Property Development Finance Squeeze As Lenders Fly To Quality

A Property Development Finance Squeeze Is A “Flight To Quality”

A lot of property developers don’t understand that a pre-sale isn’t always a pre-sale. If you do you are way ahead in getting the funding you need.


Australia’s banks are under pressure from the regulator APRA to “clean up” their loan books. The easiest way to do this with property development lending is to demand a greater percentage and quality of pre-sales before advancing funds.

APRA warns on commercial property lending standards

Australia’s powerful banking regulator has fired another warning shot at the commercial property sector, saying it will further investigate lending standards and consider “additional guidance” if necessary.

Wayne Byres, chair of the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority, on Friday flagged “further tightening” from banks in the $1.5 trillion residential mortgage market, a crackdown some experts believe is behind a gentle slowdown in residential real estate in the past month.

“That should not be read to imply we have any less interest in the quality of commercial property lending,” Mr Byres said. Via
