KEY QUOTE:

“Each quarter, we get the opportunity to reflect on our journey to redefine how people buy and sell a home and transform the world’s largest asset class. Last quarter, I spoke to our tremendous momentum, created by our relentless focus on the consumer experience, pricing expertise, and operational excellence. Today, I am proud to share the results of those efforts. In the second quarter of 2021, we acquired a record 8,494 homes, generated revenue of $1.2 billion, and delivered adjusted EBITDA of $25.6 million, representing growth of 136% in homes acquired, 59% in revenue, and nearly $28 million in adjusted EBITDA compared to the first quarter. This strong outperformance is further evidence of the seismic shift in consumer demand towards the modern real estate experience we are pioneering. Based on our current momentum, we are operating today at a second half revenue run rate that is on track to meet the 2023 target we provided at the time of our December listing.”
