I am wondering if using Fundrise, or some service like it, would still allow for depreciation and other tax advantages that owning traditional real estate would give me.  Would I get still get depreciation and the like?  Without the tax advantages, I don't see it as being comparable to traditional real estate ownership, however if you do get most or all of the tax advantages, it may seem like a better proposition when taking account the work of being a landlord.  What do you all think?
