“Thanks for rescuing me from the task from Hell!”
As a developer you’ve plenty on your plate, from finding/assessing sites to wrestling with planning consultants, to keeping costs down, to managing contractors and making sure everything happens on schedule.
At least finance was the one thing you could count on being sorted quickly by your high street bank…or was until a few short years ago…
How Simple Became Complicated
Searching for development finance has become a minefield, a headache and a real challenge to get to grips with.
There are now over 40 specialist development finance lenders alone, and many other mezzanine, equity and bridging lenders who are all useful in different ways.
Understanding the marketplace, finding all the lenders, selecting lenders to approach and comparing them to come out with a winner or two is no easy task, and on your own is not a quick one.
- It is difficult to know where to start
- It is frustrating, and possibly daunting, on your own
- It is time consuming, and time is money
- Poor lender selection can cost you thousands
1. Still guessing which lender could be right for you?
What if someone could take you to the top 4 or 5 lenders for your situation instantly, and thereby saving you on all that time searching and networking?
What if they could then compare the shortlist properly so you had the right information with which to select the right lender, quickly and painlessly?
Would an experienced, guiding hand that deals with the whole marketplace full-time and understands deeply all lenders, be of real help to your business and ultimately your profitability?
If so we may be the choice for you.
