How does it work?
A property owner, developer or entrepreneur proposes a business case for which they need funding. The professional team at EstateGuru will examine the application, and commission an independent valuation by a recognized third party.
If the independent review of the value of security, and the analysis of EstateGuru team’s due diligence, including of the borrower business plan and exit strategy is positive, the loan will be opened for investment. Within ten days of funding being successfully achieved through the platform, EstateGuru will set a charge on the property, releasing the funds to the borrower.
At EstateGuru Lenders earn interest on a monthly basis through the term of the loan, at rates that exceed most of the standard investment vehicles. Borrowers can quickly and efficiently raise competitively priced capital to bring their projects to life. Asset backed investing and borrowing has never been easier.
