How does CrowdStreet review Marketplace Deals?

Every deal on the CrowdStreet Marketplace undergoes our objective deal review process

CrowdStreet’s approval of a deal for posting on the Marketplace does not constitute investment advice or an endorsement of the particular deal. Investors are advised to consult with their financial, legal, and tax advisors on each specific offering to determine the suitability of the investment in light of the investor’s circumstances and goals.

What kinds of deals are on the Marketplace?

CrowdStreet's Marketplace offers a variety of deals across the asset class spectrum, from multifamily to self-storage to data centers. Each deal has its own unique opportunities and risks based on the individual business plan.
