Did you know that you can invest in real property development? iFunding affords you that opportunity by allowing you to invest with as little as $5,000. iFunding is a leading crowdfunding platform in US that deals with investments in real estate properties. This entity uses the internet, through its website, to bring together property developers, property owners and other sponsors into the real estate business. One advantage of investing in a crowdfunding institution like iFunding is that the pooling of investment resources together by the different investors allows them to enjoy the mutual benefits of raising and investing money for investment.
iFunding was founded by former investment banker William Skelley. Prior to the establishment of iFunding, William was a high cadre manager at the Rose Park Advisors, a fund established by Harvard Business School professor Dr. Clayton Christensen. He has extensive knowledge and experience in advising start-up companies having worked at Olympus, General Electric and Bain Capital.
According to William Skelley when speaking to MarketWired, real estate crowdfunding has numerous opportunities that investors ought to exploit. In an interview, Skelley said that he came to know of the immensity of these opportunities after he met Dr. Clayton Christen when he had joined his hedge fund. He says that with innovativeness in the real estate business, there is much potential.
What components of real estate does iFunding deal with? iFunding uses preferred equity finance to acquire real properties such as multi and single family residences, condominium estates, apartments, hotel establishments, retail buildings, malls, mixed use buildings amongst others. As noted earlier, the company allows investments as little as $5,000 which allows as many people to invest with them and share the profits of real estate. Once an investor enters into a deal, the company oversees the deal throughout its lifespan and informs the investor of any developments for oversight of their investments.
iFunding is one of the best-rated crowdfunding websites in the US. First, the company invests in knowledge of its investors. William Skelley says that what the company does is mainly educational. The company therefore posts as much information about every opportunity available for consideration. Additionally, by adopting the crowdfunding mode of raising revenue, the company has democratized its investment process thereby attracting more investors. These investors need not have prior experience in real estate as they will be adequately informed. Secondly, the company insists on delivering quality service to the investors. In that case, the company has adopted as a policy to give investors commensurate returns and operate globally. To that end, an office was established in Singapore just recently. Skelley updates the Facebook as iFunding continues to grow and evolve with time.
