Turning a Problem into a Multi-Billion Dollar Business
Ryan Coon, Avail
– The Sharkpreneur podcast with Seth Greene Episode 460 Ryan Coon
Ryan Coon is an entrepreneur and co-founder & CEO of Avail, an all-in-one software solution designed for do-it-yourself (DIY) landlords that is used by more than 600,000 landlords and tenants across the United States.
Ryan has a hardworking spirit and together with his co-founder, Laurence Jankelow, they developed the idea for their company Avail on a napkin that now solves the needs of thousands of landlords and renters. Prior to founding Avail, Coon was an investment banking associate at BMO Capital Markets. He left this high paying job to travel, learn to code and launch a tech startup that solves the need of a previously left out market, the DIY landlord.
Avail improves lives for both landlords and renters. For landlords, it allows them to set their income properties on autopilot. They ultimately spend less time managing their rentals and more time doing things they love. For renters, it’s all about giving them access to functionality they want, like the ability to improve their credit scores by paying rent on-time and online. Avail differs from other software developers because they have a team of both landlords and renters building the product.
Avail is creating a better rental experience for landlords and tenants. They do this by providing the tools landlords need to make renting as easy as possible, including listing properties, rental applications, creating and signing digital lease agreements, collecting rent, and managing maintenance tickets—all online. This solves the problems landlords have, enhances the experience for tenants and improves the lives of both.
Listen to this informative Sharkpreneur episode with Ryan Coon about using Avail to create a better experience for landlords and tenants.
Here are some of the beneficial topics covered on this week’s show:
● How half of the rentals in the U.S. are owned and managed by individuals.
● Why extra work for an individual landlord creates a poor experience for renters.
● Why building a great product without marketing doesn’t lead to making sales.
● How landlords use Avail for the customer support and personal interaction.
● Why Avail decided to grow and serve not only landlords but their customers too.
