Grocery-anchored real estate investing

For starters, private equity firm First National Realty Partners gives you access to the lucrative potential of necessity-based commercial real estate. With FNRP’s platform, accredited investors can invest in institutional-quality, grocery-anchored real estate investments without the leg work of finding deals on their own.

Since the investments are necessity-based, they tend to perform well during times of economic volatility. And of course, it won’t be your job to deal with tenant complaints and maintenance issues.

Meet Your Retirement Goals Effortlessly

The road to retirement may seem long, but with WiserAdvisor, you can find a trusted partner to guide you every step of the way

WiserAdvisor matches you with vetted financial advisors that offer personalized advice to help you to make the right choices, invest wisely, and secure the retirement you've always dreamed of. Start planning early, and get your retirement mapped out today.

Get Started


If you’re an accredited investor, but commercial real estate isn’t your thing, you can also check out DLP Capital — a private financial services and real estate investment firm — that makes investing in REITs easily accessible so you can benefit from high-return investments, solid dividends and the potential for moderate, long-term capital appreciation.

DLP Capital’s housing fund was created with the goal of improving communities that produce a lot of rental income through their acquisition and management of these rental homes. So, not only are you investing in a worthy asset, you’re investing in its community.

For those of you who are non-accredited investors, don’t worry, there are accessible options for you to get your hands in the real estate game too.

Invest in rental and vacation properties

With Arrived’s online platform, you can invest in shares of rental homes and vacation rentals.

Start by browsing a curated selection of homes, vetted for their appreciation and income potential. Once you find a property you like, you can choose the number of shares you want to buy. With Arrived, you can start investing in real estate with just $100.

If you’ve got a particular city in mind — perhaps one you dreamed of moving to one day before increased cost of living made these cities unaffordable to many people — you’re in luck. With Cityfunds by Nada, you can now own a piece of a desirable U.S. city without actually buying property.
