On this episode, Fund That Flip retail investor Mathias Karlen joins Matt to discuss his journey into real estate investing, how COVID-19 is affecting his strategy, and more. As an avid investor, Mathias has invested in around 100 projects with Fund That Flip. Moreover, at 34 years old, Mathias describes himself as an early adopter of the online real estate investing space. Hear how the early days of online real estate investing influenced the early days of the company's founding.

Mathias outlines his due diligence strategy and key details he examines before investing in deals, such as borrower experience and LTV, while explaining why he maintains no automatic disqualifiers. He also explains why, due to unprecedented circumstances created by COVID-19, his investment strategy has returned "back to the basics," focusing more on borrower equity and how much cushion is in a deal. He stresses the importance of diversifying your investments, particularly during volatile times like this. Listen to the full episode below:
