Why? Because the Real Estate Market is not a very liquid market, that means when the market goes up it rises slowly but more importantly when the market goes down, the real estate sector is the last to react.
When you invest in SmartCrowd, you are investing in an actual physical property. Not a fund. That distinction is all what matters. You and your fellow investors put up 500,000 AED, you buy a property for 500,000 AED. Thats it. No leverage. That means you are beholden to no one, you decide when to sell and when to hold.
Another direct benefit is that as long as you are holding the property you are earning cash income from rent the entire time.
Now the downside to this is that this type of investment should go into your safe investment portfolio not your high growth one. It is low risk, and decent reward. You should always diversify to improve your returns while minimizing risk.
