An online lettings platform used by 20,000 landlords has beaten its target to raise £850,000 In investment – and it’s still open for more cash.
Lettingaproperty is using crowdfunding site Seedrs for the latest raise, following some £750,000 which it secured in the middle of last year.
So far it’s raised £865,000 from 185 investors on Seedrs and it has another 10 days of fundraising to go.
Founded by brothers Jonathan and Matthew Daines in 2008 lettingaproperty claims to provide “a cost-effective alternative to traditional high street letting agents.”
Currently it has over 1,500 rental properties under management and collects over £24m in annual rent across Britain.
The platform claims to have seen 80 per cent subscriber growth, generating £800,000 in annual recurring revenue, and £1.1m turnover in 2022.
It says its share is just over 0.1 per cent of the serviceable available market, and its aim is to service 1.2 per cent of this market.
Funds raised in this crowdfunding round will be used for marketing and product development “designed to nurture, retain and grow the subscriber base, boost recurring revenue, and capture greater market share.”
‘This is the best Estate Agent in Milton Keynes by far. We have been renting the past 10 years from these guys and never let us down…Would 100% recommend Stratfords Property Services to anyone.’
