Real estate technology, or proptech, is the use of technology to drive efficiencies in real estate, ultimately leading to improved asset returns, reduced friction, and greater transparency.

As a real estate investor, not only can you deploy these technology solutions in your portfolio, you can also invest in the companies themselves. These sort of investments are both highly risky and illiquid but can offer tremendous upside potential.

Here's a look at proptech start-ups that are crowdfunding on Republic's platform.

Nada's tagline is "buy and sell your home online, pay nada." Nada is working to make the homebuying and selling experience a one-stop-shop. The company is integrating Realtor, mortgage, home insurance, and legal services all into one in an effort to minimize the cost to the end user.

Nada was voted "Best of Zillow 2020" by homeowners. Although this data comes from a small sample size, the company claims users have saved an average of $10,000 by using the platform.

Kibbo

Kibbo's tagline is "a subscription service combining co-living + vanlife." The company is targeting the millennial generation through its network of vans turned mobile bedrooms. Think of it as a studio apartment on wheels, equipped with Wi-Fi, groceries, and other provisions.

The company has had over 270,000 downloads of its software and has sold over $6.5 million worth of software. The platform has over 3.5 million listings spread across over 200 MLS feeds.

Doorage

Doorage's tagline is "the modern alternative to storage and moving." The company is a door-to-door storage provider that brings convenient, affordable, clean, and safe storage direct to consumers. Users are charged based on a volume-based model and can get online estimates and book instantly.

The company had a projected $1.1 million in revenue in 2020, covering three markets and over 1,200 customers served.

Doorage is raising up to $1.07 million on a $17.5 million valuation cap. The minimum investment threshold is $100. As of this writing, the company has raised just under $10,000.

CountertopSmart

CountertopSmart's tagline is "the ingenious way to save big on countertops. The company is finding unused stone from countertop fabricators and creating a marketplace of product that's traditionally wasted. Users can search through thousands of partial slabs and receive a quote for installation.

The company claims that this process saves customers 60% to 80% and turns what's traditionally a cost center into a profit center for countertop fabricators. CountertopSmart has a $750,000 revenue run rate and is active in Austin and San Antonio, Texas.

CountertopSmart is raising up to $1.07 million on a $8.5 million valuation cap. The minimum investment threshold is $100. As of this writing, the company has raised just under $60,000.

The Millionacres bottom line

Proptech has been receiving tremendous funding from venture capital over the last few years as the real estate industry continues to move forward. Regulation CF made it possible for technology start-ups to raise from non-accredited investors. As a real estate investor, not only can you deploy these technology solutions in your portfolio, you can invest in the companies themselves.
