Our team of real estate experts work for you.

Every investment is examined from every angle.

Fundrise reviews thousands of investment opportunities from all across the country to find the very best. Every investment that we make goes through a rigorous underwriting process including but not limited to these four key areas:


  • Experience and track record
  • Credit and background check
  • Real estate portfolio analysis
  • Organizational structure


  • In-depth schedule and budget
  • Appraisal and cost basis
  • Historical performance
  • Property-level due diligence


  • On-site market review
  • Supply and demand analysis
  • Comparable properties
  • Demographics and employment


  • Return sensitivity
  • Break-even analysis
  • As-is and as-stabilized
  • Sale / refinance stress tests

Fewer than 2% of investments meet our standards.

Quality real estate investments are inherently scarce. Fundrise uses predictive analytics and proprietary due diligence technology to review a large volume of deals while maintaining our standards. Of the 2000+ projects that we reviewed in 2015, fewer than 2% were approved.
