This is going to be a long one. Since I didn’t write almost anything here in September, lots of thoughts piled up. So, grab a coffee (or a beer) and enjoy. I’ve managed this month to build myself a small website that lets me upload exported transactions and loan data Read more…
This is the 7th month I keep detailed track of my p2p lending portfolio. While it does provide value to me, I’m not sure it does the same for you. So I’ll try to keep this light and short.
I have a small real estate crowdfunding portfolio that I keep track of every month. It’s separated from my p2p lending portfolio primarily because these are not quite p2p investments. My investments here are in platforms that focus on 2 types of investments: buy-to-sell and rental properties.
It’s been fun and educating to keep track of my investments in p2p lending for the past 6 months. I feel I learned a lot this year from this.
This June marks half a year since I started to keep track of my real estate crowdfunding portfolio. For most of the platforms I have in my portfolio, it also marks 6 months since I started investing in them.
My real estate crowdfunding portfolio grows at a lower speed than the p2p lending one. The month of May was mostly uneventful. No new platforms added, very few investments made, no big changes on the platforms I’m invested in.
My p2p lending portfolio didn’t suffer any major changes since last month. I’ve only moved around some of the funds I had on PeerBerry to other platforms.
It’s the third month I’m keeping track of my real estate investments portfolio and I’m starting to like it. I was even looking forward to seeing how my investments are doing.
My portfolio is doing a bit better than last month. In March I’ve received a rental income of around 4 EUR, 25% increase from my February income of 3 EUR. It’s not exactly what I imagined when I envisioned my real estate empire but everyone has to start somewhere. I’m starting from 4 EUR a month.
I’ve also added around 450 EUR to my real estate portfolio this month, pushing my total investments to 2750 EUR. (I’m converting British Pounds to Euro and in doing so I’m approximating the value of my investments.)
