Tracking my experiments with two web-based real estate investing platforms: Groundfloor, which offers “hard money” loans to flippers and landlords, and Fundrise, sort of a REIT that allows investors to select properties individually.
We’ve covered alternatives to REITs funds: dropping them, subbing in SC Value or Utilities ETFs, and choosing individual REITs instead. But what if we think outside of equities to replace REITs? A new generation of fin-tech intermediaries show some promise. How might these work in a RP portfolio?
