Balmain Private have provided a residual stock loan to refinance five recently completed residential apartments located at 25 Trent Street, Glen Iris in Victoria.
According to Balmain Private’s head of distribution, Tom Sherston, the $2.2 million loan was syndicated between seven investors via the Balmain Private digital investment platform and oversubscribed within 45 minutes. The investment term is 12 months and forecast return 8.65% net with distributions paid monthly to investors.
“Since Balmain settled the Loan, the Borrower has completed the sale of two of the security apartments, which reduced the (Loan to Value) LVR from 70% to 65%.”
“Balmain decided to hold the investment internally until these two apartments settled to remove unnecessary short-term capital repayment issues for investors investing via the Balmain Private platform”.
The Trentwood complex is situated within Glen Iris, an established residential area 10kms south-east of Melbourne’s CBD and within close proximity to schools, shops, parks, arterial roads adjacent to Burwood train station.
The Borrower is an entity established specifically for the development of ‘Trentwood’, and is part of a large, privately owned development group based in Melbourne. They currently have a pipeline of $1.2b in projects and on average are developing 650 dwellings per year.
“Investors can register on line via the Balmain Private website and once an investment account has been opened, can invest in high quality, lowly geared, syndicated loans, starting in increments of $10,000.”
“Since 2012 Balmain Private has delivered an average of 7.9% net across 150 stand-alone Sub-Trusts totaling an aggregate loan amount of over $500,000,000”.
Qualitas' first "pure property debt" listed investment trust, the Qualitas Real Estate Income has raised another $35 million in funds to issue more commercial loans.
Commercial property isn’t a pure income asset class like cash or fixed interest but it has a few advantages over other forms of income-based investing, starting with the yield. Right now, the APN AREIT Fund, for example, offers a distribution yield of 6.08%, paid monthly.
