As property crowdfunding grows in popularity the market will become more and more saturated and new companies enter the fray. This will mean more consumer choice which is great but choice can also be overwhelming and selecting the right platform will become a much harder process for would-be property investors.

Amy: What problems do you think property investors could be facing with crowdfunding in the future? Or, as they move forward with it, do you think there are any issues or things that people need to be aware of?
Ben: I think that choice is going to become a problem because you can’t invest in everything.
I’ve noticed, in a very short space of time, that there are companies, brands, popping up everywhere and that means that the marketplace then becomes saturated which usually, historically, in business, means there’s room for probably one-to-five market leaders in any, particular, embryotic marketplace.
Using an online estate agency as an example, there are probably hundreds of online estate agents but there’s probably only four or five that I could name and go, ‘They’re the ones that people know’.
Property Moose is very fortunate in that we were there at the beginning, one of the first in Europe, at least.
So, I think that as time goes on, people will become more educated but they’ll also have more choice, which makes the due diligence process harder because you can’t research every single company that is out there.
The only thing I would say is, ‘Just make sure that if you are working with a financial institution and you are investing your money, just make sure your money is protected by the governing bodies and redressing and things like that’.
Crowdfunding is the simplest and quickest way to invest in property. In just a few minutes you can be well on your way to building a diversified and balanced, property portfolio.
Unlike traditional forms of property investment, crowdfunding does not require huge sums of money to get involved and opens up the property market to everyone.
