About Property Moose

Property Moose was founded in 2013 as the first property crowdfunding platform in Europe. In the UK, property investment has traditionally only been open to those with cash savings and access to finance. Even those that could invest were usually limited to buying one or a small number of properties, reducing their ability to build a diverse portfolio. Property Moose is driven by inclusivity, opportunity and social change, and are attempting to reimagine the housing market. They’ve created a platform that allows investors to become landlords for just £10, receive any applicable rental income and potentially cash in on the eventual sale of the property. In addition, a live secondary market allows Property Moose members to potentially trade their shares on an exclusive trading platform. They’ve grown considerably over the past few years and over 17,000 members now span across 60 countries, and are excited to watch this grow.

How Does Investing with Property Moose Work?

After signing up to Property Moose, investors will be asked to complete a short questionnaire on your investment experience so that they can ensure investors understand the risks involved, and confirm their identity. Investors can then deposit funds into an E-Wallet with a credit card, debit card or bank wire transfer.

Then investors can start browsing investment opportunities, to decide which suits them best. As Property Moose source properties that are below market value for investors’ benefit, each investment opportunity will detail the percentage at which it is Below Market Value. In addition to this, one can find statistics on the projected yield and projected growth. Beneath these figures is an investment calculator where you can see the projected return you could expect, depending on how much you invest and the property performing as expected. Investors can also potentially benefit from their secondary market, which may allow one to buy in to a fully funded investment, or exit the term early by selling shares, should investors find a willing buyer. Although Property Moose do not provide any advice, their support team will only be a message or phone call away should you require any assistance whilst using their service.

Why Property Moose?

The sector is growing at such a fast pace, and are watching new competitors crop up every month. They believe that Property Moose was the first property crowdfunding platform in Europe. In addition, to their mission to democratize the property market, they believe they have the lowest minimum investment amount of £10. They are also one of the only crowdfunding platforms in the UK to provide members with a secondary market, creating the potential for liquidity. In comparison to a more traditional way into the housing market, investing with them means investors do not have to have knowledge of the market, logistics or time. They take care of all management, sourcing and market evaluations, and provide investors with simple summaries of investment opportunities and their potential. Investors should, however, always conduct their own due diligence before investing.
