The House Crowd Shortlisted for Crowdfunding Platform of the Year

The House Crowd Shortlisted for Property Wire Awards Crowdfunding Platform of the Year

We are very pleased to announce the news this week that we have been shortlisted in the Property Wire Awards 2017 for the Crowdfunding Platform of the Year.

Property Industry Innovation

There are so many changes going on in property these days. Property crowdfunding (thanks to us, the first platform ever!) is currently worth £700 million in the UK alone, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this great alternative finance innovation. But property is also coming on leaps and bounds across the board, with adoption of exciting new technologies and business models.

About Property Wire

The premier global property news service, Property Wire, holds this annual awards ceremony to recognise companies who are embracing the current changes within the property industry. The awards are designed to champion companies who not only innovate and evolve into the new PropTech era, but also push the boundaries towards a new and exciting future for real estate.

Property Wire focuses on global news from both the residential and commercial property sectors. The website boasts an audience of 70,000 readers, encapsulating everyone from estate agents, property developers and surveyors, to architects and, of course, property crowdfunding platforms!

On The Property Wire Awards Shortlist!

We are thrilled to have been shortlisted this year. It is an honour to be recognised for all the hard work we put into democratising property investment and boosting the supply of high-quality homes in the Greater Manchester area.

We’re shortlisted alongside both Homegrown and Landlord Invest. Both are great platforms themselves, so it’s fantastic to be against such stiff competition!

The awards ceremony is set to take place on 24th March at M by Montcalm on Old Street in London. It’s set to be a good night to get together with fellow property industry innovators, explore other developments within the property industry as a whole, and (hopefully!) pick up an award for our contribution to the property crowdfunding space.

The House Crowd shortlisted at National Business Awards 2014

National Business Awards logo

We are proud to announce The House Crowd is one of just 10 companies across the UK that has caught the attention of judges and has been shortlisted in the New Business of the Year Award category for the highly prestigious National Business Awards 2014!

It is recognition of us democratising the property market through crowdfunding – revolutionising how would-be investors, particularly those with smaller budgets can invest.

Judges were impressed with our disruptive and pioneering spirit, opening up a much-loved but notoriously difficult-to-enter market. The House Crowd’s strong customer service and general impact on the North West property market was also noted.

Our MD, Frazer Fearnhead said: As a start-up with big ambitions, it’s fantastic to be recognised on a national level. The House Crowd is part of a whole internet revolution that is giving power back to the people and creating a global community that can interact with each other, cut out big institutions and join forces for the common good. 67 % of our investors felt cut of from property investment before they found The House Crowd.

On a regional level, we are helping some of Greater Manchester’s “forgotten” communities to re-establish themselves. Breathing new life into old properties can have a dramatic effect on local communities as a whole, bringing in new people and ideas, and helping to create a new sense of pride in an area.

On a global level, we are trailblazers – creating a unique, innovative and ground-breaking concept, now emulated in several different countries.

The House Crowd has succeeded in injecting people power in to the once elitist UK property market and in turn, has brought property to the general population.

The winner will be revealed at the National Business Awards gala dinner held on 11 November in London.  Fingers crossed.
