Questions

Why is your company going to succeed?

Cross-Border Investing: International investors have a very difficult time investing into American real estate because of capital restrictions. We have solved this problem by incorporating cryptocurrency into our model, allowing investors to easily move their money overseas. Lack of Liquidity: Real estate is a historically illiquid market. Investors can be stuck holding a property for decades without being able to cash out. By backing our Returns token with physical real estate, we are allowing investors to sell their interest in a property on a listed token exchange. This provides liquidity in the real estate markets. Crypto Market Volatility: The cryptocurrency markets are very volatile and many investors are looking to secure their crypto into other, more secure investments. RealtyReturns provides this security, reducing investor risk.

Where did your team members meet originally?

Our founding team met back in 2014, when we co-founded DreamFunded. DreamFunded was San Francisco’s first FINRA registered equity crowdfunding platform. The core team has been together ever since.

What are the top five risks you see for your business?

1) Lack of user adoption of crypto to funded real estate. 2) Unforeseen Government regulations that can increase the costs of the business. 3) Global real estate crash. 4) The team breaks apart. 4) Investor confidence in cryptocurrency falls. 5) Lack of enough properties that make financial sense for investors.
