5 Reasons to Attract Hard Money Lenders into Crowdfunding

5 Reasons to Attract Hard Money Lenders into Crowdfunding | The JOBS Act and Crowd Funding | Scoop.it


The crowdfunding industry will continue to experience exponential growth in 2016. The entry of 400 of hard money lenders in the crowdfunding space will add into this growth. Hard money lenders are small groups of investors or private individuals who lend money to house flippers or real estate developers based on the property they are buying and not their credit score. Such loans can cost up to twice the average mortgage and feature high origination fees. Despite this high cost of borrowing, real estate entrepreneurs can access up to 100 percent of property purchase price from hard money lenders to finance their deals as long as they can back their loans up with real assets.

Global ​Crowdfunding Update: Will the Pan-European Law Overtake the US JOBS Act

Global ​Crowdfunding Update: Will the Pan-European Law Overtake the US JOBS Act | The JOBS Act and Crowd Funding | Scoop.it
TheSohoLoftEvents's insight:

In an exclusive report, Reuters says EU will come out with a document next week that will implement a #pan-european #crowdfunding law. And yet the US JOBS Act for equity crowdfunding is nearing it’s second year and won’t become a practical law earlier than 1000 days after it was signed into a law April 5, 2012 by President Obama.
The proposal to be released according to Reuters next week shows activity.

How To Go Public Without Middlemen: Top 2 Options | The JOBS Act and Crowd Funding | Scoop.it
Direct Public Offerings (DPO) come in various formats that entrepreneurs can utilize to go public without broker dealers or costly compliance costs. It is worth it for entrepreneurs to learn about which are the two most common direct public offerings, as Ben & Jerry’s was one of these success stories. As opposed to Initial Public Offering, the DPO removes middlemen and allows issuers to sell stock directly to investors that may not be accredited investors.

Will a Pre-funded Deals Strategy Cause a Shift in Real Estate Crowdfunding?

Will a Pre-funded Deals Strategy Cause a Shift in Real Estate Crowdfunding? | The JOBS Act and Crowd Funding | Scoop.it
Real estate crowdfunding platforms are increasingly shifting towards pre-funded deals to increase their market share and deal flow.
TheSohoLoftEvents's insight:
Real estate crowdfunding platforms are increasingly shifting towards pre-funded deals to increase their market share and deal flow. Pre-funded deals occur when a crowdfunding platform gives a real estate developer who needs capital right way a loan guarantee without having to first take the risk of raising the entire loan amount from online investors. According to the 2015 TRN Real Estate Crowdfunding Report, crowdfunding platforms are opting for this strategy to meet the needs of developers who need to raise capital quickly in order to close lucrative deals in a short amount of time. In such situations, pre-funded deals come in handy because raising funds online can take longer – usually a few weeks or even months. While pre-funded deals enable real estate developers fast funding, it also benefits investors who get returns faster because deals with developers are closed prior to the commencement of the fundraising process online.
