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.
RealCrowd is a commercial real estate crowdfunding platform. Although there are limitations on who may invest and there is some inflexibility that would make the service unappealing to some real estate investors, RealCrowd offers a wide selection of deals chosen with strict standards.
