About Us

We’re on a mission to revolutionize
real estate investing.

The Fundrise Story

Historically, real estate has proven to be one of the best-performing investment classes.

As real estate investors ourselves, we spent years investing through the traditional approach, only to see much of the profits from those investments eaten up by inefficiency, unnecessary overhead, and middlemen who added little value.

Fed up with the old way of doing things, we started Fundrise with the simple idea to use technology to redefine how people invested in real estate — lowering the costs, improving the quality, and broadening the access.

We faced our fair share of skeptics, including industry professionals who told us that our idea was impossible. Turns out, they were wrong.

After nearly a year of working through audits and multiple filings with the SEC, we launched our first online investment offering in 2012. Then we did it again and again. Eventually, we built an entirely new system, outside the conventional industry, and in doing so eliminated the high costs and poor incentives that had become the status quo.

Today, there are more than 500,000 members of Fundrise, and we’ve invested in nearly $2 billion worth of real estate across the country.

The idea is simple yet powerful. Take a high quality investment class and make it available to anyone through one simple, efficient, and transparent platform. At Fundrise, we put our investors first, period.

Welcome to the future of investing.

What the press is saying

“Fundrise has a history of making it easier for ordinary investors to put money to work.”
“…a new real estate investment trust that allows anyone in the US to easily invest in a real estate portfolio.”
The New York Times
“Until recently, even small-scale real estate projects typically had been the exclusive domain of wealthy investors and private equity firms.”
“What really sets Fundrise apart is that it backs each and every deal itself. The quality hasn’t gone unnoticed: one of Fundrise’s last deals sold out in 20 minutes.”
