How do I earn a return on my investment?

To the extent returns are generated on any investment, they would be reflected through (i) distributions in the form of dividends, and (ii) potential appreciation in asset value. The timing and amount of an investor’s return is not guaranteed, and past performance is not indicative of future returns. Detailed information about our current offering is available at http://www.streitwise.com/oc.

How often will I receive dividends, and at what rate?

We expect that we will declare and pay dividends on a quarterly basis, and that the dividend rate will be set at a level that we be believe will be consistent and sustainable over time. There can be no assurance as to when, if, and at what level, dividends will be paid as that is a decision our Board of Directors makes each quarter.  You can find more information on our historical dividends on the SEC’s website HERE.

How do I get started today?

The easiest way will be to start the investment process at the Start Investing page. There you will enter in your contact information, bank information, and how many shares you want to purchase.

How will the return on my investment be distributed?

Distributions can be sent by physical check or transferred directly into the bank account you specify in your investor center.

When is the next quarterly distribution to be made?

Subject to change per our public filings, but historically, and current expectations, are that dividends, if and when declared, would be paid on or around the last day of each calendar quarter.

Are you looking for more deals to fund?

Yes, while today the REIT only owns the St. Louis properties, and that concentration is a risk, we are currently actively pursuing additional properties. We do intend on acquiring, over time, a diversified portfolio of quality office properties.

What are the fees?

While the upfront fees of other non-traded REITs can be as high as 10-15% of your initial investment, stREITwise’s upfront expenses are CAPPED at 3%. Furthermore, there are no hidden fees that you don’t even know existing in other online real estate investing platforms, such as acquisition fees, disposition fees, financing fees and incentive fees, all of which impact total returns negatively. Just a 2% annual asset management fee, paid quarterly. Detailed information is available HERE.
