At the moment real estate crowdfunding in the UK is flourishing and attracting serious and well-standing investors who wish to diversify their portfolios. Property crowdfunding in the UK has great potential to flourish even further as it continually shows stable value increase and good HPI results. According to the official statistics from the UK House Price Index Summary in January 2018, the average house prices in the UK have increased by 4.9% in the year to January 2018.

There are several reasons why house crowdfunding in the UK became so popular:
•   The opportunity to use limited funds. The minimum investment in the property crowdfunding is much smaller than the traditional investment tradition.
•   Changes in the European legislation, consequent housing crisis, and demographic challenges allowed real estate crowdfunding to grow even further.
•   Property crowdfunding in the UK is a perfect way to diversify the investment portfolio.
•   Investors can access and participate in several projects, which considerably lowers the investment risks.
•   Higher return rates from the real estate assets.

Investing - General (not P2P) / Is property crowdfunding a good idea?
« on: August 09, 2018, 11:00:00 PM »
Property crowdfunding  appeared in the past 5 years as an alternative real estate investment opportunity. The main objective of the property crowdfunding was to eliminate the disadvantages of traditional RE investments. What are those disadvantages, exactly? The main downside of the traditional RE investment model was extremely expensive prices for the property.
As a result, only selected wealthy individuals were able to make investments in the real estate. Ordinary middle class investors had no opportunity to purchase property due to its skyrocketing prices and had to find other, more affordable investment opportunities. Other disadvantages of traditional RE investments included more volatility, worse liquidity and limited opportunity to diversify the investment portfolio.
Current property crowdfunding platforms try to solve all these problems because now investors are able to pool their money with other investors, thus considerably reducing the needed amount of investment and diversifying their portfolio. Some platforms even created two-sided marketplace so that the platform could provide services to both the investors and REA. In general there are much more advantages of the property crowdfunding compared to traditional RE investment models.  ;) Learn more:
Real estate crowdfunding in numbers
Do you consider opportunities to invest into realty? Here is some food for thought regarding crowdinvesting as a prosperous option.
A couple of years ago very few people in Europe knew about real estate crowdfunding (RECF) Europe was over-performed by its Western neighbour – the US – in this area of alternative finance since the Jumpstart Our Business Start-up Act (JOBS Act) started in 2012.
The situation started to change after 2012, when different models of business crowdsourcing (equity based, peer to peer lending etc.) crossed the Atlantic. In the post-crisis period, since the slump of the realty market in 2008, European countries followed the USA in trying to support small business initiatives. At the same time the question of retirement funds stands sharp in some countries, actualised by demographic challenges and the pension reform debates.
While in 2015, the USA grabbed 56% of the market and Europe got 42% of all crowdsourced projects. The Massolution RECF Industry 2015 Report predicted that Europe would reach the $1 billion record. It was added, that the spreading popularity of realty platforms among investors makes it a profitable way of raising capital
