Real estate crowdfunding is an investment option that’s seeing phenomenal growth. Crowdfunding platforms worldwide generated $10 billion in capital for 2014, funding everything from startups to major commercial real estate projects like 3 World Trade Center in New York. Real estate investment is the fastest-growing segment of crowdfunding, expected to generate $2.5 billion by the end of 2015. This rapid growth has been spurred by changes in related SEC regulations, beginning with the 2012 JOBS Act. This opened the door to real estate crowdfunding to a wider pool of investors, including those who are considered “unaccredited.” This group accounts for more than 100 million people in the U.S., who have up to now been effectively shut out of CRE investment. Recent approval of the Act’s Title III rules removed more barriers to smaller investors. These will be enacted in 2016, and this will likely generate a wave of new activity for real estate crowdfunding.
