Investment Options

I was curious if anyone has experience or heard of Fundrise? I came upon them by chance and was intrigued by the possibilties, but I don't like signing up for things blindly in order to find out the inner workings of a program. The idea of Real estate Investing without actually buying the whole building was interesting.

 

However, over the years I have learned to be cautious of seemingly to good to be true offers, scams etc.

Re: Investment Options

Avoid it.  If you don't want to or can't own investment properties directly look into REITs instead.  STAG, O, LAND, etc. I have far more faith in them then I do in something like fundrise.

I have heardof a lot of names over the years ..but never heard of this one!

Probably some good advice upthread about "steering clear of" ..
