Andrea Petersen: Start Investing in Real Estate Today With as Little as $500!! | E215
In 2022, Millennials made up just 14% of all homebuying purchases, down from nearly 25% in 2021. Today, many young people are getting pushed out of the market by older wealthy home buyers. Luckily, people like the CEO of School of Whales Andrea Petersen are aiming to change the future state of the real estate market. In this episode, Andrea teaches us all about financial mindfulness and commercial real-estate crowdfunding - a niche industry that has exploded in recent years. She touches on how to navigate the current housing market and the dilemmas that millennials face when buying their first home.
Andrea Petersen is a financial expert and real estate investor with a seasoned portfolio of investing experience ranging from commercial real estate to renewable energy, hospitality, banking, and just about everything in between. She is the Chief Financial Officer of The Cooper Precision Companies and the Co-Founder and CEO of School of Whales, a crowdfunding platform for commercial real estate which allows the public to get involved with real-estate projects that were previously inaccessible for as little as $500.
