We often talk about being passive real estate investors but did you know there are different levels of passive investor. For example, I, as an owner of multifamily properties in other states, delegate but manage my properties or assets through property managers in the various states I have assets. I call myself a passive investor. But there are investors who are even more passive –passive investors who help fund other passive investors’ like me – who do not deal with the day-today activities of managing the asset but who entrust the profitable management of that asset to someone else generate a nice return for their investment. And there are investors who may not know the asset manager but invest through crowdfunding. That type of investor is precisely who our guest is today.
Ian Ippolito is an investor and serial tech entrepreneur. He has been interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, Forbes, TIME, Fast Company, TechCrunch, CBS News, FOX News and more. Ian was impressed by the potential of real estate crowdfunding, but frustrated by the lack of quality site reviews and investment analysis. That’s why he created The Real Estate Crowdfunding Review to fill that gap. More on Ippolito: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Ippolito
