CapitalStackers investors can look forward to a return of up to 14% from a development of nine luxury flats in an established and popular residential road in Solihull.Front Elevation

The project is the latest scheme by Avalanche Capital – the successful team that some will remember repaid investors early when their spacious Chessets Wood dwellings were built and sold ahead of schedule in December last year, paying annualised returns of between 9.8% and 13.8% after just 7 months.

This latest scheme is to be built on the site of a large, unoccupied dwelling which will be demolished to make way for spacious, well appointed 2 & 3 bedroom apartments ranged over three floors.

The construction finance of £2,025, 000 is being provided by NatWest and the developers are contributing £900,000 of their own funds, leaving a crowdfunding opportunity for CapitalStackers investors to raise £930,000. Investment bids are invited from as little as £5,000.

“Excellent” levels of profit are expected – the site has already seen a substantial rise in value following planning permission, and confidence is further enhanced by the appointment of John Shepherd Estate Agents (who have previously sold Avalanche developments at better than appraised values) as the selling agents.

Deal Infogram - St. Bernards Road by Avalanche CapitaWe have adopted a conservative figure of £5.8m pending formal valuation, which results in a respectable Loan-to-Value ratio of 55%. It’s worth noting the agent anticipates selling for around £6.3m.

Given the above factors, investor demand will be extremely high when bidding opens at noon on Tuesday 10th April – so if this sounds like the right sort of investment for you, please don’t miss out.

Unless otherwise stated, returns quoted are annualised and gross of tax.

Building begins this month on a sympathetic development of 2, 3 & 4 bedroom stone houses in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Gregory Property Group – who have an excellent track record of successful developments over the last 30 years – have completed the drawdown of £504,000 funding for the first 11 houses, which is the first phase of 22 dwellings in the sought-after, picture-postcard village of Dacre Banks.

The development augments the area by adopting former vacant commercial land – and when completed will have a value of £5.8m. This will furnish annualised returns for CapitalStackers investors of 12.6% to 17.1% over 18 months – at Loan to Value ratios of 65% and 74% respectively – depending on which risk layer they have chosen.

As well as arranging the crowdfunded segment of the loan, CapitalStackers also negotiated the construction facility of £2m with Hampshire Trust Bank, one of its senior debt relationship lenders.

Sylvia Bowden of CapitalStackers said “it’s encouraging to find that we’re attracting new investors with each new deal published. The list of registered members continues to grow, with an average investment size of around £67,000 – although it is possible to invest as little as £5,000 with CapitalStackers. To meet the growing demand for investment, we are trialling a new policy where CapitalStackers invests in developments itself and then releases loans onto our secondary market, to make opportunities available for recently joined members”.

Not only does this exceptional development further adorn one of Yorkshire’s foremost areas of outstanding beauty – it will enrich and diversify the local population. It will attract a mix of young professionals, families and downsizers lured by rural village life, and commuters to Leeds and Harrogate, it also offers further proof of the escalating popularity of loan-based property crowdfunding as a consistent route to double-digit returns.

A new development in Yorkshire could net you up to 17% return from a minimum investment of £5,000.Aerial View

CapitalStackers is inviting crowdfunding loans to help launch a development of 11 homes along with the purchase of additional land with detailed planning permission for a further 11 houses in a popular location.

Dacre Banks is an English village in the Yorkshire Dales, with the archetypal features of a cricket green, a popular pub, traditional shop and church, plus the added boon of a medical centre.

Homes tend to be highly sought after in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty set amid stunning moorland scenery and a tapestry of lush green meadows – just 11 miles from Harrogate and easily commutable from Leeds. Furthermore, historic planning restrictions and a shortage of new build properties have created a healthy build-up of demand.

InfogramGregory Property Group, very experienced developers operating since 1985, have created a scheme with broad appeal – a selection of 2, 3 & 4 bedroom houses (including 5 ìaffordableî homes – two available in the first phase), designed to attract a diverse mix of young professionals, families and older downsizers lured by rural village life, and commuters to Leeds and Harrogate. The houses will sell for between £249,950 and £375,000 (although sales agents have advised that prices may be 5% higher) with a total value for the 11 homes in Phase 1 assessed at £2,794,000 and the whole development at £3,858,584.

Senior funding of £2,340,000 has been secured from Hampshire Bank Trust, so CapitalStackers investors are invited to fill the balance of £504,000, in loans of £5,000 upwards, for returns of between 12.65% and 17.18% for a Loan to Value range of 65% to 73%.

Chessetts Wood

Two large, luxury houses in Solihull stand to make a tidy sum for CapitalStackers investors. The crowdfunded development – already 58% subscribed – has attracted a lot of attention from existing CapitalStackers investors, many of whom have already made up to 22.5% last year on the platform’s  Foss Place development in York, which paid out early after only 8 months with a Loan-To-Value ratio of 76%.

The Solihull deal comes in with an even more attractive risk ratio of just 67% LTV for a return of 12.59%, and 51.9% LTV returning 10.02%, with the senior funding being provided by Natwest (who have, of course, already carried out their usual due diligence checks).

The development of these two highly-appointed 5-bedroom homes in the sought-after residential area of Lapworth comes courtesy of the experienced Avalanche Capital team, and has already received unsolicited offers from two keen buyers. The groundworks are already complete and building is due to be finished in October this year, at which point investors will be paid back capital and interest.

Investments are invited in the form of a loan, fully secured on the properties, and investors are free to choose the level of risk and return. The minimum investment is £5000 and the CapitalStackers platform is fully authorised and regulated by the FCA.

Unless otherwise stated, returns quoted are annualised and gross of tax.

CapitalStackers has completed the drawdown of £1.36 million funding for a prestigious development of eight homes, in the pretty Cheshire village of Malpas. Work is expected to start on site later this month and two properties are already under offer at the asking price.

The P2P property lending specialist also successfully negotiated £1.58 million of senior funding from a major high street bank, on behalf of the developer Orchard House. The gross development value of the scheme is £5.1 million.

CapitalStackers’ investors now look forward to returns of between 10.7% and 15.6% per annum over the next 22 months with lending at Loan to Value ratios from 55% to 73%.

Steve Robson of CapitalStackers comments, “Investors were invited, at the back end of last year, to lend into three layers and choose their own level of risk and return. Many are repeat investors, some of whom benefited from returns of up to 22.5% last year on an office to residential conversion we financed in York, however some are new investors, keen to dip their toe into the P2P property lending market.

“They are attracted not only by the high level of returns available, but the transparency and ease of the deals. We now have 150 investors on the books and rising, plus an exciting development pipeline. There are opportunities still available in the Malpas deal through our secondary market.”

Patrick Lomax, Founder and Director of Orchard House comments, “I have been impressed with CapitalStackers detailed knowledge of the property industry and finance market. We dealt with an experienced and senior team who absolutely delivered to the brief and exceeded our expectations. They have access to a wide pool of potential investors and delivered within relatively tight timeframes. We spoke to a number of debt advisors but none came close to the same level of service and professionalism.”

The Orchard House development is only a short walk from the 18th century market town of Malpas, Cheshire – a friendly village community within commuting distance of Chester and Wrexham and close to the Ofsted outstanding Bishop Heber High School.

A number of listed buildings dotted around the immediate area (including the Grade 1 Church of Saint Oswald), lend the site a rare traditional charm. And since the developer has in-house design capability, each of the homes can be partially bespoke to the purchaser’s requirements, which has sparked early interest from buyers with plots already being reserved off-plan.

CapitalStackers investment opportunities appeal to a broad spectrum of investors, from conservatively positioned pension funds to those with a higher risk-and-reward appetite. The minimum investment is £5,000.

And since the developer has in-house design capability, each of the homes can be partially bespoke to the purchaser’s requirements which has sparked early interest from buyers with plots already being reserved off-plan.

The Gross Development Value of the scheme is £5.1m, with Royal Bank of Scotland providing the senior funding of £1.58m.

This leaves plenty of room for CapitalStackers investors in this triple layer deal, with target returns pegged at between 10.3% and 16.9% per annum over an anticipated investment term of 22 months and with corresponding Loan to Value ratios of 55% to 73%. CapitalStackers investors will be secured by second charge behind RBS on the development site supplemented by a first charge on some additional property.plot-3-drawings

The development will naturally appeal to a broad spectrum of investors, from conservatively positioned pension funds to those with a higher risk-and-reward appetite, so early involvement is recommended. The minimum investment is £5,000.

The Oakapple Group – a Leeds development company – has begun converting the former 4 star Balmoral Hotel in Harrogate into 14 luxury apartments, with the help of funding raised by P2P lending platform CapitalStackers.

The 1image-living-space2,500 sq ft landmark Victorian building on Franklin Mount is being sensitively converted into one and two bedroom elegant apartments ranging from 600 to 1300 sq ft. Completion is scheduled for September 2017 and residents will enjoy on-site parking and original architectural features. The property was built around 1890 as three Victorian villas, converted into a guest house in 1981 and became the Balmoral Hotel in 1984. Oakapple received planning consent in June 2016.

For the developer, the funding solution allowed more effective use of equity. CapitalStackers introduced the senior debt from Hampshire Trust Bank of circa £2.3m and raised the additional £515,000 required within a week of posting the deal. The developer anticipates selling for in excess of £4m.

image-bathroomSteve Robson of CapitalStackers comments, “We are delighted to be playing a significant role in the sensitive conversion of such an imposing and historical building within the centre of Harrogate. Investors will look forward to receiving returns pegged at between 11% to 15.5% per annum within the next 14 months”.

CapitalStackers matches investors direct with developers seeking finance on specific projects. The company aims to plug the funding gap between typical bank debt and the developer’s equity. Investors typically receive double digit returns up to 20%.

This week we gave our investors a serious cause to celebrate when our residential development in York was completed two months ahead of schedule. Which means the shrewdness of all sixteen P2P investors paid off as they got their investment back within just 8 months and received returns of up to 22.5% per annum.

Foss Place

All the apartments at Foss Place, Foss Island Road in York had already been pre-sold during construction by developer Norstar Limited and the majority of investors, who lent between £5,000 and £1.73 million to the project, have re-invested into another CapitalStackers funded scheme, a residential conversion in the centre of Harrogate.

CapitalStackers’ offering is becoming increasingly popular with astute P2P investors –  the entire funding for Foss Place was completed in just 14 days from CapitalStackers’ engagement to the full loan being drawn down. The company now has in excess of 100 investors on its books and rising – and it’s easy to see why.

The idea is to plug the funding gap between typical bank debt and the developer’s equity – and it’s a win-win deal. Developers get access to the funding that dried up since the banks retrenched and it’s a great way for a wide range of investors to get involved with bigger commercial building projects, from housing to offices – schemes that would otherwise be out of the smaller investor’s reach (except through REITs or unit trusts, which would not allow them the same control over their investment).

CapitalStackers not only gives investors the choice of the development project they help fund but also lets them choose the risk level and associated return. Total financial transparency is maintained and typical returns are between 5% and 20% per annum paid out on completion of the project – usually around 12-24 months later. The minimum lend is just £5,000, and all loans are fully secured on the property being funded, with the extra benefit of high quality due diligence.

The Foss Place project is just another great example of the idea in action. CapitalStackers raised £2.25m loan monies to help Norstar Limited purchase and convert a disused office building into 6 studio and 18 one-bed apartments, with a predicted gross development value of £3.2 million and peak loan to value ratio of 76% including interest. On completion, the development sold out for £3.4m equating to an improved loan-to-value ratio of 71%.  The apartments were priced between £99,000 and £120,000.

Steve Robson of CapitalStackers comments, “We’re delighted to give our investors annualised returns of between 8.5% and 22.5% in just eight months, two months ahead of schedule. We arranged three layers of finance to Norstar: Layer 1 being £1.75m of senior debt; Layer 2 provided £350,000; and Layer 3 a further £150,000, at returns of 8.5%, 15% and 22.5% per annum respectively”.

So for any investors looking for a more appealing investment opportunity, CapitalStackers has surely come of age. There are a number of exciting projects in the pipeline with similar attractive risk and reward profiles. The minimum investment is £5,000 and there’s no upper limit. So why not register now and give your funds a boost over the next 12-24 months?

CapitalStackers – the P2P property development lending platform – has raised a £2.25m loan to fund the purchase and development of a 24-unit residential block in York.

The entire funding was completed in just 14 days from engagement to the full loan being raised, and the development by Norstar Limited is projected to have a Gross Development Value of £3.2m.  Investor returns are pegged at between 8.5% and 23% p.a.

Steve Robson of CapitalStackers commented:

“This is a huge milestone in our development and singles us out from the competition as being able to perform swiftly and professionally when circumstances dictate.  Working closely with our investors and professional advisers to deliver the whole package within an incredibly tight timescale is a fantastic achievement.”

CapitalStackers allows a wide range of investors to get involved with large commercial building projects, from housing to offices– schemes that would otherwise be out of their reach except through REITs or unit trusts. The idea is to plug the funding gap between typical bank debt and the developer’s equity. CapitalStackers invites P2P investors to take a stake at a risk and reward level they choose, with typical returns of between 5% and 20% p.a. on completion of the project, around 12-24 months later. With the minimum investment being just £5,000 fully secured on the property being funded and on the back of high quality due diligence, this is proving to be a very popular investment vehicle.

This is the latest in a string of new projects funded by CapitalStackers, who are currently inviting investment in an exciting new residential development in Birmingham. The loan sought is £1.9m and returns will be between 7.7% and 17.2% p.a. over a 15 month term.

The development address is: Foss Place, Foss Islands Road, York, YO31 7UJ.
