About Us

We’re on a mission to make quality real estate
investments available to everyone.

The Fundrise Story

Historically, real estate has proven to be one of the best-performing investments. As real estate investors ourselves, we spent our early careers building and owning unique properties in Washington, DC.

Yet, too often the profits from those projects ended up mostly in the pockets of our institutional investment partners, who in reality were acting merely as middlemen standing between us and the actual people whose money was being invested.

So, we started Fundrise with a simple idea: give everyone the opportunity to invest directly in high quality real estate, without the middlemen. Our idea definitely had its skeptics. Industry professionals told us that it was impossible. Well, they were wrong.

After nearly a year of working with the Securities and Exchange Commission, we launched our first online offering, ending up with 175 individual investors. Then we did it again and again. Today, there are more than 80,000 members of Fundrise and we’ve invested in nearly $3 billion worth of real estate.

The idea is simple yet powerful. It’s caught on because it’s a good investment strategy. Fundrise offers the first low-fee diversified real estate investment available directly to anyone online. We make the process of investing in the highest quality commercial real estate from around the country simple, efficient, and transparent.

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
“Fundrise is a pioneer in real estate crowdfunding, allowing individuals to directly invest in hotels, apartment buildings and other development projects.”
“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.”
