- Real Estate
Fund That Flip operates as something akin to a hard-money lender, offering developers short-term loans for residential rehab (fix-and-flip) projects, then selling the loans fractionally to investors. They stand out for offering detailed info on prior loans, and their “Residential Bridge Note Fund” is worth a close look for easy diversification across multiple loans.

FarmTogether is a real estate investing platform offering income-producing shares in US farmland. Investors earn money two ways: quarterly cash rent payments from farmers plus a return on the long-term appreciation of the land when it’s sold. The FarmTogether website is outstanding, and their investor education material is extensive and easy to find. Minimums are high and selection is limited, but may be worth a look for investors interested in agricultural and farmland as an asset class.
"FarmTogether is a marketplace for farmland investing. We are here to connect investors who want to invest in farmland with institutional quality US farmland investments."
- Consumer Loans
BlockFi offers an accessible way to invest in loans backed by cryptocurrency. Although they use some of the same language as a traditional interest-bearing bank account, they are not a bank and funds are not FDIC insured. Adventurous investors comfortable with the cryptocurrency ecosystem may find this a compelling place to park some money, but be sure to fully understand the risks beforehand. New account holders can receive up to $250 in free Bitcoin.
"With BlockFi, you can use cryptocurrency to earn interest at up to 8.6% APY, borrow cash, and trade currencies."
