One of the hottest trends today in the real estate industry is real estate crowdfunding. 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.
