About Better.com:

We’re one of the fastest growing homeownership companies in America. Why? Because we’re making homeownership simpler, faster — and most importantly, more accessible for all Americans.

By combining smarter technology with a desire to not just change one piece of the journey but the entire makeup of what it’s like to buy and own a home in this country, we’re building things that don’t exist yet. 

Better.com by the numbers: 

  • We fund $600 million in home loans per month
  • Nearly $5 billion in loans funded since our inception in 2016
  • 2 years running, we’re one of Crain’s “Best Places to work”
  • We’re #11 on Fortune’s Best Places to Work in NYC
  • And #964 on Inc.’s 2019 “5000 Fastest-Growing Companies” 
  • We’ve secured over $254 million from our investors to date 
  • ...and counting

We continue to outpace the industry at every turn. We’ve recently joined forces in partnership with Ally Bank. Plus, our backers have helped build some of the most transformative tech and finance companies in history. Kleiner Perkins, Goldman Sachs, IA Ventures, American Express, Citigroup, Activant Capital, and others have all invested in our vision of redefining the entire home buying journey.
