As a property investor you need all of the help you can get to find the best projects to invest in. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, a business located in East Yorkshire has launched the very first property investment portal for the UK.
The aim of the website, Truffull, is to provide property investors with a revolutionary way to search for potential projects as well as sell online. Truffull is the brainchild of Jonathon Barker and Alex Appelbe (who is an IT expert). It all started as a property development hobby for the two business partners.
They came up with the idea of searching for potential properties and selling them a lot more cost effective and easier. It took them two years from when they first agreed to work together in 2018 to launch the portal. There was a lot of trial and error involved in the creation of Truffull.
Portal Launched in spite of the Pandemic
It is fair to say that the Covid-19 pandemic took everyone by surprise including those involved in the UK property market. Barker and Appelbe decided to launch Truffull anyway. They figured that with lockdown easing the market would pick up again and the demand would be there.
While there are still coronavirus restrictions in place that restrict property viewings and subsequent transactions, the guys believe that their Truffull website will appeal to property investors across the country.
Also the property market has shown signs of recovery recently so they believed it was a very good time to launch their portal. We believe that they were right to launch now but only time will tell if this works out well for them.
Upturn in the UK Property Market
A number of property developers say that they are experiencing an upturn in the level of enquiries that they have received recently. They put this down to a pent up demand from investors to get moving again now that there is an easing of lockdown restrictions.
The downtime caused by the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in many property investors rethinking their portfolios and they also have access to some of the cheapest funding from lenders for many years. This has all helped to light a fire under property investors but they still need to find the right property projects to invest in.
Trufull helps you to find Potential Investment Properties
Truffull is trying to help with the age old problem of helping property investors find projects that have good potential. Some investors spend a lot of time searching through Zoopla and Rightmove only to be disappointed with the lack of opportunities they find.
The owners of Truffull wanted to save property investors a lot of time in finding the right properties in a way that was cost effective. To overcome the frustration of finding potential property projects, Truffull provide qualified leads that are vetted and a very simple process to follow.
Property Investors like the concept of Truffull
Early indications are that property investors have received the portal favourably. Property investor and property sourcing expert, Rob Smallbone, said that he found Truffull easy to , and very straight forward and simplistic for making enquiries about potential properties and arranging viewings.
He said that he would recommend the Truffull website to all property investors. Barker and Appelbe plan to expand over the coming years by servicing markets overseas. They are committed to employing people across the UK as their business grows.
