Re:    Dealer Manager Agreement

Ladies and Gentlemen:

This letter confirms and comprises the agreement (this “Agreement”) between Cottonwood Communities, Inc., a Maryland corporation (the “Company”), Cottonwood Communities Management, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Cottonwood Management”) and Orchard Securities, LLC (the “Dealer Manager”), regarding the offering and sale to the public (the “Offering”) by the Company of up to $750,000,000 in common stock of the Company (the “Shares”), pursuant to a primary offering (the “Primary Offering”) and the Company’s distribution reinvestment plan (the “DRP”).
1.Appointment of the Dealer Manager.
1.1    On the basis of the representations, warranties and covenants herein contained, but subject to the terms and conditions herein set forth, the Dealer Manager is hereby appointed and agrees to sell the Shares in the Offering on an “best-efforts” basis during the Offering Period (as defined in Section 1.2 below). The Dealer Manager is authorized to enlist other members of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) acceptable to the Company (the “Selling Group Members”) to sell the Shares.
1.2    It is understood that no sale of the Shares shall be regarded as effective unless and until accepted by the Company. The Company reserves the right in its sole discretion to accept or reject any subscription for the Shares in whole or in part. Subscriptions will be submitted by Dealer Manager and each Selling Group Member to the Company on a subscription agreement in the form filed as an appendix to the Prospectus (“Subscription Agreement”). The Company shall have a period of 30 days after receipt of the Subscription Agreement to accept or reject the Subscription Agreement. Any proposed subscription for the Shares not accepted within such 30 day period shall be deemed rejected. The “Offering Period” shall mean that period during which Shares may be offered for sale, commencing on the Effective Date of the Registration Statement (defined in Section 2.2 below) (but in no event prior to the Effective Date of the Registration Statement), during which period offers and sales of the Shares shall occur continuously in the jurisdictions in which the Shares are registered or qualified or exempt from registration (as confirmed in writing by the Company to the Dealer Manager) unless and until the Offering is terminated, provided that the Dealer Manager and the Selling Group Members will suspend or terminate offering Shares upon request of the Company at any time and will resume offering Shares upon subsequent request of the Company. The Offering Period shall in all events terminate upon the sale of all of the Shares. Upon termination of the Offering Period, the Dealer Manager’s agency and this Agreement shall terminate without obligation on the part of the Dealer Manager or the Company except as set forth in this Agreement.
