You might find yourself wondering what exactly real estate management is, and rightfully so. After all, the term has long been familiar only to those in the field of real estate investments. A real estate manager is someone who, well, manages varying aspects of real estate properties for investors. Should you find yourself being a busy and wealthy individual, you may have purchased a selection of properties; And since having to deal with those might interfere with your vacation in Monaco, you hire someone else to do it.
But for the more regular individuals, business interactions with a real estate manager are scarce to non-existent. After all, beyond the cost of investing in properties, a good manager often also charges a pretty penny. Luckily, the world of real estate investing and its managers has been changing, all thanks to crowdfunding.
Crowdfunding: What is it and how does it work?
If you’ve never heard of the term before, crowdfunding is simply a way to fund something using the crowd, so to speak. This can be done for a multitude of reasons: Sometimes it’s to fund new groundbreaking products, or to help support charitable causes. For many non-mainstream inventors, developers, and visionaries, it can provide community support to see projects through.
Crowdfunding is a great way to find a community of people who share your exact interests and want the same benefits as each other. It’s a way of investing in something you feel is valuable – and it can now be done with real estate, too.
The world of real estate investment has always been well-renowned for its strength. But investing in properties has long been out of reach for many. After all, classic direct and indirect investment options have become unattuned with today’s rapidly evolving digital world. Direct investment being far too costly, both in time and money; and indirect investments, although more affordable, are only an investment in a trust or a fund and not in real estate itself. This means you’re investing in a company, not a property of your choosing.
Crowdfunded Real Estate
Crowdfunding real estate enables a large number of people to commonly invest in real estate properties. A high quantity of investors makes for a much lower investment cost on even some of the most prestigious properties.
But a problem remains: How can you find these properties, and how can you make sure they’ll actually grow in value? At CROWDLITOKEN, we take care of that for you. Our real estate managers scour through Europe to find a selection of high-quality properties. They check every little detail that could impact the value of your investment: Location, property state, legal documents, political situation, and any other factors that could affect the market value.
Once they deem a property as worthy, they make it available for the crowd to invest in. So when you’re choosing a property to invest in from our selection, you can rest easy knowing qualified professionals made sure it would be a safe choice.
We aim to make real estate investing easy, safe, and accessible to everyone. You shouldn’t have to be an investor to know of promising investments, you shouldn’t have to be a real estate expert to make an informed decision – and most importantly, you shouldn’t have to break the bank to participate in a proven investment market.
But we also found that a key element was missing from the formula. It’s easy to invest in European properties when you’re in Europe … but what if you live somewhere else in the world?
After all, whether you live in Asia, North America, Australia or Africa, you might also be interested to invest in such properties, but are unable to do so given the complexity of exchanging currency internationally, let alone finding a channel to invest through. That’s why CROWDLITOKEN has decided to take it one step further and open the opportunity to invest in European properties to everyone.
The future of real estate investing, today
The appearance and growing presence of digital currencies created a never-before-possible opportunity. Where real estate was generally a localized market, it’s now been given new life with tokenization.
Tokenization is the process of digitizing the value of a real-world asset, such as real estate. When we created our token, known as CRT, we created not only a bridge between direct and indirect investing, but also a low-cost and highly secure investment system without borders.
You can invest as little as 100CHF or the Euro equivalent to obtain CRT. You can then attribute this token to a property of your choosing and have its value grow proportionally to the property. If you don’t have Euros or Swiss Francs readily available, you can convert any currency into Ethereum and then obtain CRT.
We made real estate investing simpler, safer, and cheaper than ever before. You will be able to manage your investments through our user-friendly dashboard, where you’ll find inspection reports on all properties, documents, and everything you need to know to make an informed, safe decision.
Tomorrow’s real estate investment market
With the widespread availability of CRT and the increasing interest of the mass market towards digital currencies, we know that we’ve created a solution ready to shape the future of real estate investing.
