Finance » Crowdfunding
Crowdfunding is one of the new buzz words to hit the financial services industry and its benefits are now being realized in the real estate industry. Through crowdfunding, investors can pool money together and buy shares of real property like houses, apartment buildings, office buildings and retail centers.
Pacific Capital Partners maintains relationships with all of the major real estate crowdfunding firms, each of which has its own distinct appetites and processes. Through these relationships, we can place your project on the most appropriate and cost-effective platform that is tailored to your specific needs.
A recent study from Massolution reports that crowdfunding investors injected $1 billion into the U.S. real estate market last year. By the end of 2015, that number should climb to $2.5 billion. Advances like $100 investments, debt participation and availability to foreigners are contributing to this projected surge.
“It’s growing beyond expectations,” says Richard Swart, Massolution’s research adviser on the report. “When the JOBS Act passed we didn’t think real estate would be a part of it, but it turns out to be a more efficient way for investors to find good deals across the spectrum.”
