“Sign up for a real estate crowdfunding platform. But not just any platform. There’s a lot of players in the space. Only a select few are quality players which should be trusted with your money” writes Luke Lango for InvestorPlace.
Real estate crowdfunding platforms are websites which permit investors to invest in real estate projects online. Before the real estate crowdfunding industry emerged just a few years ago, investing in real estate meant purchasing a property. Now, anyone can get a piece of the action – both accredited and non-accredited investors alike. Returns on these investments can be quite attractive and can provide a steady income without you having to do too much hard work. It’s what you’d call a win-win situation.
That might be why crowdfunding for real estate has been growing in popularity, both for investors looking to diversify and as a way for first-time investors to enter the market.
Investor Place ranks Small Change as one of the best (and most unique) operators in the real estate crowdfunding space. Small Change is like no other because both accredited and non-accredited investors can invest as little as $500 in projects which make a positive impact on neighborhoods and cities.
Their four other picks include two that permit non-accredited investors alongside accredited investors. Those are Fundrise, one of earliest platforms to emerge and now one of the biggest. There you can invest in an e-REIT because it’s hassle-free and easy for first-time investors. And the second is Groundfloor where anyone can make small, fractionalized investments into real estate loans.
Cadre and ArborCrowd are also included in the list of 5 and are both specifically for accredited investors only who have cash to spare and some experience in real estate investment
