What are y’all’s thoughts/experiences with Fundrise? Don’t have much cash to buy real estate, but the returns they boast seem on par with less work. It’s not liquid so thinking abt 5 yrs for down pmt?

Given the amount of dry powder in the market right now, if a real estate operator/sponsor needs to turn to Fundrise to raise equity, it’s probably not a great deal. Just my two cents.

I bought in for 10k and saw immediate 4% annualized dividends paid monthly.

Risks are the company has never gone through a downturn and you're money is locked in for a long 5 yrs.

I regretted within a month and withdrew lol

Any other more proven REITs or investments you would recommend? I’d like to make more than the 1.5% in my savings while I save for a down pmt.

A few REITS I'm invested in: $O, $BPY/$BPR ($BPY is K1 so mind that), $DEA (love this one), $VICI, and $EPRT.

All have pros and cons but have yielded >5% annualized rtn YoY since 2018.

Possibly a very stupid question but here it goes: just accepted a an exempt position. I’m supposed to be working 40 hours a week and 1650 billable hours a year. Obviously it’ll be more hours during busy season. My question is am I still required to work 40 during non busy season as long as I get my 1650 throughout the year? Is that different from firm to firm?

Long story short I’ve gotten them out of the house but then I was talking to a cousin of the estate and when I said fiancée and who was trying to live there he kind of chuckled and said I’m not even going to go there… Is fiancée code for something ??
