Our motto: ‘you build, we fund’. Case study

Our motto at Blend Network is ‘you build, we fund’. We are here to take the stress out of funding so that you, as a property developer and investor, can focus on what you do best. With that in mind, we wanted to share with you a case study of a recent deal we funded in Coventry to give you an idea of the types of deals we regularly fund.

The project was a rundown 3-bedroom, two storey terraced house near Coventry’s University Hospital. The developer wanted to convert it into a 5-bed House of Multiple Occupancy (HMO) by extending the back and the roof. Here’s a visual description of the project:

In terms of costs, here’s a snapshot of the deal:

In terms of the Gross Development Value (GDV), here’s a snapshot of the options:

  • Resale:
  • Brick and Mortar £255,000
  • Rental:
  • PCM £2,500 (£500 per room)
  • Gross Yield:
  • 76%

Based on the above information, we were able to provide a £165,000 loan to this developer. The loan was funded in minutes!

We were able to offer the following key ratios:

  • Loan-To-Cost (LTC): 80%
  • Loan-To-Value (LTV) Day 1: 68%
  • Loan-To-GDV (LTGDV): 72.5%
