However, you might be wondering how you get paid back or earn money from Fundrise.
There's primarily two ways to earn money investing with Fundrise:
We will be exploring both with more detail!
With Fundrise, all the investors pool their money together to purchase real estate within a portfolio.
In particular, Fundrise looks for properties with a high potential of growing in value. This is usually based on the local real estate market that property is located in.
They will also usually make improvements on properties, which can further add to this overall appreciation.
Profits earned from the sale are distributed among investors.
Keep in mind, this money is only earned when a property is eventually sold. That is why Fundrise is considered to be a longer term 5+ year investment.
While most of the money is going to be made from the eventual sale of real estate owned, you can also earn money through rent/interest payments.
Currently, every investment offering from Fundrise pays out dividends on a quarterly basis. However, there are some portfolios that are more focused on growth vs income.
Depending on where you are at in your life financially, you may choose one over the other based on your goals.
Nonetheless, these dividends earned can either be reinvested automatically or paid out directly to your bank account. The benefit to reinvesting is this allows you to earn compound interest.
