Marcus by Goldman Sachs® Partners with HouseCanary® to Launch Home Addition Calculator


New Online Tool Estimates Adjusted Property Value

Today Marcus by Goldman Sachs® announces the new Home
Addition Calculator
, created in partnership with HouseCanary®,
a leading data analytics and valuation platform for real estate
professionals. The Home Addition Calculator is an innovative tool which
helps homeowners to calculate the estimated adjusted value of a home

The creation of the free calculator is part of Marcus' commitment to
provide personalized products and resources to help consumers take
control of their finances.

Marcus offers personalized financial products including personal loans
and high-yield savings accounts that are designed to help people be
smarter with their money. Earlier this year, Marcus personal loans
became available for home improvement projects – providing funds to
homeowners to make their renovation ideas a reality.

The free Home Addition Calculator uses public information and market
factors, including sales and listing data from MLS and county assessor
records, in addition to other factors, to estimate property values. The
calculator provides estimates in real time for the value of a home based
on the following home additions:

• Bathroom

• Bedroom

• Pool

• Square footage

"We are excited to partner with HouseCanary to offer a new resource to
consumers who are looking to build an addition to their home," said
Abhinav Anand, Head of Lending for Marcus by Goldman Sachs. "Our free
Home Addition Calculator provides homeowners an estimate of how much an
addition could impact the value of their home and helps them make
smarter financial decisions."

"Marcus by Goldman Sachs is helping homeowners finance their home
improvement dreams using a streamlined technology experience," said
Jeremy Sicklick, co-founder and CEO at HouseCanary. "HouseCanary's
industry-leading data and proprietary analytics provide homeowners with
in-depth insights on the current and estimated future values of their
homes, and we are excited to partner with Marcus to bring this project
to life."

Marcus home
improvement loans
have no fees. Ever. No sign-up fees, no late fees
(customers only pay interest for the additional days) and no prepayment
fees. The application process is easy and does not require a home
appraisal or borrowing against your home. Once approved, many Marcus
customers receive their funds within four days. Marcus home improvement
loans provide borrowers complete control over how they use their funds
without being committed to pre-approved projects or a single contractor.
Loans range from $3,500 to $40,000 for periods of three to six years,
providing creditworthy customers with a smart and simple solution for
investing in a home renovation. Marcus home improvement loans provide
value, simplicity and flexibility.
