RealCrowd’s Thoughts

Welcome to the first of our planned weekly update emails, featuring the most up to date market stats, our thoughts on important developments during the week, links to the most interesting articles we’re reading, and the results of our weekly sentiment survey.

We are in very uncertain times, both in the overall financial markets, as well as with the health of those we care about around us. Our goal with this newsletter is to communicate the information we are learning from countless conversations with real estate managers, lenders, investors and mentors in the real estate industry. By canvassing the marketplace, we hope to help bring some clarity to our investment space and provide for the beginnings of conversations about how we can forge a path forward during such uncertainty.

You may have noticed we’ve ramped up the production of our podcast, which continues to be an up to the minute take on the latest developments in our industry. We’ve featured nationally recognized guests, a New York Times best selling author, and some familiar voices to those that have listened from the early days of the show.

We encourage you to take a few minutes to complete the sentiment survey below – it’s a simple 4 question survey that will help us track the current state of mind, both from our investor members as well as our real estate managers. We plan to provide a weekly update as to the results with a comparison of outlooks between investors and managers.

Please send us a note with your thoughts, concerns, feedback or inspiring stories as we continue to work as a community to get through these challenging times. Together is the only way we can push forward, and we’re forever grateful to have you on this journey with us!
