Making UK Property Accessible To Everyone
Simple Crowdfunding is a property crowdfunding platform that offers both equity finance and peer to peer loans through one platform. We connect Investors with property professionals through property projects in the UK. We first received authorisation in 2013 and have been growing ever since.
Investors access property investment opportunities and learn about property through live projects. Fundraisers get projects funded, increase their market presence and build a base of loyal fans.
Our team are experienced property and finance professionals, who enjoy what we do. We have experience of buy to lets, renovations, empty property conversions, new builds, HMOs and more - both in the UK and overseas. We love this marketplace as it allows property companies successfully grow and reach their property ambitions and provides investors with a platform where they can build their own wealth portfolios online, in a simple, repeatable way.
