We are more than halfway through 2022, and real estate financial results for the second quarter have been released by many of the biggest companies in the industry.

Below are highlights of the financial results from Zillow, Anywhere, eXp, Offerpad, Opendoor, Redfin, Rocket Companies, RE/MAX, and Fathom.

  • Generated Revenue of $2.1 billion, a decrease of 6% year-over-year, was largely impacted by the absence of revenue from our former title underwriter business due to its sale in the first quarter of 2022 as well as lower homesale transaction volume.

  • Generated Operating EBITDA of $202 million, a decrease of $108 million year-over-year

Even in a much tougher housing market, Anywhere delivered the solid profitability and Free Cash Flow that we believe the market is increasingly valuing.

Redfin Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Redfin Corporation’s Q2 2022 financial highlights include:

  • Revenue was $606.9 million, an increase of 29% year over year.
  • Gross profit was $118 million, a decrease of 6% compared to Q2 2021.
  • Real estate services gross profit was $74.1 million, a 16% decrease year over year.
  • Real estate services gross margin was 29%, compared to 35% the previous year. 
  • Net loss was $78.1 million, compared to $27.9 million in Q2 2021. 
  • Adjusted EBITA loss was $28.6 million, compared to adjusted EBITDA incomes of $2.8 million in the second quarter of 2021. 

The housing market took a turn for the worse in the second quarter. But I have never been more proud of how this company has responded: we cut costs, grew traffic, accelerated share gains and loyalty sales, lowered voluntary attrition and, for the first time since April 2020, improved the rate at which people buying homes stuck with a Redfin agent. Our rentals business recorded its first quarter-over-quarter revenue gain since 2017, and re-launched itself across every platform as Rent. Best of all, the rate at which Redfin homebuyers got a Redfin mortgage hit 15% in July, a near doubling of the all-time high before 2022. For the quarter, title attach rates more than doubled year over year. There will be more market ups and downs in the road ahead, but our whole engine to drive traffic, brokerage share, customer value and monetization is running more efficiently than ever.
