GROUNDFLOOR is the first and only peer-to-peer micro-lending platform for funding U.S. real estate deals. Everyday investors earn high rates of interest on short-term secured loans starting with as little as $10. We allow everyone to be the bank, including non-accredited investors. We offer rates and services to real estate developers that the banks and hard money lenders cannot.
GROUNDFLOOR gives investors a platform to jump into real estate deals and borrowers the opportunity to tap into the power of thousands of people across the Internet wanting to back their deals.
