Is Covid-19 (Finally) Driving Property Fundraising Online?

Written by Mark Lloyd for Q Magazine by QandorWe live in an highly digitised society; one in which investors can buy anything from Forex to stocks at the touch of a button, and yet the largest investment sector in the world has scarcely advanced, technologically speaking, in several decades. Now the effects of Covid-19, whilst driving businesses online, may be the nudge that the property market needs to drag it kicking and screaming into the 21st century.Despite the technological advances of our lifetime, real estate has been oddly immune to the digital revolution. The global property market was valued at $228 trillion by Savills in 2016, yet few tech companies have attempted to take on its complex landscape, in comparison to other sectors.Database companies such as Zillow, who netted over 300 Million USD in 2019, and crowdfunding platforms, forming one of the fastest growing investment sectors, have demonstrated the market’s ripeness for a digital makeover, yet property financing has scarcely evolved over the last 200 years.Enter Covid-19Whilst countless business sectors are being devastated by the Covid-19 pandemic as it sweeps the globe, leaving untold damage to the world’s economy in its wake, perhaps one industry is actually benefitting from the changes enforced on the global population. Geographical confinement and social distancing are forcing the global population online: Investors, employees, financiers and property owners are all being compelled to manage meetings, give instructions and make payments with the least possible human contact. Online payment platforms, video conference applications and remote management technologies are in use more than ever before, and the investment process is finally moving online too.The End Of The Dinosaur EraRaising funds for a property development in the UK, although perhaps streamlined by technological aides such as video conferencing, still involves following the traditional channels such as raising seed capital, applying for developers’ mortgages, providing stacks of paperwork and spending many hours with compliance departments, valuers and contract lawyers.With the emergence of crowdfunding as an acceptable and increasingly mainstream fundraising method, Max Property Group is applying the crowdfunding movement to property development, making fundraising a simpler, more accessible affair.The property company with headquarters in Rotterdam has been developing an online fundraising platform since 2017. Max Crowdfund is the only property crowdfunding platform of its type in the Netherlands to have been granted approval by the financial services authority. It has harnessed the power of fast emerging blockchain technology to add transparency to property transactions, it has taken the concept of crowdfunding and applied to it project development, and it has done so within the regulatory framework of the Dutch financial services authority.About Max Crowdfundmaxcrowdfund.com is being developed as a global property platform, to serve developers seeking funding for real estate projects, as well as investors looking for property asset backed investment opportunities. The site brings them together to mutual benefit. All the projects listed on the platform are carefully vetted to ensure only the highest quality projects are funded. Similarly, investors must undertake rigorous AML and KYC procedures, in accordance with financial regulations. The result is a safe and transparent marketplace for developers and investors alike, to realise projects and make solid investment returns.Case StudyIn the Netherlands, rental properties are limited by a point system if their energy certificate is below a B rating. This limits landlords’ ability to achieve higher rental yields. Increasing a property’s energy rating involves refurbishments such as upgrading insulation or boiler efficiency, which requires funds. Mortgage banks in the Netherlands will not issue loans for upgrading a property’s energy efficiency whilst the rental yield remains unchanged, so landlords are achieving a below par rental income on a property worth a great deal more, were it not for the energy certificate.Using Max Crowdfund, a Dutch landlord can apply for a crowdfunded loan and perform the renovations required to increase the property’s energy rating. This in turn will bring the property into the Dutch rental market’s “free sector” allowing the landlord to charge a higher rental rate. With the higher rental yield, the landlord can then apply for a remortgage from the mainstream banks and repay the loan to Max Crowdfund users.“Max Property Group has been trying to move real estate investing online for years, and now it seems as if a terrible disease has given the global collective mindset a push in the right direction”How Max Crowdfund Can Help UK DevelopersThe regulatory approval granted to Max Crowdfund allows the platform to raise funds for companies registered in the Netherlands, UK and Germany. The company behind the platform, Max Property Group, has been operating property investment funds in these three countries for over half a decade.Property Developers, or companies, in the UK are now able to create an account on Max Crowdfund and submit an application for the funding of an asset backed project. The property asset backing the loan can be anywhere in the world. A compliance team will then vet the project before approving it and listing it on the Max Crowdfund platform, which currently has over 70,000 users worldwide.Main Advantages Of Using Max CrowdfundSpeed: The compliance and quality control team will often conduct due diligence more quickly than traditional channelsEfficiency: Once a project is listed, fundraising is performed online, with transactions taking hours rather than weeks. There are no notaries, contracts, lawyers etc. to slow down the process.Transparency: All transactions that take place on the platform are registered on a bespoke blockchain to ensure that they are irrevocably recorded.Alternative: Max Crowdfund is a useful resource where traditional sources of funding cannot be utilised (such as in the case study)Low fees: Thanks to automation, the fees charged by the Max Crowdfund platform to raise funds for a project are very low in relation to traditional fundraising methods.Written by Mark LloydManaging DirectorMax Property Groupwww.maxpropertygroup.comwww.maxcrowdfund.comIs Covid-19 (Finally) Driving Property Fundraising Online? was originally published in MaxPropertyGroup on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Earn 15%+ ROI With A Dutch “Recreational Villa”

In the Netherlands, holiday homes that are a part of a recreational park and therefore not classed as a main residence are subject to a the government issued refund of the VAT (21%) paid upon purchase.Most buyers choose to finance the purchase with a mortgage and, since the total purchase price can be financed (based on 70% LTV mortgage), and then 21% is returned, the capital outlay for a property ends up being minimal. this, combined with the low fixed interest rates available at the moment, creates a high-yielding property.Max Property Group has the exclusivity to sell the expansion of holiday home park Zuytland Buiten, with 10% of the park already reserved ahead of the official marketing campaign.During September broadcasts for Zuytland Buiten will be recorded, and will be aired on “Doe Maar Duurzaam” on RTLZ and “Business Class” on RTL7 in the Netherlands during October.If you want to find out more about the park, email us at info@maxpropertygroup.com or WhatsApp +31612662969.On Saturday the 12th of September we will also host our first open day at the park and you are welcome to come and visit. Due to Covid-19, we can only receive one family at a time, so please contact us to schedule an appointment.Earn 15%+ ROI With A Dutch “Recreational Villa” was originally published in MaxPropertyGroup on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Max Crowdfund Is Allowing People to Create A Digital Piggybank

Translated from DeTelegraaf, the largest daily morning newspaper in the Netherlands. (Note: Some of the content has been changed in translation from the original Dutch)Rotterdam — You can now invest in an apartment complex or a renovation project from just one hundred euros.Previously excluded from these opportunities, because developers often imposed high entry levels, private individuals now have access to the real estate market through crowdfunding platforms- where their investment can be monitored continuously by way of a digital network.Crowdfunding, the raising of money by groups of people (for an apartment, for example) is more than twenty years old. Platforms such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Gofundme and Sellaband, became the best known global crowdfunding resources. In the Netherlands, Collin Crowdfund made a name for itself by collecting and providing loans to SMEs.Rotterdam’s Max Crowdfund is now the first Dutch online platform that works via the blockchain and has received approval from the financial regulator AFM. It is authorised to offer loans from companies in the Netherlands, Germany and the United Kingdom, secured by real estate assets.Growth In Europe“There has been a need for this for years”, says Esther Dekker of Max Property Group, the company behind Max Crowdfund. “We now want to grow throughout Europe.”All the platform transactions are recorded on the blockchain: a large digital ledger, kept in the air by PCs and servers across millions of users, and on which all customer investments records are unique, immutable and listed in a digital chain. Purchases and sales, processing and administration are all done digitally, without the intervention of expensive advisers and civil-law notaries. On the blockchain, they can always be viewed online by everyone.The platform offers developer loans to the public, whilst the loans themselves are backed by real estate. Individuals can invest from €100 to support a project and received a return on their investment.There are risks on the investment: For example, if the loan applicant can no longer pay the interest that must be paid, Max Crowdfund takes over the property and it is then auctioned.In this market, even more initiatives are getting hot: the Annexum company started with start-up Bloqhouse this spring. Private investors receive a “participation” in an apartment or residential block in a ticket for euros. As with Max Crowdfund, the investor receives a digital “token” in exchange for euros. This goes into your own secure digital “wallet” or purse. Thanks to these tokens, the small individual can become part of the owner of the project.Max Crowdfund now has 70,000+ registered users. Still under the radar, the platform is currently expanding in the Netherlands, Germany and the United Kingdom, where the real estate company manages 3,500 properties with its partners, as well as 1,000 properties in Rotterdam.There are no longer any intermediaries on the blockchain: everyone trades directly with each other. “Because everything is completely clear. Thanks to the blockchain, investing in real estate is more transparent.” says Erwin van Kekem, head of technology at the platform. “The costs are many times lower now that all real estate agents, notaries and administration are out.
