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.

They boast a fully online platform for making direct investments in real estate, allowing clients to review projects, fund investments and track them via computer, smartphone or iPad.

The electronic investment system claims to make iFunding a paper-free company. That’s right – all forms are digital. Investors will enjoy the convenience of iFunding’s state of the art technology while maintaining the ability to access institutional quality real estate investment opportunities for as little as $1,000.

The platform is geared toward accredited investors in the $1-5m range who lack access to private equity funds and may be frustrated with the volatility of REIT’s. The company focuses on assets that provide long term, stable income streams for their clients.

While truly online investing is reason enough to celebrate, there’s even more to embrace. iFunding has a team of professionals who have over 50 years’ experience in this field. They have worked with some of the largest corporations, such as JP Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and have been involved in over $2 Billion of transactions in numerous different roles. Their expertise and dedication in investing translates into professionalism and knowledge that is second to none.

William Skelley, founder of iFunding, shared in a recent interview that the idea for the company came to him from while working at the hedge fund Rose Park Advisors, a fund run by Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen, that focuses on making investments in companies that fit the framework of disruptive innovation. Mr. Skelley realized that real estate finance was a prime target to be disrupted, harnessing technology to simplify the investment process and make it extremely efficient.

Mr. Skelley had this to say about his company, “Our goal at iFunding is to utilize technology to streamline the process for our real estate investors. We prepackage everything to present the investor with a turnkey investment opportunity – we have in-house counsel, accountants and additional intellectual capital at no cost to the client. We do the legwork so our clients don’t have to. iFunding offers them the efficiency they want with the expertise and results they deserve.”
