Sharing net costs of investing in LettingSupermarket.com

LettingSupermarket sign 2I have recently been asked by potential investors to help them understand the benefits of investing and the true net costs taking into account how many properties they have to manage, tax relief and possible future dividends.

Therefore having done the calculations in easy tabled format I thought it would be worth sharing this with Property118 readers. Please see below

The Crowdfunding campaign launched by LettingSupermarket.com has now exceeded £100,000.

The initial target was £125,000 and once this figure is exceeded the Directors have an option to close the campaign and take the funding or to over-fund and dilute their own share capital.

Several Property118 members have contributed to the equity based crowd-funding and will receive shares in the company in return.

If you were holding off your investment, now is the time to commit before it is too late.
