Understanding the true development potential of your vendors property


cpc-logo  February 2019

In real estate sales vendors are relying on the exclusive agents’ ability to understand their properties  “highest and best use” – in a tough market even more so.
Historically local agents have shied away from researching and fully understanding planning controls such as site FSR, height limits and permitted uses under current zonings. This should be part of any agents core skill set, providing additional services around town planning and development to better assist their vendor is key in adding value.
A few years ago I enquired with a local agent about a prime dual fronted site in an exclusive beachside suburb of Sydney. The agent didn’t even mention the redevelopment potential of the block even though a few doors up the exact same sized block was under construction to build a duplex. This agent didn’t take the time to research his listing to its full extent, not fully marketing to developers really sold the listing short.
Agents need to ensure the best outcome for their vendors and fully understand and actively market the development potential of their listing if applicable. Simply placing STCA on your signboard should only be the start of your marketing plan to developers.
Attending local community events on potential rezonings, understanding the local LEP and DCP controls and having a good understanding of state government’s mandated growth areas will ensure you can advise your vendor of the potential current and long term value of their asset.

Having a go-to town planner that can look at your listing and provide you with a quick planning overview is also a great way to ensure you haven’t missed anything.


Your vendor will appreciate you explaining all of their options and providing them with as much information as possible so they can make informed decisions. You may be able to assist them with a short term equity release solution to allow them to hold their asset until the market improves.

If your vendor is open to development upside risk you could discuss the strategy of selling the site with DA approval. An alternate strategy could be to examine the “optioning up” of the property to a developer which could maximise the sale price in today’s market.

You can be sure they will appreciate your advice given you have demonstrated you haven’t just gone for the hard sell option.


Our mission is to provide greater opportunity to property industry stakeholders through financial technology. Our platform links like-minded property investors, developers and financial professionals allowing superior networking and business reach resulting in better deals.

Australia Surges in P2P Balance Sheet Lending



24th September 2017

New research showing Australia has risen to become the second largest alternative finance market in the Asia Pacific sends a strong signal to the world about the underlying strength of Australia’s fintech and business environment.

Findings from a joint study by KPMG, the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance and the Australian Centre for Financial Studies, released today, reveals that Australia’s alternative finance market size grew by 53 per cent from 2015 to 2016 and has now reached US$609.6 million.

According to the Second Asia Pacific Alternative Finance Industry Report, Australia has leap-frogged Japan to become the second largest alternative lending market (behind China) across the Asia-Pacific.

FinTech Australia CEO Danielle Szetho said the report’s findings showed how the Australian fintech industry – in areas such as invoice financing, balance sheet lending, peer-to-peer lending and crowdfunding – was servicing the nation’s strong economy and the needs of growing small and medium-sized businesses.

“The demand for our products and services is strong and our fintech lenders are rising to the challenge. This broad-based reports showcases the cumulative efforts of government and regulatory bodies like the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) and Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) to support the accelerating momentum behind alternative finance in Australia,” Ms Szetho said.

Selling your Development Site? 5 Things you should consider…..





September 2017 

Written by David Lovato

More and more developers these days are asking themselves should I sell one (or more) of my sites and consolidate operations? Why would a developer sell their lively hood? Are they in trouble? Are they too stretched? What’s happening to their business?

There are many reasons why a developer may consider selling a site (raw or approved) but they have usually decided to curb expansion plans or had unforeseen delays on existing sites or need to free up capital to complete other projects. If the developer goes about it the wrong way it can greatly tarnish their brand and market perception.

Here are 5 things to consider before listing your development site with an agent:

1. Is there any demand for my site?

If your site is located in an area of future oversupply be prepared to not find a buyer. Banks and private lenders are ruling out funding certain suburbs of Sydney. Limited ability for an incoming developer to obtain finance means your pool of buyers is extremely limited.

2. What’s my pricing strategy? Can I still make money on the site?

If you have purchased a site within the last few years and got a DA approval then you know exactly how much the site owes you.  Site values peaked in 2015 so many sites bought at the peak may not re sell for the same value. You should trying put aside your emotions, agents will always pump up the sale price but talk to valuers and development managers. They know how much a site is worth, you should be ready to accept a fair price. Don’t get greedy or your strategy may backfire.

3. Do I really want to advertise this sale with a major agency?

Signing an agency agreement with one of the big agents is like pulling your pants down. You are exposing your business to speculation that things are not going as planned and you will pay for the privilege. You will be assured of a vast database of buyers (none qualified) and you will run an expensive print and media campaign. A scattergun approach that exposes your business in this delicate situation is not the answer. A targeted and swift off market campaign is a better strategy to keep you divestment plans private, find qualified buyers and free up your capital ASAP.

4. My site is DA approved, it must be worth more?

In todays market more often than not developers are looking for raw sites, the market has peaked and smart developers are looking at sites for the next cycle. Expert developers will have their own brand and strategy and your DA adds no value to the transaction. The time and effort spent on getting the approval has no doubt been considerable but putting emotions aside and seeing it through the buyers eyes will help manage expectations.

5. Understand your buyers financial position

Once your site is for sale you will receive a wide range of offers. Some will be high and others extremely low and opportunistic. You should take a vested interest in reviewing the companies behind all of your offers, you must understand your bidders. It is likely a high bid is from an operator who is willing to pay more to ride out the cycle, the risk is their financial capacity to settle. Most land banking developers will not need finance and they will not pay over the odds – they are probably your underbidders.
