When Luke Pergande wanted to jump start his business idea of a marketplace for sports betting tickets; he decided to pack up and leave San Francisco and join his business partner in Las Vegas. It was an easy financial decision to make.
"Rents are high," Pergande said. "Maintenance is high. All these expenses add up."
That was almost two years ago. Now PropSwap is no longer just an idea, but a bona fide business.
"Living in Las Vegas our costs are so low that we don't have to go out and raise money to sell our stock for cash to fund our business," he said.
