fundrise, real estate investing

My wife and I had a long discussion in early February, I believe February 3rd was the date.  This was after the stock market surged through the first month of January.  We could not find an undervalued dividend stock that fit perfectly in our portfolios.  Furthermore, we had quite the position in the equity market.  On the other hand, this is not specifically a bad position, but it was truly weighing on my mind for quite some time.
