Is anyone using Fundrise and/or Roofstock to invest in Real Estate?

Hi All,

     Looking to diversify my investments a bit more in the future. I heard about Fundrise and Roofstock on a podcast and both seem feasible as options (Fundrise if you want to spread your risk over multiple properties, Roofstock if you want to buy individual properties). What I like about Roofstock is that you can buy places in other states and get a list of vetted (I hope) management companies. Does anyone have experience with either service? What has your experience been like? Likes and dislikes?

Should I be considering other options when thinking about investing in real estate?

I know it takes a lot of time to find a good deal and industry experience comes in handy.

Thank you in advance!

I use Concreit as a glorified high yield savings account.  Wish the pref was higher than ~5.5% but I've had no issues thus far.

Not too high, not too low

Interesting - I've never heard of Concreit before. It does seem fairly similar to Fundrise. How liquid is your investment?

That return is good for money be saved up for a house but hopefully it can be withdrawn when you need it.

They have a withdrawal program that isn't immediate but it is available.  The catch is they take 20% of gains in the event of a liquidation occurring less than a year from initial investment (short-term).  Annual fee is 1% of AUM I believe
