Bricksave is an online real estate crowdfunding platform designed to make investing in luxury properties around the world simple and affordable. Bricksave allows investors to:
Your investment in a property on the platform is made via the purchase of shares in a registered Company that is created for the sole purpose of purchasing the designated property.
There is a different Project LLC. for each and every property; therefore you will always know that you are investing in the exact property as chosen by you.
Through the property LLC. you own a portion of the property. Every month, your Bricksave Member’s Account is credited with a share of the dividends proportionally to your ownership of the Company that owns the property.
Dividends are calculated as the Gross Rent collected from tenants, minus property-related costs (such as management fees, insurance, maintenance and taxes). Under no circumstances will you be required to contribute additional capital.
Dividends are paid out to crowdfunders at the end of each calendar year from the date that each project is closed.
No, investors will not have to contribute further capital. All costs including bills and fees are funded from the Gross Rent. The risks of most large unexpected costs (such as flood or fire) are mitigated through property insurance.
Certain other costs, such as roof maintenance, are also forecasted and communicated via our website to investors at the point of investment. To deal with this we either (i) raise a work provision during initial crowdfunding or (ii) set aside a certain amount of Gross Rent.
If an unexpected and uninsured cost greater than Gross Rent is incurred, Bricksave reserves the right to take out a loan secured against the property to pay the expense. That loan will then be repaid from Gross Rent and investors’ returns will be impacted accordingly. This situation would be communicated clearly and fairly to all existing and prospective investors.
Capital appreciation or depreciation is realized when you exit your investment. There are two principle ways to exit:
1) Offer your investment for sale privately. If you wish to exit your investment then we would ask you to contact Bricksave directly, although we do not guarantee to find a buyer or facilitate your exit from the investment, until the Bricksave secondary market is live, we will try to assist you in this.
The standard investment exit is;
2) Exit after four years at market value
On each fourth anniversary of the completion of the transaction on the platform, Bricksave will put the property on the market for sale under the following conditions:
(i) The property is inspected and valued by an independent Chartered Surveyor with reference to factors such as recent transactions and the condition of the property, adjusted for any potential liabilities that the LLC may have, such as taxation.
(ii) Once the property sale has completed investors will receive the dividend relevant to their share in the property.
Bricksave will administer this process and is obliged to act in the interests of investors to maximise financial return. On successful completion of the sale, all Investors in that property will be exited and net proceeds will be distributed to investors. Note that third party costs, such as legal fees, will reduce the proceeds available for distribution to investors, but Bricksave will not charge any fees or make any profit margin on the third party fees.
It should be noted that this process will take as long as required and typically the sales process is between 3-4 months. However, there is no guarantee of this as the sale could take longer.

Crowdfunding is a system in which people collectively network and pool their funds in an effort to raise money for a project or organisation, usually via the internet. The idea behind Crowdfunding is simple: like-minded people can group together small amounts of money enabling them to invest into larger, previously unattainable projects, and when they do, large sums of money can be raised quickly.
Real Estate Crowdfunding allows money to be collectively raised from many investors and used to fund the purchase/construction of a property. Each investor owns a percentage of the property in proportion to their initial investment. The benefits are clear to both the real estate market and investors. Capital for projects can be raised quickly and investors can get access to the real estate market with small amounts of money.
Bricksave allows investors to collectively buy the property on a buy-to-let basis (with Bricksave doing all the legwork and legal organisation), and then collect a proportional share of the rental income, as well as a share of the capital gains once the property is sold after four years.
Deep Focus - we leverage our extensive network in the global real estate market to locate the best properties for investment with a focus on achieving the highest yield returns at the lowest possible risk for our crowdfunding investors.
Due Diligence - utilising our management team’s expertise, Bricksave completes a thorough audit of the property and physically visits the location to evaluate the market value, location, quality, etc.
Ongoing Management - all administration in regards to fees, recurring insurance, maintenance, etc. are taken care of by Bricksave, allowing investors a hassle-free, great value investment.
