WHY REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT?
Build Wealth With Cash-Flowing Real Estate Investment
In the past, multi-family real estate investments were limited to only people who could afford to buy and manage properties all on their own. That, or they had the money and connections for crazy real estate deals. The unique benefits that multi-family real estate investment offers were limited to only a select few. Now, with real estate crowdfunding you can invest in real estate at a lower barrier of entry without any of the management hassle.
How Gratūs Funds Works:
Why Multi-Family Real Estate Investment?
Here Are Some Of The Benefits Investors See In Multi-Family Real Estate Deals.
- Enhancing returns: According to NCREIF multifamily index, multifamily has often matched or exceeded average returns in the S&P 500 on an unleveraged basis.
- Producing Passive Income: Multifamily investments often generate meaningful and predictable income.
- Lowering Correlation to Public Markets: As a private real estate investment whose value is derived from its net operating income, the value is less subject to the whims of the public markets.’
- Reducing Volatility: Because housing is a basic human need, multifamily housing has historically shown resilience during times of economic uncertainty.
- Hedging Against Inflation: When central banks expand the money supply and cause inflation, real estate investments are often one of the first assets to rise alongside it.
- Accessing Tax Benefits: Owners of real estate have historically been able to access unique tax treatment.
- Reducing Dependency on a Single Tenant: Having multiple tenants mitigates the risk posed by vacancies.
Why a Direct-Owned Real Estate Crowdfund?
Hunting for a home run investment can be exciting, but risky. By diversifying across multiple markets, properties, and units, our real estate crowdfund structure aims to reduce the risk of striking out. This structure maintains tremendous upside potential, but also may limit the downside exposure of any individual real estate deal.
When multiple investors partner together you can gain access to institutional quality investment opportunities and greater efficiencies of scale. A real estate crowdfund structure between $50-150MM is big enough to take full advantage of this scale, while also being small enough to move nimbly.
A True Passive Investment
A real estate crowdfunding model allows investors to own real estate that is professionally analyzed, acquired, and managed to a specific strategy. This creates the margin for you to invest your energy in what matters most while generating passive income.
Flow-Through Tax Treatment
Direct-owned real estate crowdfunds are taxed as flow-through entities. This means that excess depreciation and other tax benefits flow through to you personally before your final tax is assessed. This provides the opportunity to potentially offset income from other sources and reduce your net tax burden.
No Loan Guarantees
Many private investment opportunities require investors to sign loan documents to guarantee liability for losses above and beyond their money invested. In a limited partnership real estate crowdfund structure, all investors are limited in liability only to their investment.

My real estate investment has been easier to handle because it’s an asset class that seems less impacted by the crazy world we live in than the stock market.
