Types of property investment
Forward funding involves paying in instalments towards the total final cost of an investment depending on the construction process. The final instalment is then paid upon completion. This option normally comes with competitive prices to generate higher yields for the buyer.
Individual investments are ideal for first-time property investors, owner occupiers or landlords looking to expand their property portfolios. Get access to new blocks, apartments, houses, HMOs or purpose-built student property, all direct from the developers.
This form of investment is a simple and fast way to aggregate a property portfolio. All it requires is a down payment when a deal is agreed with the developer. The payment of the remainder then follows on the practical completion of the project.
Preferred equity provides sponsors and property developers with a higher amount of leverage at a lower cost than common equity. For preferred equity real estate investors, it provides the opportunity to capture a fixed rate return with priority of payment and some upside.
A lot of big portfolios have been traded over the last couple of years, which has allowed investors to acquire significant portfolios of existing stock. Due to the current shortage of existing stock portfolios, the competition is stiff and great portfolios are hard to come by.
Joint ventures and co-investments have, to a great extent, replaced traditional property funding arrangements, mainly due to the high cost of financing after the credit crisis. Debt positions are available across the whole capital stack; senior, stretched senior and mezzanine.
