RealCrowd is for serious investors.
Our mission is to transform the real estate industry by giving investors the same direct and free access to commercial real estate that institutions, pension funds & university endowments have always had. Why? Because we believe commercial real estate offers benefits to investors that no other investment class can.
RealCrowd is about creating direct relationships. We are not a middleman.
We don't get in the way of the relationship, yes we provide the magic in the middle, but it's all about connecting YOU, the investor, direct to the real estate professionals. If you are looking for a crowdfunding platform that acts as hedge fund and puts a wall between you and the sponsor, please visit our competitors.
Our simplified approach, by not getting involved in the middle, allows capital to more efficiently flow to your bank account.
RealCrowd is NOT equity of last resort.
The opportunities on RealCrowd are from real estate companies that do not need your investment to close on their offerings. Real estate companies use RealCrowd because they want to build a network of online accredited investors and form long term relationships.
RealCrowd is for established real estate companies.

RealCrowd is for commercial real estate investments. We are NOT in the single-family home or house flipping business.

Investor profiles are used to certify the accreditation of the investor and to pre-fill the real estate company’s subscription documents
We partnered with our friends at VerifyInvestor.com to securely automate certification at no cost to investors. Once your investor profile is selected you will be directed to go through the VerifyInvestor.com process.
After your accreditation is certified, the subscription documents will be sent to your inbox for review & signature. Once the documents are executed, they will be made available in your online portfolio.
Once the subscription documents are executed, the real estate company will send the funding instructions directly to you and you will fund directly into their account.
