COMPANY HISTORY Jeremy Sicklick and Chris Stroud founded HouseCanary in 2014, with the goal of helping peo- ple make better real estate decisions. The company has since grown to nearly 100 employees, and has expanded its datasets to cover every residential property in the U.S. HouseCanary is revolutionizing the way homes are purchased, appraised, valued, and sold. With a team of world-class data scien- tists, HouseCanary has created the most accurate forecasting models in the industry, and has packaged its knowledge into easy-to-use software tools for ap- praisers, brokers, investors, and lenders. BUSINESS LINES, SERVICES, AND PRODUCTS Lenders: HouseCanary's Valuation Suite offers lenders objective collateral valuations for all levels of risk. From the industry's most accurate residential AVM (median error of 2.7 percent), to Value Report, the comprehensive desktop valuation tool available on demand for 100 million properties, to the unique Agile Appraisal TM , a faster, lower-cost alternative to BPOs, 2055, or 1004 appraisals, the suite allows lenders to qualify and underwrite with unprecedent- ed speed and accuracy. The data and analytics underpinning our Valuation Suite are available to lenders to value properties through the life of the loan—and they're also available via API and Match & Append to deliver valuations in bulk, on demand. Investors: HouseCanary's Valuation Suite allows institutional investors faster deal diligence, more accurate valuations, and the ability to optimize property and loan portfolios with data available on demand and in bulk. Imagine a centralized hub that tells you which properties to retain, which to sell, which to upgrade and then sell, and which to upgrade and re-lease at optimal rent. All this is possible in minutes, allowing teams of analysts to redeploy their time. Real Estate Brokers and Agents: HouseCanary elevates real estate professionals with the most complete and accurate home valuations and analytics for every block and property in the U.S. Providing them much more than a CMA, the Value Report serves as a tool that helps agents give their clients the "why behind their home's value." Appraisers: HouseCanary saves appraisers time and money with all-in-one cloud appraisal software that can be accessed from your desktop, tablet, or phone. KEYS FEATURES AND BENEFITS Aggregating millions of data elements, including more than four decades of property data and a rapidly expanding arsenal of proprietary calculations and analytics, allows HouseCanary to accurately forecast residential home values and identify market influences to help real estate professionals make mission-critical decisions, such as property selection, valuation, un- derwriting, and portfolio optimization. Our mobile, web, and API products are trusted by leading institutional investors, lenders, and real estate brokers. COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE By indexing and analyzing over 40 years of residen- tial data and a billion transactions, HouseCanary of- fers residential forecasts for every metro, ZIP code, and block in the United States with an unmatched 0.7 percent error rate over 12 months. With our comprehensive data set and easy-to-use software, lenders can qualify and approve clients faster than ever while knowing they have the industry's most accurate forecasting models on their side. ADDED VALUE TO CLIENTS Utilizing the industry's most comprehensive data set, HouseCanary brings value to clients with every real estate decision they make. In addition to the most accurate, real-time lending database in the U.S., HouseCanary can pre-qualify potential mortgage customers, speeding up the process and reducing lenders' credit risk. HouseCanary also offers an array of software solutions for appraisers, brokers, and agents that help them work smarter, faster, and more efficiently—saving them time and money.
