Property crowdfunding: Australian investor perspectives 2016/17

5 Jul 2017
Description

The report shows the perceptions of Australian property investors regarding property crowdfunding as an investment vehicle. The survey-based research design focussed on questions regarding investors' perceptions on mainly information and knowledge of the investment vehicle, risk, and return and ownership expectations as well key demographics. The initial purpose of this property investment vehicle was to allow younger investors to participate in property investment activities through investing smaller amounts of money. However, one of the key findings shows that older investors, especially men between the age 55 and 74 years, are actively involved in property crowdfunding with only 4% of the investors surveyed being younger than 35 years. Furthermore property crowdfunding is perceived as low to medium risk investment vehicle with long-term return and ownership expectations. Regarding policy, regulation and legislation, property crowdfunding is still in its infancy but is a fast growing investment medium as it is easy to access and easy to use.
