Today is the official launch of the world’s first crowdfunding property investment company. (That’s us by the way).
If you haven’t heard of crowdfunding before and want to know more you can read all about it on Wikipedia. We hope you all agree it’s a great idea that can help people achieve much better returns on their savings and do so without giving the leeches “ who’ve just decided to put up their standard variable mortgage rates – any business.
Question:Can someone please tell me what the point of signing an agreement that allows one side (i.e. the banks) to alter the agreed rate payable whenever they feel like it.
Seems somewhat unfair to me.
Joint Ventures Property Investment
Back in 2012, when we were first starting out, we were the first to offer the property crowdfunding investment model. At that time, things were very different to how they are now. Just take a look at this quote from our blog back in March 2012:
“I’ve just been lurking around the property investment forums such as Property Tribes. There seem to be some interesting discussions about joint ventures in relation to property investment but some scepticism about the partners involved, especially as they all seem to charge fees in one way or another.
Not a true joint venture in my opinion.
Hopefully, people will realise we offer a simple, transparent way they can participate in a genuine joint venture and invest in property for mutual benefit.”
This is an example of what we were thinking about back in 2012 when we first launched.
However, since that time, we are pleased to have seen the property crowdfunding market catapult in popularity. Indeed, people did wake up to the simple, transparent joint ventures in property investment that we offered. So, too, did many other property entrepreneurs, who began mimicking our model and setting up their own property crowdfunding and P2P platforms.
Now, the industry is worth billions worldwide. We are proud to have been the first, and still the leaders, in offering a way to invest in a diverse portfolio of property with the potential for high returns.

Big thanks to all our friends and colleagues who turned up on Sunday and braved the cold in House Crowd t-shirts for our photo shoot. Although it was freezing, we managed to narrowly avoid the rain and Chris Bull, the photographer took some great shots.
