Investing can be an exciting and profitable journey. Back in June of 2018, I decided to dip my toes into the world of real estate investing by becoming a Fundrise investor. Today, I want to share my experience and the results I've achieved with a $5,000 investment.

A Journey of Discovery

When Fundrise reached out to me and invited me to become an affiliate, it piqued my interest. I saw this as an opportunity to test out the platform and see how it performed. With a minimum investment of $10 for the Starter Portfolio or $1,000 for the advanced portfolios, I decided to go with the Balanced Investing Plan in the Core Portfolio.

The Balanced Investing Plan offered a blend of growth and income-oriented investments, which aligned with my investment goals. I was ready to see how my money would grow.

The Initial Investment

To get started, I made my first $1,000 investment in July 2018. It was like dipping my toe into uncharted waters, eager to see how this investment would pan out. And I wasn't disappointed.

On October 10th, 2018, I received my first dividend of $10.16, which I reinvested to take advantage of compound interest. This reinvestment strategy allowed my money to work harder for me.

Upscaling the Investment

After six months of witnessing the potential of Fundrise, I decided to increase my investment to $5,000 in April 2019. With a larger investment, my dividends became more substantial. Here's a breakdown of the dividends I received:

  • Q2 2019: $54.37
  • Q3 2019: $60.05
  • Q4 2019: $82.96

These dividends were automatically reinvested back into my Fundrise portfolio, allowing my money to grow even more.

Impressive Returns

Now, the burning question: how much money have I made from investing in Fundrise? Well, with a total investment of $6,000, I've earned a remarkable $373.27 in returns. It's important to note that my investment initially started with just $1,000.

Let's take a closer look at the returns I've enjoyed based on the years I've been invested:

  • 2018: I earned a return of 4.3% or $43.89.
  • 2019: I earned a return of 7.7% or $311.54.
  • 2020: I earned a return of 3.9% or $741.69.

These returns, accounting for the 1% fee Fundrise collects, speak to the effectiveness of the platform and the potential it holds for investors.

Final Thoughts on Fundrise

As an investor, I couldn't be happier with the returns I've achieved through Fundrise. Although I'm still relatively new to crowdfunded real estate investing, my experience over the last year and a half has been more than satisfactory. It has given me the confidence to make a sizable investment in this platform.

It's essential to understand that real estate investments generally require a longer-term commitment, and Fundrise is no exception. According to their website, investors should have a minimum time horizon of five years. If you're seeking a short-term investment, this may not be the right fit for you.

Additionally, it's crucial to note that liquidity is not guaranteed. Fundrise offers quarterly redemption periods, but cashing out may not be immediately available due to the nature of real estate investments. However, the potential growth and returns make it an attractive long-term investment option.
