to capitalise on the very low interest rates.  Finance commentators expect interest rates to drop again in the future.

Mezzanine Finance

Mezzanine finance is readily available for financially viable real estate projects.  Interest rates start from 15% p.a. to 20% p.a.

Joint Ventures

Joint Ventures are available for projects located in capital cities or fringe areas (not regional).  Terms are by negotiation.

Equity Investors

Prudential Finance is always happy to discuss upcoming projects with investors who would like to achieve a higher interest rate than currently available  from Banks or other institutions. Invest directly into property development projects for returns of 7% p.a. to 20% p.a.

Building Bond Scheme

Industry Reforms the Building Bond Scheme

Further industry reforms have taken effect 1 January 2018 (Building Bond Scheme) where Developers of residential Strata schemes will be required to execute Mandatory Defect Inspection Reports along with lodging a Building Bond equal to 2% of the final contracted construction cost of the building.

building bond scheme

The building bond scheme applies to building work to construct residential or partially-residential strata properties that are four or more storeys. Buildings that are three storeys or under are covered under the Home Building Compensation Fund.

We thought it would be worthwhile to remind yourselves of these changes which I’m sure your already up to speed with these reforms, if not you can find more information on Fair Trading NSW website below and or speak with your property lawyer.

Multiple Funding Channels for Property Developers

Multiple Funding Channels for Property Developers are Imperative

The vast majority of developers we help obtain Construction and or Development Finance tend to focus only on private funding solutions as it has been a reliable way to efficiently source funding.

Multiple Funding Channels for Property Developers

We are seeing an increasing number of new clients who have historically relied upon bank funding who are now migrating over to non-bank lending.  Its no surprise that bank funding has become increasing difficult due to pressure from regulators which is heavy publicised and hence a shift to private funding.

I think its important to have a mixture of both bank and non-bank funding channels/relationships in place at all times. This is a common conversation we have with new and existing clients.

There are several pros and cons of bank and private funding such as interest rate, timeframe, pre-sales, LVR differentials etc, etc but to me no matter what cycle we are in, building robust relationships and having multiple options with both Bank and Private Funding will be paramount to developers who have or are working on building a healthy pipeline.

What I do know, is the landscape is continually changing and either you adapt or you fall behind as the future is unknown.  Most developers may already have coverage from both sides but we continue to hear otherwise and wanted to reiterate our view in event we can help someone who may be thinking about this.

Commercial Property Finance (Loans)

WESTPAC, ANZ LEAD COMMERCIAL PROPERTY LENDING CHARGE

Westpac and ANZ Bank are the most aggressive of the banks with increasing their lending to commercial property finance (Loans) compared to other major banks, as they pump billions of dollars more into a sector offering growth but also posing higher risks.

Jonathan Mott from UBS Banking found in his new research from last year, Westpac was leading the rebound of commercial property finance (Loans) , expanding its exposure by 11.1 per cent. Following behind on an increase of 9.3 per cent was ANZ, which has been pursuing NAB’s business customers. Commonwealth bank also grew 4.9 per cent.

While traditionally commercial property lending is much riskier than home loans for banks, Mr Mott said investors should be “alert, both not alarmed” by the rapidly increased growth.

During the global financial crisis, commercial property finance (Loans) was a main source of bad loans for Australian banks despite being significantly smaller than the $1.3 trillion mortgage market. If lending standards begin to slip, commercial real estate finance (Loans) may again become an issue for the banks,” according to Mr Mott.

Westpac, which is seeking to expand its business loan book, said in its latest results that competition in commercial property finance (Loans) had intensified, but capital growth was low and income was the main driver of returns.

The increase in bank lending follows an influx of foreign capital into Australian real estate investment trusts (A-REITs), attracted by the higher yields in an environment of low interest rates.

Figures from the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority show, showed the four major banks commercial property finance (Loans) exposure was $195.6 billion at the end of March, an increase of 7.9 per cent compared to the previous year.

Commercial Property Finance is available from Prudential Finance.  Through mayor Banks or through our Private Lending.  Bank interest rates start from sub 6% p.a. and private lending interest rates start from $8.25% p.a.

Property Investment – Chinese Visa Surge

Property Investment – Chinese Visa Surge

GOLDEN TICKET VISAS SURGE

Rich foreigners with the equivalent of $405 million investment applications for visas were approved in April and May.

The “golden ticket” visas were issued to eighty-one successful applicants, the most issued since the program started in late 2012. Of those, eighty-five per cent were issued to Chinese nationals. So far, 255 visas have been issued by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection worth $1.28 billion sine the launch of the program.

To be eligible for the program, foreigners must invest a minimum of $5 million in government bonds, Australian proprietary companies or ASIC-regulated managed funds. The visa allows the receiver and their family to migrate to Australia and after four years they can apply for permanent residency.

Compared to other migrant visas the recipient has no age limit or standard English language proficiency requirements. Majority of the visas have been issued to people investing in NSW and Victoria schemes.

The NSW government’s Waratah Bond program is among those to have seen an uptick in investment. $1.5 million is the minimum investment over a four year, fixed rate with foreigners apply to be part of the program granted they have obtained a NSW government sponsorship.

Chief executive of ASX-listed Centuria’s, Jason Huljich says, “The vast majority of money is going into bonds. Investors want to put their money into something they believe will 100 per cent preserve their capital base. They don’t care that much about low returns”.

There has been a significant growth in interest in the visa program since the cancellation of long-running Canada’s immigrant investor program. It was cancelled in February with a waiting list of 59,000 people.

Michael Burstin of Oliver Hume Funds Management said “We now have over $30 million committed to our fund and expect a further $20 million once current visa applications are approved later this year.”

Bonds are considered an easy alternative for investors who are either unwilling or unable to identify worthwhile private funds to invest in.
