Hear from our investors
Great education on commercial real estate and informative webinars. I have been investing on the platform for over four years. There seems to be a good amount of deal flow with great variety. I especially like the funds that are offered by CrowdStreet. Great way to passively invest in the commercial real estate world.
The CrowdStreet platform gives me the vehicle to diversify my personal portfolio into non-equity/
non-bond options and gives the individual investor access to participate in CRE transactions that were virtually unavailable to us in the past...There are so many quality investments that become available to review, it's getting harder to choose which ones to invest in. Nice problem to have!!
I have been investing in CRE through CrowdSteet for 2 years, in over a dozen offerings. Never had a problem. They are the best. I have also invested through other online CRE brokers, but no one comes close to the deal quality of CrowdStreet. Highly recommended.
Learn about the Marketplace
How does CrowdStreet review Marketplace Deals?
CrowdStreet's deal review process looks for best-in-class sponsors with institutional-quality deals. Out of every 100 deals, approximately five make it to the Marketplace.
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.
