Real Estate Trend- Crowdfunding

There is a new way of funding Real Estate investments- crowdfunding. Instead of needing large amounts of capital and bank loans and personally researching properties to invest in Real Estate, investors can go through an online Real Estate crowdfunding site to search for properties to invest in while requiring far less capital. This may unseat traditional banks and investment players in the Real Estate world but overall, it may increase the amount of capital available for investment overall by allowing smaller investors to participate. As an example of how crowdfunding might work, on a site such as https://fundrise.com/ an investor can sign up, search for a property they’d like to fund, and with just $5000, invest in a Real Estate property. I chose this trend because it is an interesting trend and, potentially, a way to invest in Real Estate while I’m still young and not so rich. Image
