Video series: In conversation with Property Investor News

Last month, Property Investor News magazine editor, Richard Bowser, visited the office to catch up with Business Development Manager, Tom Madden. Priding themselves on delivering market-leading news and analysis for the discerning property investor, Property Investor News was keen to gauge our views on the direction of the market, our emerging product range and what’s in store for the property market in the year ahead.

Lending to property developers

In this video, Tom highlights our distinct lending model and explains how it differs to other lenders. Touching on our range of products, he looks at how breadth of experience in the short-term finance market has allowed us to identify the problems, and more importantly identify the opportunities, that can make a real difference to the way in which property entrepreneurs access funding for their projects.

Trends in the wider market

In the aftermath of wider market uncertainty caused by Brexit, Tom and Richard discuss how property developers are adapting to changes in the wider market. Together, they identify the opportunities of looking nationwide in terms of investing in property, the range of products now available to property entrepreneurs as well as the importance of creating additional value in a competitive marketplace.

The importance of auction finance

‘We’ve always seen auction as being a key area for us in where we can help property investors’

Tom discusses the importance of having a pragmatic approach when it comes to lending. One of the key differentiators he points out between a specialist lender like LendInvest and the big banks is the personalised approach we’re able to take. He adds that having decision makers always on hand allows us to make the right call for our borrower’s individual case as quickly and pragmatically as possible. Tom continues:

‘We pride ourselves on quick turnarounds, pragmatic decisions and that we can be flexible in the way that we view different projects’.
