We started Patch of Land as we saw the desire to invest in specific real estate opportunities unfulfilled by traditional investment products on the market. REITs, mutual funds and blind pools all made it either financially underwhelming, too time-consuming or presented a lack of control. With the advent of new solicitation and crowdfunding laws, our founders saw a new space where transparency, low minimums, project by project investment and ease of transaction set the stage for real change and real profit for a new class of investors.
We believe the way to secure the best real estate investment opportunities is to foster quality partnerships with a curated group of professional real estate developers. We do this by not only making our service as easy to use for them as it is for our Investors, but also through pre-funding capital requirements. Our executive team personally funds many of the projects you see on our platform through Patch of Land and then allows our Investors to purchase portions of that pre-filled investment. We believe this shows our commitment to rigorous due diligence, transparency and faith in our investments because we've got skin in the game too.
