First Hyper-Local Real Estate Platform in the Twin Cities  

We are all familiar with the trend of national crowdfunding platforms, offering exclusive access to real estate investment opportunities that most accredited investors would never see; deals such as the World Trade Center throughFundRise or the Hard Rock Hotel through Realty Mogul. At last count, there were
118 real estate crowdfunding platforms, with new ones seeming to spring updaily. While these portals remain persistent to enter the market in droves, we are starting to see trends that direct property-based crowdfunding investments a little closer to home. What we are seeing, more frequently in the market than ever, is an emersion of
hyper-local real estate companies, run by industry experts who know the markets
 they are serving as well as the back of their hand. These new platforms, which operate within a local context, are able to more expertly navigate the often-murky waters of real estate investment and avoid the significant underwriting risks that affect national players.
One such hyper-local platform launching this week is SaundersDailey, a community-funded real estate investment marketplace specializing in properties in the Twin Cities area with minimum investments of $2,500.
The SaundersDailey team has more than a century of local real estate investment knowledge through
running two of the biggest real estate offices in the Minneapolis-St. Paul market, in addition to all being long time investors.
“Our team knows Twin Cities market street-by-street. Through the platform, we hope to leverage our insider knowledge to benefit our investors and transform how people own real estate,” explains co-founder and managing partner, Marshall Saunders, who previously built, owned and operated the largest
RE/MAX franchise in the world.
In a crowdfunding sphere increasing in scope on a daily basis, a key advantage for players of the game is to gravitate toward platforms that offer extensive local expertise and can, in turn, boast the highest quality deals.
For investment opportunities that have a better chance at viability in years to come, it is clear that real estate is local play and that we should expect to see more of these hyper-local platforms on the horizon.
