Unfortunately, RealtyShares is no longer accepting new investors on their platform. I suggest taking a look at Fundrise, the pioneer in eREITs and a platform for non-accredited investors. They are also currently working on an Opportunity Fund to take advantage of tax-efficient Opportunity Zones. Fundrise was founded in 2012 and is open to all investors – accredited and non-accredited alike.
If you are an accredited investor, take a look at RealtyMogul. They operate at a smaller scale, but have more stringent underwriting in my opinion. They were founded in 2012 and are focused on long-term profitability. I expect them to buy RealtyShares’ assets and provide a seamless transition for platform investors like myself.

In 2021, Fundrise returned 9.11% net of fees, a significant 14% outperformance over the Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF, and a 15% outperformance versus the Vanguard Real Estate ETF.
Fundrise also outperformed the S&P 500 index in 2021, which was down 6.4%. All-in, Fundrise had a banner year, and they’ve once again shown the power of their platform as they carefully vet only the best deals with rigorous underwriting standards for investors to consider.
Take a look at their 5-year net returns comparison below.
I am continuously impressed with Fundrise’s forward-thinking ways. My only wish is that they open up a satellite office in San Francisco so we can go get a beer and brainstorm about the future of real estate even further.
