Invest like a real estate mogul with access to major commercial real estate projects
CrowdStreet is a real estate investing platform that gives investors direct access to individual commercial real estate investment opportunities, allowing you to review, compare, and personally choose the deals that meet your own investment criteria. Their managed funds and advisory services give you the same level of access, but they will handle the portfolio, making it even easier for you to invest.

How you make money
As an investor, you will receive a return on your investment when the company distributes money. This will depend on whether you choose an equity, debt or hybrid investment. Typically distributions are made to investors: as a share of profits for equity investors; at an agreed upon interest for debt investors; and/or when the investment property is sold. It's important to note that not all of the offerings are currently cash flowing, and therefore may not pay distributions until later in the hold period, if at all.
How CrowdStreet makes money
CrowdStreet makes money by charging sponsors to use their technology and list on their platform.
The platform doesn’t charge any direct fees to investors, but it is assumed that sponsors will build their fees into the structure of the project deals.
In order to perform tasks like negotiating a property purchase sponsors can charge additional fees throughout the life of the project. These are usually taken out before profit is calculated and distributions are paid.
Is it safe?
CrowdStreet has been around for nearly a decade now, and has raised over $24 million in multiple rounds of funding to date. So far, thousands of investors have invested over $ $2.8 billion in more than 580 projects with Crowdstreet, earning over $417 million in distributions.
As with any investment, investing in real estate presents certain risks and there is no guarantee of future outcomes. The real estate market has economic cycles and it is difficult to know how and when the economy will change. CrowdStreet works to mitigate this risk by only presenting opportunities that have experienced real estate managers in place to manage the assets after the closing.
How You’re Taxed
Short-term capital gains are from selling assets owned for one year or less, which are taxed at ordinary income tax rates. Long-term capital gains are for assets owned for more than a year, and are taxed at a lower rate than ordinary income, with rates ranging from 0% to 20% depending on your total taxable income.
Simple, intuitive web site. Very responsive investor relations team. More deals and better quality offerings than any other online marketplace. I'm a fan.
I'm an accredited investor and I was displeased with the minimums. I like the ability to diversify.
