Featured Reviews

American Homeowner Preservation Review

Invest in distressed mortgages
Rated 4 stars

AHP buys pools of distressed mortgage loans at a discount, and then works with homeowners to modify or refinance the loan. If they aren't able to do either, AHP forecloses on the home and resells it through the REO process. Investors receive a 12% preferred return (and all of their principal back) before AHP earns any profits, but investors should be sure to understand this is an equity investment, not a debt investment, much less a secured one.

InstaLend Review

10-14% returns on short-term residential real-estate debt investments
Rated 3.5 stars

InstaLend is a relative newcomer to investment crowdfunding real estate, though founder Sohin Shah previously co-founded iFunding, and has clearly brought lessons learned along the way to InstaLend. Investors fund loans for 1-4 family residential real estate projects, earning monthly interest payments and a return of principal when the loan matures. Returns are advertised as 10-14%. Investment selection is limited, but some novel approaches to deal structure and loan enforcement earn InstaLend a closer look among real estate debt platforms.

EquityMultiple Review

Commercial Real Estate portal, funded by Mission Capital
Rated 4 stars

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.
