I recently sat down (virtually) with Matt Rodak, the founder and CEO at the alternative investment platform Fund That Flip.
Fund That Flip is a venture-backed real estate investment marketplace specializing in short-term loans for residential real estate rehabbers. Prior to founding Fund That Flip, Matt led sales and marketing for a $950M commercial property risk management firm. Matt earned a finance degree from John Carroll University and is a Chartered Property Underwriter.
We covered a lot of ground during the discussion, including:
- What inspired Matt to start FundThatFlip
- What investments in FundThatFlip look like, including what kind of securities investors actually get when they invest
- What investors new to real estate should know before making their first investment
- The impact of COVID-19 on the residential fix-and-flip business
- How to manage risk in real estate investments
It was a great conversation, and I especially appreciated that Matt took time to chat very soon after a recent move.
