Benefits of Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT)
Mid-market Location that generates a good return today with the potential for capital appreciation over the long-term. With this SmartCrowd Plus opportunity in JLT, we’re projecting a minimum return of 7.5-8%% p.a. (compared to 6% p.a., the current market average). We plan on achieving this target by securing a long-term tenanted property given the excellent location and access to public transport. As evidenced, JLT’s strategic location has proven itself as a fantastic area for working professionals and young families, with close proximity to a range of amenities (home to DMCC #1 free trade zone in the world). JLT has access to two metro stations and parallels Dubai’s main highway, which makes for a strong case as an investment location.
Benefits of Remraam
Affordable Location that generates healthier than normal returns (compared to market) with the potential for stable capital appreciation in the future. With this SmartCrowd Plus opportunity in Remraam, we’re projecting a minimum return of 7.5% p.a. To give investors some perspective about the demand for this area, our last Remraam investment was fully funded in hours. According to REIDIN, this area currently has an occupancy rate of 92%, making it a highly sought after area for both investors and tenants. Developed by Dubai Properties, Remraam is easily accessible from two of Dubai’s major highways and is situated away from hustle and bustle of the city, making it an ideal location for couples and families to call home.

You’ve probably heard this a gazillion times, but Warren Buffet is notorious for eliminating emotion from his investment decisions. Time and time again, the man has shown us exactly how he builds his wealth. He takes advantage of market downturns, buys when prices are low and waits until the market bounces back so that he can sell highDIJ
But what if we actually COULD invest like Buffet? What if WE could invest in $1m opportunities with only $10K? Is it possible?
Well – Now it is.
SmartCrowd is introducing SmartCrowd Plus, a newer way to invest in real estate through crowdfunding in the MENA region.
But… if all of you come together…all of a sudden, you’re purchasing power skyrockets from $10,000 individually to $1,000,000 collectively.
“But, hold on a sec, isn’t that what SmartCrowd already does? How’s SmartCrowd Plus any different?”
At SmartCrowd, we typically find a property first and then put it on the platform to raise funds. This model works well, but we can do better if we raise funds first and then target the properties. This way, you can get better deals and potentially healthier returns.
Now why is that?
- It’s a buyer’s market: there are many sellers who are strapped for cash and are looking to exit. It’s the best time to use Warren Buffet’s strategy.
- You can buy properties below market price: with committed funds, SmartCrowd can be a lot more aggressive in property acquisition negotiations. We have typically secured properties below market price but can achieve even better results for you if we have committed cash up front.
- Limit your downside risk: by buying assets below market price, you are able to limit your investment’s potential capital loss, ensuring you don’t suffer big losses. If you predict a further 10% decrease in prices for next year, but are able to secure an investment today at a further 10% discount, guess what? You’ve still made money.
So how does SmartCrowd Plus work?
It’s simple. Log on to our platform and look for the SmartCrowd Plus tag on our investment cards. With SmartCrowd Plus, you’re choosing a particular area that you want to invest in before we narrow down on a single property. By getting committed funds up front, we are able to negotiate better deals.*
Ultimately, with cash upfront using SmartCrowd Plus, the aim is to provide you with better market returns while minimizing capital losses.
SmartCrowd Plus is based on three distinct investment strategies depending on your goals.
a) Affordable housing – an approach focused on income generation
b) Mid-market housing – a balanced approach to income generation and capital appreciation potential
c) Prime housing – an approach focused on capital preservation and higher potential capital appreciation prospects
