Sol Maya Trickey on Reasons for Investing in Real Estate Crowdfunding

When it comes to real estate investing, the expansion of the internet has made crowdfunding an exciting and increasingly more popular way of doing it. Whether you’re a seasoned investor or someone who’s looking for a way to get started, crowdfunding provides many advantages. Here are just a few reasons to consider crowdfunding over more traditional methods of real estate investing.

 

Avoid the Bureaucratic Headaches

When you get involved in a real estate investment, it’s your responsibility to ensure everything is in order from getting the lender’s approval to ensuring building permits are granted. However, crowdfunding allows you to co-own an investment property without taking on these responsibilities. The original investor oversees the practical operations, so you don’t have to get involved with managing the property.

 

Invest With a Lower Risk

 

You can invest with just a few thousand dollars via a crowdfunding site, so you don’t have to worry about financing your investment. Since you don’t have loans, you won’t be risking more than you can handle. This also ensures you’ll get to keep more of any growth your capital earns.

 

More Information to Further Reduce the Risks

 

When you invest in real estate through traditional means, the information that a real estate agent or broker shares with you may be limited. However, the internet has made it possible to expand your knowledge about any investment that may interest you. To begin, crowdfunding sites themselves thrive on transparency, so you may find plenty of information on the investment property’s page. Additionally, you can find message boards, forums, and other resources that will help you supplement information about a property and its market.

 

Invest in Properties Beyond Your Community

 

Another advantage to real estate crowdfunding is that you have greater accessibility to more projects. If you don’t find anything that interests you in your own city, you can expand your search to cities throughout the country. You may even discover exciting investment opportunities beyond our borders.

 

Real estate crowdfunding is a great way to begin investing with a small amount of money. As you learn more about the individual websites, you’ll be better able to find more lucrative opportunities. This is an option that can help you raise enough capital to pursue more traditional real estate investing methods, or you may find that the freedom that crowdfunding provides is too tempting to give up.
