NOTE: iFunding is no longer active. iFunding was among the first real estate investment crowdfunding sites, but has experienced a range of operational and legal issue that have left it struggling (and by some accounts, currently insolvent). Until and unless conditions improve, you may want to look elsewhere for real estate investment crowdfunding options.

iFunding is a Reg D real estate investment platform, but according to published reports, has not originated any new loans since 2016. A raft of operational and legal challenges have left many investors frustrated, and with a rather uncertain future, prospective investors may want to look elsewhere.
EquityMultiple stands out among real estate crowdfunding investment platforms because their main investors and senior leadership come from institutional real estate finance, rather than being VC-funded. Seed funding for the company was provided by Mission Capital (later acquired by Marcus & Millichap) and their co-founders and board of advisors come from the New York real estate finance and law community. They offer fewer investments than some other platforms, but that’s a deliberate choice to take a more curatorial approach to dealflow.
Overall, EquityMultiple is a solid choice for accredited investors looking for a hands-off way to invest in commercial real estate.
