Real Estate Crowdfunding 101

Crowdfunding is another way to raise money for business ventures, pet projects, charitable causes and just about anything else. Opportunities are posted on crowdfunding websites which provides access to a much broader pool of potential investors than ever before. This method of raising capital is becoming a steadily increasing force in the real estate market as well.

The Basics

Real estate crowdfunding became more broadly available to investors in 2012. That year, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS) was passed. It relaxed the eligibility requirements for individuals who want to invest in crowdfunding realty; a net worth of $1 million is one of the criteria. Conventional real estate investing often required a commitment of hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars. The average investment size for crowdfunding real estate projects is several thousand dollars.

Landlords and developers are also benefiting because it gives them another potential source of capital besides banks and more traditional financing options, which typically have more stringent requirements. According to a June 2014 Wall Street Journal article, a number of real estate crowdfunding websites had collectively raised $135 million in equity and debt for a wide variety of owners and developers.


One of the big benefits of real estate crowd funding is the diversification it provides on many fronts.

  • Geographic

 Some real estate markets are booming and others are depressed. Through crowdfunding, investors have no geographic limitations and can pick and choose the part of the country in which they want to invest.

7 Valuable Mods for Your UTV

While your side-by-side is a beautiful thing on its own, you can also dramatically increase both its utility and its market value by adding the right modifications. Here are just seven useful ways to customize your UTV.

1. Heaters

Heaters are more than just a luxury. If you're hauling cargo or breaking bricks in snowy territory, your UTV heater can genuinely save your life. Don't skimp when it comes to buying the best and staying warm.

2. Custom Seats

Who likes riding in an ill-fitting seat? Splurge for custom seats that will accommodate your weight, height and any back or spinal problems that you may have. Even if you don't suffer from such conditions, custom seats can turn an average ride into a remarkable one.

3. Harnesses

Increasing the safety of your UTV will also increase its value. Look for harnesses that follow a five-point system and have straps of at least two inches. You might also decide to spend a little extra on "quick adjusting" harnesses that will allow you to rearrange them without all the usual fuss.

4. Windshield

Your UTV windshield serves a variety of purposes. For one, it protects you from the elements; no one will enjoy a ride through sand dunes without a windshield. It can also increase your visibility on the road if you upgrade from something grimy to something grand.

Mom Craves for New Pair of Sandals

Spring is here and time to reveal those beautiful sandals and spring outfits. I have a long list of Spring stuffs to buy once money would pour from the sky. But wait, when do you think would that be? Lately, I have started my window shopping for spring footwear from several regular footwear stores closeby. And great finds flooded into my eyes. Awesome!

I am a big fan of those styles that have a couple of inches addition to height as obviously I am not gifted with my ideal height. Ladies, below sandal is one of my favorites from my latest finds. What do you think?
