What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of investment and financing method. The crowdfunding platform will display the audited projects on the website and financing to the public in the form of small units of equity or products. Ordinary investors can invest without leaving their homes. Since professionals from Real estate, law, and finance industries will handle various documents and formalities, investors do not need professional knowledge of real estate. Even if investors in China can legally and conveniently invest in American real estate market. Financiers can even get a wider source of funding through crowdfunding and are easier and faster to get approve than traditional lenders. The biggest difference between crowdfunding and REITs is that investors do not know or cannot choose specific investment projects when investing in trusts, and investment trusts need to charge an average of 14% of investors' fees before invest, which result in a cumbersome investment process and no transparent. Through crowdfunding platform, investors can invest in their favorite projects according to their own preferences, which makes the investment process more transparent and controllable. At the same time, the platform can also provide investors with more diverse choices.

1. What is Real Estate Investing?

Real estate investing involves the purchase, ownership, management, rental and/or sale of real estate for profit. Improvement of realty property as part of a real estate investment strategy is generally considered to be a sub-specialty of real estate investing called real estate development. Real estate is an asset form with limited liquidity relative to other investments, it is also capital intensive (although capital may be gained through mortgage leverage) and is highly cash flow dependent. If these factors are not well understood and managed by the investor, real estate becomes a risky investment. The primary cause of investment failure for real estate is that the investor goes into negative cash flow for a period of time that is not sustainable, often forcing them to resell the property at a loss or go into insolvency.

Some real estate investment organizations, such as real estate investment trusts (REITs) and some pension funds and Hedge funds, have large enough capital reserves and investment strategies to allow 100% equity in the properties that they purchase. This minimizes the risk which comes from leverage, but also limits potential ROI.
With the signing of the JOBS Act in April 2012 by President Obama there has been an easing on investment solicitations. A newer method of raising equity in smaller amounts is through real estate crowdfunding which can pool accredited and/or non-accredited investors together in a special purpose vehicle for all or part of the equity capital needed for the acquisition.
