NEW YORK, October 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
RealtyFolio, the online real estate investing platform has updated its interface, including a redesign, rebrand, and upgraded features. The upgrade was meant to "make it even more comfortable for clients to navigate the platform and for clients to be able to invest in real estate projects, quickly and easily," according to the company's CEO, Jonathan Klein. He went on to say that they "expect a very big year in 2019, with many projects in the works, and a lot of demand from clients."
RealtyFolio is ushering in the future of real estate investing by allowing you to build a real estate portfolio online. With over 30 years of real estate investing and management experience on its team and a vast network of strategic partners across the United States, in cities such as New York, Miami and Los Angeles, RealtyFolio gives everyone a chance to swim with the sharks.
By investing in real estate using Realtyfolio's easy-to-use platform, you can enjoy the stability of real estate investing, without any of the time and work traditionally involved with it. Realtyfolio ensures that every aspect of the investment process is taken care of by industry professionals, no more wasting time finding a property, renovating, and maintaining a property all on your own. No more dealing with brokers, lawyers, contractors, and tenants. Realtyfolio cuts all of that out, so you just have to click a button, invest, and relax. You then simply track your investments on your online portfolio.
Realtyfolio only works with experienced high-end developers with a strong track record. They typically offer exclusive deals in the $5 Million - $50 Million range with high returns, that most investors would not have access to anywhere else. They provide all of their clients with an account manager to guide them every step of the way and assist them in building their portfolio. Clients will always have someone to talk to for updates about their investments. Their easy to use platform gives our clients the virtual experience of building an online real estate portfolio, without any of the work.
Klein was inspired by his own experiences as an investor when building RealtyFolio.
"As a long time investor myself, I always wondered why investing in real estate wasn't as easy as investing in stocks. With stocks, I log into my account, click a button, and I am an owner of a fortune 500 company. But with traditional real estate investing, I have to go out, find a property, deal with all the legal work, the renovations, the tenants - it's a pain. That's where the idea for RealtyFolio came from. I thought to myself, investing in real estate should also be as simple as a clicking a button. So we went out and built a platform that makes it easier for everyone to be able to do just that.
Aside from the ease, it was also very important that clients get the returns and stability that they want. Plus, since most clients are busy with their lives, they need the guidance and support to make the process of investing more comfortable to them. So we went out and built a great customer success team, so that each client has his own agent that helps him or her. The business is really divided into to sides, the real estate side, constantly looking for the best opportunities, and the client side, always making sure every client is taken care of."
Regulatory and technological advances have given rise to the real estate crowdfunding industry. The JOBS act signed in 2012, has eased regulations around unaccredited investors. In the past, only accredited investors were able to take advantage of many investment opportunities, such as private placements.
Times are indeed changing, with the power of crowdfunding allowing unaccredited investors to invest small amounts of capital into traditionally excusive investments, from private tech startups to real estate. With the doors now open, smaller investors can finally enjoy the same opportunities as larger institutional and ultrawealthy investors, further leveling the playing field.
80% of the crowdfunding opportunities in the marketplace are designed as equity investments. Clients then make their money when there is a liquidity event, such as a sale or a refinance, and from rent payments, just as in traditional real estate investing. Typically there is an LLC that holds the property, that you have shares in, that will then provide you with your profits based on the amount that you invested.
The industry is expected to grow to $300 Billion by 2025. Expect RealtyFolio to be an industry leader.
