For centuries, Real estate ownership has been a powerful engine for wealth creation and preservation thanks to properties’ ability to hedge inflation and generate steady cash flow. However, commercial property has always been restrictive because of the large amount of capital required to participate. Traditionally, everyday investors would allocate 5 to 15 years’ savings towards a down payment for one apartment unit. Alternatively, a lack of real estate in one’s investment portfolio would mean that they are confined to riskier investments such as cryptocurrencies or the stock market.
Technological advancement and promulgation of regulations encouraging fragmental ownership have made Real Estate Crowdfunding possible. This is the medium by which everyday Investors can overcome the traditional barriers to enter the real estate market. Starting with US$5,000, everyday investors can now diversify their portfolio and lower risk by allocating capital to professional real estate managers and platforms. By leveraging economies of scale, Real Estate Crowdfunding opens up an equal playground for all investors to materialize real estate investment opportunities.
That being said, the time-consuming and complex nature of real estate investment is one of the major reasons investors shy away from participating. This is why Denzity was born – a marketplace built to drive greater participation in Real Estate Crowdfunding and to overcome the traditional barriers to real estate ownership.
Our three major missions:
Denzity lists unique project listings from different platforms around the world and allows investors to easily compare them before committing their capital.
Denzity does not compete with platforms. Instead, we partner with them and amplify their efforts.
Denzity invites real estate professionals to contribute by providing investors with the tools, resources, and insight to make an informed investment decision.
Denzity’s ecosystem creates a gateway to make real estate ownership more accessible for everyone. Our goal is to create a collaborative community for investors, platforms and real estate professionals to form a virtuous cycle of building communication, confidence, and relationship.
As a Real Estate Crowdfunding Platform, you can rely on us to proliferate the benefits of property investments, so you can focus on sourcing and managing attractive real estate projects. We will connect your projects with the right investors. Direct communication channels and transparency between investors and platforms is key to driving confidence in Real Estate Crowdfunding. Denzity firmly believes the following key benefits can be achieved:
Provide investors with a simple, user-friendly dashboard to browse different real estate projects located in various parts of the world.
Encourage investors and platforms to participate in gathering knowledge and expertise.
Help educate investors on a diverse range of topics and thereby building confidence for investors to participate more.
Bring stakeholders from different parts of the world closer together and share the benefits of real estate ownership.
Denzity is proud to announce a partnership with RECAS Group, a fully integrated real estate firm providing asset management, investment management, and advisory services to the real estate market in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and other countries. https://www.recas-group.com/
RECAS Group (formerly Real Estate Capital Asset Services Limited) was founded in 2004 by Ivan Ko, its current chairman, who has over 25 years experience in real estate development and finance experience. The Denzity team first met Ivan at a PropTech event in Hong Kong and discussed the real estate industry’s future and what kinds of innovation will lead to the greatest impact in elevating the global real estate market.
Ivan identifies that PropTech can bring a positive impact to the real estate industry and RECAS Group believes in Denzity’s mission to serve an identified gap in the real estate crowdfunding market by matching everyday investors with the best possible investment opportunities available around the world.
Ivan has actively participated in PropTech hackathons and events, most recently the Asia PropTech Innovathon (pictured below) as one of the judges and where Denzity was fortunate enough to meet Ivan.
From Ivan’s point of view, innovation and technology services to close gaps in the traditional real estate market, whether unidentified or previously thought impossible. For this reason, PropTech may not receive industry-wide recognition now but is a wave of positive change. From his experience, real estate owners in Hong Kong have generated a decent return by being inefficient in buying and holding a real estate portfolio which has simply experienced tremendous capital appreciation over the recent two decades.
This is why he believes Hong Kong should be at the forefront of PropTech development and tackle key issues like accessibility since Hong Kong is one of the most unaffordable residential markets globally. Ivan recognizes that consistent small improvements in technology and innovation will improve the quality of real estate services provided in the best cost-benefit to corporate users.
To become a leading PropTech hub, Hong Kong provides a strong international environment where access to capital, rule of law (such as IP protection), free flow of information, ease of setting up a business, welcoming attitude to foreign workers and new economic growth companies make Hong Kong a sweet spot for any PropTech firm.
PropTech firms need only bring their innovation to strive in a best practice environment of leading real estate developers and investors. This is a market where “dreams” turn into reality. Ivan supports PropTech firms and Hong Kong as a forward-looking city to become recognized as an industry leader.
As a fully integrated real estate firm, RECAS invites PropTech entrepreneurs from all around the world to build their innovation in Hong Kong. Ivan and his team bring a tremendous amount of experience, connections, and wisdom. As a PropTech firm or investor, you can send Ivan an email here if you would like to seek his advice.
