Christopher Stroud is a relatively young pioneer when it comes to the real estate industry. At only 27 years old, he partnered with CEO Jeremy Sicklick to found HouseCanary in 2014.

Now, as co-founder and head of research, Stroud has led the company in creating the most accurate predictive analytics in the industry, within a 2.5% median absolute prediction error. Stroud has been instrumental in leading the development of HouseCanary’s proprietary models used to value real estate. Stroud, using his previous experience as an economist and his dissertation research on dynamic models of financial risk, led his team at HouseCanary to create and implement this technology. Stroud has grown HouseCanary’s machine learning, dynamic modeling and cloud computing capabilities to be among the most comprehensive and accurate in the industry. HouseCanary clients now include some of the largest financial institutions, including the top five buyers of residential whole loans on Wall Street, three of the largest Wall Street investment firms and four of the top five single-family rental companies.
