Despite the low minimum initial deposit requirement, PeerStreet is not an investment platform that will work for most investors, and certainly not small investors. PeerStreet will appeal to certain high asset, high-risk investors, but it is not a platform for the average investor.
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.
