Welcome to RealEstateCrowdfundingDotCoza – The first ever Commercial and Development property portal of its kind in South Africa!
What is Crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is a practice of funding a project or a venture by raising funds from a number of individuals, typically via the internet.
The concept of crowdfunding, also known as collective fundraising has been around for a long time, e.g. in 1885 in the United States – funds were raised in this manner in order to put up the Statue of Liberty in New York City.
Traditionally, commercial real estate has been one of the most lucrative property investments in the market, however, it was mainly available to only the very wealthy.
RealEstateCrowdfundingDotCoza is an online platform enabling investors to participate in property investments previously only available to the high net worth individuals. Now smaller investors can own shares in lucrative property opportunities with smaller amounts of money than normally required.
How Does It work?
We list pre-approved and qualified opportunities in the commercial, retail, industrial and development projects.
Every property investment opportunity that undergoes a due diligence process. We list qualified, sound properties and development projects that comply with industry standards. As part of the due diligence, we obtain all relevant documents – including, but are not limited to title deeds, municipal accounts, zoning information, plans, independent property valuations, feasibility studies, financials, income and expenditure, town planner reports and professional reports, etc.
Each property investment opportunity has a target amount it needs to achieve within a certain period of time in order for the investment to be successful.
When Investor finds an opportunity to his liking, he/she will register his/her interest and request investment details.
Details will be emailed and will contain all the documentation available for the investment.
Whilst the fundraising process is underway, we encourage investors to scrutinize the documentation as part of due diligence process and inspect properties personally prior to making decisions.
Each property investment will be owned in a separate entity. A shelf company or trust will be formed and used in order to own the particular property.
Shares of the entity will be owned outright and solely by investors. Such entity’s sole purpose will be owning specific property and will hold a first covering mortgage bond over the property as security for investors.
If an investor is satisfied with the Due Diligence, he/she will log into the website and register their interest and pledge a certain amount of money.
Whilst the funds are being raised, all monies will be held in an attorney’s trust account. The funds will only be transferred once the full funding request is reached.
Investors will be able to manage all your Investments via RealEstateCrowdfundingDotCoza website with real-time analytics dashboard or via regular email updates.
Either way, investors will be kept up to date real-time regarding investments and total funds raised.
When target amount is reached, investment listing is closed. Each investor now owns a certain percentage in the particular entity as per the amount they pledged.
The property will be run and managed by the investors themselves, who would decide on all aspects of their property investment.
No third party holding or management company will be imposed and the investors will hold full reigns and control for each property. You paid for it – you control it!
All profits and dividends will be split among investors as per their percentage of ownership.
In case of insufficient funds being raised for the property – all monies will be returned to the investors by the attorneys.
