What sets real estate apart from other alternative assets?
More recently, some investors are turning away from typical investments like stocks, ETFs, and mutual funds and are preferring to invest in more alternative investments like crypto, real estate, and startups. But what sets real estate investing apart from other alternative investments is its longevity, popularity, and the fact that it is much less volatile than other alternatives. In fact, our national study revealed that "81% of Americans believe real estate is a good investment". Now with real estate being one of the go-to asset classes, Rocket Dollar is partnering with platforms like Doorvest to offer investors more real estate investment opportunities.
Launched in 2020 and based in San Francisco, Doorvest’s mission is to reduce barriers for average Americans to generate passive income by owning rental properties. Doorvest gets to know a customer and their investment goals before identifying and buying a property on their behalf, manages the renovations and places a resident in it, then sells the property back to the customer. Doorvest also acts as the property manager of the home after it was sold to the customer. The Company has expanded geographic footprints in Houston TX, Dallas TX, Atlanta GA, San Antonio, TX, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, with a track record of over 200 homes sold and under management.
