Crowdfunding is a process for raising money for businesses and real estate deals, among other entities. Crowdfunding uses the Internet and social media outlets, such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, to reach a larger base of possible investors.

Crowdfunding allows accredited investors in real estate to access institutional-quality ventures and raise capital from a ‘crowd’ of investors, who previously could not afford to be a part of such esteemed projects. Moreover, like equity crowdfunding, the JOBS Act of 2012 allows these investors to be stakeholders in these projects by investing a minimal amount and gain returns from any profits that the investment generates in the form of rents or sale proceeds.
