Decent platform. Deal flow is fair (currently offering 4 deals in addition to their 2 REITs). Some of the investments they offer are 1031 eligible which are a little harder to find. However, the 1031 eligible deals seem to offer less attractive returns so they didn't seem worth the potential tax advantage. Investment minimums are generally around $25k except for the REITs are $1k. I have a little money in the REIT and it pays 8% annual returns. Payments have been timely, but 8% is less attractive than other investments.

As a beginner and non-accredited investor Realty Mogul had great customer service - they were willing to hold my hand on calls and speak to the different offerings available, as well as the market in general and what it takes to be an accredited investor. Their 'MogulREIT I' fund just lost 2% NAV due to offering costs, which I think could have been more clearly noted (up to 3% offering costs was mentioned in the offering circular).

After the launch of their REIT, there have been few private placement deals offered, and I don’t find them as attractive as the ones directed into the REIT. I currently have a position in three deals taken prior to the launch of the REIT. One is performing as expected, one slightly below and one suspended payments fourth quarter 2016.

Given the firm's emphasis on their REIT offering - I have noted that the quality of new deals has decreased significantly.  Though they perform solid vetting and due diligence, I have found that other platforms do a better job on this than they do.

I have been investing in RM for 4 years and have had 20 deals that have gone full cycle. Most of my investments were in debt offerings which yielded an average of 7% return which is not great but this site was one of the original REC sites so there was some bumps at the outset.

The model has shifted at RM to a REIT offering and they are not offering too many individual deals.

I think they do a good job at RM but I am not interested in the REIT offering so I am not using the site as much anymore.
