031 – Rent-Buy Solution | Build a Community | Eric Zosso | Provito Rent Equity


The long-term advantages of Buying with the flexibility with Renting is Provito Rent Equity. 

Eric has taken his success in the CO-working space and added a twist to develop this concept of a shared responsibility concept to a person’s residence.

Eric Zosso spent five years in the military, so he knows a thing or two about moving. The options are to buy a house or rent an apartment, but neither is perfect. “Both have their flaws,” Zosso explains. “If you look at net worths of owners versus renters, owners tend to be around $145 thousand with their families’ net worth, whereas a renter family is typically around three thousand. A lot of things go into that. That’s not necessarily a causation, but there is a really strong correlation.”

Eric and I take a deep dive into his concept of helping renters gain equity while still having the mobility to move from location to location.
