CrowdProperty is a specialist peer-to-peer lender that provides quick and easy finance to property professionals.
Founded in 2014, CrowdProperty works as a marketplace for property investments by bringing together investors and property professionals who need to organise finance for their projects. The process starts with a property professional who submits a loan application to CrowdProperty. If the project meets CrowdProperty’s strict requirements, the project details get added to an online lending platform. When the project goes live on the CrowdProperty platform, individuals can invest in the project with the expectation of receiving back the money they invested plus interest.
CrowdProperty is run by property experts committed to helping SME property professionals access the finance they need.
