Paying It Forward


How giving back can get you greater returns.

‘Tis the season for giving — giving thanks for our blessings, giving gifts to our loved ones, and giving back to others in need. This last one is especially prominent during the holiday months, as people across the country look to spread some holiday cheer. Giving back doesn’t necessarily have to be confined to your personal life, however. You can pay it forward in your real estate business as well. Here are a few ways to consider giving back with your small business this holiday season.

Pay It Forward To Your Peers

One of the easiest ways to give back to the real estate community is to invest passively in others’ real estate projects! Just as you work hard all year to complete your projects, your peers are also on the grind, and one great way to show you stand with them is to invest in their success. 

With GROUNDFLOOR’s innovative platform, you have the ability to create a custom portfolio of fractionalized real estate investments from around the country. You choose which projects to fund and how much to invest, starting with just $10. And it’s a win for you and your business as well — investing through GROUNDFLOOR is a simple and cost-effective way to diversify your dollars and put them to work earning interest for your (and your small business’s) benefit.

Pay It Forward To Your Community

Not only can GROUNDFLOOR’s passive investing platform aid you in giving back to your peers, it can also help you give back to your community. Our model harnesses the power of the crowd to help real estate entrepreneurs complete rehabilitation projects across the US — while allowing you full control of where your investing dollars go. We currently lend in 30 states, so you can choose the places that mean the most to you.

Pay It Forward To Yourself

One final way you can consider giving back this holiday season is by giving back to yourself. Are you setting your future self up for financial success? If you haven’t done so already, setting up, and regularly contributing to, an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is a great first step in ensuring future financial security. 

With GROUNDFLOOR, you can choose among three different kinds of IRAs: Traditional, Roth, and Simplified Employee Pension (SEP). We work closely with you to ensure everything goes smoothly, and our Customer Success team is a simple phone call or email away should you have any questions. Plus, now through the end of 2020, we’re covering all IRA fees as our own way of paying it forward to our customers. Together, we can ensure you and your small business are on track to succeed as we move into the new year.
