New proprietary Australian finance platform for property developers announced.
Support from top Australian lender, plus major venture capital investment.
Fast, transparent property and development finance available via 60+ accredited non-bank lenders.
Streamlines the funding process and reduces bottlenecks from usual time-consuming loan application processes.
Borrowers given full, accurate financing costs upfront, delivering funding certainty.
Wefund is pleased to announce the launch of their unique, proprietary finance platform, which gives property developers quicker access to multiple non-bank lenders. Their unique and innovative software streamlines the funding process to give faster, more reliable and secure funding. Version 1 is now available, with a strong release pipeline planned for the next 12 months.
Marshall Condon, Wefund Co-Founder, says “The Australian property development finance sector is bogged down with time-consuming loan application processes. In many cases it also lacks transparency and integrity. This means borrowers often face hidden fees, exhaustive application processes, lenders with no funds and offers being amended at the last minute, leaving them at the mercy of lenders.”
Wefund’s cutting edge solution promises to turn this one-sided arrangement on its head by reimagining the loan process between developers and lenders. It presents clear and transparent options that show borrowers their true funding costs upfront and gives funding certainty by providing access to over 40 accredited non-bank lenders.
The cutting edge platform gathers all the required loan information in a single portal and presents loan applications to lenders as opportunities in an easy-to-digest way. This makes it easy for developers to review funding options and for prospective lenders to make an informed decision on the commercial, development, mezzanine or bridging finance that’s being applied for.
Wefund is more than just a technology platform, however. Their specialist team reviews and helps structure applications before they are presented to the most appropriate lenders on the portal. After reviewing all the information, lenders are then free to submit their terms to finance a deal.
The Wefund team oversees the entire process and applies its skills and experience to ensure the best possible outcome for both borrowers and lenders.
