dv01, the world’s first end-to-end data management, reporting and analytics platform offering loan level transparency and actionable insights into lending markets, announced today that it has partnered with leading valuation-focused real estate brokerage HouseCanary. dv01 will leverage the HouseCanary Home Price Index (“HPI”) to provide investors with a more detailed analysis of the non-QM and Credit Risk Transfer (“CRT”) datasets on the dv01 platform.
Through this partnership, investors now have access to accurate home price appreciation data and updated loan-to-value (“LTV”) calculations to better assess underlying asset collateral. The HouseCanary HPI is a comprehensive and localized dataset that tracks home prices nationwide with over 40 years of historical data that covers more than 4 million census blocks in the US to ensure the most accurate and local forecasts. Integrating the HouseCanary HPI into the dv01 platform empowers investors to make more informed risk management decisions when purchasing mortgage-backed securities.
“Since a home’s valuation directly impacts a borrower’s payment behavior, investors can now harness critical post-origination data to make even better data-driven decisions,” said dv01 Founder and CEO Perry Rahbar. “Working with a leading provider in real estate analytics ensures we continue to bring transparency to the capital markets ecosystem and put our clients’ best interests at the forefront of everything we do.”
Jeremy Sicklick, HouseCanary’s Founder and CEO said, “Our mission is to make real estate valuations transparent and provide actionable insights into residential property, so partnering with dv01 is a natural fit for us. By integrating our HPI forecasts with dv01’s platform we are able to drive better decisions across the residential real estate ecosystem.”
As MBS investors continue to call for trust and transparency in the mortgage market, dv01 and HouseCanary expect to build deeper product integration.
Market participants project non-QM issuance to reach over $40 billion in 2020. As the non-QM space continues to surge, dv01 aims to provide unparalleled data transparency to the booming market.
