topic and prompt
norway has vaulted to the top ranks of foreign u.S. Commercial real estate buyers as its $870 billion sovereign-wealth fund, the world’s largest, acquires buildings from new york to san francisco. The country has spent more than $3.2 billion on u.S. Real estate this year, including the assumption of debt, according to research firm real capital analytics inc. And statements from the wealth fund. That makes it the biggest international buyer after canada. The total is more than double the amount spent in all of 2013, when norway ranked no. 6 for property purchases.
Norway, which has a smaller population than new york city, is spending billions of dollars on properties globally as its wealth fund seeks to meet a target to invest as much as 5 percent of its assets in real estate. In the u.S., prices for top-quality buildings in major markets are being driven up by foreign funds that often are willing to accept lower yields than domestic buyers in return for a safe place to put their money, according to research firm green street advisors inc.

Real Estate Development
I have a 5 bedroom property in somerset uk that has full planning permission to double in size plus a 3 bedroom garage with accommodation above. Set in just under an acre of land in a semi rural location close to shops, schools and town center. Current value of the existing property is estimated at £500,000 and the development is estimated to cost around £300,000. Scope for further outbuildings are and purchase of adjoining 6 acre field is also possible.
Advice on how best to creatively monetize this opportunity with the minimum of stress would be appreciated. For example:
a partnership to raise the finance could be considered but the variables on how this should be agreed are many.
Sell the whole opportunity to a developer with a caveat on a percentage of the resale price after completion of the development.
Any other ideas or advice would be most welcome.+2 Other Responses
