EquityMultiple is a platform designed to help accredited investors take advantage of commercial real estate deals. Each institutional-quality deal is thoroughly vetted and presented in a transparent, thorough manner. The company's individual equity programs also offer unlimited upside, and customer service is sterling. However, EquityMultiple is available only for accredited investors, and some might find the minimum investment steep in comparison with other crowdfunding platforms out there.
RealtyShares is an online investment platform that specializes in real estate investments. It focuses on smaller business investments, including single-family house flips. RealtyShares has a large amount of investment type options, though the investments are illiquid.
