A new era in property investment?

They picked a right old day to launch, but Opromark might just be one of the most interesting new property investment schemes in a long time. Effectively a trading floor for shares in buy-to-let properties it allows members (membership is free) to buy and sell shares (for as little as £1) in a range of properties, sharing the rental income as a kind of dividend, and exposing themselves to profits from a rising market without the responsibility or risk of buying a whole property. We’re going to join and have a fiddle around in the coming days, but from where we’re sitting right now it looks very interesting. And the website’s laudably clear and well-designed. More, here.n
