This is the continuation of our post on the best real estate crowdfunding sites. Click here to read the first post of the series.
RealtyShares.com is another big player in the market headquartered in California. With assets in the billion-dollar mark, it adopts a different, more private way to promote their investments.
Focused on qualified accredited investors, the site distinguishes itself by the way they promote the investments, as they don’t list any opportunity in open sections of the site, making account creation mandatory for anyone who wants to invest. Instead of promoting each individual opportunity, they promote the platform as a whole, by maintaining a very active blog.
iFunding is not a player in the billion, nor even nearly that, range,, but they do well, with some million-dollar assets in their control. Minimum investment is $5,000, for accredited types.
Like RealtyShares, they don’t open many projects for the public, but they pick some to feature in their homepage, in order to attract investors.
iFunding distinguishes itself from the competition by the amount of information they make available for investors. They even offer webinars so the investors can gather together and ask questions before making their decision to invest.
Founded in 2013 in Portland, Oregon, Crowdstreet.com was formed by a group of real estate brokers specializing in commercial ventures.
Their portfolio is vast and spread throughout the US. Despite their focus on commercial venues, they have some multi-family projects as well.
Crowdstreet is among the sites that charge the highest minimum investment amount: $25,000.
Groundbreaker.co uses technology to grow a community of investors in real estate crowdfunding. They focus on offering a portal to third-party real estate brokers interested in getting equity investors.
The projects listed on their website are usually below $1 million, mostly single-family or multi-family projects.
Investments are not made directly on their website. Instead, investors click on projects and are directed to a portal page that belongs to the entity promoting the opportunity.
