The ever-increasing home prices, interest rates, and strict lending policies discourage many people from investing in real estate. But it doesn’t have to be so. Daniel’s Roots Community Fund introduces a simple way to become a real estate investor.
It has a unique investment model that allows investors to invest in property while living in it. The Fund uses the slogan, ‘Live In It Like You Own It, which is literal in every sense. Rent one of its properties and invest in it. Here’s more about Investing with Roots Fund.
But… before you read what I have to say about Invest With Roots, imagine if you could invest in DIGITAL properties. I’m talking about investing in properties that exist ONLINE only (not in the physical world). You may not know this, but properties like this have no property taxes, no repair costs, no homeowners insurance, and the profits can be MUCH higher: Digital Real Estate Video Here.
Here’s a video of my daughter’s business using this :
The course my daughter used above is much better than the Invest With Roots course. But since you are here to learn about Invest With Roots, lets get back to our review of that:
Who is Daniel Dorman? The Brains Behind Invest with Roots
Daniel Dorman is the founder and CEO of Invest with Roots Fund. His objective is to change the one-sided narrative between landlords and tenants by creating a platform that allows tenants to become investors.
As a result, he designed Roots, an impact investment opportunity that enables residents to build wealth with minimal risk. Daniel projects that each resident is likely to make $2100 in savings in the first year which will increase to $7500-$10,000 in the next five years. So far, Invest with Roots Fund has a value of $10.5 million.
What is Invest with Roots Fund
Invest with Roots is a program that allows tenants to invest in the property they live in with as little as $100. This means investors can build a portfolio at their pace. Daniel and other investors have invested millions of dollars in Roots Community Fund, which has grown by 16% over the last year.
The fund is classified as a privately held Real Estate Investment Trust registered with the SEC. Roots is trademarked as a Live in It Like You Own It program, the first of its kind. Investing in the fund is pretty simple:
- Fill out an investor form and your tax information
- Determine the amount you want to invest
- Sign the paperwork (virtually)
- Provide your bank account details to link it to the fund
The premise is to allow residents living in Roots Community properties to become partners and build wealth alongside other investors in the fund. This means the residents own while renting from the first day they move into the property.
If they pay rent on time and take care of the property, they’re entitled to a rebate while investing alongside Daniel and other investors.Once you start investing in the fund, Roots uses that capital to buy and manage other properties. The fund managers find individuals who can live in them, and through its Live In It, Like You Own It program, you can invest alongside them.
Why Join Invest with Roots Fund?
Invest with Roots has many benefits:
Like any other investment fund, you wonder if your money is at risk after investing. With the program your deposit doesn’t attract any risks even when the fund isn’t performing well. Also, any reduction in investment during your lease period is only deducted from your account after moving out.
Can Withdraw Funds at Any Time
Invest with Roots Fund allows investors to withdraw 50% of the invested amount every year (exclusive of the initial deposit). For example, if you invested $1500 and earned $1000 to make $2500, you can sell $500 worth of units in a year.
Ability to Track Your Investment
Invest with Roots has an online portal that allows you to track your investment anytime. You also get quarterly reports via email.
What is the Cost of Joining Invest with Roots Fund?
You can invest in the program with as little as $100. However, since the premise is to become an investor, Roots residents must invest their rental deposit to earn rental rebates and add $600-$1200 annually to grow their wealth.
What are Others Saying about Invest with Roots Fund? Customer Reviews
You may be wondering if some residents have invested in Roots and successfully built a property portfolio. I set out to find out and couldn’t find any customer reviews on third-party sites like Better Business Bureau, Trustpilot, or Reddit.
Should You Join Invest with Roots Fund? My Verdict
Invest with Roots Fund is an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to become a real estate investor. Being able to invest in a fund with as little as $100 with minimal risk, rent and invest in the property you live in is mind-blowing. However, the fact that I couldn’t find any customer reviews on third-party sites is alarming. Although the company is relatively young (only two years old), I’d recommend researching before investing your money.
