The last blog explained how we’re positive on new developers with a good proposition. Below, we show what others say about CrowdProperty, and next we look at what that (positive) market perspective means for you.
At CrowdProperty, we think we do a fine job both of providing great rates of return to our lenders and being a lender of first resort to property professionals. Ultimately, however, it’s not what we think, but how others view us. In the final analysis, that’s borrowers and lenders.
However, we’re not part of that trend that dismisses expert opinion – our edge, after all, is that we are property experts. It’s heartening, therefore, that other experts in this market also rate CrowdProperty. So, after tussling with a misplaced sense of false modesty for all of 30 seconds, we thought you’d like to review the expert assessment of our proposition, so you can see what all the fuss is about.
According to platform aggregator Brickfunding – which also rated us number one property platform globally – “CrowdProperty is a premier lender offering rigorously selected real estate projects that are always backed by the security of the first charge. In fact, it has an impressive track record of repaying loans and paying 100% interest to investors. In terms of the company’s solvency and soundness, in addition to its excellent track record, the company has recently closed a £1.1 million round of capital funding.”1
“CrowdProperty is a hidden gem in the Peer to Peer lending market – offering above average returns for safer, medium-term loans,” says P2P review site Obvious Investor2. Also from Obvious Investor: “CrowdProperty is laser-focused on low-risk loans, and benefits from a lending team with over 100 years of lending experience. Loans are vetted very thoroughly, evidenced by the fact that to date, all loans have been fully repaid. No lender has lost money in the 5+ years they have been in business.”
Neil Faulkner, co-founder and chief executive of 4th Way, a leading independent peer-to-peer lending market commentator, said: “The key people at CrowdProperty have clearly demonstrated the talent and deep experience needed to properly assess complex development projects, monitor them, keep them on track, and take steps when things go wrong. I believe they are fanatical about maintaining quality.”
And from David Williams on Trustpilot, which rates us ‘excellent’ (five stars): “This is an organisation with integrity, reliability, highly experienced in the property market, has transparency and provides an excellent service. There are no shortcuts or shenanigans as you have with large financial institutions. I hope they are here for the long haul and we can all enjoy the benefits of their service for many years to come.”
From global P2P platform aggregator Welltrado: “Proven that its processes are robust, its platform stable and its due diligence rigorous, as well as confirming its commitment to transparency and client focus.”
