Why is crowdfunding gaining such popularity? What are the benefits of crowdfunding?

by Jamie 05/22/2019

Popularity in crowdfunding has evolved on the internet with new rules and regulations the market has grown exponentially.  From 2009 to 2015 growing from a 530 Million globally, to 170 Billion reported Nov 2019.

Although Debt crowdfunding is most common, you can see if the graph that equity crowdfunding (purple) is gaining popularity as more investors seek to diversify their investments into real estate. In 2015 there were over 1.1 Billion in equity based crowdfunding.

Real estate crowdfunding has recently become an option in 2015. With the first changes to the securities and exchange act in 80 years, now allowing exemption to unaccredited investors.

The Securities & Exchange Act written in 1933 stated any offer to sell securities must either be registered with Securities & Exchange Commission or meet an exemption.  In short these rules favor the rich. Only 8-10% of population qualify and out of reach to capital investment!

That has all changed with the 2012 J.O.B.S, Jumpstart Our Business Startups. Most significant deregulation in the Securities & Exchange laws  in nearly 80 years!

Specifically, the exemptions used for real estate crowdfunding are the J.O.B.S. Act Title I, II, III and  IV (Reg A+)

This is a bit complex and if you want to learn more about the securities exchange regulations, we would recommend contacting a professional.
