Homeownership and real estate are often cited as one of the primary drivers of creating intergenerational wealth in the United States. Amid the pandemic, Americans went on a homebuying spree as the line between work and home blurred. Owning a home can be extremely rewarding but it does come with significant responsibility. Realm is a centralized data hub for homeowners to access insights on every aspect of homeownership, based on their personalized circumstances, enabling them to make data-driven decisions for what will likely be the single largest investment of their lives. The platform, launched earlier this year, leverages proprietary and public data to assess value (both current and potential with renovations), estimate project costs, and learn more about financing options. In California, homeowners can work with Realm advisors to work on renovation projects from beginning to end. In the six months since launch, the Realm has been used by 20,000+ homeowners across the nation. AlleyWatch caught up with CEO and Founder Liz Young to learn more about scaling consumer data applications in the real estate space, the company’s strategic plans, and the latest round of funding from investors that include GGV Capital, Primary Venture Partners, Lerer Hippeau, and Liberty Mutual Strategic Ventures.

The American Dream has traditionally been rooted in homeownership and for most, real estate represents the most highly-valued asset.

The platform is free to use and additional in-depth reports can be purchased for $99. Presently, Realm covers 63M single-family homes nationwide.
