I wonder if this question was directed towards REAL crowdfunding, the type that levels the playing field and lets everyone invest? CrowdStreet limits investments to the very wealthy. There's a growing number of real estate crowdfunding platforms that let everyone invest using Reg CF My platform, SmallChange.co, for a start. That's all we are focused on. Republic.co has launched a real estate section. Who else is out there (and apologies to everyone else if I'm blanking!)
I see the future of Real Estate CF as a partnership between developers and general contractors, as well as DIY landlords, specifically in the 10 units or less domain. Meaning, Developers will partner with Funding Portals to supplement their private money deals and then slowly transition to Crowd funded deals.
For General Contractors this is a Portal move. I see Funding Portals partnering with GCs, so that GCs can provide all the construction consulting services needed. Every Real Estate portal needs a "This Old House" / Tim The Tool Man Taylor general contractor to help them understand the real cost of building, remodeling and rehabing properties, as well as executing and managing the projects after they've been funded. For more on that GC / Portal partnership idea reach out to email@example.com
Hope that helps!
Good luck and may the odds and the algorithms forever be in your favor.
