Invest in GROUNDFLOOR and build wealth through real estate.


WE WERE BUILT FOR TIMES LIKE THESE

GROUNDFLOOR  was born out of the belief that there is a fundamentally better way to capitalize America. Banks and Wall Street can’t be trusted to do it, but your fellow Americans can. We believe that a critical mass of individual investors can make a difference, keep capital flowing, and therefore keep an important part of our economy moving. Concentrating capital allocation among the few unnecessarily constricts liquidity in times of stress. When lending is financed through millions of individual decisions, we are free.

We believe in freedom. Freedom to participate in an asset class that is otherwise inaccessible to the general public. Freedom to make your own investment choices based on your own criteria. Freedom to manage your own liquidity and risk as you see fit. Freedom to put your earnings towards the priorities that matter most. 

Freedom is the foundation of America. Shouldn’t it be the foundation of our financial system too? We think so.

BUILD WEALTH THROUGH REAL ESTATE LENDING

GROUNDFLOOR is a wealthtech company that offers high-yield, short-term, real estate DEBT investments to the general public.

Unlike other real estate investment platforms where investors own an equity stake in real estate property through eREITS or other types of funds for 3-5 year terms, our investment options are based on secured, collateralized real estate debt with shorter 12-18 month terms. Debt products inherently carry less risk, which is why we’ve been able to generate consistent 10%+ returns for our investors over the past six years, with repayments received in 6-9 months on average.

Even in a prolonged downturn with extended terms, we still believe our investments provide an attractive return with a high degree of liquidity and relatively low volatility - especially compared to the performance of other financial markets and asset classes during this crisis period.  All without giving up the freedom to decide for yourself whether and in what to invest.   Learn more about how GROUNDFLOOR is different.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

How It Works

  HouseTool_icon LOOKING FOR FINANCING?

  • GROUNDFLOOR is the only direct lender offering crowdsourced capital for short-term residential real estate loans. As a result, we are not reliant on traditional financial institutions for our lending capital, and can continue financing deals through this crisis.

  • GROUNDFLOOR is currently offering 12-18 month loans to real estate investors for 1-4 Unit Properties in GA, FL, NC, SC and AL.

  • In light of market and COVID-19 dynamics, GROUNDFLOOR has made temporary changes to our lending standards and policies. While we are open for business and accepting loan applications, please plan ahead knowing that realistic closing time frames may be delayed significantly .

WHY GROUNDFLOOR:

  • GROUNDFLOOR was founded on the idea that private capital markets should be open to individual investors, regardless of their wealth or financial status. As a result, we are not reliant on traditional financial institutions for our lending capital, and can continue financing deals and offering new investments on the platform, even in times of crisis.  

  • Real estate remains a strong alternative investment with growth & upside. There already is a shortage of residential housing in the US, and the current environment will put downward pressure on the real estate properties that our real estate developers seek. This will create demand for financing, which will create more investment opportunities for you. 

  • We have the in-house expertise to manage through these troubling times. Collectively, our executive and management teams have over twelve decades of experience in real estate. Multiple members have been through prior economic and real estate downturns. Rest assured that we have experienced crisis conditions before, and we have the tools and expertise needed to get through this one as well.

  • In times of capital scarcity, loan quality actually increases. During downturns, only the strongest real estate developers have the liquidity and confidence to make moves in the market, resulting in loans on the best properties, with the best developers, with even less risk to investors over the long term. A win-win for all.
