LendInvest co-founders Christian Faes and Ian Thomas have participated in Plentific’s most recent fundraising round in an attempt to drive their mutually beneficial businesses forward. Faes has become a director representing the angel and venture capital investors in the portal.
Plentific.com is a UK property platform that was founded by ex-investment bankers and property developers Cem Savas and Emre Kazan.
The founders say they established the platform after realising how hard it was to find relevant information when buying a UK property and wanting to find home improvement professionals to boost investments. Plentific, which stands for ‘plenty’ of ‘fantastic’ resources is working with hundreds of professionals to aggressively build out is offering to homebuyers, property investors and entrepreneurs.
“We have seen a gap in the online property portal market in the UK for a long time, and Plentific are directly targeting this gap. Plentific brings together a much deeper level of information for property investors, than the other property listings sites.
“There is a natural overlap between LendInvest’s users (for both borrowers and investors) and Plentific’s users, which is why this strategic alliance is one that we’re very excited about."
Plentific is focused on helping UK retail consumers make well-informed property decisions and manage transactions in an efficient and transparent way. The company makes it easier for those looking to buy a home by offering a vast database of real estate listings; a Milestone Tracker to help with organising the buying process; Smarter financial calculations, which are fully integrated with the search tools and access to the best Property Coaches to make homebuying easier.
Cem Savas, co-founder at Plentific, added:
“We really like the guys at LendInvest and what they are doing for the UK mortgage market. They are applying technology to disrupt the property market, very much in the same way that we are seeking to do at Plentific. This alliance makes a lot of sense for us and we look forward to rolling out a range of collaborations with LendInvest in the near future.”
