3. Fill in identifying information


As of now, we need to make sure our investors are accredited before investing with us. According to the SEC, in the U.S, an accredited investor is a person with an annual income exceeding $200,000 ($300,000 for joint income) for the last two years with the expectation of earning the same or a higher income in the current year.

Click “Account” at the top right. Then, hit the “Settings” icon. Scroll to the bottom of the page to “Investment Profile.” Choose a selection from the drop down menu under “Accreditation.” To prove this, simply submit a W2 tax form to demonstrate income. The option to submit this will pop up once you begin to purchase shares. Unsure if you’re accredited? Submit the form and a team member can contact you to discuss.

Bank Account

Click on “Funds” on the navigation bar. Next, hit “Add Account,” which will take you to add your bank details. We use Plaid in order to ensure the safety of our customers. Plaid is used by other popular investing platforms like Robinhood and Acorns.

4. Request Shares

Head back over to Marketplace to pick your first property! Once you’re there, click your property, then the button that says “Invest.” Select the amount of shares you’d like to invest with, review and hit “place order”! The money will be transferred from your bank account into your chosen amount and prices of shares.

5. Watch your order be fulfilled!

Congratulations, you’re now a shareholder! Watch the cash distributions roll in each month on the 5th of the month

We want you to feel as comfortable as possible and encourage you to build up your investment portfolio. If you have any questions or even an inkling of doubt, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team!
