Market Map: 240 Real Estate Technology Companies Transforming Today’s Housing Market
October 26, 2021
I’m excited to release Thomvest’s real estate technology market map, which includes more than 240 companies operating within the residential real estate segment.
This is the third update to the market map and includes over 100 additional companies — a testament to the pace of entrepreneurship in this segment. A high-resolution version of the map can be accessed here, the full list of companies is available here, and my commercial real estate market map is here.
So much has happened in the housing market over the last year — home pricing across the U.S. are up 16% year-over-year, interest rates remain near historic lows and housing construction starts are up meaningfully for the first time in more than a decade (for more detail on this, see my recent housing market update).
Times have also been good for technology companies in real estate — several companies in the sector went public over the last year, including Opendoor, Compass, Better and Blend (a Thomvest portfolio company). Venture capital activity in real estate has also remained quite strong — investment in the category reached $8 billion through the first 9 months of 2021, a record.
