Investors without a real estate background, often find the learning curve for investing in real estate crowdfunding daunting.
And even experienced investors have problems evaluating the investments on many websites. The payout scheme, fees sometimes even the expected term, are often not plainly disclosed. So figuring out a very basic item, such as your projected cash flow, requires wading through pages of legalese and spreadsheets.
I’ve always thought there had to be a better way. And I was pleased to discover that Acquire Real Estate has come up with one. Their new cash flow calculator makes this a breeze. In a glance you can see the year-by-year projected return, minus all fees, and instantly have a feel for what the investment offers you.
The operation is simple. Simply slide the investment amount to what you are considerring and you'll instantly see your returns, fees, and financial information broken down on a yearly basis. No more guess work or piecing together of information.
So the days of obscure information are numbered. Kudos to Acquire, for solving an industrywide problem.
