Real Estate Crowdfunding Enters the Innovation Zone

If the crowdfunding community were a neighborhood, and a development sign welcomed all who enter, it would say Innovation Zone. Enter with Abandon. Innovation positively impacts our economy, spurring benefits that cross all socioeconomic lines. Have you recognized the guarded disconnect between people in highly populated areas, struggling to succeed, and rarely able to afford a break in routine? With technology and forward thinking at our fingertips, we have a great opportunity to bridge that gap and, thus, seed communities. Innovate your reality. Times of most question and strife, are fertile ground to a community willing to grow. Needing each other creates community. And, building upon each others’ innovation makes communities blossom.

Innovation inspires!

A community uncovered.

The affordable and environmentally sound housing dearth has a lot of us on guard, but lets recognize the opportunity that this challenge provides. We could all take care not to defend familiar against the unfamiliar; lest we limit ourselves, and our communities from what a community of collective thought can provide. We can direct our thinking to an Innovation Zone, realizing that innovation, especially during tough times, is not synonymous with frivolity. Innovation is synonymous with hope, real progress, and Growing Communities. Innovation becomes reality through crowdfunding.

~A collective good, further benefiting from collective knowledge and resources. Creating homes, families, and yes: communities!

Real estate crowdfunding has proven, time and again, to create collective possibility where it hasn’t existed before. Being freed of limits, what would you innovate, would it involve a team, and could it inspire a reciprocating community?
