The House Crowd invites Weber Shandwick Manchester inside

The House Crowd, a new crowdfunding platform for property investment, has appointed Weber Shandwick Manchester as its PR agency.

The House Crowd is a crowdfunding platform for property investment.

Headquartered in Hale, Greater Manchester, The House Crowd brings people power to the property market by allowing consumers to invest as little as £1,000 in domestic properties purchased specifically to be refurbished and converted into a high yielding rental property.

Frazer Fearnhead, director at The House Crowd, said: “As an alternative to other typical investment opportunities such as Isas and savings accounts, we provide higher returns and access to a tangible asset class – a house! The team at Weber Shandwick impressed us with their sector knowledge and strong media contacts.”

Jo Leah, managing director and chair English regions & Wales at Weber Shandwick, said: “We’ve all heard of crowdfunding for business but bringing people power to the housing market was a concept we immediately bought in to. The House Crowd is really a trailblazer for this alternative investment option.”

Weber Shandwick Manchester will deliver a national media relations and social media campaign to drive consumer awareness of crowdfunded property investment and raise the profile of the business.
