Interesting New Models in Real Estate

Panelists include: Gary Beasley, Roofstock; Eddie Lim, Point; Moderator: Laurie Goodman, Urban Institute.

Real estate has begun to see a lot of startups trying to innovate in the space; at LendIt USA 2017 we hosted a fireside chat focused on new business models in the market; panelists discussed their segment of the real estate space; Point focuses on selling equity in your home and Roofstock focuses on the single family rental space; they talked about the two sides of the businesses with buyers and sellers, as well as the types of investors they look to target; each business is looking to fill a need that was previously not available in the market; while a lot of other fintechs are about process innovation they see their solutions as product innovations for consumers; as the companies hone their businesses they are looking at the next steps like expanding reach and reaching scale.
