We covered a lot of Crowdfunding stories over the past year and are excited about the prospects for this exciting way of real estate investing. Recently on Forbes, Nav Athwal, Founder and CEO of RealtyShares, identified three trends to watch in Crowdfunding over 2017.
“Real estate crowdfunding continues to be a dynamic and ever-evolving industry, growing to an estimated $3.5 billion in 2016. By 2025, the crowdfunding industry as a whole is anticipated to be valued at more than $300 billion and online real estate marketplaces are primed to capitalize on that explosive growth.”
The three trends to watch are:
- Institutional capital takes center stage
- Non-accredited investors and eREITs gain steam
- Consolidation allows the key players to emerge
