Crowdfunding has totally disrupted the global investment model, providing new opportunities for investors of all kinds. In real estate alone, crowdfunding has altered the way people invest in property, turning an industry that was previously bogged down in paperwork and middle-men into a hassle-free way for people to grow their money with just a few clicks.
Crowdfunding has also taken investment out of the hands of high-net-worth individuals and opened up the market to anyone with a computer – you no longer have to be on the “inside” to have access to opportunities to invest. By allowing people to invest smaller amounts and share the overall investment, the high capital that was previously required to invest is no longer a restriction.
Geography is also no longer an issue, which is especially significant for the real estate market. Property investment used to be a local endeavour, but Real Estate Crowdfunding now allows you to invest in real estate that’s situated thousands of miles from your home. This means that people can now capitalise upon the profitability of popular global cities without needing to actually live locally, providing them with a better chance to make more stable, long-term gains.
The opportunity crowdfunding represents for investors is now being realised in almost every sector. Now is the time to get involved – here are a few numbers that demonstrate the profitability of this phenomenon:
