Closing the gap between the real estate investor and borrower through crowdfunding is what makes Groundfloor innovative.
Groundfloor is unusual in that its mission opens real estate investing to the general population…. The investment is secured by the real property, and there’s an aggressive pre-screening process for developers.
Groundfloor fills a void for real estate entrepreneurs...They provide short-term, high-yield returns backed by real estate to entrepreneurs who are often ignored by traditional lenders…
Groundfloor’s investors are regular Americans who partner with developers on 20 to 30 real estate projects over a six month period...They earn between a 5 percent and 16 percent return on their investment within six to 12 months…. Investors run the gamut from retirees to professionals who want to invest in real estate part time.
Groundfloor made the higher returns of real estate investing available to regular people who previously did not have access.
I applaud Groundfloor in really building a business from the ground up where they're focused on the non-accredited investor.
I decided to invest in GROUNDFLOOR because it gives me the ability to invest & make money in the rebounding housing market, without the large-scale capital requirements, time requirement, and managerial overhead of being a direct real estate investor and developer. GROUNDFLOOR allows you to take part with a relatively low cost of entry. Further, I like being able to understand how the funds will be spent, and who will be spending them…. The return is attractive, and the investment terms are short enough to where you don’t have to be without the liquidity for too long.
GROUNDFLOOR makes investing in real estate a simple process. With a minimum investment size of $10 per project, it is easy for me to diversify my capital investment, while being able to quickly filter through project options to find what best fits my strategy. The process of investing through GROUNDFLOOR has been very smooth, and I look forward to enjoying continued investments and returns in the future. I would definitely recommend the GROUNDFLOOR platforms to anyone looking to invest in real estate assets or make a superior return on their capital.
I like having the ability to invest in real estate without having to make either a massive commitment to a single property or trust a vague portfolio of properties selected by someone else.

GROUNDFLOOR loans are secured by the underlying real estate asset, and the company holds a senior lien on the majority of properties.

Opening this kind of real estate investment to the masses is a groundbreaking achievement.
