Highland Heights, Ohio...
Crowdfunding websites like Kickstarter and GoFundMe are known for their ability to connect the masses to a variety of projects in need of funding. Now, there’s a new crowdfunding website dedicated to the world of real estate projects. Headquartered in Cleveland, Brelion offers an innovative and secure platform that allows individuals to invest in – and profit from – residential and commercial real estate projects.
“Simply put, Brelion connects accredited investors –– with real estate companies that are looking for funding. Everyone, from Forest City to Dan Gilbert, needs funding for real estate,” explains Brelion Founder and CEO Vadim Kleyner. “Our secure platform allows these investors to earn up to 24 percent returns, while giving worthwhile real estate projects quicker and easier access to funding than they could find through traditional methods, like a bank.”
On Brelion’s website, www.brelion.com, individuals can browse pre-vetted real estate opportunities and invest in projects by creating an account, undergoing accreditation and pledging an investment of their choice. Minimum investment can start as low as $1,000.
Brelion is the only real estate crowdfunding platform to establish itself in the Cleveland area.
“By investing in real estate we directly invest in our communities. One of our goals is to help people in the area be a part of the revitalization of Northeast Ohio,” says Clevelander Kleyner. “There’s a sense of pride Clevelanders have in their city and they want to personally be a part of making it spectacular. With Brelion, we’re saying, ‘You don’t have to be a million-dollar real estate investor to make a difference in the neighborhoods that matter to you.’”
The Brelion vision extends beyond the region as well, with future projects slated to extend globally.
In addition to differentiating itself by focusing on Northeast Ohio ventures, Brelion offers some of the ITs industry’s most cutting-edge security features. The website deploys several layers of advanced software security and data encryption protocols, including SSL 256 bit certificate, hosted in Microsoft Azure Cloud.
Real estate crowdfunding is expected to grow considerably in the coming years, from $1 billion in 2014 to at least $3.5 billion by the end of 2016 (source: Commercial Property Executive). The SEC recently approved the passage of Title III of the JOBS Act, set to take effect May 16, 2016. The new regulation allows more individuals to invest smaller amounts in projects – opening up the ability for more extensive crowdfunding.
Notes Kleyner: “Brelion allows a real estate company to execute projects with greater ease. In turn, their work provides an immediate and serviceable need to a family, a neighborhood or the local economy. Even a small investment can help improve lives – in your locale and beyond.”
Operating out of Cleveland, Brelion, LLC. is proud to be the first active real estate crowdfunding platform in the Northeast Ohio region. The company’s mission is to make it easy for everyday people to profit from global real estate projects by connecting investors to real estate opportunities.
