Finance can be taken out when it comes to residential or commercial property. Both types of finance will be based on the circumstances of the individual rather than a set rate of interest. The actual rate which is set out will depend on the type of property you want finance for and the sector at the time of going for finance. However as a guideline you can expect to pay a rate of interest between 1.5% and 2.5%. A broker will of course be able to negotiate with the lender on your behalf and will known where to go to get the best deal for your circumstances.

As the majority of people find raising finance for property development confusing a specialist website will be able to offer all the advice needed to get them started.

The majority of finance needed for property development projects will run into tens of thousands of pounds. As this is so the majority of loans are often taken on an interest only basis. An interest only loan means that you will only repay the interest part of the loan. However when the term of the loan reaches an end there will be the capitol left to pay. This will have to be paid in a lump sum and usually a lender will need some assurance that you do have the assets available for this. If you are willing to pay more each month for the repayments then a repayment loan would pay off the total amount borrowed during the loans term. A little of your monthly repayment would be taken off the capitol and the interest.

Loan to project costs are taken into account when it comes to the actual amount you are able to borrow. With the majority of lenders this will be in the region of 70% to 75% which means that you have a shortfall to make up. This rate will be based on the projected gross property development values, however if the property developer is experienced then 100% funding may be possible.

When looking to raise finance for property development there is much more to be taken into account. A broker can always get access to lenders you cannot which means you get the cheapest rates possible for your circumstances.
