Why Make a Crowdfunding Investment in Commercial Real Estate?
"Real estate is an imperishable asset, ever increasing in value. It is the most solid security that human ingenuity has devised. It is the basis of all security and about the only indestructible security."
-Russell Sage, American Financier and Politician
An Intelligent Way To Diversify Your Portfolio
Most individual investors invest almost exclusively in stocks and bonds. Most institutional investors put a sizable portion of their funds-sometimes 15-20% - into real estate and other alternative investment classes for benefits you may not be able to find elsewhere:
- A hedge against inflation-rents and property values typically increase as consumer prices rise
- Tax advantages such as mortgage interest write-offs and depreciation deductions
- Increased buying power and potential returns thanks to leverage fueled by debt (purchase loans)
- Real estate investments may rise in value at maturity, unlike bonds and other fixed income
- Higher annual dividends. According to Real Capital Analytics the average cap rate for all property types in the United States in 2013 was 6.73%. The average dividend yield for S&P 500 was 1.9%
