The Millionacres Mission

Millionacres exists to make you smarter, happier, and richer through real estate investing.

Real estate investing is one of the most reliable and accessible ways to grow your wealth, but too many individuals are paralyzed by its perceived complexity. Millionacres demystifies real estate investing with classically Foolish advice.

We educate and empower investors to make great decisions and achieve success -- from those just starting out to seasoned pros with decades of experience.

It's important to us that we provide a comprehensive resource that helps investors of all kinds become more successful with real estate. There's no one-size-fits-all solution. That's why you'll find content on REITs, rental properties, fix-and-flips, financing, commercial crowdfunding, and more on Millionacres.com.

To that end, we stand by these five points:

  1. All of the content on Millionacres.com is made available for free.
  2. Our writers and editors are experts in real estate investing and writing. They have decades of experience in forms of real estate from residential and commercial investing to REITs and other real estate stocks. Our editorial opinions are ours alone and aren’t inspired, endorsed, or sponsored by any advertiser.
  3. We're committed to clear, jargon-free explanations of key concepts. Real estate is complicated enough without needlessly complex terminology.
  4. We'll often rate and review different tools or products we believe are important to real estate investors. See our rating methodology for Crowdfunding portals here.
  5. We provide individual recommendations on commercial real estate crowdfunded opportunities, REITs, and equities through our premium service, Mogul. Learn more about joining Mogul here.
