About BuildFax

The source of truth for property condition and history

We Created This Market

At the height of the 2008 financial crisis, BuildFax established a previously non-existent class of data after identifying a gap in the market: across industries, there was a need for validated property risk and a way to monitor the evolution of that risk. Over the last 10 years, BuildFax filled this need by transforming unstructured data into market-transforming insights. These include underlying property insights, including roof age and property condition, as well as macro-economic analyses of the housing market.

Today, BuildFax property condition and history data is considered the industry standard, trusted by the largest insurance and investment firms in the world to deliver business-critical property intelligence solutions. With more than 84 billion data points on commercial and residential structures, BuildFax delivers under-the-hood insights on remodeling, solar installations, new construction, roof age, major systems, maintenance history and more.

Our Leadership Team

Holly Tachovsky CEO / Co-Founder

“BuildFax forged an entirely new market for property intelligence, but it’s our passion for our people that has driven the company forward. This company was built on a culture that’s squarely focused on its employees and customer success.”

Jonathan Kanarek Chief Operating Officer

“It’s a joy to be part of a team that performs at such a high level, but functions as a family with candor and integrity. As much as we’ve grown in the past few years, we’re just getting started.”
