Real estate cash reserves kept at hand

Despite the credit crunch there is capital out there

As a consequence of the credit crunch numerous real estate developers are struggling to find financing for existing or future projects. Typical sources have dried up with banks unwilling to lend at the same rates as before, leaving developers with great opportunities that cannot materialize, with partially completed projects and debts that require refinancing.

“Despite the fact that conditions are quite uneasy there is capital available. Developers need to be guided in the right direction to facilitate their entrance into financial vehicles which recognize the potential, have the means and are willing to commit to real estate projects” according to Giancarlo d’Elia, CFO.

Investment funds have also been going through a lot of difficulties to raise capital in the past year. Normally this would result in less funds to be invested but this is not the case. As a matter of fact the cash reserves are still staying on quite significant levels. The reason is that the investment criteria became more selective than everand therefore less project have been finances.
