Real Estate Crowdfunding: Latest Trends and Developments
In the year 2015, according to a research and advisory firm, crowdfunding platforms in real estate investment have generated about $34.4 billion and is conservatively expected to greatly increase this year.

The recent approval of the JOBS Act's Title III rules is expected to generate new activity for real estate crowdfunding.
