Buffalo, New York (PRWEB) March 22, 2016
Real estate website EquityHunt (http://www.equityhunt.com) as seen growth in their members as it relates to interaction through introductions. EquityHunt is a free internet platform that connects real estate sponsors/developers with interested accredited investors who browse the deals they post.
"When we last did an analysis of this, comparing 2015 to 2014 performance, we were very pleased as we saw a 43% increase in introductions made on the site," said Steven Czyrny, Marketing Director. "Given our model is a little bit different than some of the crowdfunding sites where funds are raised online, our value is in making connections between accredited investors and real estate developers/sponsors."
Another data point that they've seen increase is the conversions (new member sign up) per introduction--noticing an increase of 68%.
"It appears the good word is getting around," said Kent Keating, Partner. "The more successful introductions EquityHunt makes, the more members we attract."
There have been hundreds of deals posted on EquityHunt since its founding in early 2013, and there are over 140 deals that are active currently.
EquityHunt allows sponsors/developers to choose one of the following asset types: MultiFamily, Land, Portfolio, Hotel, Industrial, Specialty Housing, Retail, Mobile Home Park, Office, & Flips/Renovations.
One aspect of EquityHunt that is attractive to the investor members is the EquityHunt index (http://equityhunt.com/market_info), showing the sponsor/developers' projected IRR by asset type.
The index has improved from an average projected IRR of 18.10% at this time last year, to 20.52% currently.
EquityHunt is a free to use Internet platform that lets real estate developers list their deals for investors to browse through. If interested, these investors can then get directly into contact with the developer through the EquityHunt website, and work together to get the deal funded and developed.
