Groundfloorville Citizen Profile #2:
Sandy’s interest in real estate investing stems from a desire to diversify her investment portfolio and generate additional income streams. Real estate investing offers the potential for passive income through rental properties, as well as the possibility of long-term appreciation in property values.
One of Sandy’s biggest challenges around real estate investing is her limited financial resources. As a working mother of two, she doesn’t have a significant amount of disposable income to invest in real estate. Additionally, her demanding job limits the amount of time she can dedicate to managing her real estate investments.
Sandy fears she needs more knowledge and experience in the real estate industry to earn consistent returns. She has heard mixed opinions on the best way to manage her disposable income, so she’s looking for a secure and simple platform where she can easily diversify her investments while sharpening her investing skills in a safe environment.
Despite these obstacles , Sandy knows that investing in real estate is a smart, if not stable, investment choice. She is attracted to Groundfloor’s 10-year track record and historical return rates of 10%. While she is interested in developing her own strategies based on geographies and loan grades, she knows that investing via the Investment Wizard and capitalizing on automation is the right move for now.
Sandy decides to invest $10,000 upfront and allocates an additional $100 each month by sacrificing a couple of cups of coffee from the local drive-thru. Excited to have started college funds for her children that will grow as they do, she talks to her kids about the importance of saving money.
