Available as: Automated Investment Strategies
In January 2022, EstateGuru replaced the former auto-Invest feature with automated investment strategies. Instead of requiring a minimum investment of 250€, the strategies work already with a minimum of 50€ per investment. There are two presets for the strategies: "conservative" and "balanced". They differ in the strength of collateral (Loan To Value), the selection of countries and other risk adjustments. For more advanced investors, EstateGuru now offers individual strategy configuration possiblities.
The secondary market is available but needs to be consented and activated by the investor. There is currently a survey running whether the secondary market should be made available also for auto-invest.
Available as: Instant Exit Program
In October 2021, EstateGuru launched the instant exit programm. Next to the secondary market, investors can quickly liquidate their loans by returning them to EstateGuru. BE WARNED that a 35% discount is due to be taken from EstateGuru. In almost every case it would make more sense to sell a loan via the secondary market. Latest at high discounts of 10-15% you should find a buyer.
EstateGuru has a due diligence process for every loan project. Each loan is secured with a mortgage. In case, the borrower cannot pay back the loan, the property would be seized.
