How Tech Changed Real Estate Investing
Technology is an ever-evolving mechanism allowing the world of real estate investing to become more accessible. With technological advances, we’ve seen the evolution of an industry that was once very timely, costly, and exclusive open itself up to the everyday investor.
Read on to see the role tech has played in putting real estate into the hands of everyday investors.
It All Started In 2012
In April 2012, Former President Obama signed the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act into law. Title IV of the JOBs Act allows non-accredited investors to invest through crowdfunding in equity offerings. In other words, capital could now be raised quicker and more people are able to participate in these offerings. *Cue in crowdfunded real estate platforms like DiversyFund*
The JOBs Act opened the door for more people than ever to access institutional-grade real estate investments. The new era of real estate investing is less about who you know and more about finding the right partner to invest with. Now that companies are able to raise capital via aggregated funds, there are many offerings to choose from and most investments can be done in one simple, online transaction.
Tech Brings Reduced Costs
Technology allows for processes to be streamlined and completed quicker than ever. This is especially true when investing in real estate through an online platform. With platforms like DiversyFund’s, investors save big on fees that most real estate investors have traditionally paid. With DiversyFund, our investors pay no platform fees and no middleman fees. This is because we have no middlemen. DiversyFund owns and manages all of our own assets, saving investors money.
In addition to no fees, we’re able to bring low investment minimums to all. The DiversyFund Growth REIT is open to all investors, accredited or not, and has a low minimum of $2,500. Our mission is to bring wealth to the 99%, not keep it in the hands of the same 1% who has always dominated the market.

Tech advancements allow investors to be more passive than ever. This is because everything can now be accessed through online dashboards and portals that track investments.
