SmartCrowd’s Fee

We charge a structuring fee of 4% of the property value that is split to ensure your money is maximized to generate returns. We charge 1.5% at the time of the investment to establish the investment vehicle and manage all the paperwork required to complete the transaction. This fee includes all transaction costs except the Land Department fees of 4% and brokerage costs if any. Depending on the investment opportunity we might need to incur brokerage fees.

We then charge 2.5% of the property value at the time of the exit. We have split part of our fees for two reasons. Firstly, we want to ensure your money is being maximized to generate returns and secondly we want to give investors’ confidence that Smart Crowd will work hard to ensure here is an exit at the end of the term to return investors capital as part of our fees are dependent on it. The second point is to ensure we align our interest with the investors.

In addition to his we charge an annual fee 0f 10% of the rent. This fee includes the following services:

  • Maintenance of the investment vehicle in the DIFC;
  • Advertising, letting and managing the property, collecting rents, managing tenants;
  • Monitoring and administering the facility management team to ensure they are maximizing the return on your investments; and
  • Reporting on your investments made available through your personalize dashboard
