Greenfield specialise in bridging transactions and helping individuals and companies purchase property from an auction. The website states that their bridging products are ideal for the following scenarios:
Residential Chain: This is where bridging is able to quickly complete the transaction of a property. This is common for homeowners who looking to move and put an offer down on a new property. However, they are yet to sell their existing property and need the equity from the one to move home. A bridging product allows them to use the funds to put an offer in and secure the new property and once their original house has been sold, they can simply repay their loan.
This use is also popular for property developers and investors to get quick access to funds rather than having to wait weeks and months for a typical mortgage to go through.
Auction Finance: If you are buying property from an auction, Greenfield state that they will often step in whilst a bank is preparing the exit facility. Typically, when you buy at an auction, you need to come up with 90% of the property value within 28 days – and this is where their loans can help. Rather than waiting for other forms of funding to become available, successful applicants can receive monies within 7 days of applying.
Supporting Purchases and Refurbishments: For investors looking to refurbish a property and then re-sell or rent it out, Greenfield can help contribute towards the costs for architects, contractors, materials, interiors, plumbers and everything related to a refurb, light or heavy. Once completed and tenants are in place, they can arrange for a bank to refinance the deal.
Help With Cash-Flow And Support Orders: The company can assist with individuals looking to access money fast to help their growing businesses. This overlaps with invoice discounting whereby you have lots of orders coming into the business and you simply need more cash to fulfil the orders. Once you have received the injection of finance, you can make your orders, generate strong income and then repay your loan – finding yourself in a better cash position and growth position than before. Plus, you ensure that no business opportunities are missed out.
