Fairway Responds to the Rise of Crowdfunding Platforms with a Redesigned Website

Fairway discusses its relationship with crowdfunding and changes made to its online presence to better compete with crowdfunding platforms.

PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Fairway America ("Fairway"), the nation's leading authority on Small Balance Real Estate ("SBRE") announces the consolidation of its two main websites: Fairwayamerica.com and SBREfunds.com. Recognizing the need to provide one simple platform to enhance its stakeholders' online experience, Fairway's entire online presence will reside at fairwayamerica.com going forward, rather than maintaining a separate website for its capital raising activities, which are conducted by Fairway America Capital Markets Group through its affiliation with a FINRA registered Broker/Dealer. Current and prospecmultive investors and sponsors have already commented on how the combined and streamlined site has improved their understanding of the offerings and other materials on the site.

Fairway consolidated its online presence to improve the consistency and simplicity of important information and to visually augment its online presence in response to the recent rise of commercial real estate crowdfunding platforms. Although Fairway America is not a crowdfunding site, Fairway's marketplace page is designed to promote current private real estate offerings and is the page most closely compared against such sites. "We are excited about the upcoming designs for our new marketplace, and we believe our stakeholders are going to see a significant improvement," says Spencer Stevens, Marketing Associate at Fairway. The new marketplace will be designed to clearly identify and differentiate upcoming deals in a visually appealing, easy to navigate way. Investors will have an easier time understanding the overall project objectives and locating Fairway's extensive due diligence, which is provided in great detail to investors on all deals. The new marketplace is scheduled to be revealed around the end of October.

Barry Johnson, Fairway's VP of Acquisitions and an MAI appraiser, explains the difference between Fairway America and the crowdfunding platforms. "We differentiate ourselves in three specific ways. First, we believe in placing our sponsors through rigorous due diligence. Second, we invest alongside our investors into most of the deals we make available to our investors. Third, instead of raising capital on a 'best efforts' approach, like many crowdfunding sites, we are typically attempting to raise the full equity amount." Fairway does not try to compete with other sites by providing access to a large quantity of deals. Rather, Fairway is focused on only bringing quality, appropriately risk-adjusted deals to its marketplace. "All deals we bring to our site have to have passed the rigorous due diligence process we follow before making an investment by Fairway," said Johnson. This focus has not changed in over 20 years and drives decisions on value the team at Fairway brings to investors, both online and offline.

"Fairway is not a crowdfunding real estate site in the traditional sense but uses the general solicitation and advertising available based on the 2013 JOBS Act," says Matt Burk, CEO of Fairway. "We initiate new relationships with high quality investors interested in serious managers doing serious due diligence. Since some of the deals we have passed on, because of our due diligence, have later appeared on other sites, I am not certain that those other sites employ the same rigorous diligence process we undertake at Fairway."

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments.

Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector.

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
If you are part of the cloud development community, you certainly know about “serverless computing,” almost a misnomer. Because it implies there are no servers which is untrue. However the servers are hidden from the developers. This model eliminates operational complexity and increases developer productivity. We came from monolithic computing to client-server to services to microservices to the serverless model. In other words, our systems have slowly “dissolved” from monolithic to function-...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex ...
