The Arrived Single Family Rental Fund, a non-traded REIT launched late last year by the real estate investment platform that’s backed by Inc. founder Jeff Bezos, has just added five new rental homes to its portfolio. Arrived is best known for its individual offerings, which allow retail investors to purchase shares of rental properties with as little as $100. The company has funded over 370 such offerings, with a total value of more than $152 million, since 2021.

The company launched the Single Family Rental Fund in the fourth quarter of last year, giving investors the option to instantly diversify their real estate portfolio across multiple properties. Arrived says the fund is designed to be “the REIT of the future,” providing more transparency into every property and wider market coverage than a traditional single-family REIT. Investors can view details on each property in the REIT’s portfolio, including the purchase price, monthly rental income and when the property was added.

The fund operates as a non-traded REIT, meaning its shares aren't listed on a public stock exchange. This reduces volatility and ensures the value of shares is directly tied to the value of the REIT's assets rather than the market sentiment on any given day. After a minimum holding period of six months, investors have the option for liquidity through Arrived's redemption plan. 

The REIT pays dividends monthly, which can either be reinvested into any of Arrived's current offerings or withdrawn into a checking account. The average annualized dividend yield across all single-family rentals in Arrived's portfolio 4.2% as of Q4 2023. This is higher than The Real Estate Select Sector SPDR Fund's (XLRE) 3.37% yield and significantly higher than the 1.3% average yield for the S&P 500. 

The latest properties added to the REIT include two homes in Salt Lake City, Utah, two homes in Fayetteville, Ark., and one in Huntsville, Ala. The homes are currently being marketed for rent with anticipated monthly income ranging from $1,695 to $2,395. The new additions to the portfolio will provide greater diversification for investors. 

Arrived is backed by several notable investors, including Jeff Bezos; Uber Technologies Inc. CEO Dara Khosrowshahi; Zillow co-founder Spencer Rascoff; and Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, who all invested in Arrived’s $37 million seed round in 2021. Bezos later made a subsequent investment in the company’s Series A round in 2022.
