More about AcreTrader:
AcreTrader is a real estate investing platform that makes it easy to buy shares of farmland and earn passive income, starting with as little as $1,000.
United States farmland has historically outperformed most asset classes and other forms of real estate. Unfortunately, buying and maintaining farmland directly is extremely difficult. The few investment options that are available typically charge high fees, provide limited liquidity, and offer no choice over portfolio composition.
Through a proprietary online investment platform that uses some aspects of crowdfunding, AcreTrader aims to provide transparency, security, and liquidity to people wanting to invest in farmland. Additionally, AcreTrader removes the headaches traditionally associated with land ownership by handling all aspects of administration and property management, from insurance and accounting to working with local farmers and improving soil sustainability.
