History

Founded by Jeremy Sicklick and Chris Stoud in 2013, HouseCanary aims to provide better predictions and comprehensive data to advise investors in the real estate market. Combining Sicklick’s experience managing billions in real estate investments and Stoud’s economist background and research on financial risk, they developed the tools and software for better investment decisions. They aimed to improve the incomplete data, lack of projections for the future, and limited geographical information without local relevance other consultants were offering.

HouseCanary assists investors in finding investment opportunities, giving mortgage companies a more complete view of properties they underwrite, improving the appraisal process, and helping homeowners manage their assets. Whether purchasing a home for the first time or planning to invest millions, they provide the resources to make informed investments all over the US.

In 2014, HouseCanary took on over $20 million of venture and private equity capital in order to develop their services. While the company is based in San Francisco, CA, a team of researchers work out of San Antonio, TX. Included in their staff of 50 employees are many with PhD level training in mathematics, statistics, engineering, physics, and more. Listed as one of the HW Tech100 companies by HousingWire in 2016 for its achievements in innovative technology, HouseCanary continues to change the way investments are made in the $20 Trillion residential real estate market.
