Negative Gearing, State & Local Government Taxes and Policies of Critical Concern To Property Developers/Investors - Development Finance Partners
DF Partners' Principal, Baxter Gamble, said the survey also identified that for more than half the respondents (54%) 'obtaining finance from their banks' was one of the biggest issues confronting them at present.
Generating enough pre-sales was an issue for 52% while 46% said property buyers being able to obtain funds to settle was problematic. "Interestingly, 76% of respondents said that in the past 12 months they had investigated obtaining finance from non-bank lenders. Mezzanine, joint venture, preferential equity and overseas funds were all investigated," Mr Gamble said. "It is quite clear that developers see the possible end of negative gearing as a major roadblock in continuing to attract investors to buy into their developments," Mr Gamble added.
