How does Dave make money online?
It looks like Dave makes money online in various ways, but for the purposes of this profile I’m just focusing on the money he’s earned investing with the online real estate investment platform Fundrise.
“With Fundrise, you can invest in a low-cost, diversified portfolio of institutional-quality real estate. We combine state-of-the-art technology with in-house expertise to reduce fees and maximize your long-term return potential.” – fundrise.com
In other words, the platform lets you invest as little as $500 in real estate projects. Your money is combined with money invested by other users of the platform, and used to buy real estate. You then earn a return on your investment if the projects increase in value.
