As an investor, if you have cash that you wish to invest you have a number of options, including savings accounts, bonds or riskier investments like stock markets or complicated derivatives.
Savings are safe but offer paltry returns, bonds pay out regularly, but cannot grow your money, and shares require a great understanding of the markets.
Technology has been embraced and utilised as a natural progression for forward-thinking enterprises and individuals, and we now have the platforms in place that can connect borrowers and investors from all over the globe with each other.
There are now a growing number of P2P lenders to choose from but what are the advantages or disadvantages of such investments?
P2P investing in property or also known as real estate crowdfunding is a relatively new and interesting concept to take a look at. In fact, it’s safer than standard P2P investments because in most cases such investments are protected by a mortgage.
Established online investing platforms such as Bulkestate have plenty of information on the investing process to get you started and to guide you through making a property investment. Another important aspect is due diligence. As most investors are just seeking for investment opportunities but lack the knowledge about the market, Bulkestate team does the pre-vetting process of properties before publishing them to the platform.
There are clearly many positive aspects to P2P lending, and there are a large number of sites catering to the different areas of interest, be it loans, business funding or real estate investments.
For a small affordable amount, you can sign up to a P2P platform by filling in an online application. Then you simply transfer the amount of funds you wish to lend or invest and start searching for suitable projects to get involved with.
