    • Will the major RE platforms like RealtyMogul, PatchofLand, RealtyShares, and others be acquired or go public?
    • Can the new SEC Crowdfunding rule (Title III) be used to finance smaller properties (up to $1MM) and will this rule bring non-accredited investors into real estate investing?

    • Will the largest commercial real estate companies use online platforms to a greater extent?
    • Is online investing in real estate becoming a part of every portfolio? How does it rate as to safety against all other investments?

    • How will increased SEC scrutiny on real estate platforms and other deals affect the marketplace?
