New way of funding your investing?? - Crowdsurfing for investors??

I was reading Property Observer today and saw an article about a book written by Craig Turnbull called Crowdfunding Real Estate - The Next Generation of Property Investing.

Sounds an interesting approach to sourcing funds?? It could take a while to raise the necessary funds if you sourced crowdfunding for the necessary cash (be it the deposit or full purchase price!)

Link to his website if it sparks an interest -
