EquityMultiple stands out among real estate crowdfunding investment platforms because they’re primarily funded by a major commercial real estate investment firm (Mission Capital) rather than VCs. They offer fewer investments than some other platforms, but that’s a deliberate choice, both to ensure sufficient due diligence, and to keep the choices simple for their primary customer base, which remains small retail investors.

stREITwise is the latest real estate investment crowdfunding platform to offer a public non-listed REIT investment using Reg A+, joining similar offerings from Rich Uncles, Realty Mogul, and Fundrise. Current selection is limited, but growing, with the recent addition of a large mixed-use complex near Indianapolis. The fee structure is attractive, with the exception of the early-redemption fees, which are higher than similar Reg A+ REITs.
