RealtyHop Scholarship

Who we are

RealtyHop finds the most undervalued condo, coop, and home deals. While other sites are tailored to first-time homeowners, our target audience is investors and buyers with an investment mindset. We recognize the value of the fundamentals when it comes to buying/selling properties, and we believe that every investor, whether large or small, should have access to the information. At RealtyHop, We focus on important quantitative metrics such as cap rate, financing, tax benefits, and board restrictions. Specifically, with a trove of rental data from our rental site, RentHop, we predict the sublet return, model cash flow revenues, and help investors make smarter decisions.
