Fundrise is a real estate investing platform that I came across in August of 2016. This program interests me, as it has large growth potential over a long term investment. This program is not a liquid investment, and can take some time to liquidate funds.
Fundrise has some lower-cost packages to allow newer investors the chance to try out their service with a smaller initial investment. Their lowest investment package is a $500 starter portfolio and it has a 90 day money back guarantee. But if you bump up to $1,000 you can move into any of the advanced portfolios for free. Back in 2016, I started out with a $1,000 investment. Over the past two years, I have seen a lot of growth, and I have continually added additional funds to my portfolio. I am now invested in 123 projects across most of Fundrise’s real estate investment trusts (REITs).
The Best Part:
The cool part about these REITs is that you receive regular updates about the real estate you are invested in. Also, the share value will fluctuate with the performance. I recently chose to fund a couple of their new REITs so I could experience the program from start to finish. I do not expect a return right away, but look forward to the potential return of the future.
