Financing solutions to aid your real estate business

GROUNDFLOOR Finance is an alternative financing platform dedicated to real estate investors looking for financing on your next project. Whether you have a project in hand, are a new flipper or are just interested in ways to gain from real estate, GROUNDFLOOR has options for every real estate investor.

Invest Fractionally in Real Estate Projects

Did you know that real estate has historically realized more stable returns than the stock market? While indexes like the S&P 500 have yielded average annual returns of around 10 percent, they can also fluctuate wildly from year to year. Real estate, by contrast, provides investment opportunities that tend to be much more stable, with higher yields.

By signing up for a Business Account on GROUNDFLOOR, you can also get in on the action. On the platform, you are able to create your own custom portfolio of fractionalized real estate investments, all for a minimum of just $10. It’s a simple and cost-effective way to diversify your working dollars, and a great avenue to begin investing for your business’s future.

Invest in Short-Term, High-Yield Real Estate Notes

Think about the kinds of accounts you’ve opened to house your business’s funds. Are they adequately helping your money grow? You might want to consider switching from a traditional CD or other interest-bearing account to a short-term, high-yield real estate Note.

GROUNDFLOOR Notes offer higher rates than CDs (traditionally two to three percent) — yielding anywhere from four to eight percent annualized interest — but with the same date-delimited repayment terms.  And with as little as three-month term options, your business might benefit from the extra financial boost this kind of investment can provide.

Get a Business Line of Credit for Real Estate Investing

If you’re looking to break into real estate investing and want to have an edge when you are out looking for properties, think about getting a business line of credit. Sourcing investment properties is difficult and stressful, often requiring you to move quickly when you find a property you want.

GROUNDFLOOR’s QC Maxx program is a great financing solution that can be hugely beneficial to your real estate business. When you become pre-approved for a business line of credit through this program, securing real estate deals — such as fix and flip or BRR projects — becomes a cinch. Not only do you appear more attractive to sellers, you also benefit from a streamlined closing process. You’ll be on your way to the closing table — and to the construction site — before you know it.
