Deals and dollars
In Q3’16, real estate tech companies raised $256M across 53 deals.
Q3’16 funding dollars plummeted 82% quarter-over-quarter, but this was mainly due to Chinese online-to-offline services company Homelink‘s $926M Series B round which drove up total funding figures in Q2’16. However, when looking at the 5-year trend, we see that Q3’16 saw the lowest funding total for real estate tech companies since Q2’14.
In total, Q3’16 saw 53 deals, notching the 7th straight quarter with 50+ deals to real estate tech startups. Q3’16 deal count was up 6% on a quarterly basis after dropping to 50 deals in Q2’16.
Most well-funded companies
Homelink, which raised a $926M Series B in Q2’16, is the most well-funded real estate tech company on the list followed by the Asia-based Fangdd and Aiwujiwu, each of which have raised over $300M in disclosed funding to date.
