Recent Deals Discussed & Progress on CrowdDD

We hired new programmers and fixed most of the bugs at CrowdDD.  The Overall Rating sort is fixed. You can now see the number of ratings and reviews for each sponsor or platform.  In addition you can choose how may results to display per page.

We have more features coming this week including a Submit a sponsor page.  Use the contact us page if you see any bugs or have suggestions for added features that will make the site more useful.

We looked at quite a few deals over the past few weeks.

My rating scale

5 - Heck Yes 4 - Yes 3 - Maybe 2 - No 1 - Heck No

BroadMark Debt Fund I and Fund II.  I like the funds and would rate them a 4. We had a private webinar with the sponsor and 30 members invested over $1.6 million in the 2 funds.

There was a lot of interest in YieldStreets latest offering, Pre settlement Fund V.  I would rate it a 3, but members reported that it sold out in hours.

Buck Joffreys Belize Hilton Mahogany Bay I would rate a 2.  The risk of development in Belize is great. Presentation felt like a timeshare presentation. Yuck.

Logan Airport Self Storage sent by Deal Flow. I would rate this a 1.5. The worse self storage deal I have ever read. They actually based the projections on a 25 year hold. The sponsor gives itself equity and up to 10% of the offering can go to brokers etc.  That's before you read the PPM and the 3 classes of shares.

Taking a close look at Origins Fund this week. We have a private webinar set up to do some DD digging.

I just reviewed a new deal on CrowdStreet, CCI Clear Lakes IX, an office deal in Clear Lake, TX. What struck me is the Sponsor is only investing $50,000 of the $4,500,000 capital required. That's 0.5%! The deal may have merits, but if a Sponsor is only willing to put $50,000 at risk and make their money from fees, I stop reading at that point. Anyone else feel this way?
