Why Real Estate
WHY COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE
We’re going to let you in on a little secret. Hedge funds, trust funds, pension funds, and others with lots of cash all have one investment that most of us, non-accredited investors, don’t -- CRE. Okay, that was annoying of us to tease you with the initials and not the actual name of the investment.
Commercial Real Estate (CRE). Why? It’s one of the best long term-investments and has consistently outperformed all other asset categories. It’s more stable, less volatile, and has recurring revenue from rents paid to the property owner. Okay, we know what you’re thinking—but I can’t buy a large commercial building. Don’t worry. That's where BuildingBits comes in. We are the world's first commercial real estate platform that allows anyone to purchase an economic interest in an institutional-grade commercial property for as little as $500.
Before recent regulatory changes that came about as part of Obama's JOBS Act, you could only buy into a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT). A REIT is a pooled investment vehicle created for the purpose of acquiring and managing real estate properties. However, unfortunately, with a REIT you are buying a small piece of a portfolio of properties with multiple layers of hidden fees, limited transparency and no ability to choose the specific property that you’ll be investing in.
THE FUTURE OF COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE
This is your opportunity to buy commercial real estate, maintain control over your choice of property and reap consistent recurring monthly profit and long-term participation in the upside. One day everyone will buy commercial property this way. And that day is…TODAY. Who knew it could be so simple to receive rent checks instead of paying them?
IT ALL STARTS WITH A BIT
Just as any journey begins with the first step, your path to becoming a real estate magnate begins with the purchase of your first BIT. That’s what we call our fractional ownership share of a Limited Liability Company (LLC) that owns the specific Property you selected on the BuildingBITS platform.
It’s so easy. You just browse through our catalog of investment properties. When you find one you like (be it your favorite phone company, the apartment down the street from your house, or the Xfinity that you walk by on your way to work) you purchase your BITs with as little as $500. But don’t take our word for it, go find your favorite building right now.
