April Newsletter Max Property Group

Spring is upon us and with it comes positive news of progress being made, even in these difficult times. Despite the restrictions to which we are subjected, we have reached the final stages of development of the new Max Crowdfund platform and we trust you are as excited about this as we are!AFM Approval Application UpdateContrary to last last month’s lack of communication by the AFM, this month our lawyers have been in regular contact with the Dutch financial authorities, with more questions being presented and answers provided.Erwin, MPG’s CTO recently spoke to the AFM’s blockchain specialist to process a few final queries. As we understand it, the AFM is now “crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s” before approving our real estate crowdfunding platform on DLT.Max Crowdfund WebsiteThe new (Drupal 8) platform is making good progress, having been moved from the test to the staging environment. It is undergoing final testing for features ranging from providing KYC to submitting a project to be funded. New loans cannot be published on the platform until AFM approval has been achieved but we expect to be ready to launch the technology as soon as approval has been granted.Max Crowdfund AppsBoth Android and iOS apps have now been uploaded to the developer environments of Apple and Google respectively, and are being tested before being uploaded to the public App stores. We will let you know once they are available for download!MPG Blockchain DecisionFollowing long discussions, it has been decided that we will continue with the existing MPG blockchain, in accordance with fundamental blockchain principles. We are unable to re-open trading of the MPG utility tokens whilst the police investigation is ongoing, or until all the remaining stolen tokens have been returned.We therefore ask anyone whom has bought discounted MPG on Stex, Probit, P2PB2B or Dex to please let us know how much was bought and at what price. You will be reimbursed in full, in exchange for the MPG purchased.MPG hereby confirms that all users will receive new wallets and previous balances will be restored through compensation by MPG.Big news announcements coming up soon!April Newsletter Max Property Group was originally published in MaxPropertyGroup on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Crowdfunding Real Estate — How To Avoid Scams, Fraud and Other Pitfalls

Crowdfunding Real Estate — How To Avoid Scams, Fraud and Other PitfallsProperty Investing During Lockdown* By Max Property GroupCrowdfunding is becoming increasingly mainstream, so it is no surprise that property investment is a rapidly growing sector in the crowdfunding world. Real estate is seemingly made for crowdfunding, offering significant benefits when compared to traditional investment methods, typically:Lower investment amountsGreater portfolio diversificationGreater stabilityLower feesLess workBut with new technologies, come new risks, some of which investors may not be aware of nor prepared for. Sadly, with the lack of regulation in emerging sectors, there is always room for people to exploit the system and take advantage of unsuspecting users.Unsecured InvestmentsThis is the biggest risk to any real estate investment in our opinion. The success and longevity of property investing is rooted in the “bricks and mortar” nature of owning a physical asset. If the stock market plummets and the economy takes a beating, at least you have buildings in your portfolio when you’re a property investor. Take this out of the equation and you lose one the main advantages of investing in real estate.Sadly, some platforms promise property related returns but without actually securing an underlying asset. Investors may feel that they are protected by the “bricks and mortar” nature of real estate whereas, in reality, these benefits do not apply. Having an asset isn’t enough, either. The asset also needs to be of a sufficient value to cover investors in case of a failed project.Always make sure that the investment is secured by a physical asset, and that the investment amount represents a good proportion of the asset value. So, if anything should go wrong, the property can be sold for at least the amount of total investment in the property or project, as well as any fees incurred by liquidating it.Always ask yourself; “Is my money fully covered if this project fails?”Hidden FeesOne of the main advantages of investing via online crowdfunding platforms, is the reduction in fees in comparison to traditional investing. Unfortunately, some platforms may hide fees that are payable later on in the investment process, or upon failure of the project.Avoiding this comes down to reading the small print, and asking fundraisers difficult questions. Similarly, platforms that have a track record, existing investors and good reviews are less likely to have tricks up their sleeves.Be realistic; if the fees on a platform appear to be too low, they probably are. Crowdfunding platforms need to make some money too, so they have to charge fees. If they are promising no fees or ridiculously low fees, the chances are you will pay the price down the line, with interest!Always ensure the fees are clearly indicated on the platform and in the investment documents!Lack of LiquidityGenerally speaking, the longer an investment’s lock in period is, the greater the returns that are achievable from it. Investors with the luxury of being able to lock in their capital for long periods are in a great position, but there are always unexpected circumstances in life that require one to release some capital and a level of flexibility in an investment product is always a desirable.The liquidity problem doesn’t just apply to crowdfunded projects, but all real estate projects to a certain extent. However, properties that are being sold to a group of investors may be more difficult to liquidate as it would require the co-operation or agreement of all parties to sell the property. However, if the investment is attractive and popular, others may be willing to buy your proportion of the project, thereby making it more liquid. Buying real estate investments as security tokens can resolve this issue, provided they can be traded.Always check what the lock-in period is for a given investment, and whether there is an emergency exit strategy. Find out if you can resell your part in the crowdfunded project and the time and cost involved in doing so. Only commit to a time period that you are comfortable with, and to a liquidity level that you are able to afford.Due Diligence LimitationsCrowdfunding platforms are designed to make the investor’s life easier, partly by reducing busy work and performing background checks on behalf of all the platform’s users.Whenever due diligence is performed by a third party, there is a risk of it being incomplete, badly performed and ever fraudulent. If you are going to trust a third party’s checks, make sure that either the proof is made readily available or that you wholeheartedly trust the body performing the checks.Always ensure the Due Diligence documents are readily available.About the authorMax Crowdfund is an international real estate crowdfunding platform developed by property professionals, since 2017. Platform security measures include blockchain technology, asset backed investment policy, a third party administrator to sign off on all projects and transparent due diligence procedure.*Whilst the world is on lockdown and the real estate sector is on ice, we have a moment to reflect on the nature of things, and to assess what it is that makes investors vulnerable to the pitfalls of real estate investments available on crowdfunding platforms.Crowdfunding Real Estate — How To Avoid Scams, Fraud and Other Pitfalls was originally published in MaxPropertyGroup on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
