CEO’s 2015 Prediction on Real Estate Crowdfunding

By CrowdFunding Beat News Wire, Prediction on Real Estate Crowdfunding in 2015.

CFB has ask some of Real Estate Crowdfunding platform CEO’s to make predictions based on there knowledge and experience as what Industry and investors are expecting in 2015.

Jilliene Helman CEO of Realty Mogul,

“My prediction is that the IPO window for P2P companies will remain open, at least for the foreseeable future.  Wall Street will remain excited about the prospects of online origination and the scale that is associated with that and companies in this industry will continue to flourish in 2015.”




By Scott Picken is the CEO and founder of Wealth Migrate,

From a global perspective, real estate crowdfunding will continue to grow and gain traction as more investors worldwide will view these platforms as a simple – and safer – way to invest with the support of companies that are dominant in this space, rather than trying to do it all on their own. As a result, there will be far more controls from the SEC, and other bodies around the world, as these platforms continue to gain public acceptance. One trend we expect to see is an increase in niche portals that focus on just one sector, such as medical. Overall, the massive movement of capital from people who are investing internationally will continue with more major players getting involved in 2015. China alone saw over $15 billion invested in 2014 and this is expected to grow by 20% a year for the next decade. They are primarily investing in the USA, Australia and the UK, three of our strongest markets. More than 7% of all investment in residential property in the USA in 2014 was foreign investment. Crowdfunding will facilitate this further and accelerate this trend in 2015.

Scott Picken is the CEO and founder of Wealth Migrate, the premier global real estate investment marketplace. Scott has more than 16 years of international real estate industry experience and Wealth Migrate’s leadership team has been a part of $1.3 billion in real estate transactions worldwide.

Jesse Clem is the co-founder and CEO of Loquidity,

Real Estate platforms will continue their tremendous growth trajectory that we saw in 2014. As the investors and sponsors become aware of the options and added benefits that platforms such as Loquidity can provide vs. the use of traditional capital sources, adoption and use will continue to explode.

In our first syndication, 30% of our investors used their Self-Directed IRA to invest with. This is a strong indicator that with the accessibility to alternative assets investments like real estate on crowdfunding platforms, using self-directed funds will become more streamlined. The key here is education to the investors – letting them know that this option is available to them.

 We are seeing this as we travel around the country. We are having conversations with hedge funds managers about how to deploy capital with the crowd, or how to leverage the crowd to reduce their cost of capital. These conversations have changed from “could we?” to “how do we?” I think 2015 brings a flood of fund capital into this space.

There is a huge group of investors that want access to more asset classes. People today can speculate with the stock market and lose money quickly and with no recourse. In crowdfunding, with the proper oversight, the crowd can be protected from scams and bad actors, while still providing great opportunities for investment. In states like Michigan that have established a secondary market, some of these private placements shares will be able to be sold in the open market, thus bringing more liquidity to some of these asset classes as well. When we unlock the sources of capital that the unaccredited crowd can bring, capital will flow more freely and provide entrepreneurs and business’s another avenue for funds that will allow them to change the marketplace and then potentially, the world.

Real Estate Crowdfunding
Becoming an institutional business.  Model is replicating syndication models of the 1980s, but with online disclosures and intermediation.  Tough to scale and profitability is questioned based on current platform sizes and throughput.  Will be interesting to see any RECF major financings or exits.  Few have real IP value, as “quality deal flow” is ephemeral.
Future of online investment platforms
The “crowd” has given way to institutions as most of the capital is provided by larger investors (not a bad thing, but not the “crowd”).   Estimate that over half the platforms that were pursuing grandeur in early 2014 will either shut down, pivot, or be absorbed elsewhere by late 2015.  Those that raised outside capital have staying power, but business models need to proof up.  Title III is out til late 2015 if not longer.  And proposed recourse being laid on platforms will make operators wonder about the risk return proposition.
Peer 2 Peer Lending and Investing
More players entering as the demand for yield remains.  LC will use its new found currency and go on an acquisition binge as its market value as a fin tech consumer lending platform will regress to the metrics of a financial services business, so they will keep ahead of things by using stock and cash to buy things.  Prosper will be acquired over the next six months.
