b&b133 How to invest in real estate without having to buy a house (Fundrise explains REIT’s)

Is there a way to invest in real estate without having to buy a house? On this week’s show, we invited Kendall Davis, who manages Investments at Fundrise, a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) company, to discuss the benefits, potential rewards, and main risks to consider when investing in a REIT so you can decide if it makes sense for your portfolio.

A REIT is a Trust that purchases multiple real estate properties, usually multi-family homes or big commercial buildings, and pools together investors’ funds to make the investment. It’s a way to invest in real estate without having to deal with the headache of being a landlord.

Kendall walks us through the main things to look out for when researching a REIT, the potential returns, and the main drawbacks of investing in such a product.
