This podcast makes some bold predictions on the future of real estate syndication. 

As the nation broils under a heat wave currently affecting more than 235 million people, we’ve got all of the hot news that’s come out over the past week or so in the real estate crowdfunding space. On the agenda for today are two new offerings, a 99%-Occ Multifamily in One of the Nation’s Fastest-Growing Cities offered up on CrowdStreet, and a look at the live Q&A for the Tides on Oakland Hills Apartments at RealtyMogul

We will also examine the boom in build-to-rent communities with an insightful piece penned by Dalton Brewster over at Benzinga, real estate platform Kiavi’s recent expansion into multiple new states, and finish off with an overview of a new podcast from How to Scale Commercial Real Estate that reviews “The Future of Real Estate Syndication,” an area of study you’ll undoubtedly want to keep up on, whether you’re a greenhorn real estate syndication investor or a seasoned vet. 

Let’s get into it.

General Crowdfunding Industry News

The markets are volatile right now. The War in Ukraine, ongoing COVID-19 issues, and inflationary pressures are causing big losses across sectors, from tech stocks to crypto. As investors continue to flee toward the relative safety of real estate. In this context, we’re seeing an immense boom in build-to-rent homes, which are purpose-built to hold tenants rather than be sold directly to single-family-home buyers, hence, the name “build-to-rent.” 

Firms like Blackstone Capital and REITs like American Homes 4 Rent are rapidly expanding in the sector, presenting new opportunities for syndicated real estate investors. Learn more about this sea-change in how we build, buy, sell, and rent single-family homes here, on Benzinga.

Crowdfunding Platform Updates

In what some might view as a mirror of national growth in real estate crowdfunding, Kiavi, formerly known as LendingHome, is expanding its business into three new states. The firm has been around for about a decade, and in that time has funded close to $11 billion in loans, and completed more than 46,000 individual real estate projects. 

In their latest move, they’re expanding their presence to Alabama, Arkansas, and Wisconsin, in part they claim, due to their mission to create more affordable housing in a time of an unprecedented housing crisis- the likes of which we haven’t seen in the modern era. Check out Kiavi’s expansion plans and rationale on Crowdfund Insider, here.

Finally, we’re going to bring you a real estate crowdfunding-related podcast to listen to in the car, at the gym, or if you’re feeling brave, at your desk at work. Sam Wilson’s podcast, How to Scale Commercial Real Estate, regularly covers matters related to real estate syndication, multifamily investments, and the real estate sector as a whole. 

Last week, he spoke with Jake Marmulstein, an Atlanta-area entrepreneur and business executive that’s worked across numerous sectors, including digital marketing, ERP to SaaS, digital marketing, education tech, and more. Get his take on what the future of real estate syndication will look like, here.

That’s all folks! We’ll see you next week with lots more RE CF news stories, new deals, podcasts videos, and more. See you then!
