Crowdfunding could bring more transparency to real estate investing | Inman News | Startups change the world | Scoop.it

Real estate crowdfunding has opened up property investment to a larger pool of investors, enabling individuals to buy stakes in rental properties and share in the revenue that those properties generate without having to help manage the properties.
At least two of these services are also eyeing the possibility of enabling investors to buy stakes in owner-occupied homes. In those cases, investors would share in the appreciation or depreciation of home values.
Now, one crowdfunder, Realty Mogul, says that it has demonstrated another benefit that its burgeoning business offers: increased transparency.
Because the company oversees the flow of money involved in deals that it arranges, the startup was able to gauge the range of fees and returns associated with investments in “real estate syndication” deals — deals that involve pooling capital to purchase property, the specialty of crowdfunders.
According to Realty Mogul CEO Jilliene Helman, her company’s analysis exposes a “massive, highly fragmented market that’s completely non-standard,” showing great variability in both the net returns that investors are earning on syndication deals, as well as the fees that they are paying real estate investments firms to oversee the deals.
Helman said that data like the range of property management fees charged by firms that manage real estate syndication deals has traditionally been hard to dig up. That’s because companies typically can’t directly access the transaction data of a multitude of real estate investment companies, she said.
