What is PropTech ?

PropTech is short for Property Technology. This term casts a wide net over a number of areas but can defined by any technology developed to assist in the purchase, leasing or marketing of property. With-in the PropTech sector a number of platforms have sprung up in recent years allowing the small fish investor (like me) to easily invest small amounts in property transactions in exchange for a reasonable return. We all know UK banks are currently delivering pitiful returns on savings accounts at this time so its good to know there are alternatives.

Of course its has to be said any money invested in these platforms is at risk like any other investment, so be aware you can walk away with less than you started with if a borrower hits choppy waters and starts to default on repayments. I would suggest reading as much as possible on your chosen platform and more generally about the sector so your eyes are open before making any commitments.
