A typical real estate investor spends months scoping out locations and calculating return rates. Sometimes all that effort is wasted when someone else beats them to their chosen real estate. With Mashvisor, you’ll be the one leaving other potential buyers in the dust.
Airbnb, PropertyFinder, OLX, and Facebook marketplace are all useful means of scoping out real estate. They directly target an information need in the market, where people wish to gather data from the comfort of their homes. However, what those services lack is a curation of data. Peter Abualzolof, a Palestinian citizen living in the US, saw that the availability of raw data is one thing, but what the market really needs is insights.
Abulzolof along with his partner Moh’d Jebrini, founded Mashvisor in 2015, a property analytics data tool that claims to present months of research in 15 minutes. Although having just been in the ideation phase a few years ago, Mashvisor has developed itself to become a user-friendly tool in real estate investment.
The website allows its users to view real estate opportunities in an area and quickly compare all of them. It provides in-depth analysis on rent, turnover, similar properties, and other insights.
Mashvisor won multiple investment competitions and funding cycles ranging from 100,000 to 200,000 U.S. dollars. They went on to be a fully-fledged investment advisor that functions in the US market and is on its way to expanding internationally.
