How do I raise finance?

The question that is asked all the time by property investors is - how do I raise the finance to begin?  If you are starting from the great perspective of having a good chunk of capital or you are able to release equity from a property to work with when you begin to buy property; then that is great. 

It makes the process much easier as it gives you the confidence to know that any offer you make is backed up by funds in the bank and therefore offers you greater bargaining power.  Coupled with the right knowledge and guidance, it also means that you can start your search sooner rather than later and get going on your chosen strategy.

Raising Finance

If you are trying to raise finance, then it would be a good idea to check your credit rating and mortgage status.  Speaking to a mortgage broker who specialises in lending for investment purposes about your ability to raise a mortgage would be a good place to start to see if you’re at least in the running in this sense. 

Regarding raising finance for the deposit or to buy outright, this can be a tricky subject.  There are a number of ways in which you could pull money together and we have listed them below:

  • Credit Card (short term)
  • Borrow money from relatives or very close friends
  • Borrow money (in the form of a loan) from friends or acquaintances
  • Raise Bridging Finance (in a number of different ways)
  • Bank Loan
  • Angel Investor/High Net Worth Individual/Sophisticated Investor
  • Vendor Finance (in certain circumstances)

 Check out our commercial finance and our mortgage section for more information on raising finance.

Nationwide announces interest rate cut

Nationwide have announced this week that they have cut rates on some fixed rate mortgages by up to 0.50% and some tracker rates by up to 0.70% whilst other lenders have been busy amending their own product ranges. This amount of activity from so many lenders has many believing an increase in the Bank of England base rate is more likely than at any time since the rate was dropped to its previous all-time low of 0.50%. This of course adds more fuel to the fire that an increase in interest rates is due this week.An upwards move to the interest rate on Thursday would draw to a close the longest period in living memory without an interest rate rise, with the last in July 2007, when rates increased to 5.75%.By announcing early Nationwide could be looking to capitalise on homeowners who may be worried about what a potential rise...

A Guide to Buy-to-Let Mortgages

These days, it’s more important than ever to make 100% sure that you have thoroughly understood the numbers behind a buy to let property, particularly when it comes to your mortgage. With this in mind, here is a brief guide to buy to let mortgages.Buy to let mortgages work differently depending on whether or not you are a limited companyEven though lenders assess potential borrowers on the basis of the rental income they (expect to) receive from the property, in a worst-case scenario; they can make a claim against a private individual’s personal property. They can, however, only claim against the assets of a limited company rather than the property of the people who own the company and have to take this fact into consideration when deciding whether or not to do business with them.Landlords with more than three mortgaged properties must have their whole portfolio assessedThis regulation comes into...

Finance using a refurbishment strategy

A property refurbishment can give a significant uplift in value, provided you have bought well and the works are done to a sensible spec and budget. At the cheaper end of the market, you might find you are bidding against a first-time buyer who intends to live in the property, or perhaps against a builder who can carry out the works themselves, “at cost”. These competitors might well be happy to pay more for a property than an investor, given they might not be working off a yield, or against the same project costs. At the more expensive end, the finish will become more important, and yields likely to be slimmer, so choose your investment property wisely, and don’t let your emotions get in the way! Refurbishment LoanFrom a short-term (bridging) lenders perspective, a Refurbishment Loan would be applicable if there is an existing structure (property) which remains wind &...
