REDD source new development opportunities and private residences through its extensive contact list of agents and property professionals.
Once an opportunity is sourced, REDD conducts negotiations and manages the buying process with lawyers, consultants, surveyors and banks. REDD secures bank loans to finance the acquisition, development and completion of the project. The acquisition process also includes analysing a project’s economic and physical feasibility, delivering an initial business plan, conducting legal and administrative due diligence, and ensuring the property purchase is delivered.
REDD determines the amount and type of capital required to fund the initial acquisition, the interim holding costs, up to the delivery of the project. When analysing the required capital and its nature, we also determine the most efficient method to raise the required funds and then actually raise it. The financing component can be divided into three categories:
- Projections: What are the amounts and timing of expected capital expenditures, holding costs, and operating expenses as well as sales, rents and other income
- Financial management and reporting: How will the future capital flows be managed and to whom and in what form will they be reported?
- Capital formation and accumulation: Given the risk, returns and timing of the capital flows of the development, what is the appropriate capital model required for this specific investment.
Project costs are tracked closely against the pre-purchase appraisal with a capital expenditure model, performance updates and monthly reporting. If required, the team are experienced in managing the negotiation and coordination of development funding.
Once the development opportunity is secured, REDD assembles the design team and manages the development of the design. REDD handles all statutory approvals and legal development permissions needed to undertake the project.
With particular experience in the prime locations of London and Monaco, REDD is able to unlock complex and demanding sites with multiple external factors and stakeholders, therefore maximising returns for its investors.
