Real estate investing for real people

Fundrise results graph

Investing with Fundrise is similar to buying stocks, only instead of funding a company, your investment goes towards buying real estate through real estate investment trusts (REITs).

You’re basically crowdfunding the purchase of properties all over the country, from commercial developments in Los Angeles to residential buildings in Washington D.C..

You’ll have a diverse portfolio of assets that would usually only be available to major real estate players, and receive payouts through quarterly dividend distributions. You’ll also get a portion of an asset’s appreciation when its investment term ends.

Since 2014, the average annualized return on Fundrise investments has been between 8% and 12%. To put that into perspective, you’d earn less than 1% interest with a typical savings account — 0.06%, according to the FDIC.

Cut down on fees, boost your earnings

Thanks to a combination of cutting-edge technology and in-house expertise, Fundrise is able to maximize your returns while keeping your fees low.

There are no transaction fees, sales commissions, or additional fees for enabling features on your account. Investors pay a 0.15% annual investment advisory fee and a 0.85% annual asset management fee, which works out to $10 for every $1,000 you invest each year.

You can also have your advisory fees waived if your friends join Fundrise using your special invite link.
