Building Futures through Developing Relationships, or “How to Get Development Funding”

So 2014 is bidding farewell to it’s first month and the scent of optimism is in the air.

Indications that the economy is finally on the up and up, a new housebuilding programme being mooted, house prices on an upward trend and deposit help for first time buyers.

A good time to broking mortgages, and we al know a builder right?

Surely a great time to be a builder, developer or architect too right? The sound of rusty trowels, setsquares and spirit levels being picked up from yards, storage and drawing boards fills the air like spring birdsong, or at least it should.

Sadly that’s not everyone’s experience at the moment though is it?

  • builders want to build
  • developers want to develop
  • architects want to draw
  • mortgage brokers want to package
  • banks want to lend. Don’t they? 

That’s the bit where it all falls down, the broken promises from the high street banks, quoting development funds, keeping everybody interested for months before withdrawing offers for extraneous reasons. Like Doris Day performing for the troops, the banks are skilfully stage managing the illusion that they will “put out”, while coquettishly withdrawing their advances at the last.

The image being that they are lending, when the reality is that  their balance sheets are still rusted up faster than a Victorian loom discarded in a Mancunian scrap yard.

So what if I told you I could get you your approval within an hour, and potentially fund your development within a blink of an eye?

Not a Doris Day wannabe here ladies and gentleman, we are the Marlene Dietrich of providers, oh yes, I don’t make promises I can’t keep.

If you provide us with:

  • Purchase price
  • Build Costs
  • GDV
  • a CV
  • and your facility requirements

Then we can get your deal approved to 100% build costs up to 50% GDV!

Sound good? Of course it does.

So, if you want, go and watch Doris Day on the High Street. she’ll sing for you, she’ll dance for you, but you’ll be left empty handed, or come and see Charles Frank, the Marlene Dietrich of packagers, we’ll keep the singing and dancing to a minimum and get onto the good stuff!
