Real estate has long been viewed as a highly stable investment asset. As a hard asset, real estate is considered to have more intrinsic value than stocks. And that can make it a great investment in times of market volatility — like we’re seeing today!

But similar to startups, real estate investing used to be primarily reserved for people who were already wealthy and who had the right connections. Thankfully, that’s changing. And today’s Inside Startup Investing guest, Levi Brackman, is part of that change.

Levi is the founder and CEO of Invown, a real estate investing marketplace that connects property owners with investors of all backgrounds. And on today’s episode of Inside Startup Investing, Chris Lustrino and Levi discuss the democratization of real estate investing, how investors can think about debt vs equity in real estate deals, and some exciting deals that are coming to Invown soon.
