About Home Bay

homebay: where your real estate voyage begins. Houses

Founded in 2014, Home Bay was a California-based real estate brokerage with a 100% digital business model that relied on technology rather than on-the-ground agents. Despite raising an impressive $19 million in investments, Home Bay ceased operations in September 2021.

Clever Real Estate, a St. Louis-based real estate education and agent matching platform, purchased Home Bay and its extensive library of content in late 2021.

Today, thousands of monthly readers rely on Home Bay to make decisions about home value estimators, contingencies, seller fees, and more. Our team of expert researchers are demystifying real estate to help you confidently sail through your next home sale or purchase.
