Safe and attractive investments
Crowdipy offers investments in all commercial property sectors: warehouses, offices, and retail, including supermarkets and DIY stores etc. Existing real estate crowdfunding platforms focus on residential investments, mainly houses and flats, which are very frequently vacant. Real estate that is already leased by companies provides a much more secure and stable long-term investment option.
Commercial real estate yields (cap rates) are higher than residential property yields. For example, prime residential yields in Central London stand at 2.6%-2.9% (data from John D Wood), versus prime office yields at 3.75% to 4.5% (CBRE). Prime logistics (warehouse) yields are higher yet, at 5%-5.25%. Investments in a poorer location (non-central), in need of maintenance or refurbishment, or only partially leased or vacant, represent a very large proportion of the real estate market and command even higher yields than prime investment opportunities.
Net leases, single-tenant sector investments
Crowdipy specialises in the single tenant sector – that is, commercial properties that are 100% let to one tenant. These properties are:
- Strategically located
- Leased on a long-term basis
They therefore make perfect long-term investments.
