No, we are not a crowdfunding platform, nor do we intend to be one. We do not sell shares in the real estate developments we advertise. We do not act as intermediaries between developers and investors, either.

Is BrickFunding and Investment Firm?

We are not an Investment Firm. We do not sell shares for investment opportunities in the real estate crowdfunding we advertise, and we do not intermediate in transactions. We do not offer financial advice to our users, either. This means that we are not an Investment Firm and we do not need authorisation from Spanish Securities & Exchange Commission (CNMV) or any other entity.

Is BrickFunding a real estate agent?

BrickFunding is a thematic search engine specialised in real estate crowdfunding, supported by the most important real estate crowdfunding companies to help investors find the best real estate crowdfunding investment offers all over the world.

Where does BrickFunding get its information?

Just like other search engines and aggregators, we collect our information from the Internet. This means that our data are accurate as long as the data found on each different real estate crowdfunding platform are. We calculate data based on the public information offered by the different platforms we list.We try to make the information on different projects as accurate and to-date as possible, but of course, we may make a mistake. If this occurs, we would be grateful if you sent us your comments in the event that you find an error. We will correct it as soon as possible.

How does BrickFunding do business?

At BrickFunding, we offer our clients different collaborative possibilities. With cost-per-click, since we redirect investor users. We do not manage the investment; we merely offer quality traffic. Cost-per-action plays a role, as well. We believe this collaboration is very attractive for our clients. On our website, we have a platforms-clients section with information drawn from public information. If the user likes you, they can sign up for your newsletter to receive your information by clicking a button. And lastly, through banner advertising. Besides these collaborations, and as a sign of loyalty to our clients, personalised content may be spread on our Social Networks and Blog.

How does it work?

The user searches and compares on our platform, using the filter options. The user selects the most attractive one, based on his or her interests. In this field, the investor can see more photographs of the project and access information, such as target profitability, minimum project investment, vesting period, real estate type, time remaining and the location. When the investor decides to click the I'M INTERESTED option, it redirects to the original platform with the exhibited project, ready to invest on your platform.

Is BrickFunding free?

Yes, BrickFunding is a service that is totally free to users.

Why should I use BrickFunding ?

At BrickFunding, we propose using just one website to find and compare the different investment opportunities offered by all the platforms on the market. This will save you an incredible amount of time, finding the real estate investment opportunities that best fit your needs in a more direct way. Diversify your portfolio more efficiently with BrickFunding by accessing our listings, which were previously and intelligently classified and organised.

How does BrickFunding calculate the profitability it shows?

The annual projected profitability we show for each opportunity is as shown by the different platforms we list on their websites. Due to the disparate criteria used by each platform to show its opportunities (there are platforms that show gross profitability, others show net profitability, and some refer to the total investment period, etc.), on occasion, we recalculate the IRR we show, so that all the opportunities always show net and twelve-month (annual) profitability.In the event that a platform offers this data, we simply add it without modifying it. On the other hand, if the platform offers approximate profitability within a range (15%-20%), we take the average (17.5%) and only show this data as projected profitability.We do this so that our users can compare the different opportunities we list on our platform in a balanced way. You can find more information in our crowdfunding dictionary.In any event, we highly recommend that our users carefully verify all information regarding an opportunity on the original website before making an investment.

How can I get more information on a real estate crowdfunding project found on BrickFunding ?

Each real estate crowdfunding project listed has a direct link to the crowdfunding platform offering it. BrickFunding does not manage the projects it shows. When you enter a project advertisement, it redirects you to the crowdfunding platform website that offers it. This website holds complete information on the project. If you wantfurther information, you should directly contact the platform offering it.

Why is there only information from some real estate crowdfunding platforms?

Even though here at BrickFunding, we work hard to offer you the most complete and exhaustive listing of global real estate crowdfunding opportunities. Some platforms do not publicly offer their investment listings, and for the time being, we have been unable to reach a collaboration agreement with them, so we cannot show their projects. We are constantly working to increase the number of participating platforms, to offer you information from the greatest number of platforms possible.Both if you are aware of a platform we do not list and with which you think we should work, and if you are a real estate crowdfunding company and want the projects in your database to appear on BrickFunding, write to us at info@brickfunding.com, or use our contact form, and we will contact you as soon as possible.

Doesn’t BrickFunding compete with crowdfunding platforms?

No, we are not a crowdfunding platform, and we don't plan on becoming one. BrickFunding does not compete with real estate crowdfunding platforms; rather, it channels traffic to them. Our goal is to offer more traffic and better quality to these platforms, segmenting them by countries and sectors.Here at BrickFunding, we are focused on making a quick, effective search engine to offer our users the greatest amount of information possible. The links send you to the platforms with which we work. We aren't interested in becoming a target site. Take a look at the results pages; the goal is for the user to click and go to a specific investment project.

How does BrickFunding classify the projects it shows?

We use our own algorithm that groups and classifies projects based on exclusively technical criteria. The user decides how to organise them: alphabetically, by expected profitability, by the minimum investment amount, geographically, etc. At BrickFunding, we do not prioritise any platform over the other, nor do we make one project stand out from the rest. No crowdfunding platform holds shares in BrickFunding. We are an independent company.

How did BrickFunding obtain my content?

BrickFunding has its own software that collects content from the Internet. We only index publicly available content, and from that information, we only save the data necessary to offer a basic description of the investment projects so that our users can find what they need. Of course, we also receive content from platforms with whom we have a collaboration agreement and decide to list their projects with us.

What does BrickFunding do with my content?

Like all search engines, we index information so that the search experience is as easy as possible for the investor. Different projects are clearly marked, and the crowdfunding platform in question is shown, including a direct link to your website. Your project listings are yours, not ours.

How can I post my website’s content on BrickFunding ?

The most practical way to do this is to send us an XML feed or to contact our technical department to develop an API. Contact our customer service department by sending an email to platforms@brickfunding.com

Do you want to delete an advertisement?

The information on BrickFunding is public domain and was previously publicised. If, even so, you want to delete an advertisement, contact us and it will be removed from our listings.

Does BrickFunding require exclusiveness?

No. As of today, there is no other global aggregator specialised in real estate crowdfunding, but if one is created in the future, of course we will not require exclusiveness. We believe that it benefits platforms to promote their projects on the greatest number of sites possible, maximising their chances of receiving qualified traffic.

Does BrickFunding only work with large crowdfunding platforms?
