A decade ago, crowdfunding platforms sprung up out of what seemed to be thin air following the approval of the JOBS Act, which loosened restrictions barring un-accredited investors from participating in investment funds. The goal of the JOBS Act was to help small businesses raise $1 million, but Bruce Stachenfeld, chairman of RE law firm Duval & Stachenfeld, says that the leading crowdfunding platforms have by far exceeded that goal.

“Crowdfunding has grown up to be a real player in the real estate market,” Stachenfeld tells GlobeSt.com. “Over time, these platforms have aggregated investments from high-net worth individuals, people that could invest $10,000, $25,000 or $100,000 that want to invest in real estate but don’t have access to private equity funds that have a $1 million or $5 million minimum.”
