The Real Estate Crowdfunding Review November 2018 Update

Newcomer platform Cadre refuses to answer public questions, but Mr. Google still has plenty to say. The private investor club joins the billionaire club. And 3 feeder funds with reduced minimums.

(Usual disclaimer: I'm just an investor expressing my personal opinion and not a financial advisor, attorney or accountant. Consult your own financial professionals before making any financial decisions. Code of Ethics: We do not accept any money from any sponsor or platform for anything, including postings, reviews, referring investors, affiliate leads or advertising. Nor do we negotiate special terms for ourselves in the club above what we negotiate for the benefit of members.).

New reviews:

  • Cadre Cadre is a platform that claims on its public website to specialize in commercial real-estate (CRE) investments. Unfortunately, it also refused to answer all our questions for this public review. (Joining a small group of platforms that on the whole have ended up having "less than stellar" track records). So, forced to go with Mr. Google, I found some very interesting articles on Cadre from Fortune Magazine and Bloomberg Business News alleging financial improprieties. (Read more...)

Private Investor Club Updates: (Membership in the club is free, but requires verification that the investor has no ties to platforms or sponsors.)

Joining the Billionaire Club

Thanks to everyone who completed the new club survey. We've grown from $500 million to over $1.35 billion in investable assets, which helps a lot in negotiating special deals for members. If you haven't completed your survey, please help us get more deals by doing so. (More info...)

Code of Ethics: To remove conflicts of interest that are rife on other sites, I / we do NOT accept any money from any outside sponsors or platforms for ANYTHING. This includes but is not limited to: no money for postings, nor will, nor tutorials, nor guides, nor advertising, nor affiliate leads etc. 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 two ways: via donations or a club feeder. 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). Very occasionally a sponsor may choose to reimburse some of the costs of creating a feeder as well.


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.
