Top 15 Real Estate Crowdfunding Sites/Funds
2019 Honors and Reviews
(for non-accredited/every day investors)
Non-accredited investors (i.e. everyday investors) had only a handful of choices last year. And many weren't that great. Some came with large fees and some with questionable marketing.
Thankfully this year the pack has exploded to 15! And with more choice, fees have come down, the questionable marketing has gone down, and quality is increasing. So today investors have a different problem: which one to choose?
Well, we've done months of legwork (including interviewing sites, investors, and poring through legal documents), to help you figure that out. Below are the industry honors and reviews of each site. (And if you're a data person, here's the enormous head-to-head comparison matrix that details all the data points we were able to gather).
And if you're newbie, and still confused and want a simple guide on how to pick, check out our "Which one should I pick?" guide.)
(Note: if you're an accredited investor, you have a lot more options than this list, and most are a lot less expensive. Please see the rankings and reviews for accredited investors, instead.)
