What is Carlton Crowdfund?


Carlton Crowdfund specializes in commercial real estate equity and debt.


They had good investment volume in our last review (7) and this year grew a little to 8 open investments.

They are one of the few sites that don't charge investors any fees. However they are not cheap to invest in. The minimum investment is one of the largest in the industry at $250,000. 

At that investment level, you might expect bankruptcy protection to be included. However, it isn't. On the other hand, the site says they are willing to add appropriate terms to investors who request it. In my opinion, investors should require this if they choose to participate on the platform.


  • Advantages: Good investment volume (8 open when we looked). Zero investor fees.

  • Disadvantages: Extremely high minimum investment of $250,000. No bankruptcy protection terms set up in advance, "...but would be negotiable to include them."

  • Accolades: Shooting star 2017-2018 award (increased from #21 to #5)

Code of Ethics: I do not receive any money from any sponsor or platform for anything including guides, tutorials, postings, reviews, referring investors, affiliate leads or advertising. Nor do I negotiate special terms for myself above what I negotiate for the benefit of members. For clarity: I do receive monetary compensation in 2 ways. Site members can send donations (and a $200 donation entitles them to access my personal low-level due diligence notes on investments I've put money into). And if the club chooses to create a feeder, I take a fee as manager (and keep the excess beyond expenses). Additionally I receive the same non-monetary compensation all club members do: access to otherwise inaccessible sponsors, millions of dollars of special deals and discounts, the satisfaction of giving back and helping others, and more.
