Commercial real estate transactions opening for small investors

A new dimension to the classic real estate transaction and funding will soon be available courtesy of SEC rule changes. Delaware residents who have traditionally found participation in commercial real estate investments out of their reach are being given the chance to buy in through crowdfunding at starting rates as low as $5,000. This novel opportunity, like all investments, brings with it some risks.

Reverse mortgages offer a number of potential benefits for homeowners. Some wealth managers claim that by allowing senior citizens to generate supplementary income, these loans may be able to supplant traditional investment alternatives, like home equity lines of credit. One research director at Boston College even said that along with downsizing, reverse mortgages could be viable options for households where Social Security benefits and 401(k) plans fail to provide sufficient income.
