No. REITs are companies that own, operate, or finance real estate investments. REIT investors typically have no control over the investments made by the REIT managers.
CrowdStreet gives investors direct access to real estate investments by selecting the markets, locations and properties they prefer. Moreover, we believe there are segments of the real estate investment market that are generally too small for REITs to address efficiently. This provides an opportunity for small and medium size real estate companies to seek funding via the CrowdStreet platform.
