How Does SmartCrowd Choose the Properties?

SmartCrowd bases its selection process on a 100-point proprietary screening tool to provide users only the best properties. Our specialized team carefully vets the properties available and considers a third-party valuation before setting a score. The higher the score, the more likely a property will be listed on the platform. For this reason, only a small percentage of the properties viewed to end up on the platform.

We evaluate crucial aspects of the property such as area, surrounding development, service charges, building quality, number of amenities, developer, and expected supply. Overall, SmartCrowd does all the work on your behalf. So, you can sit back and relax!
