EquityHunt is a Meeting place for Accredited Real Estate Investors and Sponsors to get deals funded and developed. From the investors point of view, with the wild fluctuations and less then desirable returns in the stock markets. Investors are looking for the equity growth and stable income that real estate has historically returned. From the sponsor/developers point of view, the difficult financial lending markets have lead to an increasingly larger valley of death for real estate deals. The valley is growing between what can be financed traditionally through a financial institution and the down payment required. EquityHunt is first a meeting place for investors and sponsors, and also a market place for sponsors, and them a continuing network for real estate development.
EquityHunt grew out of the imagination of a very successful real estate developer. He saw a way of bringing the fast growing internet technology world into his business to make it more efficient. Naturally as any good entrepreneur would do, he partnered with a friend that brought expertise in the internet technology to build EquityHunt. The idea that success is a journey and a ongoing process of reinventing and making it better EquityHunt was formed. Lots of sweat equity has gone into this project so far and lots more will as we continue to improve and make EquityHunt a winning model for all members.
