Article 24 in a series of 40 articles on P2P, property and CrowdProperty. 

Last time we talked about why we think those funding property development need to be as up to speed with current trends as those actually doing the development. Here, four satisfied borrowers talk through their experience with us. Next, we will explain why Brismo verification is important.

Each property development project takes persistence and hard work. When it comes to funding it, therefore, don’t be wooed by promises, but look at what your prospective funder has done before, and what their borrowers say about them.

Four satisfied borrowers – from a nine-bed HMO conversion to a steel frame construction new build – explain the benefits of working with CrowdProperty.

“With this being an auction purchase, I needed a decision from the lender as to whether they were going to lend very quickly, and CrowdProperty were able to do their due diligence on this project and myself very quickly … within nine days. They really are able to deliver with speed.” 

Stephen Blunston, Director, Alpha 1 Properties


A bridging loan was provided to the developer to assist the purchase of two auction properties.
