An Introduction toCrowdfunding for Real Estate
An Alternative to Traditional Lending
Patch of Land’s goal is to solve the problem of inefficient, fragmented, and vague real estate loans by using technology and data-driven processes to create transparency and efficiently underwrite projects for borrowers with real estate projects that are routinely bypassed by traditional lenders.
Crowdfunding Real Estate Investments
Part of the problem with traditional, non-crowdfunded real estate investing is the lack of transparency and control investors have over the portfolio.
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT) minimizes the active participation of investors and typically has low-yields on top of high charge fees but the landscape of investing in real estate has since evolved with new and creative ways for participation, one of which is crowdfunding.
Patch of Land’s streamlined real estate crowdfunding platform enables accredited investors to choose pre-vetted and pre-funded projects they want to include in their portfolio. These crowdfunded real estate investments can earn investors up to 12% in a year alone since every project has been carefully studied and evaluated for investor confidence.
Besides the social good of improving properties through crowdfunding, real estate properties around the area also have something good to gain from such projects. Revitalizing once devastated communities can increase the value of surrounding real estate, brought about by the upturn in activity. In turn, crowdfunding investments create more opportunities because investors can choose to reinvest in that area.
Patch of Land has made it easy for accredited investors to get started by getting the process of crowdfunding for real estate down to six simple steps. All crowdfunding investments are presented with utmost accuracy and transparency. No hidden fees and no secret charges.
