It’s also a popular way to help diversify your portfolio to avoid relying too heavily on the ebbs and flows of Wall Street.-Investing
But building a successful real estate portfolio has traditionally required six- or seven-figure investments just to get rolling. And becoming a landlord and dealing with the property management of rental units is its own headache — that is, until now.
A company called CrowdStreet lets you invest in commercial real estate properties nationwide without having to invest millions or play landlord. With around $25,000, you can start investing in real estate projects and funds today if you’re an accredited investor.
Real estate investing supported by crowdfunding
Investing with CrowdStreet is similar to buying stocks, in that you have the freedom to select the individual deals that make sense for you. But instead of funding a company, your investment goes toward owning a percentage of a physical real estate property through crowdfunding.
Using the platform, you can invest directly in individual properties, put your money in diversified funds or opt for a professionally managed portfolio of real estate investments. Whatever you choose, you’ll be able to build a diverse portfolio of assets that would usually only be available to major real estate players. Depending on the business plan of the deal, you could potentially earn regular distributions plus profit when the property eventually sells.
How much could you make? Based on its 76 realized deals since 2014, CrowdStreet’s average rate of return is 18.6% with fees factored in. To put that into perspective, the S&P 500 index has an average annual return of around 10%.
As always, investing involves the risk of total loss and past performance is not indicative of future performance.
Lower fees, multiple ways to invest
CrowdStreet doesn’t charge investors a fee to register for their platform or to make investments in the individual deals and funds offered by their sponsors.
Some sponsors (the companies putting forward the deals) charge variable fees to investors in those deals. These are clearly disclosed on the offering detail page and associated deal documents, so be sure to review before investing in a deal.
CrowdStreet also offers investment products and services through their entity, CrowdStreet Advisors. There is a fee charged on these services and investment products, generally ranging from 0.5% to 2.5% of invested capital on an annual basis.
Compared with other forms of real estate crowdfunding, CrowdStreet offers a wide range of options and autonomy for investors.
CrowdStreet’s easy-to-navigate Marketplace allows you to filter their available deals by the attributes that matter to you. Choose individual projects to back and invest through a variety of structures, including debt, equity, funds and portfolios.
CrowdStreet also offers a wide selection of property types for investors, giving you the opportunity to help diversify your portfolio and the potential to hedge against volatility in the market.
