BuildFax is Property Condition

Through dedication and a passion for what we do, BuildFax was able to create something unique—the first of its kind national data source for property condition. Our products serve the entire real estate ecosystem—from insurance carriers to lenders to savvy real estate professionals—answering essential questions about property improvements, structural risks, and changes over time. With more than 10 billion data points on U.S. commercial and residential structures, BuildFax is Property Condition.

"When we started BuildFax, we had a strong conviction that if we could make sense of the critical property-related data points, we could improve the information available in any property transaction. But not only could we improve the availability of property information, we could improve the quality and safety of the property itself by arming all those involved in the 'life' of the structure with more accurate property condition intelligence. That's BuildFax." - Holly Tachovsky, CEO of BuildFax

At BuildFax, innovation is a way of life

By constantly experimenting with the data and asking tough questions (and letting the best idea win), we created a proprietary, leading-edge combination of people, process, and technology. BuildFax built its own data pipeline processes and technology from the ground up to create the first national construction history database. Today, BuildFax is the leading source for property condition data in the U.S. This serves as a touchstone of pride for all of us and helps to define our company as pioneering and thrifty, with a decidedly "can-do" attitude.

"Life at BuildFax is fast-paced and fresh. I get to solve new problems daily. Every employee knows they have a direct impact on the success of the company; we constantly challenge and support one another to become better than we were yesterday. It's incredibly rewarding." - Sefton Patton, Customer Engagement at BuildFax
