Centaur is able to provide up to $20m in debt funding (including land and construction finance) for Australian capital city based real estate projects.
Centaur invests its own funds. Borrowers are dealing directly with the lender. We are not a mortgage broker or a syndicator of loans.
Over 70% of our loans are to repeat borrowers and we are continually looking to build new borrower relationships. Our rates may be more expensive than a bank but our speed, commerciality and ability to provide certainty of funding, sets us apart.
If you are seeking to access funding for a real estate project our mandate is summarized below. Centaur is happy to work with brokers/originators and will pay referral fees on a case by case basis.
