Houston, Texas –RealtyWealth.com announced the launch of the first commercial real estate Crowdfunding platform dedicated to Single Tenant Net Lease “STNL” investments. Targeting accredited investors in the US and global investors in South Africa, China, and Canada, RealtyWealth.com provides the opportunity to invest in institutional quality, corporate backed lease properties from credit rated tenants such as McDonald’s, Walgreens, Starbucks and Walmart.

RealtyWealth is also the first portal to offer passive realty investments to foreign investors seeking the stability and yields of US Real Estate Assets. Chinese investors have been particularly active, with investments in US commercial properties jumping 10-fold from 2012 and expected to reach $10 billion in 2014 according to Real Analytics.

The last six months have seen significant development within the real estate Crowdfunding market and RealtyWealth.com is poised to take advantage of this heightened interest from investors, developers and intermediaries. Over $700M has been raised by Real Estate Tech Startups since 2012 with peer sites Fundrise and RealtyMogul boasting $100M+ post Series A valuations.

Taking advantage of this foreign investor wave, RealtyWealth have built key marketing relationships with international consumer sites like Juwai.com- the largest outbound Chinese investment portal for US properties– and have distribution partners arranged or under discussion in South Africa, Latin America and Canada.

RealtyWealth.com operates as an aggregator of local and foreign investors seeking stable US-based Real Estate Investments,” said Sam Vogel, co-founder. “STNL products offer long-term, corporate-backed, passive income with an inflation and currency hedge to our investors.”

STNL Investments offer passive investments consisting of long-term leases, guaranteed by the Corporate Tenant.  Tenants are responsible for ALL incidentals including taxes, insurance and maintenance – normally the landlords’ responsibility. Many leases have rental bumps to keep pace with inflation and investors can depreciate the property against tax. In the unlikely event that the tenant defaults, the investor still owns the underlying property.

Whereas UHNW, Family Offices, Hedge Funds and REITS have invested in STNL investments for decades, less than 10% of the 8.7 million Accredited investors in the USA are aware of these investments.

“NNN Investments are essentially corporate bond-type investments in real estate wrappers,” said Bryan Smith, co-founder and CEO.”Compare investing in Starbucks stock at 1.6% dividend versus acquiring a corporate backed Starbucks lease achieving returns of 6% to 7% unlevered?”

RealtyWealth’s  proprietary, state-of-the-art platform and dashboard allows investors to review properties, make investments, track portfolios and receive statements, earnings and tax computations all online.

RealtyWealth are working closely with developers, brokers and intermediaries in the CRE market to introduce STNL investments in the US and abroad.

From only $5,000 a month, investors can invest in these appealing properties and enjoy the opportunity to build value over the long term.

By Robert Hoskins

Fair Oaks, CaliforniaNXGen Capital.com launched a new real estate equity crowdfunding site that provides accredited investors access to pre-vetted commercial investment properties across the western United States. The website debuts with a robust portfolio of available commercial projects, ranging in scope from exclusive hotels, luxury condos and office space to assisted living and memory care facilities. For example, a recent assisted living and memory care facility in Citrus Heights, Calif. has already raised over $1.1 million of its initial $2.1 million equity goal.

Each project on the site has been thoroughly investigated prior to being offered to the public. This information is openly shared on the website in the form of general property statistics, financial summaries, financial overviews and market summaries—so investors can quickly assess a project’s potential.

Additionally, investors are able to quickly and easily conduct their own due diligence across multiple projects at a time, since all projects fall under themed commercial categories. The entire crowdfunding process can be completed online and easily tracked through the customer login feature.

“In the last year or so, real estate crowdfunding has made earning power available to the public at large,” said Brian Clark, co-founder and managing director of NXGen Capital. “But we see NXGen Capital as the next generation of real estate crowdfunding. We want to bring greater transparency to the real estate crowdfunding platform and put all investors on a level playing field. Potential investors no longer need to be ‘in-the-know’ in order to diversify their portfolio.”

Due to its close relationships with developers and other industry professionals, NXGen plans to offer investors a robust pipeline of high-quality, high yield investment properties on a consistent basis. Clark added, “Investors will always have a wide range of real estate deals to choose from at any given time.”

With so much volatility in the stock market, investors are flocking to invest in tangible assets. Investors far and wide have already been attracted to the returns that NXGen Capital offers through developers, promoters and directors supplying high-quality real estate investment opportunities. While other real estate crowdfunding platforms typically offer 10-18% returns, the lowest annual return currently offered on the NXGen portal is 25% and some projects reach 40% or more.

“Our complete portal solution provides a community-focused business professional or organization everything they need to launch a compliant crowdfunding portal,” said Joseph Barisonzi, CEO of CommunityLeader, Inc. “As of today, no longer should cash flow be the barrier to building a crowdfunding portal.”

“Launching a crowdfunding portal is much more than an investor-facing website,” stated Jennifer Amys, CommunityLeader’s CIO. “It is about having the systems in place to effectively solicit and promote a qualified investment opportunity to a qualified investor, manage the settlement and fulfillment process, and then provide transparent ongoing support. A CommunityLeader crowdfunding portal has the power to manage all of the required and necessary steps.”

CommunityLeader’s financing option provides qualified portal partners the opportunity to minimize their upfront financial outlay so they maximize the resources they have for recruiting quality businesses and educating investors. CommunityLeader is offering three financing packages designed for individuals and organizations seeking to launch an integrated community-based crowdfunding portal.

“Everyone who wants to launch a portal has to consider whether to build their own system or to partner with an experienced platform provider,” said Scott Bachman, CommunityLeader’s CMO. “The CommunityLeader Portal Platform solution makes this an easy choice. For probably less than 20% of the cost of building out a proprietary solution, we can deliver a personalized portal with everything needed to solicit and sell securities in today’s regulatory environment.”

CommunityLeader is seeking portal operators who have deep connections in their chosen community. Communities may be geographic, industry, affinity or business model; and will evaluate qualified operators on depth of their business plan and their personal and professional attributes. With as little as 15% down, CommunityLeader’s financing packages cover the upfront license fee, configuration, custom development and training.
