Look no further Afriscaper is here.
Afriscaper, an online technology platform developed to simplify real estate investing in emerging markets, is raising US$1 billion through crowdfunding for African real estate & infrastructure projects
According to data from the World Bank, it is estimated that Africans in Diaspora remit as much as $120 billion annually to their home countries.
The largest of such remittances goes to Nigeria. The country’s Finance Minister, Mrs Kemi Adeoshun recently announced that Nigerians in Diaspora remitted $35 billion home in 2016. This would make Nigeria’s Diaspora remittances the third largest in the world behind China & India.
Afriscaper was developed to simplify real estate investing in emerging markets by connecting real estate developers with international real estate investors through cutting-edge technology.
Real Estate Developers submit their plans to Afriscaper. Afriscaper conducts a 32-Step Pre-Vetting Process. Projects that pass this are handed over to PWC for due diligence. If the project is approved, it is listed on the Afriscaper platform.
So the platform allows anyone view high quality real estate projects that need funding and creates a transparent process for investors to invest directly in projects of their choice.
