About Us

We help people make better real estate decisions. Eight words that drive everything we do.

What We Do


We Build Amazing Data

Great data is required for the analytics we do. We have built, and will continue to build, the most comprehensive real estate data set in the marketplace. Every data element we include is based on clear reasoning for why this factor matters. We track the most specific details about a given property, the broadest macroeconomic factors, and everything in between. Our data infrastructure aggregates 1,000's of data elements from a broad set of data sources. Over 50% of the data we use is based on our own proprietary data calculations as well as data feedback loops from having our products in the market.


We Forecast The Impossible

We use models and enduring data relationships to accurately see into the future. Our team of PhD statisticians and data scientists use the latest in machine learning and predictive analytics to understand relationships. We build models that have and continue to work accurately over the last 40 years. With great data and predictive tools we can be much better prepared for the future.


We Design Technological Products That Are Needed Most

Great data and predictive models are not enough. The information needs to help you create value. We translate our information into products focused on helping our clients better understand their investment and create value. Whether you are a Fortune 100 bank, a homebuilder, or appraise homes for a living, we have built products that are focused on directly helping you. Our products help our clients with their biggest needs, yet there are many more products we know we need to build. We work hard to prioritize product development based on client needs.

Why We Do It

It started with a business executive and a data scientist, who came together with one mission:

“Imagine...what we would do, if we could understand where real estate prices are going.”

When we looked at the available tools, we saw data aggregators charging exorbitant prices for incomplete bits of raw data, we saw analysts ineffectively using rear-view looking information to make forward-looking projections, and most information was only available at a county level that lacked the street-level local relevance.

We saw a need a to bring better information, analytical rigor, sophistication, and tools to the $20 Trillion US residential real estate market made up of 140M homes, 25,000 zip codes and 80,000 blocks. We knew it would take a different kind of company to build it. That's why we founded HouseCanary.

Who We Are

Do the impossible together.

Our team is made up of some of the brightest and most dedicated data real estate strategists, statisticians, software engineers, and designers in the world.
