In today's competitive residential real estate markets, the ability to secure financing at short notice and on flexible terms gives property developers an edge. Their businesses benefit from our awareness that every deal is unique and requires a tailored service to capitalise on commercial opportunities as they arise.
We have extensive experience of providing financial support for a wide range of investment, construction and development transactions. These involve buying, building and refurbishing residential properties throughout Germany, including the preservation of listed buildings.
Property developers come to Westend Bank because we understand the challenges and opportunities in this demanding sector as well as for our commitment to a relationship-driven approach. We meet their short-term liquidity needs, especially at the beginning of their projects, by providing flexible solutions and bridge loans.
