Zeoli, CrowdFunding Beat Guest Contributor, Do you remember that scene from the movie Tommy Boy where the store manager rants about the importance of having a guarantee on the product box “calling out, I’ll never let you down, but if I do I’m gonna make things ALL better.” I can’t help but be reminded of that scene whenever I see real estate crowdfunding portals using words like “asset-backed” and/or “guaranteed” to describe their lending investment opportunities.
