(IRR) Internal Rate of Return = The annual compounded rate of return that investors expect to receive from a project in relation to its planned investment term. To calculate the IRR of a real estate project investors assess the annual income + the income generated when selling the project divided by the entire investment term of the project. IRR is used by investors to compare “apples to apples” across different investment projects.

Going to repeat ourselves. When you buy a house 10-20% of your investment is lost on administration fees. Investing in debt and equity through InvestaCrowd can mean you get to keep this extra 10-20% = WIN.
