When it comes to successful real estate investing, having access to reliable and accurate data can have a huge impact on your profit potential. Technology has brought us to a point where there’s an abundance of data available, you just have to know where to find it and how to use it properly. Today’s guest is levelling the playing field by helping small businesses and investors get access to the same data and public records that are coveted by larger firms.

Sean O’Toole flipped over 150 properties in Silicon Valley before he strategically exited the market in 2006 to focus on real estate technology. He founded ForeclosureRadar in 2007, and in 2013 he pivoted away from foreclosures to general real estate with the launch of PropertyRadar.

Today, Sean is going to help us understand how data should drive our decisions, what we should look for when applying data to our due diligence, and why having access to the right data can create a consistent pipeline of opportunities and be a game changer. We’re also going to discuss ‘Information Arbitrage’ and how understanding that concept has helped Sean profit from deals other investors have avoided.

Sean is sharing a glimpse into a world that most investors spend little time understanding or researching. But those who do take the time can develop x-ray vision into opportunities that might scare away other investors.
