Tycoon is a real estate crowdfunding platform where people can group-fund real estate deals posted by those looking for capital (for as little as $1000).
The way real estate investing works today provides a great opportunity for disruption.
Traditionally, investing in real estate has been expensive. Typically you need tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to invest, creating high barriers to entry and making it difficult to follow the first rule of investing; to diversify.
When you hear of a great investment opportunity outside of your area, it is difficult to overcome the risk associated with investing in a new market. Existing investment vehicles like REITs are much like mutual funds, unexciting investments that provide little connection to or pride of ownership in the portfolio of properties. Finally, many existing investment opportunities are exclusively open to the accredited investor, and not the masses.
Tycoon is here to change things.
