'It was a nightmare working with banks,' Costanzo said. 'It was bureaucratic and tedious.' Costanzo then reached out to Groundfloor…. Groundfloor allows developers, homebuilders and remodelers like Costanzo to crowdfund money from online investors across the U.S. — similar to how startups raise funds on Kickstarter to manufacture new products. Within a couple of weeks, Costanzo, a former wealth manager, raised $100,000 from 130 investors through Groundfloor….'They just make it happen,' Costanzo said. “It seems more efficient and faster than a bank.

With Groundfloor, I saw that the cost of capital could be substantially less than a hard money loan. And that was significant. Groundfloor's team gets what the borrower needs.

Sherry Bailey

Borrower
Groundfloor was super easy to work with. The follow-up is so great. They are always there, and always on it.

"My first GROUNDFLOOR project, which had 100% equity, was denied funding from a bank and a credit union since I owned the property for less than 6 months; I couldn’t even get a home equity line with my 740+ credit score! Thankfully Groundfloor arrived. The project funded relatively swiftly and the loan underwriting was timely and much smoother than what I’ve experienced at large banks. Loan servicing and post-closing support were also responsive and they were prompt to make payments on any construction draws."
