ENDVEST Offers Real Estate Equity Crowdfunding Investors Returns Ranging from 10% to Over 20% from Investments Starting as Low as $5,000

Now, non-accredited investors will profit alongside experienced financial institutions, family offices, hedge funds, and accredited investment partners

New York, New York  – ENDVEST launched a real estate investment and equity crowdfunding platform with a New York-based team that brings a combined eight decades of real estate experience to the site and aims to revolutionize the process of global real estate investment.

Investing via top U.S. real estate equity crowdfunding platforms has exploded since the passage of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act in 2012. Until now, these opportunities have been available exclusively to accredited investors. To be accredited, an individual must prove individual income of over $200,000, joint spousal income of over $300,000, or a net worth exceeding $1 million, excluding a primary residence. However, Title IV of the JOBS Act has paved the way for investments from non-accredited investors as well, who may invest up to 10% of their annual income or net worth.

Many say real estate crowdfunding or real estate syndication is the evolutionary step for real estate financing, which has historically lagged in embracing disruption through technology, P2P services, and online software. Unlike many existing real estate crowdfunding platforms that have branded themselves as investment vehicles for the accredited investor, ENDVEST targets a wider scope. Now, non-accredited investors will profit alongside experienced financial institutions, family offices, hedge funds, and accredited investment partners.

Real estate crowdfunding benefits both sides of the table. Investors are attracted to the custom, direct investment process, while developers can finance projects generally overlooked by institutions because of project scale and location. By pairing developers with investors looking to make a greater return than a REIT’s typical 4% yield, ENDVEST offers investment partners returns ranging from 10% to over 20%. Investors can become partners in real estate projects around the world for as little as $5,000 on ENDVEST’s website, with live investments totaling $15.5 million. ENDVEST also claims that deals will be available for as little as $500 in the coming months.

ENDVEST sources their deals through a vast real estate professional network, sponsor partners, and inquiries passed through its website. Through a sophisticated underwriting process, projects are vetted and accepted based on merit. CEO Jack Boyajian explains the company’s transparency is demonstrated by its willingness to share every detail regarding the project to anyone. Whereas most platforms require a form of accreditation before viewing a project’s sensitive details, ENDVEST allows any registered user to access development plans, financials, and other relevant information.

Liquidity risk is a major factor in any real estate investing decision. While REITs allow investors to buy and sell at their discretion, more attractive investment opportunities typically require as much as a five-year holding period, with little to no liquidity. Unlike any other real estate crowdfunding investment platform to date, ENDVEST will soon launch ENDVEST EXCHANGE, its own integrated secondary market. The END/EX platform will allow users to place bids on past projects and match investors in those projects willing to sell.

Observing the success of real estate crowdfunding platforms, which offer online real estate investment, dozens of entrepreneurs have launched mirrored platforms with admittedly uninspiring projects. ENDVEST hopes to distinguish itself through unique, high yielding investments in cities around the world.

Chicago, ILPeerRealty.com announced the introduction of a secondary market crowdfunding stock exchange called the CFX: Crowd Finance Exchange for crowdfunded assets and other private investment offerings. The mechanics of the secondary market stock exchange are simple. Shares of crowdfunding offerings purchased on the PeerRealty portal can be resold on the secondary market, subject only to SEC resale restrictions.

The secondary market acts as a stock exchange for private investments, allowing investors to buy and sell shares from other participants in the market. The secondary market, branded as “CFX: the Crowd Finance Exchange,” is expected to be online within 60-90 days pending the completion of SEC regulatory procedures.

“PeerRealty is all about providing access, transparency and flexibility, and our secondary market will provide investors with sorely needed liquidity for private placements and crowdfunding offerings,” says PeerRealty COO Juan Hernandez. “Creating a secondary market has been one of our primary goals since we founded PeerRealty last year, and we’re thrilled to announce the arrival of this private exchange to the marketplace.”

PeerRealty has finalized the back-end technology supporting the exchange, and has a patent pending on the technology and process. CFX acts as a centralized asset exchange system, managing the registration of listed assets and the ownership of participating investors.

The internal transaction engine manages incoming orders to buy and sell, and processes these orders using a matching algorithm with price-time priority. The CFX system handles the complete lifecycle of an investment purchase or transfer, including the clearing of investor funds and settlement process of the private assets.

The establishment of a secondary market promises to be a huge development for a quickly growing industry. According to a recent report by research organization Massolution, the equity crowdfunding industry grew by 182% in 2014, with over $1.1 billion raised on equity crowdfunding platforms.

PeerRealty.com is a streamlined, online portal that allows any accredited investor to participate in high-quality real estate deals. A strong team and advisers with institutional backgrounds review and select deals. The leadership team has over 30 years of real estate investing experience, and includes M.B.A.’s from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, and the University of Miami (FL), along with J.D.’s from the University of Chicago Law School and the University of Miami (FL).

Current investment opportunities available on the PeerRealty platform include a senior housing development project and a retail shopping center in the Chicagoland area.
