Crowdfunding Expansion Could Help Real Estate…In case you missed it: Crowdfunding is a top story in the latest Voice for Real Estate news video. A way to raise money directly from small investors, crowdfunding is set to expand in 2016 because of rules from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission taking effect later this month.
