WILMINGTON, N.C. — ConnectedInvestors.com, the world’s largest real estate investors network and marketplace, today announced the launch of the first of it’s kind real estate crowdfunding marketplace. The crowdfunding marketplace allows investors to quickly locate and evaluate investments available across nearly the entire real estate crowdfunding industry in the US and across the world.
Launched in 2005, the ConnectedInvestors.com social network provides more than 250,000 real estate investors direct access to off-market investment properties from other investors, property locators, hedge funds, and asset managers. The addition of crowdfunding to their marketplace now allows individuals with as little as $5 to invest in real estate through leveraging the Connected Investors marketplace and community.
Ross Hamilton, founder and CEO of Connected Investors noted, “Many people are looking for opportunities to build wealth in real estate but the traditional ways create many roadblocks – through real estate crowdfunding, real estate, and investing in particular, has been transformed. We recognized this fact and developed an effective, simple, and affordable way for anyone to get involved in a real estate investment.”
The Connected Investors crowdfunding marketplace allows the investor to select investment opportunities by the location, rate of return, investment amount, along with other investing parameters.
“Real Estate crowdfunding has exploded and now more than 85 crowdfunding sites exist. With all of that comes complexity for the investor wanting to find returns. We already had the network, so we simplified the process and in turn, the opportunity,” said Marty Coyne, CTO of Connected Investors. “We’ve developed a “Kayak-like” responsive search engine that presents opportunities to the investor without having to deal with 85 different sites.”
Crowdfunding investment group, Patch of Land’s CEO Jason Fritton said, “Connected Investors is bringing awareness to what Patch of Land and what the industry as a whole can offer investors – and they do it in a simple and streamlined way.”
With over 250,000 members Connected Investors is larger than all 85+ real estate crowdfunding portals combined and looks to bring mass awareness to an industry with an estimated market size of $11 trillion during its infancy.
Connected Investors is a dynamic Real Estate Investors’ Marketplace & Community launched in 2005 to connect investors with each other and investment properties, funding, investing education, software and marketing resources.
