The House Crowd were the first crowd funding company to specialise in property investment in the world, and they have helped to raise over £5m, which has helped them to purchase over 70 residential houses around the Greater Manchester area.

The House Crowd purchase empty, run down properties. They spend the money refurbishing them to a let-able condition and then they are rented to those most in need of housing. There are currently over 720,000 empty homes in the UK and an estimated 1 million plus homeless people (2/5 of which are thought to be families).
