On today’s episode, I’m joined by Joe Cianciolo, Founder & CEO of HomePace.

HomePace’s mission is to enable homeowners and homebuyers to gain financial flexibility. They do this by allowing homeowners and homebuyers to unlock the equity in their homes.

HomePace’s innovation gives homeowners more financial freedom without taking on more debt and gives institutional investors access to the real estate asset class.

Joe and I talked about where the HomePace idea originated from, his time at SecondMarket and FutureAdvisor, the typical use of funds through this transaction, how the overall real estate market impacts their business, playing football at Penn State, raising capital, and much more.
