Amy: What property deals work best with crowdfunding, would you say? HMOs? Buy-to-let? Developments? Is there a particular type of project that tends to lean towards crowdfunding?
Ben: We don't discriminate. It's all based on our committee.
So, we've got a committee of property professionals. We look at auctions all over the country. We target specific locations based on performance and then any deal that we agree to go and fund, we've done the most due diligence we can, as per our prescribed document - trying to find properties on the same street, things like that.
So really, any property type and any property investment is something that we will look at as long as the due diligence stacks up.
Amy: And I suppose your investors want a range of products to invest in, as well. They don't just want vanilla buy-to-let.
So, I suppose, for you, it's about keeping that fresh and keeping the options open and choosing interesting projects to whet the appetite of your investors and get them hooked.
Ben: I think that you definitely find, particular investors have their comfort zones.
So, you may get one person that is specifically investing in HMOs. You may get one person that specifically invests in secured loans and so on and so forth.
But that's the beauty of what crowdfunding is all about. It gives people choice, it gives them the information that they need to make an educated decision and hopefully, if someone was, specifically, into one type of investment - because you can invest from £10 - it may actually give them the ability to diversify their style of investment without the risk of actually going and having to do it, as a one-off purchase, themselves.
Yeah, I can get away with saying that, so that's fine.
Amy: Brilliant. Thank you, Ben.
