There are some interesting startups in the real estate world:
https://better.com/ – No mortgage commissions. I might just use them for my next purchase.
https://www.lendinghome.com/ – hard money lending at 90% LTC, 80% LTV
https://www.opendoor.com/how-it-works – skipping real estate agents.
https://www.redfin.com/ – real estate agents with half the fee.
I think the real estate industry is ripe for disruption.
