Why Property Crowdfunding Is Better Than Syndication?

An easy analogy is that Syndication is your normal taxi service, and real estate crowdfunding is like Uber.
But, as Uber offers many options and features for users in addition to providing access that an ordinary taxi service is not able to match the requirements of real estate crowdfunding, it leaves syndication out in the dirt.

The majority of the time syndicates are made up of people who you are familiar with and have a great relationship with. They are typically relatives and friends.
You feel confident investing your money with them because you have their trust. However, anyone who has had business dealings with family members and acquaintances can attest to the fact that this is where the problems start.
