As a side note, I think it is interesting to watch the evolution of about 5-6 crowdfunding sites. Patch of Land takes compliance and protecting the investor more seriously than most crowdfunding sites. Also, and you know how important this is to me! These sites have a wider range of properties, including commercial deals with equity components.

I don't have the numbers exactly, but I will guess the borrower broke even at best. It can take years to take possession of a property or even arbitrate a case. Investments on Patch of Land are not debt directly in the property itself but a share of the debt that the platform has already funded.
I find both these sites communicate frequently, and answer all my questions. Terms — Most deals are 12-month residential loans. Any financing is for business purposes only, may not be for personal use and will be subject to certain restrictions and requirements, including but not limited to a credit evaluation and approval of the subject property. I get monthly credits to my account and all monies have been paid on time and as-expected. Michelle — He answered this question in the last paragraph.
Helped me to see they were not falling asleep at the wheel and staying on top of it. Helped me to see they were not falling asleep at the wheel and staying on top of it. P atch of Land is a marketplace lender that originates residential and commercial real estate loans by leveraging proprietary technology to support its innovative crowdfunding platform. Patch of Land is a debt investment real estate crowdfunding site but is it the best option for your money? We need to make sure they are exposed. Did the borrower end up making money on his deal? This very short-term time horizon was a problem for me. I am also invested with PatchOfLand. While i can tolerate losing money in the markets or in my investments, i would absolutely hate to lose money simply because my platform went bankrupt.
You should be comfortable with the local market situation as well as the numbers like loan-to-value ratio. Another reason why i would whole heartedly recommend Patch of Land. The platform then advertises the deal on its website and sells pieces of its own loan to investors. Just wanted to point out that we all want to receive more frequent updates, right? Patch of Land only offers debt investments, compared to which offers both debt and equity investments. Historically, real estate lending in the U. I do expect a few will go past the term, but that is expected and clearly stated in the disclosure documents.
Maybe I will post on these at a later date. I am giving negative feedback on patch of land. Origination fees and other fees may apply. He played games on whether to sell, hold it, etc. RealtyShares has been expanding aggressively and generally has more investments available than any other platform. Today, the team has grown by multiples, but continues its focus on technology-enabled lending. They work much more like a regular loan marketplace and charge fees for property appraisal, closing costs and origination points that are already factored into each deal listed on the platform.

Not only is Patch of Land passing through all the fees on its investment but may also be making money on the interest rate it charges developers. Please do not ask more—asking these are not free. They are working out well at present, but not an established track record at present. Then the next day they show the loan as fully funded and closed which was a complete lie.
