Using Real Estate Crowdfunding to Build Better Neighborhood Projects
Eve Picker, Small Change
Cities are in demand. Yet an uneven approach to financing neighborhood development persists. Banks and federal financing programs through FHA and HUD often look askew at projects they don't understand, and neighborhoods are often cutoff from the financing mechanisms needed to create impactful projects. Real estate crowdfunding is changing this dynamic, providing accessible investment tools for people to directly participate by investing in meaningful real estate developments. This panel provides an overview of the current real estate crowdfunding regulations, and highlights how one platform, Small Change, and a developer using its service, are bringing neighborhood projects to life.
