Technology is Changing the World of Finance
The Stonegate Opensource Real Estate Equity and Debt Syndication Platform addresses the demand for direct passive investment in a growing real estate market.
“Having worked with developers for over twenty years we find projects to finance by syndicating debt and equity opportunities with investors interested in real estate development”.
What developers often miss is a chance to tell their story to investors. .When our Sponsors elect to syndicate debt or equity for a project we develop and present a strong and well-thought-through spreadsheet that explains in-depth the sponsors development costs and demonstrate how your money is being applied to these activities, which will increase the likelihood that you’re planning for success.
It also tells the senior lender and investors that we are deliberate in filtering all the potential situations that could impact a project’s development.
Being able to generate concrete numbers to investors does not go overlooked. If developers try and guess when they don’t have reliable numbers, they can get caught flatfooted.
We often question their forecasted returns, or their ability to determine effective IRRs. We believe in offering real expectations.
When lenders and equity partners look at a deal, they want to know that the cash flow from the project is going to cover all expenses, the debt service, and produce a return.
Developers often overlook a few significant elements in their spreadsheets (many don’t have a complete plan) and without complete Excel modeling a project is rejected from the onset.
Just as important as the numbers in the spreadsheet, the numbers never tell the whole story. Being a developer archaeologist and identifying the painstaking details of a project can make the difference between our taking a pass on the project or having the project become our next investment.
