The Alternative Investing Advantage Learn how to take control and give yourself the freedom to choose where you invest your money

This week on the Alternative Investing Advantage podcast, host Alex Perny welcomes Matt Rodak, Founder and CEO of Upright, for a discussion on the current real estate market conditions. Matt’s journey in real estate began in high school, where he went on to study finance.

During this episode, Matt covers the current real estate market conditions in various areas. He mentions the millennial demographic, who have not yet started buying houses, and the idea that they will continue to rent or buy houses. Matt recommends finding the right operator with the right strategy and investment philosophy. As well as investing in areas where the operators have developed a perspective on why the market is a good one. Additionally, he discusses the underwriting and investment criteria for single family, commercial, and light commercial properties.
