CrowdProperty empowers developers to get access to specialist finance with ease, speed, certainty, transparency, and expertise, while wholesale investors can earn up to 8.5% p.a. target interest returns* from loans typically paid back in 6-18 months (subject to project and loan structure). Since launching in the UK in 2013, CrowdProperty has lent over £229 million ($401m) to property developers, funded the construction of over 2,480 homes worth over £532 million ($932m), and delivered zero percent capital losses.

There is inevitable uncertainty in the property and financial markets at the moment. Tech stocks are finally coming off their sugar high, and property prices continue to decline. It’s not all doom and gloom, though. This month’s state of the market blog shows there are bargains for small-scale developers looking for new deals, and with that comes a need for finance which, in turn, can be an option for investors who want to invest in project loans.

Here at CrowdProperty, we’ve never been busier and are currently launching a flurry of new projects for investment. Check out the projects now funding below and also see what’s coming soon to an investment platform near you!

This month we also have a blog about build-to-rent for small-scale developers, and an article about the landmark housing announcement in the recent federal budget.

In other news, if you’re not a wholesale investor, we’ll be welcoming you to the platform soon as we move to become open to all investors. You can fill in an expression of interest to hear about that when we launch in the near future.

Finally, two community announcements: First, we’re looking forward to joining the Property Development Australia group for their Christmas party later this month — we’re delighted to sponsor the prizes at this highly anticipated event — we’ll hopefully see many of you there. Lastly, we’re hiring! If you know anyone who has experience in credit finance and/or property development, business development in finance/funds sectors, or operations management for fintech/fin services, point them our way…

Enjoy,

State of the Market 

The Australian property market continued to struggle in October, ratcheting up its sixth consecutive month of home price declines. The Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) monetary policy is the key factor behind ailing property prices, with governor Philip Lowe signaling at least another rate hike to come.
