Crowdfunding is one of the new buzzwords in the financial sector and it is now being successfully applied to real estate investing. Our group will discuss how through crowdfunding investors can pool money together and buy shares of real property - like single-family homes being rehabbed (“flipped”) for profit - and not have to deal with any of the hassles: marketing, negotiating, contractors, permits, inspections, selling the properties, etc. With crowdfunding you no longer need $25,000, $50,000, or $100,000+ to invest in real estate. In fact, you can start investing and getting great returns with as little as $5,000.
Our group has been successfully investing in real estate throughout the Chicago area for the past 10+ years – buying, rehabbing, and reselling 4-5 properties per month on average. All along our primary goal has always been to figure out how to give the everyday investor the same potential returns that the large institutional investment groups get. Crowdfunding finally provides that opportunity.
During our informational discussion we will cover the following:
1) What is crowdfunding?
2) How is it applied to real estate investing?
3) Is it legal?
4) As an investor, what do I actually own?
5) When do I get my money back?
6) What opportunities exist right now?
In addition, we will discuss how you can multiply your returns with crowdfunding.
