Real estate Investment Comparison
Wondering whether Fundrise or Landa is a better investment? We put them both to the test to help you compare and decide where to invest your money.
Fundrise is a good hands-off investment option for novice real estate investors, but investors pay for it with very low liquidity, paltry rent dividends, and appreciation gains disconnected from the true value of the properties they help fund.
Makes it easy to invest in real estate with a well designed platform and low entry costs
Their stated fee structure is low, starting at just 1% per year
They've been around since 2010 and has acquired billions worth of real estate
Expected investment time window is at least 5 years
They make a big deal about their low 1% fees. But they've disconnected the value of their REIT shares from the true value of the properties in their portfolio, giving them opportunities to capture returns before they appear in their investor's accounts
Typical returns of 10.70% per year is average compared with returns from other real estate investment options (typically 5-15% in rent yield per year) and the stock market (average 10% per year)
Only pays rent to investors a few times a year - much less often than other real estate investment options. This hurts cash flow and makes it harder to reinvest and access compounding returns
Landa offers a great customer experience, liquidity, and decent returns, but has a worrisome lack of return projections and historical performance data.
Landa's mobile app is easy, intuitive, and delightful.
Investors can get started from just $5.
Landa's secondary marketplace is one of the only in the space, making real liquidity a possibility.
It's very difficult to fully understand what you're buying before you buy into a Landa property, and impossible to understand how Landa properties have performed in aggregate.
Most Landa properties are located in a single U.S. state, making investors vulnerable to market swings.
Landa buys properties outright before selling fractions back to their investors. Investors therefore carry the cost of financing the property.
