Connected Investors, a real estate investors network and marketplace, has launched its aggregated real estate crowdfunding marketplace. For the first time, investors will be able to quickly locate and evaluate investments available across the real estate crowdfunding industry in the U.S. and around the world.
“Connected Investors is bringing awareness to what Patch of Land and what the industry as a whole can offer investors – and they do it in a simple and streamlined way,” said Crowdfunding investment group, Patch of Land’s CEO Jason Fritton.
Launched in 2005, the ConnectedInvestors.com social network provides more than 200,000 real estate investors direct access to off-market investment properties from other investors, property locators, hedge funds, and asset managers. The addition of crowdfunding now allows individuals to quickly research and access the many options and opportunities in the emerging crowdfunding movement.
“Many people are looking for opportunities to build wealth in real estate but the traditional ways create many roadblocks,” said Ross Hamilton, founder and CEO of Connected Investors. “Through crowdfunding, real estate and investing in particular has been transformed. We recognized this fact and developed an effective, simple, and affordable way for anyone to get involved in a real estate investment.”
The Connected Investors crowdfunding marketplace allows the investor to select investment opportunities by the location, rate of return, investment amount, along with other investing parameters.
“Real Estate crowdfunding is exploding before our eyes as evidenced by the growing number of portals that have entered the market. With all of that comes complexity for the investor wanting to find returns. We already had the network, so we simplified the process and in turn, access to the opportunity,” said Marty Coyne, CTO of Connected Investors. “We’ve developed a ‘Kayak-like’ responsive search engine that presents opportunities to the investor without having to deal with dozens of different sites.”
