Interesting real estate REIT. Slick website. Anybody know anything about this or have any experience with them?

Any thoughts given the current state of the market?

Yea, I started investing a little with them about 6 months ago. Just small amounts every month. Returns are pretty consistent. They advertise roughly 10% returns per year, but it’s highly illiquid due to the nature of their business. The nice thing is, your account value does’t fluctuate with the regular market, it’s almost always going up, just in tiny little amounts per day or quarter depending on the distribution.

I have a small amount of money with Fundrise, they are not so different from lots of private (unlisted) REITs out there, except they make it easier for small investors to buy in and set up a regular investing plan with monthly purchases.

Thanks for bringing up the lack of immediate liquidity and possibility of frozen redemptions which seem similar to investing in mutual funds in an IRA/401k account. Somehow I missed the part about automatic monthly deductions from a checking account while I was viewing their impressive website last night. Glad I didn’t complete the application. If and when the “melt-down” happens, I don’t think this is the kind of set-up I’d want to be in. Been there/done that in the last crash.

It’s much less liquid than regular mutual funds in an IRA β€” those you can always sell at NAV and receive the funds the next day.

Fundrise does not require regular contributions, that’s just an option.
