Recognized for transformative approach to real estate investing

OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 29, 2018– Roofstock, the leading marketplace for single-family rental (SFR) investment properties, today announced that it has been named to the CB Insights Fintech 250 list, a renowned group of 250 innovative financial game-changers, for the second consecutive year.

Roofstock, launched in 2016, is a two-sided marketplace, connecting buyers and sellers of single-family rentals. The platform is leveling the playing field by offering new levels of transparency and efficiency to create a better way to invest. Roofstock offers cutting-edge research, analytics and insights to help consumers evaluate and purchase independently certified properties. Roofstock has properties in 41 markets across the United States and has completed over $1 billion in transactions.

“We’re incredibly honored to be included on the CB Insights Fintech 250 list for the second year in a row alongside so many transformative players in the industry,” said Gary Beasley, CEO and co-founder of Roofstock. “We’re helping to advance the next phase of technology innovation in real estate - a world in which AI, machine learning and advanced technologies will redefine the way real estate is bought and sold and open up SFR investing to investors around the world.”

The CB Insights research team selected the Fintech 250 companies based on several factors, including data submitted by each company and their Mosaic Score. Based on CB Insights’ algorithm, The Mosaic Score, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies. Through this evidence-based, statistically-driven approach, the Mosaic Score can help predict a company’s momentum, market health and financial viability.

2018 has been a significant year of growth for the firm, with the recent launch of its Roofstock Guarantee, acquisition of Streetlane PM LLC in July, expansion into the Pittsburgh and Columbia markets and milestone achievement of $1 billion transactions, less than two years after launching. Looking ahead to 2019, Roofstock is committed to expanding inventory available on its marketplace via proprietary technology to best serve its customers’ investment needs.
