Real Estate Crowdfunding: Should I Invest?

This is an advertisement. We have partnered and are compensated by RealtyShares. RealtyShares is a funding platform who has partnered with North Capital Private Securities (NCPS), member FINRA/SIPC. Private securities on the RealtyShares platform are offered through NCPS. Private investments are highly illiquid and are not suitable for all investors. Neither RealtyShares nor NCPS makes any recommendations or provides advice about investments.

One of the hottest trends today in the real estate industry is real estate crowdfunding via several websites, including well-known platforms such as RealtyShares (to learn more about RealtyShares, click here). But just because it’s hot, does that mean it’s a good investment? As with any investment, crowdfunding offers the potential for solid returns—but it also involves risk and requires due diligence and informed decision-making.

In this video, Brandon Turner mentions crowdfunding in comparison to stock investing. It is important to note that while both of these strategies are popular forms of investing, they differ in several ways. Crowdfunding (and real estate investing in general) is affected by general housing market fluctuations, while the stock market is influenced by several factors of the economy at large, as well as management of and value created by specific companies.

Check out the below episode of the #AskBP Podcast, where Brandon shares his thoughts on the truth behind crowdfunding and how to get started with that niche. Stay tuned!
