The Real Estate Crowdfunding phenomena remains in the very early stages of its full potential. New legislation, improved online technology, and more sophisticated service providers continue to make the online investment process smoother. Each day investors across the world are realizing the advantages of these investment offerings. Simultaneously, property owners are recognizing how to effectively access and deploy crowdfunded capital.
The total estimated valuation of US commercial real estate is more than $15 trillion, with US commercial real estate investment sales totaling $487 Billion in 2016. Current estimates of the crowdfunded universe are in the hundreds of millions annually. Assuming aggregate commercial real estate crowdfunding more than doubles to $5 billion of investments in the coming years, this represents merely 0.033% of the total value of US commercial assets.
