Real estate crowdfunding startup RealtyShares hits hard times, halts new investments

Everything was going swimmingly for RealtyShares just over a year ago. The real estate crowdfunding startup had just purchased one of its biggest rivals, Acquire Real Estate, and had plans to grow its investment in commercial and multifamily real estate, as well as “fix and flip” and construction loans for single-family housing. Then the company ended up selling its residential lending business to Lima One Capital and shifting its focus entirely onto commercial and multifamily lending.
