Not ready for private equity real estate? Compare real estate crowdfunding options

If you’re just curious about passive real estate investments, start with $10 in a real estate crowdfunding platform.

Of course, not all real estate crowdfunding platforms are created equal. Some we love and invest our personal money in. Others… not so much.

To demystify the world of real estate crowdfunding, we compiled a list of the 17 most popular real estate crowdfunding platforms, along with “At a Glance” highlights to help you decide which ones are a good fit for you. They include short-term real estate investments like Concreit and long-term investments like Arrived. Real estate equity investments (Fundrise) and secured debt investments (Groundfloor). Fractional ownership in individual properties (Ark7) and pooled funds (Streitwise). And every combination in between.

Unlike most reviewers, we actually invest in most of these ourselves. Our money is where our mouth is.


Disclosure: We receive a commission from some platforms. We also invest our own personal money in most of them, to keep our reviews firsthand and unbiased.

Active investor? Compare loans for investment properties

investment property loans

We’ve vetted rental property lenders for you.

From interest rates to loan-to-value ratios (LTV), we’ve put together several comparison charts for investment property loans.

Rental property loans are inherently different from short-term fix-and flip loans, so we broke them down into two separate charts for easy loan comparisons.

And if you’re cash-strapped, read up on 17 Clever Ways to Come Up with a Down Payment for a Rental Property.

Never worry again about how you’ll finance your next investment property!

Our Founders Are Every-freakin’-where

Because we’re real estate investors, not faceless corporate hacks.

Deni and Grandkids
Brian and Millie

Deni Supplee and G. Brian Davis love real estate, passive income, lifestyle design, and teaching.

So we combined all those those together to create SparkRental.

Some people just want the high returns and tax benefits of real estate investments, but don’t want the headaches of becoming a landlord. For them, we created our Co-Investing Club and FIRE from Real Estate program to help them invest passively in real estate syndications.

In fact, Brian’s now one of those passive investors, as he spends most of the year traveling overseas with his wife Katie and daughter Millie.

Other investors want the control of owning individual properties directly. For them, we created free landlord software, free calculators (such as a free rental income calculator and free depreciation calculator), and interactive maps such as the best cities for rentals and real estate heat maps

With enough passive income from real estate, you reach financial independence. You can live off your rents and distributions. And then your day job becomes optional, so you can go save the world or whatever else you’d do if you weren’t chained to a job.
