Find your House Crowd Home
We are House Crowd Developments
House Crowd Developments was formed in 2016 as the development arm of multi-award-winning peer-to-peer property lending platform, The House Crowd.
Since inception, we’ve delivered hundreds of new homes in prominent towns and villages across the north west, such as Wilmslow, Alderley Edge, Sale, Frodsham, Marple, Oldham, Mossley, Northwich, Sandbach and Crewe.
Due to the unique way in which our developments are funded, our mission is to provide ‘houses for the people, funded by the people’. This philosophy drives us to ensure every home we craft fulfils some very specific objectives:
- is the very highest quality in terms of design, finish and specification
- is in an appealing and convenient location that will bring true quality of life to buyers
- and is realistically priced and, therefore, affordable for many
Frazer Fearnhead, CEO
Frazer is founder and CEO of The House Crowd Group of companies. A qualified solicitor and true entrepreneur, he began investing in London in the mid-90’s and worked for an investment consultancy helping clients invest in buy-to-let property. In 2005, he set up his own consultancy, ‘The Armchair Property Investor’, and sold the business two years later for £2.25M
Following the financial crisis in 2008, when Frazer saw banks seize assets from individuals, property investors, developers and many other businesses, he was motivated to create a better business model that enabled people to build their wealth in property without using the banks and without having to save deposits and take out mortgages.
He founded The House Crowd in 2011 and, at the time, it was the first property crowdfunding company in the world. Since launch, The House Crowd has helped clients successfully invest over £125 Million in UK property.
In 2016, Frazer founded House Crowd Developments to deliver high quality, well specified homes at sensible prices in places people want to live. By creating a housebuilder business, not only could the company develop saleable homes to increase the chances of a solid return for House Crowd investors, but it could provide a better quality of life and value for money for homebuyers who purchase a House Crowd Developments home.
Frazer takes an active role in all projects undertaken by House Crowd Developments and inspires the company’s mission to provide high quality, affordable ‘houses for the people, funded by the people’.
Justin joined House Crowd Developments in 2017. His entrepreneurial background perfectly suits the pioneering spirit of The House Crowd Group of companies, and has equipped him with a solid understanding of the sales and marketing process, land acquisition and negotiation, and development finance, purchasing and compliance, customer service and team management. Justin also spent 12 months on a building site ‘getting his hands dirty’ to understand exactly what it takes to deliver a housing development from start to finish.
Justin leads all House Crowd Development projects, working closely with the company’s in-house construction team as well as external build contractors and professional partners to see a project through from inception to final handover.
He is also responsible for sourcing all of the company’s land opportunities to ensure a strong pipeline of development projects. He is interested in land suitable for development of ten or more dwellings in a sustainable north west location with or without planning permission and will honour land introductions in the usual way.
Rick moved into the legal industry to develop his career as a residential conveyancer. After starting out as an admin assistant, he showed desire to learn and progressed to become a fee earner, working on everything from unregistered property, high end residential houses and high-rise apartments to new build developments and pretty much everything in between. He joined The House Crowd in 2018 and works across all businesses within the Group, managing the legal side of land acquisition, property sales and aftercare for House Crowd Developments.

House Crowd Developments provides ‘homes for the people, funded by the people’.
With this principle in mind, every home is priced so as to be affordable and comes equipped with a huge range of desirable features which many homebuilders would charge extra for as ‘standard’.
This means that a House Crowd home is not only great value for money, it is enjoyable to live in and a sound investment for the years to come.
Every House Crowd Home includes:
- A designer handleless kitchen in a contemporary finish
- Fully integrated appliances from a leading manufacturer
- Contemporary style large format tiled floors in all kitchen/dining areas
- Designer bathrooms and wet room style en suites
- Contemporary style large format tiling combinations to all bathroom/en suite walls and floors
