Update from the developer:
In Madrid, on July 21, 2020
Several months have passed since our last communication, and since then many things have changed due to the impact the COVID 19 pandemic has had on our lives, which is why, before informing you of the latest relevant events related to our project we ask that you receive our greatest wish for good health for you and your loved ones. From the proclamation of the state of alarm to the present day, we have focused all our efforts on two essential objectives: obtaining bank financing, which should allow us to start the work faster, and maintaining the trust of our clients, since the project was 94% done. From a commercial point of view, we are pleased to indicate that the project is 100% sold, despite the logical fluctuations we have had in the harshest period of the state of alarm. From the first day, we assumed that transparency and daily contact with customers would be our best weapons to deal with the situation. From the point of view of financing, the situation has been different, since all the banks with which we have commercial relations have focused their efforts on the strategic direction set by the government, which have responded to the call effect caused by the public guarantees attached to certain financial products among which property development is not found. A direct consequence of this has been the temporary suspension of this very specific type of financing that lasts from the days preceding the state of alarm and that is maintained, with exceptions, today, since some banking entities have recently confirmed their desire to start the normal course of their activities on these days.
For this reason, we hope to inform you shortly of the confirmation of obtaining financing from one of the entities with which the negotiations are most advanced: Bankinter, Caja Rural or IberCaja.We also want to confirm that the purchase option regarding the land subject to the project has been conveniently extended in accordance with the situation and that the negotiations with the construction company are fully completed, which will allow us to proceed immediately, from the confirmation by some of the entities to obtain financing, the final acquisition of the land, the signing of private contracts with customers, and the start of works. We do not want to leave the opportunity to inform you that the second phase of the project is progressing adequately, having obtained today a commercialization rate of 60%, which will undoubtedly allow us to shorten the 6-month period initially planned between the firm to rethink the two phases. Negotiations with banks take into account the possibility of financing the two phases with the aforementioned time difference. As a sign of our commitment to you, and in accordance with our value of being transparent, we will inform you periodically of all significant incidents in future communications. We do not want to miss the opportunity without strongly thanking you for the trust you continue to show us. Best regards.
Update January 3rd 12:32 CET: 2 more houses were pre-sold, 14/16 are already pre-sold in total.
Update January 3rd 11:44 CET: this project appears to be funded in Urbanitae platform, because Urbanitae has given additional position to our investors.
New investment opportunity into semi-detached house project from Urbanitae in a province of Cadiz. This project already has 12 out of 16 pre-sales, however, the deposited amount is 3.5K EUR each, which is low, but due to count of the reservations in a given area, is high. The given sales price provides around 20% margin of safety for the investors.
There are no new developments to compare the price with but, sales prices for the reservations are around 1.4K per square meter, comparisons with used private houses in the area- 1,574 EUR per square meter and 2,203 EUR per square meter. Equity investments are highest risk, you can participate not only in the upside but also potentially in the downside.
From Urbanitae, we present a new project that consists of the development of a residential complex of 16 new construction townhouses in El Puerto de Santa María, Cádiz . We leave you the link to the promotion website:Pinares Puerto
The Port of Santa María is a city within the province of Cádiz, it is the fifth most populous municipality in the province and the 15th in Andalusia. Its main economic activity is the tertiary sector, highlighting mainly the tourism and services sector.
The project is located in the lands of San José del Pino located in front of Vallealto, on the edge of the Rancho Linares pine forest. A privileged place for its large green areas that is also known as 'Puerto Alto'. Enjoy a situation with direct access to the N-IV motorway from the “501” roundabout. The project is located 5 minutes from the center of the city and 7 km from the beach area.
The promoter of this opportunity, CARPIO CAPITAL , is a Madrid real estate company with developments in the Cadiz area. Its managers have a professional experience linked for more than 30 years to the real estate field both nationally and internationally. Within the documentation area you can find information about the promoter.
The project has a capital gains strategy , which consists of an alliance with the developer to develop the complex 16 free homes, primarily for first homes. The developers have signed a purchase option with the owners of the land. The works license was requested in September 2019 and it is expected to be definitively obtained in the coming weeks. It currently has reservation contracts signed with 12 buyers . At the time of obtaining the license and buying the lots, the reservation will be formalized in contract.
The proposed promotion consists of 16 houses organized in two rows of 8 terraced houses. All homes have the same typology of 3/4 bedroom and 4 bathrooms. They have parking spaces on the same plot and a private garden area. Each house has approximately 135 m2 built.
The operation will be structured through a company already constituted exclusively for this project by the promoter. In said company, a capital increase will be made where both the developer and the Urbanitae investors will contribute the necessary capital for the purchase of the 16 plots where the promotion is located. The operation has already been submitted to a financial institution that has shown interest in financing the construction; given that at the time of applying for such financing, the plot will be acquired by the company free of charge, it will have a building permit and with a high degree of homes signed in contract. The remaining four homes, the developer plans to sell them during construction execution.
The promoter will be dedicated to the integral management of the promotion and will also be an investor of the project, contributing around 26% of the total capital of the investment.
There are several reasons to invest in this project:
- 12 of the 16 homes are already reserved . The demand is aligned for this type of housing at the prices set by the developer.
- Investment opportunity in a new construction promotion project .
- The total estimated net return by the promoter is 41.1% in 22 months.
- The project will be promoted by CARPIO CAPITAL , with great work experience in the area. It currently has 2 more operations in the same location.
- The promoter of the work invests its own capital in it, which aligns the interests of all the agents involved in the investment
The developer expects to generate total revenue of 3,220,960 euros with the sale of 16 homes, which would be an estimated net gain for the investor (after taxes) of around the 41.1%. Currently, 75% of the total number of homes has been reserved , which represents more than 75% of the total volume of expected income from the developer.
A variable remuneration structure has been proposed with the promoter. It is a successful commission in favor of the promoter; If the annual internal net rate of return of the project exceeds 22%, the excess will be distributed in proportion to 65% for the Promoter and 35% for Urbanitae investors.
A market study has been carried out to determine if the sales prices raised by the promoter are reasonable. Given the great demand already demonstrated in the promotion (12 units reserved), the developer does not foresee great difficulty in selling the other four remaining homes. You can see more information in the documentation, " Sales Witnesses ", where you will find a list of homes for sale in the area.
There are currently several promotions underway. There is no similar witness of new construction in the area for this type of terraced house.
WHEN WILL I RECOVER THE INVESTED MONEY?
The estimated term of this project is 22 months .
- The planned deadlines for the promotion are as follows:
- December-January 2019 obtaining works license.
- March 2020 start of works.
- June 2021, end of construction.
- July– September 2021, first occupancy license and home delivery.
- October 2021, liquidation of the company.
It is important to keep in mind that in any real estate development the terms may vary both upwards and downwards.
All investments carry a risk. We detail the clearest risks we have identified for this project:
- Increase in the deadlines foreseen in the project, due to construction delays.
- Deviation of fixed costs associated with investment, unforeseen in construction.
- Risk of not reaching the expected sales rates and consequently the delay in terms.
- Risk of not getting the expected sales prices in the promoter's business plan.
