This week, we interviewed Saurabh Shah from InstaLend.
Without further ado…
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Saurabh Shah – I am the co-founder of InstaLend, which is a nationwide lender for fix and flip and rental loans. I have spent the last few years growing the business and scaling it across loan product types. Typically when a borrower wants to enquire about a loan, they speak to me to get the loan origination process initiated.
What problem does your product/service solve?
InstaLend is transforming neighborhoods by allowing anyone to become a real estate developer. We do this through our flexible loan programs which are available to first-time property investors, as well as experienced folks.
What are you most excited about right now?
I believe that once the moratorium on foreclosures and evictions are lifted, we could see a lot more distressed properties come to the market, which could increase buying opportunities for property investors. This in turn should help lenders like InstaLend scale their operations and grow further.
What’s next for you?
Expanding to commercial real estate.
What’s a cause you’re passionate about and why?
I’m passionate about consciousness around our carbon footprint. With the Biden Administration, we’ve seen platforms like EnerYields being created that are helping property owners tap into low-cost incentives to make their buildings go green.
