Investment Alternatives in Real Estate

Real estate attracts a growing number of investors looking for a tangible investment which generates steady returns.

This asset class is an alternative to saving accounts, with zero or negative interest rates, and the uncertainties in the financial markets.

Financial resources

20% of the property’s value in equity.

Sharp expertise

Significant market knowledge and an extensive network.

Time

The search for the assessment and the management of a real estate property can be time consuming and costly.

So far, there were mainly two ways to invest in real estate:

1 Direct investment through the acquisition and the rental of an apartment in condominium ownership (PPE)
2 Indirect investment through the acquisition of shares of a real estate fund.

There is now a third alternative for investing in real estate that combines the benefits of the two models: real estate crowdinvesting.
