It can be said that property developers need several things to be successful: land, capital, and knowledge. Capital is often one of the most difficult to obtain for newer, or smaller developers. Property crowdfunding platforms like CrowdfundUP can be a benefit to commercial property developers looking for further sources of capital from qualified Investors.See why you should use Crowdsourced platforms in Australia.
Many Investors want to invest in commercial real estate. These investors have typically not had many “passive” real estate options available to them — other than REITs, which don’t have all the individual-level tax benefits of direct participation investments.
Online investment marketplaces bring in investors who may, in fact, be ready to invest funds into property and are aware of the benefits of investing in Australian real estate. Investors like real estate for a number of reasons, however commercial property investments have historically been a bit more difficult to access as an "everyday investor" – until online marketplaces came along and changed the landscape and ability to access larger investments.
Though crowd based funding is most always the main goal of the commercial property projects for property developers, it can also be a beneficial option to gain visibility, validate your business, grow your customer base, and more.
CrowdfundUP is Australia's leading property crowdfunding platform, with offerings across Australia that run the gamut of property types – multi-family residential, retail shopping centers, office buildings, self-storage facilities, and just about every other type of commercial real estate.
It is also a viable platform for developers who would like a low cost, diversified source of funding, faster turnaround times, and increased marketing and branding exposure.
