How Risky is Real Estate Crowdfunding?

Since real estate crowdfunding is a new and innovative financial sector, investors like you may still have concerns about how risky working with Zeus CrowdFunding might be. We understand! Due diligence is always a necessity when making an investment. That’s why Zeus conducts thorough due diligence on every crowdfunding opportunity listed on our site.

No real estate loan or investment is completely without risk. However, after weighing the risks versus rewards on a real estate crowdfunding deal, most people discover that the risks are actually much lower than doing a traditional real estate deal. Here’s why:

1. Experienced leadership

Many of the real estate crowdfunding sites in the United States are startup companies with little, if any, experience in actually funding real estate. These businesses end up passing the responsibility of vetting deals on to their investor customers, which creates a great deal of risk. At Zeus, we are a team of passionate and proven real estate financing professionals committed to true transparency, formidable security, classic underwriting, and lightning speed. We aren’t a new company—for more than a decade, through good times and bad, we’ve reliably funded nearly $1 billion in residential and commercial real estate investment transactions and $2 billion in traditional mortgage loans.

2. Lower risk through diversification

One of the best aspects of real estate crowdfunding is that it allows an investor like you to diversify your portfolio with far less capital. In this way, you can invest in multiple deals and spread the risk out over multiple projects.

3. Pre-funded deals

Before a deal is published for investment on, we have already performed quite a bit of due diligence on it. Our loan professionals each have an extensive background in real estate and know precisely what to look for when it comes to deals with acceptable risk and solid return potential. Basically, our team helps you pick winning real estate investments by filtering out the losers before they ever reach our site. But that’s not all—Zeus CrowdFunding actually PRE-FUNDS every deal that we publish on our site. That means borrowers get their funds immediately and Zeus CrowdFunding takes on the risk first.

If you still have any concern or questions about Zeus CrowdFunding’s customizable lending and investment platform, that’s no problem! Call our real estate experts anytime at 713-ASK-ZEUS. We’re always ready to help!
