After completing a number of light refurbishments, flips and managing a few buy-to-lets, Phil Gordon wanted to move to bigger projects and step up his property game. However, just like many other aspiring property developers, the hurdle he came across was funding. Hefty deposits required for mortgages and high fees of bridging loans, make borrowing money a hard pill to swallow.
The solution presented itself to Phil after discovering Sourced Franchise and the hurdle of funding turned into merely an integral part of his projects – all taken care of by Sourced Capital. Unlike borrowing money from traditional sources, loans with Sourced Capital are based on the end value of projects, allowing franchisees to borrow up to 70% GDV. In most cases, that covers the purchase price of the property, materials, labour and any fees required to complete the project. This allows our Franchisees to complete large-scale projects with a minimal financial input of their own – maximising profits.
Sourced offers the only franchise opportunity of its kind in the industry. On top of access to funding, the Franchisees get access to over 70 training days a year, they receive ongoing support, exclusive materials and much more. All the additional benefits sealed the deal for Phil, and he joined the Network as Sourced Central Glasgow.
Phil’s first project as a Sourced Franchisee was a 4-bed refurbishment property, conveniently located in the outskirts of Glasgow. Phil borrowed £182,000 from Sourced Capital, which covered the full purchase price of £177,000 and allowed the Franchisee to use very little of his own money to complete the project. Once sold, the project will generate £40,000 in profit – that’s after paying back all of the interest to investors!
At the time of writing this article, the refurbishment works on Phil’s project were completed and the property is being advertised on the open market.
Phil says: “I joined Sourced mainly for the access to the funding, to enable me to get into larger projects than what I’ve done before. I also joined for the training, support and everything else that comes along with joining.”
