Diversify your portfolio with a
commercial real estate fund


Easy diversification with one investment

Invest in professionally managed, institutional-quality real estate funds.

One of the simplest ways to build a diversified real estate portfolio is by investing in a fund. Instead of manually researching and selecting individual properties on your own, funds are managed by professionals that do the work for you.

CrowdStreet gives you access to multiple types of funds:

CrowdStreet funds are constructed and managed by our in-house team of real estate professionals. They come in various flavors and focus on providing you with access to multiple properties based on a pre-defined investment strategy. These strategies can range from targeting investments in a specific region or property type, to focusing on even broader diversification across investment themes, sponsors, sectors, and multiple regions.

With CrowdStreet funds, you benefit from our relationships with hundreds of sponsors across the U.S., which allows us to add deals to the funds that are not always available on the Marketplace.

Single-sponsor funds are led by one real estate firm (or sponsor) and typically focus on the firm’s specialty, such as a particular region or specific property type. Investing in these funds means you’ll get to leverage that sponsor’s expertise and, as they add properties to the fund over time, build a portfolio that is diversified across multiple projects. 

All sponsor-backed funds undergo the same, objective review process as any individual deal on the Marketplace.

Why invest in a real estate fund?

Faster diversification

Spend less time and effort building your portfolio. Funds can provide exposure to multiple assets, and sometimes even multiple sponsors, with a single investment. It’s a simpler way to build a more diversified real estate portfolio and can help manage overall risk.

Strategic approach

Fund managers don’t typically find all of their deals ahead of time, so committed capital can be used strategically to invest in great opportunities as they come up, which can be especially powerful tool in turbulent markets.

Lower per-deal investment

Most single-property deals require a $25,000 minimum investment. By investing in a fund, you invest in multiple projects, potentially significantly lowering your average investment per property.
