Real Estate Certificate of Deposit

A certificate of deposit in which the provider uses the proceeds to purchase a piece of real estate. The CD holder is then entitled to receive rental payments and/or capital appreciation on the value of the property in addition to the interest rate to which he/she otherwise receives. A real estate CD therefore carries a lower interest rate than other CDs, but provides the possibility of a higher return.
