About Plunk

 

Founded in 2019, Plunk is a data-driven fintech company with a mission to help homeowners live their best lives through their homes. Our team is made up of data scientists, engineers, product managers, financial analysts, designers, storytellers, and most importantly–we’re a team passionate about empowering homeowners. 

 

For most homeowners, their net worth is largely tied to their home. And while a home is first and foremost a place to live, it’s also an investment. So through Plunk, we will help homeowners treat their homes like investments. We will do this by providing data to homeowners about the value of their home, and point them to the home improvement projects that are worth investing in to drive their home value up. We will also help homeowners partner with the right contractors, lenders and other experts to get the job done.
