Real Estate Crowdfunding for projects under $100k

6 Replies

I'm looking for the right platform for to post smaller real estate purchases. Depending on the property I may fix and flip, or rent and hold. I do believe there are some pretty straightforward formulas to buying a profitable single and multi-family home. What I'm having trouble finding is a Crowdfunding site for projects under $100k.

I've done about a dozen projects in the last 15 years ($5k - $600k) or so and know that it isn't a passive business but does take skill and work to make a profit.

Any insight on what crowdfunding site to use to find investors for smaller projects?

Thanks in advance for your help.

There is a fixed cost and a time cost to doing these deals. The problem is that to do an offering to the "crowd" it would cost a lot of money in documents, compliance etc. and these costs are generally just about fixed so it would cost you a lot more than you probably want to pay. Also, from the platform's perspective it takes the same amount of time more or less to do a small offering as a larger one so they focus more on the latter.

Why not just go to hard money? its just about the same thing except the funding platforms take the loan directly to investors whereas hard money gets money from investors and then lends it to you. They are not that different.

I am thinking about setting up a crowdfunding website. The regulation is very difficult to meet with small properties. However, everything changes when you try to gather money from foreign investors. All of the regulations do not apply to foreign investors. It is under Regulation S.

I have several contacts overseas that can bring a serious amount of money to invest. I need many great deals. The deals must bringing-in at least 8-12% preferred return plus a significant percentage of profit when the deal is closed.

I posted elsewhere here that small change does equity crowdfunding for smaller projects but the minimum is around $50,000-$100,000 a project because Reg A compliance cost is pretty high.
