How does real estate crowdfunding work?

CRE crowdfunding allows multiple investors to pool their money and collectively invest in larger real estate projects than they could on their own.

As an investor in a crowdfunding deal, you, along with dozens or even hundreds of other investors, purchase a portion of interest in a property or real estate project, similar to owning shares in a company. Capital that is raised goes to the real estate developer to invest in building, renovating or recapitalizing the property, which generates ROI for each investor.
