Rent-To-Own Startup That Reduces Homeownership Friction

by Larry Chiang on March 8, 2016

Larry Chiang helps you own real estate with ‘no cash out of pocket’ because of his Jedi in Business Administration ( J.B.A.). Take that $500k you saved from a house ($250k) and an MBA ($250k) and bank all of it because neither Larry Chiang nor his mentor, Mark McCormack, went to Harvard Business. They both espouse, “get a house and an MBA for FREE”. It is “What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School“, but now teach at Stanford Engineering. Similar to a credit bureau dispute written in sharpie on a #10 envelope, Reducing Homeownership Friction is “CS183PITI”.

Principal, Interest, Taxes & Insurance.
