Real estate crowdfunding platforms have established themselves as one of the alternatives for project financing, and are now aiming for growth through the trend of relocating companies, known as nearshoring.
According to data from the Asociación de Plataformas de Fondeo Colectivo (Afico), from 2018 to 2022, this sector has captured close to 9 billion pesos in capital to finance real estate projects.
In addition, during the last year, investments through crowdfunding had a 40% increase in the number of investors; only at the close of 2022, 800,000 investment accounts were registered.

Real estate crowdfunding platforms see opportunities in nearshoring
Given the nearshoring boom, the platforms see attractive opportunities for investment in the real estate sector, both in Mexico and in the United States, where activity in border areas stands out.
Iván Carmona, co-founder of 100 Ladrillos, indicated that, at the beginning of 2023, a total demand of 505,000 square meters of industrial warehouses was registered in border states, which contribute more than 80% of the market activity.
This growth is due to the relocation of auto parts, technology, manufacturing and automotive companies that were looking for new parks to settle.
“Thanks to real estate crowdfunding it is possible for people to invest in these types of properties that bring great benefits in terms of solidity and growth. This is the reason why we seek to democratize the sector to allow the general public to also have the opportunity to profit (from nearshoring),” mentioned Carmona.
The arrival of companies to install their production lines has encouraged 100 Ladrillos to invest in warehouses in Mexico and the United States. The company’s plan is to invest a total of 300 million pesos, of which 150 million would be related to the industrial warehouse segment.
“Nearshoring has attracted the attention of large real estate developers, so we can say that it is not a fashionable or passing trend, but rather that it is here to stay and will continue to attract a lot of economic movement in the real estate sector,” said the businessman.
The attraction in Texas
The interest in investing in border states arises due to the labor opportunities represented by nearshoring and the growing commercial exchange between Mexico and the United States, which has made Texas one of the preferred places for Mexicans.
This state is also the tenth-largest economy in the world and is home to the 50 headquarters of the most important companies in the world.
In this regard, Carmona stated that Texas is one of the most dynamic and solid real estate markets in the United States, which is a benefit for Mexican investors looking to diversify.
“Texas has a strong economic development and is a strategic point for foreign trade logistics solutions. This in times of the nearshoring boom will attract greater movement in Real Estate, especially industrial. It is precisely this growth that benefits real estate crowdfunding platforms such as 100 Bricks, which seeks to capture opportunities to democratize the benefits of company relocation,” he added.
