Yes. As we cannot pay fractional cents, we require Tellus Boost accounts to maintain a $200 minimum balance to accrue daily interest.
Interest is paid and compounded daily at 12AM PST. The funds are automatically added to your cash account.
We chose to use private insurance to protect real estate investments and interest so that we can insure you up to $1,000,000. In the event of a default on an underlying loan, our insurance steps in to continue to pay you your interest rate while we foreclose and liquidate the underlying asset.
If the underlying asset is worth less than the loan, the insurance makes up for the difference, thus allowing users to recoup all their funds while still getting paid interest throughout the process. Your cash is always secure.
Tellus Boost requires a minimum balance of $200. Investments made through Tellus Invest also require a $200 minimum investment. However, there is no minimum balance requirement for your Tellus Cash.
There are no fees for opening or holding any cash accounts or direct investments with Tellus - what you see is what you get! That’s the way saving and investing should be. Our property management system is free for landlords and tenants, with the exception of standard credit card fees. Listings, screenings, and even ACH rent collections are free for all users.
