Futurism: Investing Platform Could Change Real Estate Forever
The best example of this is peer-to-peer investing, which is basically crowdfunding loans. In the past, only large financial institutions had the resources to offer real estate loans. That meant only large financial institutions had access to highly profitable investments in real estate debt.
But that’s no longer the case thanks to crowdfunding technology. Today, peer-to-peer platforms can connect borrowers with thousands of private lenders, creating an entirely new asset class. And right now the hottest name in peer to peer lending is PeerStreet.
