    IMN SFR Series, SFR Market Place - Beasley, CEO of Roofstock

    in Finance

    Up until recent years, REITs were the option of choice for investors who wanted to invest in real estate, but lacked a strong professional background in the industry. The economic crisis, low interest rates and the rise of sophisticated trading methodologies led millions of investors to search for alternative ways to search out, invest and manage real estate investments.  Crowd funding became a popular platform for investors to access the market. 
    Joining the podcast today is Gary Beasley, CEO of Roofstock.   Roofstock is the first online marketplace created exclusively for investing in leased Single-Family Rental homes that generate cash flow day one.  It’s also one of the fasting growing startups and has just announced another $20mm B round participation led by Lightspeed Venture Partners.
    Prior to founding Roofstock, Gary was co-CEO of Starwood Waypoint Residential, one of the leading single family rental companies in the US.

    California Yvanova's Paves the Way for Gieseke, Lundy and Sciarratta Decisions

    in Finance

    “As it stands, the “creditor” consists of all investors in all trusts created by each investment bank. But nobody is acting as if that is true.”
    The California 9th Circuit Court of Appeals (Federal) has made it clear that it will routinely reverse any decision that involves the trial court accepting void assignments or in which the court rules that the borrower has no standing to raise the issue of ownership and standing based upon a void assignment on the grounds that the borrower was not a party to the transaction.
    The very notion of due process means that all parties have an opportunity to pursue the truth and not be stuck with some legal presumption that is based upon a false statement of fact.
    The importance of the Geiseke decision is that it is black letter law, as they say, that every borrower should know the identity of his or her creditor. But like other issues, the courts are still asking “what difference does it make?”  It makes all the difference in the world.

    Financials: Exploring Why the U.S. Economy Is So Strong Right Now

    in Finance

    It’s tempting to think that the American economy is still struggling to recover from the financial crisis, but the data says otherwise. Eight years after the Crash of 1929, the U.S. economy was still mired in the Great Depression. Fast forward to today, eight years after the financial crisis, which was the worst economic downturn since the 1930s, and the economy is looking as robust as ever. In this episode of Industry Focus: Financials, The Motley Fool’s Gaby Lapera and John Maxfield talk about the state of the U.S. economy right now, digging through the statistics and trends that matter most.
