For those who like it short and sweet, here ya go: i joined RAD Diversified in June 2021 and now one year later my $1,000 investment is worth $1,400.
There is a lot more to RAD Diversified than that, so if you have the interest and time, you are welcome to read on!
I saw a facebook ad somewhere and it caught my attention. I opted in to a form and had a call with their salesman. He sent me some info and followed up the next day. After a quick rehash of the material, I whipped out my plastic and bought $1,000 worth of shares. These shares are now worth about $1,400. A nice 40% increase in value. The only issue I have is that you never want to sell your shares because you know they will be worth more later. I think that why the next logical step with them is Diamond 5, where you learn to acquire and flip/rent properties for ongoing profits. More on that later.
Dutch (CEO) is as real as they get an real estate is the most real investment there is (besides perhaps gold). I really don’t get their YouTube advertising angle though. Person after person is saying “I’ve never lost money with RAD diversified”… ok, meanwhile, other people are saying “let me step out of my Lambhorgini and walk inside to my computer and show you some screenshots of how much money I’ve made… after my hot blonde wife fixes me a latte”… I mean we are interested in RAD to thrive not just to not lose money. Of course, it makes sense that you wouldn’t lose money with RAD: we are dealing with real estate and Dutch was savvy enough to make it through the years of 2020 and 2021 turning a solid profit.
They Always Get Back to Me
Thought it may take awhile, they are committed to getting back to you and they’ve never failed to do so. Not only that, but Dutch fields questions on their regular Zoom meetings.
It’s Hands Off
A marketing mastermind once told me: “You make more money with your brain than with your hands.” This is something i agree with. Anytime I can simply drop cash on something and come out in profit, I’m on it. Anytime I have to roll up my sleeves, put on knee pads or otherwise put effort into collecting dollars, forget it.
To call it “diversified” is accurate – many investment vehicles exist
An article by alts gives a thorough executive overview of the investment vehicles available within RAD. I speak of the programs that I know about by direct conversation with RAD. I am what they call a non-accredited investor. Just an average dude who had some bread laying around and slapped it in their REIT. Another program available to me is Diamond 5. This is where you learn the nuts and bots of locating and acquiring profitable deals. It does involve work but it eventually means you dont have to work for someone else. You will have to contact RAD for more details about getting started and about their accredited investor options.
I’m Glad i found it
i’m really happy i took the leap of faith. i’ve always liked real estate and Dutch is a self-proclaimed real estate dog. He eats, sleeps, and breathes real estate. You can feel it on his live webinars. That’s the type of person I want to be around.
I have a bit of trouble understanding what the 50k option (Diamond 5) would do for me
The exact details of the Diamond 5 program – who is in it, what they are doing on a daily basis, what you learn and how much ROI on the 50k they have seen. And of course, where does the 50k go?
For most people, the main problem with real estate is getting funding – lenders want 20% of the property value up front. With my new lending sources, that amount of capital becomes reasonable.
But again, some good answers to some commonsense questions on Diamond 5 are in order. Maybe I will hop on the next monthly call and ask.
There are 2 ways to generate passive income: having a network of people work for you and having capital working for you. RAD diversified is an appealing vehicle to put capital to work for you. They took the pains to make their REIT SEC-conformant. They acquired properties to yield returns that are far better than I’ve seen reported from Fundrise or other similar services. And they work hard on transparency by having a regular meeting.
I would say that RAD is recommended for the person that wants to grow a little capital and perhaps also grow their knowledge of real estate investing.
