A city like London, where Crowd with Us is based, is a tough market to enter for many everyday investors and small developers as well. Crowd with Us offers an innovative way for you as an investor to team up with entrepreneurial property developers from around the UK in deals that would normally be out of reach for many.
The deals are found and carried out by property developers around the UK in areas where we believe there is opportunity for growth and/or where we feel the deal itself presents good profit margins for you as an investor.
The property developer takes care of the finding, acquiring & developing of the properties and prepares them for rental or sale. Your investment funds are used together with bank finance taken out by the developer to acquire and develop the properties which are then rented and/or sold.
In the case of financially distressed situations, you have the opportunity to help rescue people who have fallen on hard times financially. In these deals, a fair and win/win/win solution is found for you, the property developer & the person(s) whose situation is being rescued financially. The founders of Crowd with Us have invested in over 50 such deals since the financial recession of 2008 and have a wealth of experience in these scenarios.
Where financially distressed deals are being rescued, the funds raised may be used towards paying off arrears on a mortgage or for clearing debts which are secured against a property so that it can be rented and/or sold. In some situations the properties will be bought outright by a property developer with you and other investors.
The property developments will either be sold as soon as the development is complete or rented until the values reach a pre-determined sales trigger value. Crowd with Us may be appointed as the rental management company or an external letting agent may be appointed.
