23 August 2022: Real estate Investment platform PropReturns has become one of the leading real estate investment platforms in India within a short span of two years. With over 8000 investors and 600+ real estate developers, commercial property owners and channel partners having benefited from using the platform, PropReturns has achieved a 100 crore+ Gross Transaction Value (GTV). With the aim to build the largest real estate investment ecosystem in India, PropReturns intends to scale up the company by growing transaction volume by 2X along with a team expansion to 40 plus by the end of this quarter.

With an objective to provide transparency in real estate investments, PropReturns provides investors access to curated supply and market trends of the property, allowing them to make an investment decision backed by data. This young proptech startup boasts of an inventory of 600 plus investment opportunities (mainly pre-leased) offering an investor a variety of asset classes such as pre-leased commercial units, plots, REITs, distressed assets from which they can choose to invest. The turnaround time on closing a pre-leased sale transaction is quick and usually takes 7-10 days which is a stellar achievement as per industry standards.

The real estate investment platform is partnering with more commercial property owners, real estate developers and channel partners to provide them an opportunity to list and sell their assets immediately on the marketplace.

Kenish Shah, Co-Founder, PropReturns said “PropReturns provides instant liquidity for property owners and developers who want to sell their commercial properties which are already rented out. Owners and developers can list their assets on the platform by providing some basic data and our algorithms verify and convert that data into rich financial metrics for over 8000 property investors on the platform. The turnaround time to sell a good asset on the marketplace is less than 10 days”.
