Groundfloor vs. Fundrise:  Real Estate Crowdfunding Review

In case you haven’t heard, crowdfunded  real estate is here to stay. And there are so many options out there it can be hard to narrow down your choices.

There are two platforms I really like and have personally invested in, so I wanted to bring you the inside scoop on Groundfloor vs. Fundrise.


With Groundfloor, you choose individual projects to invest in and how much money you want to contribute to each.  


Fundrise makes it clear up front that you should not invest money you think you might need in the next 3-5 years, and there are penalties for withdrawing funds within the first 5 years.  

What Is Crowdfunded Real Estate?

Real estate crowdfunding is not a new concept. It’s been around in some form for decades, particularly for high-net worth individuals with the right connections.

Groundfloor Overview

They are one of the largest platforms available to  non-accredited investors, and have the lowest investment minimum I’ve seen anywhere at only $10. 

How Does Groundfloor Work?

Groundfloor offers crowdfunded investments in loans made on individual properties.  

What is the Minimum Investment?

Each loan you invest in also has a minimum investment of $10. So if you want to diversify your investment across 5 different loans, you would need $50 ($10 per loan).

How Much Can I Earn with Groundfloor?

While real estate obviously has risk and no returns are guaranteed, Groundfloor has published that their average investment return in the past has been 10%.
