Yes, crowdfunding is out of reach for the average newbie syndicator. But if you’ve got a great deal and a willingness to hustle, it is possible to partner with a larger real estate company and take advantage of the capital available through crowdfunding. Platforms like Realty Mogul are looking for sponsors with a track record, so if you don’t have one—find someone who does.
