What is Avestor?

Avestor is a software and services company with a mission to automate & simplify the complex world of commercial real estate investing. We partner with real estate sponsors to provide them an end to end solution to build customizable real estate funds for their investors. Investors can come to Avestor's website to see the funds currently on our platform. Investors are able to build diversified real estate portfolsio across different cities/states, property types and time horizons earning passive income and capital appreciation.

What is the benefit of investing in real estate?

The real estate market has historically performed independent of the stock market. Investing in real estate helps diversify your overall portfolio, provide passive income and opportunities for long-term appreciation.

How does Avestor work?

1) Accredited investors join a private fund offered by Avestor or through one of our partners. 2) Investors build their portfolio by selecting slices of available investments. 3) For each investment, Avestor tracks your pro-rata share of both percentage and time in each deal and distributes earnings to you based on that pro-rata share. Investors have the option to have their earnings and principal re-invested in new deals.

How are the funds on Avestor different than a REIT?

Our platform allocates your capital into investments based on the direction you give the fund manager. This results in every investor having a customized portfolio. REITs cannot be customized by an investor to meet their personal investment goals. Additionally, REITs distribute all earnings through dividends while limited partnerships allows pass through profits/losses and appreciation. Consult your tax or investment advisor to understand the tax advantages of our model.

How is Avestor different than other real estate platforms?

Avestor is unique in numerous ways from other real estate platforms. 1) Most platforms focus on individual deals.
