Darren Younger from Bricklet talks about fragmented property investing.How can fragmented property investing help property developers grow their business? It is a fledgling sector of the property industry that offers an interesting model to get people involved with property and an alternative funding model for getting projects completed.

Before we get to discussing fragmented investing, here’s a quick update on what I’ve been up to. I’m doing fine, just dealing with Melbourne going into lockdown for a second time due to corona virus which is a bit frustrating but at least the building industry is continuing to operate at this stage, so construction work can carry on, which is good as we are just starting construction on my townhouse project. In fact the builder is on site this week doing the initial set out work before they start doing the early site works. It’s exciting to see things happening on site after so many years of working on this project.

On my other townhouse project, work continues on the documentation and I have been exploring options for who might be best to build it. I’ve also been in discussions with the local council about changing the cross over alignment from a long convoluted path to one that is much shorter and efficient. Hopefully that is fruitful.

Otherwise, it is a strange time in the Melbourne property industry, with buyer activity subdued and a sense of apprehension in many sectors, but the market will bounce back it just depends on how long it takes.

Okay, on to today’s guest, Darren Younger from Bricklet. This is a discussion about fragmented property investing and how it can benefit property developers. What is fragmented investing you ask? Well listen in and find out.

In this discussion you will discover how developers can fund their projects using the fragmented model, how you can save time and money using Bricklet and what it means for potential projects you may have.

Keep an ear out for how you could use fragmenting as an alternative funding solution for your next project.

Lessons for property developers

Here’s a couple of things I took away from the discussion.

1. Could a different funding model help you increase the velocity of your property development projects?

Getting your project funded is an ongoing challenge for many developers, and as lending environments tighten it might be worthwhile looking around at what other models you have available to get your projects finished. Alternative models may also help you to complete projects quicker and increase the velocity at which you operate.

2. Could keeping a share of your completed property development project help with your wealth accumulation strategy?

Often developers sell up all their stock, realize the profit and then roll over into the next project, leaving behind the future capital growth of their finished product. But what if you could keep a portion of that stock and let it grow over time, how could that help you grow wealth over the longer term? It might be worth considering…

Okay, if you enjoyed that chat about fragmentation, then you might want to go back to episode 65 and have a listen to my chat with Fabian Demarco about how private funding may be another option to get your project out of the ground. Fabian outlined how often private capital can get you started and finished quicker than bank funding. Lots of interesting topics in that discussion with Fabian so be sure to have a listen.
