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.
The RealtyHop Scholarship awards up to $2,000 a year to eligible undergraduate students and high school seniors working towards a bachelor and/or associate degree program in the US who demonstrate the ambition, diligence, leadership, and entrepreneurial spirit that is central to our company culture.
The scholarship prompt is as follows:
“COVID-19 has drastically impacted the world and will continue to change how society views our home as a place of living, working, and studying. As you reflect on the global pandemic and the beginning of your professional life, tell us what you would like to start doing, stop doing, and keep on doing.”
