Yesterday real estate crowdfund investing platform RealCrowd pitched to investors at Y Combinator’s demo day. This marks the culmination of RealCrowd’s experience as part of the famed Y Combinator accelerator program. Wired magazine calls Y Combinator “the most prestigious program for budding digital entrepreneurs.”
The niche makes sense. Real estate is a less risky form of investment when compared to startups, and the tangible assets that back many of these investments mean diminished risk when compared to early-stage startups, which are notoriously risky investments. It seems many in the industry think real estate stands to be a big part of the larger narrative.
RealCrowd is built on the Founders’ collective $3 billion of institutional quality underwriting and transaction experience. Over 20 years, the principals have reviewed, marketed, bought and sold real estate assets across the country. With deep industry experience in working with the nation’s best real estate operators, we have relationships to bring consistent and attractive deal flow.
RealCrowd doesn’t only facilitate initial deals. The platform provides a dashboard where investors can track their investments, payouts and returns over the long term.
