Technically, we did not beat the stock market alone. However, due to a goal of financial maturity for 2018, we took a risk and made out very well by end of 2018!
First off, we are not getting any younger. My husband and I will be knocking at retirement age before we know it. In 2018, I wanted to learn about financial saving options that were not too risky and let me sort of ‘set it and forget it’. That is when I did my research and discovered Fundrise.
Since I am no financial expert (but I do create a heck of household budget), the best way I can describe Fundrise is it is an organization that allows you to invest in private market real estate. This company develops a portfolio of various properties to invest in. They send you email updates about properties that they include within your portfolio. There are properties all around the United States that this company includes within your portfolio.
I started with Fundrise in early 2018. They payout returns quarterly. I currently have it reinvested. However, you are more than welcome to have the money sent directly to you. By the end of 2018, I was impressed to learn that Fundrise had outperformed the overall stock market by 14%. As with any investment, there are risks. I do recognize that. However, if anyone is looking for an affordable investment option where you can ‘set it and forget it’, I recommend Fundrise.
I do realize any investment it is not as simple as ‘set it and forget it’. Because it is wise to monitor any investment you may have. This includes something as simple as your 401k. Even if it is handled through your employer, every quarter or so, I recommend reviewing what is happening with your money. I learned that as I learned more about financial maturity and retirement.
I have not stopped learning about financial maturity. I am striving to embark on other options that will help our money grow. Saving for a comfortable retirement.
For more details, I invite you to try Fundrise for yourself! In Ecclesiastes, it includes wise advice concerning handling your money. The phrase ‘don’t put your eggs all in one basket’ is the overall message. Seek other ways to create positive cash flow even with the money you earn now. It is time to become better stewards of our money and one way is to save wisely.
What financial goals do you have for 2019? Let me hear from you. I am currently finishing reading ‘I’m Rich Beyond My Wildest Dreams’. Not at all what I expected so I am glad I read it! It truly offered some great advice that aligned with my Christian beliefs. Are you planning to read some books to grow in your financial knowledge? Where you do need help with becoming a better steward over your finances? Reply below.
