    Crowdfunded real estate: Tips for small investors

    David Manshoory of AssetAvenue shared some real estate crowdfunding tips with the LA times.

    The biggest take away was that like with most crowdfunding projects, you need to do your homework, particularly on the investment side.

    "The key to successfully investing in real estate is performing a thorough due-diligence analysis," says David Manshoory, founder of AssetAvenue. Novices often "get excited about acquiring part of an investment property and lose sight of the mechanics of knowing what they are buying."
    It's important to verify the financials and have a clear view of the types of tenants exist on the property, along with understanding the condition of the property.

    While it seems like a no-brainer, investors can sometimes get excited and forget to make simple checks like whether or not the property or owners have had any legal issues in the past.

    Finally, it's crucial that investors take the time to research underlying trends with regards to local income, population growth, and employment.

    Real estate can be an extremely profitable investment. But most of these investments are limited to investors who have the energy, capital and time to manage them. Thank you for the useful tips.

    I think that is the beauty of real estate crowdfunding. It is essentially RE private equity without all the headaches that come along with it - you share in the profits of multi-million dollar deals without having to deal with all the development and fundraising.

    I think that the lack of due-diligence analysis is not only a problem in real estate crowdfunding, but also in euqity crowdfunding. Usually, the ideas of the founders sound like the next big thing. But after analysing the market and products, most of the expectations seem unrealistic. The majority of equity crowdfunding platforms let start-ups decide themselves how high they set their valuation - often based on overdrawn promises. Therefore, inexperienced investors frequently invest in overvaluated projects, what consequently downsizes their rate of return.

    Before making any investment in the Real Estate sector one should have perfect knowledge about the company in which they are investing. It is also very necessary to have proper knowledge that property should not have any legal issues and the company in which investment is being made, where it stands, are they capable to return money back alongwith the interest.
