A real estate investment trust (REIT) is a company that owns, and in most cases operates, income-producing real estate. Crowdfunding allows for a group of investors to jointly purchase shares in the REIT. You’ll not only get dividends from the investments (through cash flow by way of rent payments on the property), but you’ll also benefit from any appreciation in the underlying value of the real estate itself.

Instead of investing in a portfolio of Real Estate; crowdfunding individual properties is more selective with each investor choosing exactly which property they would like to invest in.

Fractional ownership is a percentage ownership in an asset. Fractional ownership shares in the asset are sold to individual shareholders who share the benefits of the asset such as usage rights, income sharing, priority access, and reduced rates.

Fractional rentals refers to buying individual shares of income producing rental properties.
