Purpose of the loan
We present a new project that consists of a loan for the development of residential development in Madrid of a building with 9 homes, 6 parking spaces and 9 storage rooms. The developer has already tested the commercial potential and has 5 of the 9 reserved homes.
The development is located in the Lucero neighborhood, within the La Latina district, southwest of Madrid. Specifically, it is located on Calle Alhambra 18, 300 meters from the Lucero metro station and just 15 minutes from the Casa de Campo in Madrid. The neighborhood has a population of around 38,000 inhabitants and has direct communication with Madrid Centro (metro, suburban, buses, A5, M30 and M40).
The promoter of this opportunity is HOME FIRST, a company created and directed by specialists from the world of investment and promotion, with more than 15 years of experience. His work focuses on a market niche of small promotions between 8 and 20 units, which are not attractive for the large promoters and common investment funds in the sector.
The developer has previously worked with Urbanitae on the Hortaleza Project.
The investment is structured as a fixed-rate loan granted to the vehicle company created by HOME FIRST, HOME FIRST ALHAMBRA 18 SL (exclusively for this project) so that the developer can acquire the plot (on which a contract has been signed with the property). de deposit ) and develop the work. The entire project will be financed through a combination of sources: a part of the Urbanitae loan, the promoter's own funds and contributions from clients' accounts, so the project does not need to resort to bank financing.
The promotion consists of 9 homes in a 6-story building; in the basement, there are 6 parking spaces and 9 storage rooms. All the houses have two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a terrace except for the penthouses, which have one bedroom and one bathroom. The penthouses have a terrace of 20 m 2 , and the ground floor, with a private patio of 45 m 2 . In addition, the project includes a community garden of almost 60 m 2 .
The commercialization of the homes has already begun and is aimed at first homes. The project was presented for approval in April 2019 and is very close to receiving the building license, so the developer plans to start the works during the second quarter of 2021. The promoter has signed a deposit contract on the ground.
This operation will be structured via debt: Urbanitae Investors will grant a fixed-rate loan to the company created by the promoter exclusively for the project: HOME FIRST ALHAMBRA 18, SL The financing will go to the acquisition of the site (the promoter has a deposit contract with the property) and the financing of the works, together with the contributions of the buyers. The developer has reserved the possibility of canceling the loan early (with a penalty) in the event of contracting a developer loan with a bank.
The main characteristics of the debt are (more information in the Loan Report document) :
Total or partial early amortization will be allowed in two-time windows:
The loan guarantees are instrumentalized through a Guarantee Agent, external to Urbanitae. The role of this figure allows creditors to take collateral in their own name. The Guarantee Agent is involved in the loan granting process and appears as a representative of all Urbanitae investors to clarify access to the guarantees themselves. In this case, the loan guarantees are:
There are several reasons to invest in this project:
A market study has been carried out to determine if the sales prices raised by the developer are reasonable.
Although there are new construction developments in the area, all of them contemplate sales prices higher than the HOME FIRST project. In addition, the building has an elevator and parking spaces, both of which are very scarce in the area and therefore represent an added value to the project.
You can see more information in the documentation, Sales Witnesses, where you will find a list of homes for sale in the area.
