DEVELOPMENT AND CONSTRUCTION FINANCE

If you are looking to build your new home rather than buy an existing property, you need a different type of home loan known as a construction loan. A construction loan can also suit you if you are making major renovations to your existing home or to a property you have bought but which needs a bit, or a lot, of work before you call it home.

 

Draw down funds in stages as your new home is being built

 

  • Features designed specifically to fund the building of your new home
  • Loan funds are advanced progressively as your builder completes pre-agreed construction stages
  • You could save money, since interest is payable only on the amount advanced under the loan
  • We’ll help you establish a schedule of progress payments and assist you in identifying your building expenses so payments are made to the builder after each stage of the building has been inspected and verified.

Obtaining Development Funding has become increasingly difficult since the Global Financial Crisis (GFC).

 

Mint Financial Solutions has various options for Development Funding to suit most scenarios. Whether you have 100% pre sales, or no pre-sales, we understand the importance of tailoring each funding structure on a project by project basis. Banks have ‘tightened the screws’ on development funding although they are still the cheapest option in terms of rate and fees. An outline of the general requirements for this type of funding is:

 

  • LVR of 65% of GRV (exc GST) OR 80% of cost (the lesser of)
  • Generally require 100% debt coverage in Pre Sales.
  • Full Financials of the Developer
  • Developer needs extensive experience in the industry
