For better or worse, peer-to-peer lending platforms like Lending Club have been in the spotlight for years now. Other players in the booming fintech industry have been decidedly lower-key. But as new laws and regulations make it easier than ever for regular people to put their money to work in alternative investments, a few worthy fintech startups are finally earning a place in the sun.
RealAtom is among the most interesting of the bunch. The D.C.-based startup (technically headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, but same difference) is democratizing the arcane and often frustrating process by which commercial real estate developers find and close on financing.
Sara Gilgore’s article in the Washington Business Journal lays it out nicely, but it’s worth taking a closer look at how RealAtom (and the competitors that are sure to come out of the woodwork soon) actually works. If you’re looking for a commercial real estate loan, you’ll find this fascinating.
On Sunday, May 3rd, The Greenwich and Old Greenwich offices of Berkshire Hathaway New England Properties will be hosting their Spring Open House Tour.
The event will kick off at 11:30 am at their Greenwich office on Putnam Ave, where there will be a short, insightful presentation on real estate. The presentation will include some of the most essential topics when it comes to buying and selling in today’s real estate market, such as: market trends, making sense of local sales data, how to prepare your home for sale, negotiation tactics, and how to select a real estate agent.
Lunch will be provided after the presentation, followed by over thirty open house tours hosted by various agents. You won’t want to miss out on viewing some of Connecticut’s most talked-about real estate, especially if you are thinking about buying or selling a property. The open house showings will be ending around 4 p.m.
At this event, information will be provided about various vendors’ companies and services, along with a distribution of discount coupons to use at local restaurants.
