What Most Real Estate Investors Do Not Know

What most sophisticated global investors do not know =  That you can now invest into senior debt in Australia replacing the position the commercial banks used to take.

What does this mean in simple terms ?

  • The Australian government has changed the rules restricting commercial banks from lending to real estate, meaning real estate companies need to go to the private investor market instead
  • Real estate companies are therefore willing to pay much higher interest rates to private lenders, than what they previously had to pay for essentially the same money
  • Your investment is secured in a 1st registered mortgage position against the propertythat you are loaning the money to, private investors get the same security (or better) than the banks used to require
  • Typically private investors were only able to access mezzanine/junior debt investments, which only get paid out of the project after the senior lenders. Mezzanine debt was typically paying 15% interest/year, but now some senior debt is also paying 15%. Same return with less risk.
  • The minimum investment term is as short as 6 months
  • If the real estate company borrowing the money defaults on any payments, investors have a registered security against the property and can repossess the property, which can then be sold allowing investors to receive their money back
