Data and Technology – Drivers to Successful Real Estate Investing

Step aside retail investors, there is a new player in the real estate investing town – Big Data. Prior to the tech bubble, it was difficult to find or gain access to information regarding real estate. Unless it was a full-time gig, you needed relationships to gain access to real estate investment opportunities. Even with that information alone, you still needed to drive the property to see if an investment made sense. Completing a comparative analysis of properties a-like was the most effective way for retail investors to make a decision. Post tech bubble; however, this process became rare. During the post-tech bubble in the early 2000’s, revolutionary technologies, such as Google Maps, Redfin, Zillow, and Walk Score, appeared in the world. This became the first major step in shifting the way we invest in real estate. These technologies provided, nearly, instant gratification when seeking answers to questions involving real estate.

DiversyFund’s Real Estate Investment Criteria

What Criteria Does DiversyFund Look For When Posting Real Estate Investment Projects? Although learning about crowdfunding investments in real estate is our main goal, we don’t choose every project. We have very specific criteria on how we pick our investment properties. DiversyFund evaluates deals on a case-by-case basis. In addition, depending on the frequency of repeat business, terms are in most cases negotiable. There are four initial factors that we address when reviewing purchase and refinance real estate investment projects: Volume & Recency Their track record of how much volume and how recent the investments they’ve managed helps to understand their deal flow and market knowledge. Time & Quality Effectiveness Turnaround time is imperative to return on investment. The longer the investment is held, the higher the holding costs. However, if there is too much of a rush to flip the project, quality suffers. Financing History Prior financing history will […]

Is Compliance Irrelevant if the Real Estate Deal Isn’t Good?

So, you’re wondering if compliance is totally irrelevant if the real estate deal is no good. Well, it long story short, not necessarily. For investment firms, this can only be true if there’s an assumption that regulatory paperwork, processing, and reporting is compliant. That being said, compliance is what makes a company sustainably viable as well as trust worthy. There is no discounting it. However, compliance can help protect the investor, to a certain degree, if a deal goes sour. How do you know if the Real Estate Deal is good?

Even more so, it can show you what key factors make a good investment from any real estate deal you vet. As long as you know where to look, you can make informed decisions based on whether the investment aligns with your portfolio and […]
