Commercial Search Category Leads Real Estate Technology Funding

Venture Scanner

Last quarter we looked at real estate technology funding trends and uncovered that investors are placing bigger bets on fewer companies. This quarter we are performing a deeper examination on our real estate tech research platform to compare funding by category. Our analysis reveals two key takeaways:

  • The Commercial Search category leads the sector in Q2 funding
  • The Commercial Search category also leads the sector in all-time funding

We’ll explain these key takeaways with some graphics and discussions below.

The Commercial Search Category Leads Real Estate Technology In Q2 Funding

Real Estate Technology Investors Investing More in Fewer Deals

Venture Scanner

As we have previously shared, the Real Estate Technology (proptech) startup sector is seeing a lot of momentum. How have its funding trends evolved over time? On our Real Estate Technology research platform, we have analyzed the data through 2017 and can conclude that investments into the Real Estate Technology market have become fewer in frequency but larger in amount.

We have come to this conclusion from the following three takeaways:

  •      Total funding amounts are seeing strong growth
  •      Number of funding events is seeing a decline
  •      Average funding per deal is increasing

We will illustrate these takeaways through a series of graphics.
