Real Estate Development

Real estate crowdfunding is a new and innovative use of Regulation Crowdfunding that allows non-accredited investors to invest in real estate deals on a FINRA and SEC certified portal. Real estate crowdfunding uses the crowd-funding model to raise funds for real estate deals all across the nation and locally at the same time. 

Portfolio Diversification 

Unlike REITs, real estate crowdfunding presents an opportunity for non-accredited investors to invest in a wide variety of properties without having to deal with the mortgage brokers, real estate agents and contractors.  In stark contrast to the traditional model of real estate investing. 

The Platform

Real estate crowdfunding platform manages the daily tasks to make sure that all of the day-to-day operations are completed. This allows you to become a passive real estate investor with a diverse portfolio of projects that could range from debt to equity deals. Instead of the normal fix and flip model for small investors.  

An Innovative and New Investment Model 

In the good ole days investing in real estate depended mostly on business connections and being in the right circles. It was all about who you know and how much money you had to invest in these secret deals. The Securities Act of 1933,  made it impossible for non-accredited investors to invest in private securities. Since the deals could not publicly solicited this was like a secret society of investors that was closed to the public.

High Minimums 

The minimum threshold to invest in these deals was usually in the six-figure range. The high amount needed to invest coupled with a ban on investment solicitation made it impossible for any average investors to play in this exclusive club of real estate investors. This was a closed market for developers, the pool of investors that had unrestricted access to all of the best private deals. 

Crowdfunding is the Future of Real Estate Investing

When the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 was passed everything changed. On May 16, 1016 Regulation Crowdfunding (Reg CF) became the law of the land and now non-accredited investors were able to enter the real estate investment arena as developers and investors. This is going to be a game changer. Today small scale developers have the unrestricted ability to directly market to accredited investors on a registered portal. Real estate developers have adopted the crowdfunding model to find new investors who are eager to enter the market. Potential investors can literally choose where to invest their money from their smartphones and tablets.
