After a tough 2022, real estate-related companies continued to lose money in the first quarter of 2023. However, according to Daniel Houston’s Intel analysis, both agents and companies appear to have adjusted to the losses and are turning their attention to the rest of 2023, when better conditions are anticipated.

This optimism has been reflected in the relatively warm reception given to the sector by investors in recent days. Beginning on May 5, shares in Redfin, Opendoor, Compass and Offerpad all began to climb, resulting in a positive tone in many earnings reports that were otherwise fairly grim. While numbers were down this quarter, investor confidence suggests that a brighter outlook might be on the horizon.
