An investment platform that allows for micro-investments in real estate.
Smart Crowd Overview
SmartCrowd makes real estate investing accessible and affordable for individuals and families. Our real estate investment platform (REIP) enables people to directly invest in attractive investment properties at a fraction of total prices using a crowdfunding model.
Hassle-free real estate investment platform
We do all the hard work so you don’t have to. Our experts analyze hundreds of properties using our proprietary screening tool and list only the most attractive investments on our platform. We take care of the entire process so you can get back to what matters to you. In less than 5 minutes you can register, browse, invest and start earning a second income.
Safe and Secure Regulated REIP
Smart Crowd is the only regulated real estate investment platform (REIP) in the Middle East. We are regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) and registered in the Dubai Financial Services Centre (DIFC).
We’re not here to make a quick buck. SmartCrowd rose out of a personal desire to make real estate investing more affordable, honest, and easy. As our promise, you will always receive clear and transparent information. We even give you access to independent third-party reports.
Smart Crowd offers the following:
Access: pre-vetted real estate investments
Invest: in a fraction of a real estate property
Earn: regular rental income from the investment
Exit: decide when to sell the investment
We Use A Data-Driven And Analytical Approach
SmartCrowd analyzes real estate opportunities using a 100-point proprietary screening tool and independent third-party market data to assess the investment attractiveness of each property. For every 100 properties analyzed, only a handful meet our rigorous criteria and are listed onto the platform.
To Help Everyday People Grow Their Wealth.
We give you the opportunity to invest in real estate for as little as AED5,000. Once you are ready to make an investment, simply click invest and transfer your investment amount into a separate custodian bank account that holds onto your funds securely.
Invest With Confidence
All properties on our platform are listed for 30 days to give investors ample time to raise funds. If a property is not funded within that period, your investment will be refunded to your digital wallet at no cost, allowing you the opportunity to invest in another property or make a withdrawal.
With A Transparent Ownership Structure
Once 100% of the funds are raised by investors, SmartCrowd creates a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) for each property. We divide each SPV into one million shares and allocate your shares proportionate to your investment. This means that you own the SPV, which in turn owns the investment property. It’s all regulated and transparent!
Start Earning Income From Your Real Estate Investments
Sit back and relax. Rental income from each of your properties is transferred into your SmartCrowd account’s digital wallet where you can withdraw funds at any time! Best of all, SmartCrowd removes the hassle of being a landlord and property owner. We take care of everything so you can get back to what matters to you. Register, browse, invest and earn. It’s that simple.
And Decide When To Exit
Since real estate is a long-term investment, we recommend a holding period of 5 years. On the 5th anniversary of your investment, you decide whether the property should be sold at market value via your dashboard on the platform. Alternatively, investors can call for a vote amongst themselves at any point in time.
