5 Best Practices to take Advantage of Real Estate Crowdfunding

Aug 24, 2017

 

Real estate investment is one of the market’s most secure methods of growing your money, due mostly to its stability as a tangible asset and the fact that it is a necessary part of any economy’s infrastructure – after all, people will always need housing. Until recently, however, real estate investment was not a particularly straight forward process, nor was it available to any but a select few, being notorious for very high entrance prices and lengthy administration. But Real Estate Crowdfunding now provides an easy way to take advantage of the property market and collect healthy returns, be it for savings, retirement, or as part of a balanced investment portfolio.

In order to fully benefit from Real Estate Crowdfunding, it is important to understand what the practice is offering that wasn’t available before:

 

New accessibility

The Real Estate Crowdfunding model depends on multiple investors sharing the cost of a property, and then sharing the subsequent returns once that property’s value has increased; this means that investing in a property can now be done at a fraction of the cost of traditional real estate investment, giving you access to a market that was previously restricted to high-net-worth individuals.

 

Better diversification

Diversification is key to any lucrative investment portfolio – spreading money across multiple investments helps balance a portfolio’s risk profile, meaning that losses in one area are recuperated by gains in another. Real Estate Crowdfunding’s low upfront cost allows you to invest in multiple properties at the same time, thus increasing your chances of good returns and providing a robust buffer against losses.

 

International investment

Real Estate Crowdfunding is an all-online practice, so there is no need to have direct access to the property you’re investing in. This means that you can benefit from the desirability and profitability of locations half way around the world without ever needing to actually go there, safe in the knowledge that all local research and administration will be handled by the platform.

 

Speed and efficiency

Being all-online also means that the investment process is only a few clicks, with all necessary paperwork and due diligence being covered by the platform; this leaves you free to choose your property without being hampered by logistical or administration concerns.

 

Information, information, information

The Internet Age is all about access of information, and online Real Estate Crowdfunding is no different. All the information on the property and the investment is available to you direct from the platform you decide to invest with, dramatically reducing your own research time and thus streamlining the investment process.
