Frequently asked questions

About the platform

What is Cofundie
Cofundie is a Real estate investment platform. We make it simple for you to invest in properties built using alternative materials & techniques and earn returns on rent & sale. You can buy shares in income producing real estate in less than 5 mins and begin receiving returns once the building is ready
What are alternative materials & techniques ?
Some of the materials being used are mud, containers & hydraform. New techniques include rammed earth building (SRE), Prefab walls & 3D Printed walls
Why alternative materials?
The real estate industry is changing. Concrete is no longer able to meet the demand for affordable buildings common in Sub-saharan Africa, more and more developers are beginning to use materials & techniques other than traditional concrete. They are cheaper, faster to build and there is no compromise in structural integrity. Cofundie is on the forefront of promoting the use of these materials because we believe this is the future
Who can invest with Cofundie?
Anyone can as long as you are legally identifiable and are legally eligible to under the laws of your residence country.
How is risk managed?
All investments are risky, but we take different measures to ensure security as well as high yields for all Cofunders. 1- All assets & rental income is insured with reputable insurance companies. 2- All partner property developer are put through a stringent due diligence process to ensure that they are credible before they are allowed to pitch deals. 3- The deals are put through a 3 stage process using proprietary models developed by Cofundie which ensure both that the deals are profitable as well as have reasonable risk profiles . Our investment committee is made up of Real Estate experts, Independent experts and the Cofundie Team.
