OKC-based CrowdSeekr.com is looking to help real estate investors make sense of the growing but fractured $2.5 billion real estate crowdfunding market. Through aggregation of some of the industry’s top sites, such as CrowdStreet, 1031 Crowdfunding, PeerRealty, RealCrowd and HotelInnvestor, CrowdSeekr.com will allow investors to use a range of criteria to identify the investments that meet their specific needs.
From The Oklahoman:
Crowdfunding offers investors the opportunity to invest relatively small amounts — as little as $5,000, according to a search of CrowdSeekr.com on Friday — in potential high-return deals.
[Tim] Strange, who is president of commercial realty firm Newmark Grubb Levy Strange Beffort [and Vice President of Real Estate for CrowdSeekr.com], said some focus needed to be brought to the chaos of the fast-growing investment model.
“What I found out was there is not a good system in place for searching across multiple platforms to find a deal that best suits an investor’s needs. And, if you are a sponsor looking for a platform to market your deal, the same thing is true. I had the latter experience when I was involved in raising equity last year and that’s what led me to conceive of CrowdSeekr,” Strange said.
CrowdSeekr.com previously secured ‘proof of business concept funding’ from i2E, an Oklahoma nonprofit that provides support to startups.
