June 2017 – Monthly Property Development Update

Here is the June 2017 round-up of our current developments and how they are progressing with accompanying build photos.

HCD1 – Regent Street

We have sold two more houses, so four are now proceeding to exchange with one unit left to sell. We also have potential interest in the remaining house from two parties.

HCD2 – No. 10 Alderley Edge

Excellent news as we have now been granted planning permission on four apartments along with payment of all costs incurred in the appeal process.  The development is continuing to progress in all other ways.

HCP156 – Station Road, Marple

All additional works have now been completed on this lovely house. Julian Wadden Estate Agents have uploaded the property details to Right Move and other property sites.  Several viewings have taken place but no offers as yet.

We have organised for the watering of the grass when there are dry spells and the lawns to be cut regularly to keep it looking pristine.  We are also constantly nipping into the house to change flowers in vases and keep it fresh for viewings. Other than that this is in the hands of the agents now – there is nothing more we can do and have to sit and wait for an interested buyer – fingers and toes crossed.

HCD3 – Woodlands

We have had to switch contractors as the one appointed (due to personal financial difficulties) had stopped paying his builders. There is no liability attached to us for this, but it has caused a delay of a couple of weeks.  Work is now progressing on the site again, and there is moderate interest from buyers which we do not expect to increase until the show home is finished.

HCD4 – Gratrix Park

Work is progressing on schedule with no issues to report.

HCD5 – Bank Chambers

The roof is leaking and needs to be repaired so we are costing this out at present. We are also still dealing with planning permission to convert the lower floor – sadly these things are never quick or easy to progress.

Fortunately the ground floor conversion does not impact on progress on the rest of the building.  The area around this building continues to improve with one of the best restaurants in the Manchester area having opened up recently just around the corner – “Where the Light Gets In”, which recently received rave reviews in the Guardian, and is seriously worth a visit if you are in the area.

HCD7 – Brundred Farm, Prestbury

This is still in planning appeal stage. We are more confident of success after the success of the appeal with No 10 Alderley Edge.

HCD10 – Bollin Heights

Apartments 1-4 are almost 90% complete on the build.  The doors are taking a little longer as they are made to measure doors.  The show apartment is completed and ready for viewings. There are some issues with obtaining bricklayers (which is an industry-wide problem) and this is slowing matters down a little.

Don’t forget, if you need any help with the investment process, or have any questions, you can call our client account team, Nigel or Damian, on 0161 667 4264, or email them on: [email protected]

What Makes The House Crowd Different?

What Makes The House Crowd Different?

Property crowdfunding is a fast growing industry within the investment and savings sector. Inspired by our model and our success as the first property crowdfunding platform in the world, many imitators have emerged to challenge the crown.

Yet, despite the increasingly competitive industry, we continue to be the best crowdfunding platform of all (officially!) So what’s the secret to our success?

Most people will tell you that the way to differentiate yourself within your market is simply to be different. But any old idiot can be different – you’ve got to back up your uniqueness with solid foundations.

We stand out from the crowd because we are expert at what we do and we do it with complete transparency. Investors appreciate the low minimum invest level, investment security is high, and the opportunities for diversification within the asset class are excellent.

Besides all that, we still have to provide a compelling reason for people to get behind us. And that is precisely what The House Crowd has done.

The First And Still The Best

We have always defined ourselves as original thought-leaders. Because we were the first property crowdfunding platform, it goes without saying that we know a good deal of everything there is to know about the industry – after all, we invented it. But, moreover, we are at the forefront when it comes to anticipating, identifying, and reacting to changing circumstances to ensure we meet investors’ needs.

Frazer: The Face of The House Crowd

Besides our obvious expertise, there is also a recognisable face at the forefront of The House Crowd as a brand. That face, of course, is Frazer. It is Frazer’s vision that gave birth to the property crowdfunding model, and his story is one that is as human as it is inspirational.

From his Manchester rave culture adolescence, to his career as a music lawyer, through to a range of entrepreneurial projects, and the eventual dawning of property crowdfunding, Frazer has lived a varied and vibrant life.

The hard work, skills, and knowledge it took him to get The House Crowd off the ground, legally permissible, and into the public eye are a testament to the power of labour and perseverance. To know that there is a man who has a lifelong passion for entrepreneurial spirit is an appealing and assuring concept for people searching for the right hands into which to trust their investment.

Hard work and skills may have been what got The House Crowd off the ground, but part of Frazer’s continued popularity is his honest and sometimes forthright way of communicating. He is a character who has always questioned the status quo, famously leaving his glamorous career in law after being told that ‘love is not a word lawyers use’ by his boss. Never afraid to swim against the tide, it’s both Frazer’s boldness and his intuition for what works that breed confidence from others.

By equal measure, he owns up to his investment mistakes; he shares and clearly articulates how he endeavours not to make the same mistake again. These are rare qualities in most leaders.

Swimming Against The Tide

It is Frazer’s questioning of the status quo that has fed the originality of The House Crowd’s manifesto.

The company has always been about democratising property investment, opening the doors to people from all walks of life. Regardless of how much or how little somebody has to invest, our policy has always been the same: we treat everyone with the same openness, attention, and we care for their money as if it were our own.

Our honesty and transparency differentiate us from the faceless competition, who despite adopting our innovative model, still slump through the dark ages when it comes to their attitude to investors. To us, our investors are all equal, and are welcomed in as though we were a family (if that’s not too trite an analogy).

These are the reasons we are different, and the reasons why we continue to lead the way in the property crowdfunding space. As we continue to grow and evolve our model with the changing shape of property in this era of uncertainty, we are adamant that we will never let go of these factors which make us so unique and special. We hope you will join us on the journey.
