SAN FRANCISCO — HouseCanary, which creates industry-leading real estate valuation platforms, is honored to be included in the HousingWire Tech 100 list. The annual list brings together the most innovative companies in real estate, and this is the third time HouseCanary has appeared on the Tech 100.

“This program recognizes the leading technology and software companies — from companies with a single offering to companies that may house ten or more different software platforms,” HousingWire wrote in this year’s list introduction. “Applicants include heavy hitters and innovative disruptors.”

This year, HouseCanary was specifically recognized for its collaboration with Google and more generally for the unparalleled real estate dataset that the company has collected and analyzed.

“HouseCanary’s predictive data analytics engine processes thousands of data elements spanning 40 years of historical data and one billion residential real estate transactions — and covers 381 metros, nearly 20,000 ZIP codes and 4 million total blocks,” HousingWire wrote to describe why HouseCanary was named. “HouseCanary indexes, standardizes, and analyzes the data to forecast home-price valuations and market trends for 3 million residential blocks, 18,000 zip codes, and 381 U.S. metropolitan areas.

“In March 2017, the company announced a collaboration with Google to power the residential real estate datasets for Google Cloud Platform Commercial Datasets,” HousingWire added.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by HousingWire for both our unmatched real estate data and our ability to form close partnerships with major technology players,” said Jeremy Sicklick, HouseCanary’s founder and CEO. “HouseCanary has worked hard to collect, curate, and clean housing data from disparate sources, resulting in a dataset that’s unmatched anywhere else in real estate, and we’re excited that the work we’re doing to make home valuations faster, easier, and more accurate than ever before is being acknowledged and celebrated by an industry tastemaker like HousingWire.”
