Unique insights on Real Estate Crowdfunding

By Steve Cinelli , CrowdFundBeat Sr. Editor, @stevecinelli
On the cusp of the IMN conference on Real Estate Crowdfunding, it is fascinating how different platforms are repositioning themselves as often as those running for president.  Are we an insider or an outsider? Are we a lender or an investor?   Who do we serve? Women, Latinos, the disenfranchised?  How bout the sponsors, or is it the investors?  Do we play within the rules or strike out to create new, more resonant rules.

Are we a crowdfunding platform or a capital marketplace?   The ability and practice of changing spots in how one is defined is quite captivating.  Does this suggest that one is responding to need, or actually trying to define an indigenous space?  Quite fascinating.   All said, it is worth noting  the effort of RealtyXE, a early stage platform, that is trying to differentiate.  One of the partners, Sydney Armani, has chronicled the industry for awhile in his capacity as Publisher of Crowdfundbeat.com, the leading web voice for the space.  Will a focus on “gap financing” and social value create a difference in positioning from other temporal stalwarts, who knows?   But, knowledge is an asset.  We shall see what happens.

According to their site, RealtyXE was founded to provide a pathway to for the “Digital Economy” fostering new opportunities, both in real estate and community development projects. They are different, which is why they chose Napa, California as their headquarters to position as a lifestyle investment brand.
