Real Estate Crowdfunding platforms

By CrowdFundbeat  Data  2013 all right reserved 

Niche Real Estate Crowdfunding platforms have really started taking off in the last few months. With last year’s US commercial real estate transaction volume of $290 billion in 2012, it’s easy to see why there are so many platforms coming up.  There is plenty of space in this niche market for many platforms to get involved.  Let me know if there are any others out there.

Here are a list of US real estate crowdfunding platforms: (Ones that have * mean the platforms are currently open for business)

  1. Crowd Mason – Currently in beta and based out of NY, this platform does what a crowdfunding site does best and brings developers/sponsors and investors together.
  2. Realty Mogul* – Came out of Microsoft Accelerator and one of the first RE crowdfunding platforms to go live.  18 properties currently funded for over $3 million in total.
  3. Primarq* – Has a unique platform in which investors help people buy homes and home owners can leverage the equity in their homes.
