Nima Ghamsari -- Co-Founder and Head

Welcome, everyone. Thank you for joining. I want to start with a few highlights for this quarter, starting with our growth. So first, we grew our customer base with 17 net new logos.

We expanded our consumer banking and marketplace revenues, which is a new disaggregation we're sharing this quarter, by 110% year over year, showing growth in our emerging businesses. Within mortgage, our market share increased from 8% a year ago to 14% this year. And we increased our quarterly revenues on a year on year and sequential basis despite a softening mortgage market. On the new product front, we launched a new product called Blend Income, which is an easy way for lenders to verify the income of their consumers.

We have over 50 customers already signed up for that. You'll hear more about that a little later. Third, maybe very importantly to you all, we're starting to share some clarity on how we view our business, the metrics we use to track our business. And so you're going to see that consumer banking and marketplace revenues line item to show our growth in emerging businesses over time.

We're also going to share additional metrics on how we think best-in-class software businesses should operate, things like market share, gross revenue retention, market-adjusted volume, adjusted net retention. That will help you give us get a sense of how we think about the growth of our business over time. And lastly, on the Title365 front, we made meaningful progress in the integration of Title365 into our Blend title solution, and we're excited to share more with you on that. But before I get into it, I just want to quickly reiterate our vision for financial services.

Banking is quickly moving to the cloud, and the way consumers are being served is a consumer-first, real-time proactive experience. Those things, those kinds of experiences are extremely difficult to offer on existing tech stacks, and we're seeing lots of our customers scramble to get modern solutions in place to serve those end consumers across their entire bank in a unified way, and that's where Blend comes in. We're helping build that proactive, personalized, data-driven future and where the software platform of choice for these institutions to do so. Another metric we track at Blend is our mortgage market share.

And as we sign and roll out customers, we want to continue to grow that over time. We track it in two components. The first is how much has actually been utilized on the Blend platform and being funded through the Blend platform. This is important because we have a success-based business model, and growing that is the way that we make revenue from our customers.

You can see that just over two years we grew from 4.5% market share to 13.5% market share have signed and used units on the Blend platform. We also track the signed and unused volume on the Blend platform. This represents near-term opportunity, essentially growth within our current customer base of additional units that could roll out to drive additional value to our customer and revenue to Blend. In the most recent half year, in addition to the 13.5% that's actually going through our platform, we have another 10% of unused units.

That 10% represents significant upside in our current customer base. And on top of that, the remaining 76.5% is completely untapped market for us, meaning that there's still a lot of headroom for us to grow within our customer base and outside of our customer base. I want to talk about our customers. I love talking about our customers.

It's what matters most to us at Blend. And let's start with our growth in our customer base. In Q3, we had a really strong quarter. Our total customers are up net 73 net new customers year over year and 17 sequentially.

The customers signed in the third quarter added capacity for more than 300,000 annual banking transactions, and the total capacity grew 40% year over year. So we're excited about continuing to add to our customer base and lay a foundation for the future in this quarter. Some specific stories. We had a top 25 nonbank lender decided to use us.

They were previously on a competitor. They wanted to be on the best platform. They signed with us, and they got live within a matter of months. It was a significant offering for us.

They're a very large lender, and we're excited to have them on board. In addition, Prosperity Bank, a large Texas-based bank with 37 billion in assets, they decided to partner with Blend across their entire portfolio. And for these diversified financial institutions, using one platform across their entire customers is exactly what we want because we can offer a unique cross-product experience and exactly what they need because they can have a simpler architecture and get deeper relationships with our customers. And so this is a very important win for us.

We also advanced some existing relationships. KeyBank, which we just announced last quarter, is already live, meaning reflects real revenue to us, which is great to be live that fast for a bank of such scale. And in addition, we drove meaningful progress with recently won fintech customers, including Mortgage, UpEquity, and Accept Inc. We continue to work with fintechs to give them the software platform that they need and the flexibility they need to reflect their brand, but also the power they need to serve their customers.

And lastly, we have customers who've gone from their baseline phase of being live at scale to now growth, which means using new products with us. So BMO Harris, they're example of a customer that's been using us for a few years, and now they decided to use us for their wealth management group. And that's very exciting for us because it's a new area for us to use our platform. And they're a marquee client of ours, a partner of ours for years.

Having them rely on us and come to us for this new solution was a great sign of our partnership. Another set of metrics that we look at a Blend are around our customers, in particular, how we retain and grow with our customers. These are important because we're in an industry-specific software company, which means that we have to be able to retain customers and we have to be able to get deeper and deeper with them over time. And so gross retention shows our ability to retain those customers.

You can see that we hovered above 99% for the last five quarters. We sometimes make mistakes, but it's very rare, and we retain almost every customer because we care about them. We work with them to make them successful. We've made our entire organizational model around driving success to that, including how we compensate our people.

And so retaining customers is very important to us, and we'll continue to work on that over time. But retaining customers is not enough in an industry because you can have a really sticky product that's very integrated, which Blend is, but not continue to grow value with those customers. And so we also look at how we grow our customers. And in particular, net retention is how we look at that.

One thing that you all told us in the last few months is that net retention is great, but we have to adjust for market volumes. And so we've kind of shared our breakdown of how we look at this, which is a market-adjusted net retention number. You can see that every quarter for the last seven quarters our net retention has remained above 140%, ranging from 140 to 180%. And that's because we continue to build software products and other services on top of our platform that can grow with our customers as they roll out more volumes.

And we look at this to make sure that we're creating more and more value for every single customer every year that goes by. So these are the two things that we really care about as a management team and we make sure we pay a lot of attention to as we continue to grow. The last thing I want to share is our adoption of new products. We realized that our core mortgage product, which we launched years ago, is very successful.

But as we've gotten requests from our customers to expand in new areas, the broader homeownership marketplaces, the broader consumer banking suite, we started to build those things out, and we want to track the success of those things. And for the first time, we're sharing those with you. And you can see that in consumer banking transactions alone, we more than quadrupled year over year. And in consumer banking and marketplace revenues, we more than doubled year over year.

We're at the beginning of this industry digitizing, not just the industry, but the entire ecosystem around it, the entire marketplaces around them. And for us to be the trusted partner in those things is so important. It means that the size of our ability to serve and transform this industry, the size of our market, our total addressable market, will continue to grow as new adjacent opportunities come our way by working with our customers very closely. And so having a good track record here is exactly what we want to be able to show you and show our customers that we can deliver that value to them.

I'm going to shift to the new product front. It's really important for us as Blend to keep adding new products to our suite of services because so much of the industry is still paper today. And our ability to add new services, new products to our software suite will mean more value for our customers and more revenue to Blend in the long run. That's how we get deeper and deeper and eventually transform this industry like we aim to do.

In this case, in this quarter, we launched Blend Income, which if you've ever gotten a mortgage or a car loan and somebody needed to verify your income, it probably involves a paper pay stub or a paper tax return that you handed to somebody, who then read it, calculated something in the system, came back to you in some time after that, and gave you a lending decision. But there's a new way of doing things, to use data directly from the source and automatically parse that data, provided to the right systems, do the right calculations to get you that lending decision in real-time, which is what consumers want. So we now offer that. It's called Blend Income.

It works across different kinds of income, whether it's a simple W-2 income, standard borrower or, over time, a gig economy worker or a self-employed borrower. We're going to support the entire suite of types of income. And we just launched this product last quarter, and we already have 50 customers -- over 50 customers signed up to work on that. This is the benefit of having an integrated platform.

It means that, as we create more value, our customers can take advantage of it much more quickly than we could if these were point solutions that we were offering to them. So with Blend Income Verification, banking teams can now in real-time verify customers' income -- -- their customers' income and offer that modern experience that their consumers demand. A quick update on Title365. Title365 continues to run modestly ahead of plan for the third quarter and the full year and into next year.

And we've been able to retain customers with that team. We know that the goal long term is to turn this into a software business, an integrated business as part of the mortgage process. And so we're very focused on that. We want to transform this thing into a digital data-driven process like every modern industry.

And so we've been doing a lot of work on that. And the most critical near-term objective is the migration of Mr. Cooper, the largest mutual customer of these two platforms, Blend and Title365, onto the Blend Platform. We anticipate that going live in the Blend Platform next year in the second quarter.

And in addition, we expect to launch some pilots along the way with smaller customers to continue to prove out how this works together. And now I'll turn it over to Marc to go through the financial results and give you some updates on the company overall.

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

Thanks, Nima. Before I dive in, I have a few housekeeping items. First, with respect to our acquisition of Title365, our reported results for the third quarter include the financial results of Title365 on an actual basis. For ease of comparison, we've included the pro forma presentation of Blend's financial results for the third quarter, the first six months of 2020 as well as for the first six months of 2021 in the supplement to today's release.

Second, during the third quarter close process, we determined that we will present Title365 title revenue and related underwriting commissions on a net revenue basis, rather than on a gross revenue basis for those underwriting commissions, as Title365 had historically reported prior to the closing of our acquisition in June of this year. We have provided supplemental information regarding revenue and costs for Title365 historical periods, and we have updated our financial guidance for the full year 2021 to account for the Title365 title revenue being recognized net of those underwriting commissions. The change in presentation affects a portion of Title365 revenue and cost of revenue only with no effect on gross profit or net income or loss for either Title365 or the total company. In addition, following the acquisition of Title365, the company now operates in two reportable segments: Blend Platform and Title365.

Having heard from many of the investors and analysts who follow Blend, we've expanded our revenue and volume disclosures for the Blend Platform segment to reflect results from mortgage banking separately from consumer banking and marketplace and separately from professional services. This new banking revenue and transaction volume disclosure is included in the appendix of the supplement of today's earnings release. We have also included specific definitions and a historical time series on these metrics. But at a high level, Blend mortgage reflects revenues and volumes for mortgage transactions processed through our platform.

Consumer banking and marketplace revenues reflect consumer banking, ancillary product, and marketplace revenues. Consumer banking volumes reflect transactions from closed or funded consumer banking transactions and does not include transactions from ancillary products or marketplaces. Professional services revenue is also separately stated. Turning to the third quarter results.

Revenues totaled $89.6 million on a net revenue basis, up 221% year over year. Blend Platform segment revenue was $35.1 million, up $7.2 million or 26% year over year. And Title365 revenues, including underwriting commissions of $4.2 million now presented on a net basis, totaled $54.5 million. Growth in the Blend Platform segment was driven by consumer banking and marketplace revenue, which grew by 110% from $3.1 million to $6.6 million on a year-over-year basis.

On a sequential quarter basis, consumer banking and marketplace revenues grew at 18% or a CAGR of over 90%. Blend estimates that the total addressable market in consumer banking and marketplaces is significantly larger than the opportunity in domestic mortgage. As Nima discussed, third quarter growth in consumer banking and marketplaces resulted from the deepening of customer relationships, as well as the launch and rapid customer adoption of our new products. Continued focus on driving these two trends should enable Blend to demonstrate attractive growth for the foreseeable future as the U.S.

economy expands and the banking industry continues to digitize. Blend mortgage revenue totaled $27.3 million in the third quarter '21, up more than 14% year over year despite a contraction in industry origination volumes of more than 25% and as refi transactions have declined. This strong relative growth, driven by customer logo wins and market share gains, demonstrates Blend's ability to grow our mortgage volumes and revenues countercyclically despite market headwinds. With the current market share under 15%, Blend benefits from a significant amount of headroom to grow into the U.S.

mortgage market. As a result, we believe that Blend mortgage revenues can continue to achieve positive growth for the foreseeable future. Third quarter gross profit totaled $40.3 million, up 119% year over year, driven by the addition of operations from Title365, as well as strong growth in the Blend Platform segment. Title365 segment gross profit was $17.8 million.

Blend Platform segment gross profit was $22.5 million, up $4.1 million or 22% year over year. Non-GAAP gross profit was largely the same as the GAAP number in the third quarter. Cost of revenue increased by $39.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020, driven by an increase in Blend Platform cost of revenue of $3.1 million or 33%, an increase of $36.6 million due to the inclusion of the operations of Title365 for the first time this quarter. In our current stage of development, we are focusing on absolute gross profit dollar growth more than margin expansion.

We expect gross profit to improve in the future as we add more products to the platform and progress further on the Title365 integration. Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2021 were $110.9 million, compared to $33.7 million in the third quarter of 2020. Third quarter operating expenses included stock-based compensation charges totaling $33.8 million related to the stock option award with market-based performance targets, including expense recognized at our IPO. Non-GAAP operating expenses for the third quarter of 2021 were $61.7 million, compared to $32.6 million in the third quarter of 2020.

The largest driver of the increase in third quarter '21 non-GAAP operating expenses was an increase in our head count, which increased to more than 2,200 by the end of the quarter, including approximately 1,220 employees added from the Title365 acquisition. We continue to invest in our operations across the company, particularly in R&D, where we are focused on enhancements and future products, in sales and marketing to best serve our customers and in G&A to meet operating needs, support our growth, and continue to scale. These investments deepen the competitive moat we've built over the last nine years by strengthening our ability to innovate at a faster pace than our competitors and faster than in-house IT capabilities at the largest financial services firms. Our investment is reflected in a loss from operations for the third quarter of '21 of $70.5 million, compared with a loss from operations of $15.3 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Our net loss for the third quarter of '21 was $76.3 million, compared with a net loss of $15.2 million in the third quarter of 2020. Our net loss for the third quarter of '21 includes increased interest expense of $5.6 million versus none in the year-ago period, reflecting the cost of the term loan we issued to complete the acquisition of Title365. Non-GAAP loss from operations for the third quarter of '21 was $21.1 million, compared with $14.2 million in the third quarter of 2020. In the third quarter of '21, we incurred $1.6 million in integration costs related to our acquisition of Title365.

Now turning to our balance sheet. Our cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities at September 30, 2021, were $593.6 million, with total debt outstanding of 225 million, with the full amount of 25 million available on our revolving line of credit. Now let me turn to guidance. On the full year 2021 guidance as we disclosed in our press release this afternoon, strong growth in our consumer banking businesses through the first three quarters of the year and continued strength in our Blend Mortgage and Title365 revenues led us to increase our full year pro forma revenue guidance to between 358 and $368 million on a net revenue basis.

We have included a summary table to illustrate the boost in guidance from the previous period. As you can see, we are lifting the midpoint of our full year pro forma revenue outlook by $13 million. And to our new followers in the investment community, I'm looking forward to engaging with you and updating you on our progress in the years to come. And with that, I'll open the line up to your questions.

I'll also note that we opened up a method in this quarter for investors to ask questions in advance, so we will be incorporating these questions into the Q&A as well.

Questions & Answers:


[Operator instructions]

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

Thank you, and welcome, everyone. I'll start off with two questions from the platform that we opened prior to the earnings release. First question, any future plans to diversify into digital assets?

Nima Ghamsari -- Co-Founder and Head

Thanks, Marc. As more and more consumers around the United States invest in digital assets and whole digital assets, we've talked to our customers, banks, fintechs, credit unions, I'm starting to see there's an increased interest in potentially helping those consumers hold those assets. So we're looking at it. We're not actively doing anything.

But as we start to pay attention to the space, if it continues to grow, we'll consider building some of the software that helps power that for the institutions that we work with.

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

Excellent. Thanks, Nima. Second question, do you have any expansion plans for overseas or international markets?

Nima Ghamsari -- Co-Founder and Head

In terms of international, our primary focus is the United States. There's still a lot of paper in the United States. We're in the beginning of a very large digital transformation of financial services. And so our immediate focus and probably even next year focus is on the United States.

That being said, there is a need for similar technology abroad. And we have a lot of customers we've talked to or potential customers we talked to over time that might open us up to those other markets. Once our platform -- we feel our platform is ready and we feel like we have a really good pace in the United States. But for now, we're focused in the United States.

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

Great. Now I think we'll open it up to questions. I think the first question is from Bhavan Suri. Hey, Bhavan.

Bhavan Suri -- William Blair and Company -- Analyst

Thanks for taking may question. I appreciate it. A nice job. It's really good to see the growth.

I know we don't have all of it fleshed out but in some of the nonmortgage segment. I guess maybe I'll start there. I guess I'd love to think through about whose customers --

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

Yes, we can hear you, Bhavan.

Bhavan Suri -- William Blair and Company -- Analyst

Great. Yes. So when you see customers looking at the business, are you seeing them still primarily start mortgage? I understand it's the largest part of the business, but you had a really healthy growth on the consumer banking offerings. I guess the initial deals, are they still mortgages, an expansion to consumer banking? Or you're starting to see actually adoption of consumer banking as the first initial foray as a Blend customer?

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

So some interesting statistics as we looked at our customers and our product sales. Two-thirds of our customers now have more than one product. And what we're seeing is a bundling, mortgage plus close, mortgage plus insurance, mortgage plus now the new product that Nima mentioned, Blend Income Verification. And so we're seeing more and more of our customers buy multiple products and then quickly follow with additional products.

Bhavan Suri -- William Blair and Company -- Analyst

Got it. Got it. I guess them landing with which one they lean first, I guess, we'll get some clarity on that. Nima --

Nima Ghamsari -- Co-Founder and Head

Just wanted a quick note on that. This most recent quarter, Bhavan, was the first quarter where we signed a greater capacity of nonmortgage consumer banking products than mortgage products. So this quarter, it was a little bit of a flip on the script from what it used to be.

Bhavan Suri -- William Blair and Company -- Analyst

Got it. Got it. That's super helpful, actually. And then you mentioned something about you've got sort of a 10% unused share kind of a capacity within the existing installed base.

I guess how do you access that unused share? Is it simply a matter of more broadly rolling out the platform? Or are there specific investments you need to make to access that sort of using unused capacity?

Nima Ghamsari -- Co-Founder and Head

No, those are customers who have signed with us and volume that signed with us that could use our existing products as it is today. So you can see between H2 last year and H1 this year we grew our market share within mortgage by 6%, but then the rollout doesn't happen overnight. And so it's just more of us going through the motions of rolling out our customers, getting them standardized on the product over time and working with us to expand it beyond the initial rollout and pilot phases that they might go through. And so the KeyBank example is a great one, where it happened really fast.

Within a quarter, they were already live and doing real volume on our platform, but they're still not fully rolled out. We're still in the process of continuing to roll them out as we get more and more of their business on our platform.

Bhavan Suri -- William Blair and Company -- Analyst

Got it. Got it. It's almost like a captive market. Got it.

Appreciate it, guys. Thanks for taking my questions, and nice job on the growth rates there.

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

Thank you. The second question is from Michael, Michael Turrin from Wells.

Michael Turrin -- Wells Fargo Securities -- Analyst

Thanks for bearing with me while I got the mute function off of my phone. I wanted to stick with the consumer banking for a moment because I think the added disclosure is certainly helpful and appreciated. We see the increase in transactions and what that looks like from a mix perspective, trending toward 20% of platform revenue. Are there expectations you can share for how that could trend going forward over time? Is there either an optimal mix you see or anything you can add just around your existing customer base that, that mix could shift toward between consumer and mortgage over time?

Nima Ghamsari -- Co-Founder and Head

I think there's a massive opportunity in consumer. About one-thirds of our customers have at least one consumer banking product today. And what we're seeing is an uptick on both marketplace and additional consumer banking products, very differently from what happened even in 2020 or 2019. So it's -- I mean, for me, it's -- I don't know that I could say if there's an optical -- there's an optimal mix.

I just think that consumer banking is a huge opportunity. And the component parts that we built over the last nine years are very much applicable to our forays into consumer banking.

Michael Turrin -- Wells Fargo Securities -- Analyst

That's helpful. And, Nima, you mentioned the new income verification product and 50 customers signed. Anything else you can add on how much of the base that could attach to or address relative to the 300-plus customer logos you currently have and maybe what that does from a price perspective for the overall model? Thank you.

Nima Ghamsari -- Co-Founder and Head

Sure. So we priced the product, it's a similar order of magnitude price to our base mortgage platform in terms of the added price per unit that you would expect to see as we get it rolled out. And it applies to pretty much everyone. I think almost every consumer who gets a loan, a mortgage, car loan, personal loan, some of them don't need proof of verified income, but almost every mortgage does.

And so that's a good example of a natural add-on where we create more platform value and our customers want that platform value. Actually, it's over 50 customers. And I think that helps explain how our growth in our nonmortgage businesses are growing, expanding so quickly. And so yes, so I think we'll continue to see that grow and expand over time and probably -- I would say it's probably our fastest-growing product that we launched here at Blend.

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

And there's only -- a public announcement was only in October -- was actually the third week of October.

Michael Turrin -- Wells Fargo Securities -- Analyst

Now it seems like a natural extension. Thank you. I appreciate the color.

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

You bet. The third question is from Terry Tillman at Truist. Hey, Terry.

Unknown speaker

This is actually Joe on for Terry. Thanks for taking the question.

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance


Unknown speaker

So how has the progress been with the low-code journey builder? Just wanted to confirm how that's been trending. I'm not sure if there were any comments on it in the prepared remarks.

Nima Ghamsari -- Co-Founder and Head

We think of that as our base consumer banking platform. And so that is the thing that's helping us grow. We have live customers in production on that. And we just had our executive forum we call Blend Forum, where we had a bunch of our customers here together with us the last two days, and it was a hit of the shelf.

The idea of being able to have all the power of the Blend Platform and the flexibility of being able to make it your own journey over time, it's something that can apply across their entire businesses, and they love that. And it helps us also work with the CIOs who want to have that control but also have the flexibility as well as all the things that we've been able to invest in over the past two years. So it's an incredibly powerful product, and we're getting a lot of uptake from our customers in wanting that.

Unknown speaker

That's super helpful. And then just around Blend close, is that like a material percentage of the mortgage revenue right now? Is it like 5% or 10%? Or is it much less than that right now? And what do you think that can become over time?

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

Just for clarity, Joe, the Blend closed product is in consumer banking and marketplace. So mortgage is purely the mortgage times the number of funded mortgage loans. And so all of our other ancillary products are included in that second line. So that's part of the reason you're seeing the growth is because of the uptake of those ancillary products.

Nima Ghamsari -- Co-Founder and Head

But to answer your question about where we see that growing, it's still early days, but it's also a very fast-growing product, and we expect it to be -- continue to grow into a material part of our revenue going into next year.

Unknown speaker

Thank you.

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

Fantastic. Karl from UBS.

Karl Keirstead -- UBS

Great. Thanks very much. Maybe two for me. Marc, you mentioned that you think the mortgage revenue stream will remain in terms of a positive growth territory for the foreseeable future.

That's encouraging. We, for one, were in the spirit of mortgage volumes being down, modeling your mortgage revenues down in 4Q, 1Q. So it's encouraging that you're not envisioning that. I just wanted to press a little bit on why.

Is it because the decline in mortgage volumes is turning out to be a little bit less than you expected? Or is it that you're having more success on new logos and share gains? Or maybe it's a little bit of both.

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

I think it's a little bit of both. I mean we have had a lot of success in continuing the rollout that captured market share. Customers are on the adoption curve and just having a lot of success with Blend, a high ROI with Blend. So they're motivated to roll it out, and we're motivated to help them.

The markets are also -- the refi volume has not declined as much as many people predicted.

Nima Ghamsari -- Co-Founder and Head

Just as a point of reference, the markets were down. We estimate the market was down over 25% year over year, and our revenues were up in the Blend Platform segment over 25%. So we -- that's the kind of trend that we want to be able to show is that we can continue our growth rate, and that shows a pretty high growth rate normalized for volumes.

Karl Keirstead -- UBS

Got it. OK. And then my second question, just in terms of the core Blend Platform, was there any positive impact from any Title365 migrations? Or was it pretty clean? And when -- is it 2Q next year? I think you mentioned, Nima, that we should see some of the migration boost such that Blend Platform might start to see a bump from those migrations. Maybe you could update us on the timing of that.

Tim Mayopoulos -- President

This is Tim. Thanks for the question. So I think it's fair to say that the numbers that you saw for this quarter were not the result of migrations. The single biggest mutual customer between Blend and Title365 is Mr.

Cooper. I think, as Nima mentioned in his opening remarks, we expect them to go live on the Blend Platform in Q2 of next year. We do have some pilots that we're running with other customers over the coming months, but I think it will be next year when you start to see real migration. And this quarter didn't reflect much of that.

We're building the integrations. That's going to find that the technology integrations. The rest of the integration process is coming along just as we had expected. So it's all going as we thought it would.

But I think you'll start to see the migration from Title365 to the Blend software platform in 2022.

Karl Keirstead -- UBS

Wonderful. Thanks for the clarity.

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

Great. Next, we have Josh from KeyBanc.

Josh Beck -- KeyBanc Capital Markets -- Analyst

Thank you, team, for taking the question. A lot of good data that you've shared, so I just wanted to say I appreciate that. I wanted to talk a little bit about the market share statistics that you provided. And it's very helpful, obviously, to see kind of the untapped opportunity there.

Just curious, like when you think about maybe the pipeline and the conversations that you're having with customers, obviously, you have some nice wins as well, just how you see that evolving over time? Just curious if there's some type of limit maybe to the market share or if you just feel like, based on the pipeline, you're just going to continue to add customers and there's just going to be a lot more untapped opportunity in that chart.

Nima Ghamsari -- Co-Founder and Head

Well, if you saw H2 of last year to H1 of this year, we grew market share by more than 6%, almost 7%, which was pretty significant gains for such a short amount of time. We signed some really big customers. We expect that there's additional -- that was our best half year ever, I think, if I look back at history, and we expect that we have still a lot of headroom beyond that. So we'll have probably some more wins we'll announce over time.

And then on top of that, the near-term opportunity is great. I mean a 10% that's untapped within our current customer base, it's like the most short-term pipeline. It's already signed. They want to work with us to roll it out.

They're already working with us to roll out. It's a matter of execution. And so continued good execution, we'll get that rolled out onto our platform. But now we don't see any short-term headwinds in terms of overall market share possibility.

Josh Beck -- KeyBanc Capital Markets -- Analyst

OK. That's very helpful. And then I wanted to also ask about the market adjusted net retention. Obviously, these are very good metrics in the 140 to 180% range.

I'm just curious, as we go into next year, what type of visibility does that provide you from effectively growth from existing customers versus the dependence on new bookings? So just kind of curious how that translates into visibility as we start to think about 2022.

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

There's so much opportunity in our existing installed base that we believe in really strong net retention numbers. There's -- we're not seeing any declines. We've tried to extract the market impact from our net retention numbers so that we make it as clear as possible to everybody that we're seeing this underlying core growth in our customers, and they're adding products and they're adding value and then we're partnering with them in that way.

Josh Beck -- KeyBanc Capital Markets -- Analyst

Very helpful. Thanks.

Marc Greenberg -- Head of Finance

You bet. Operator, I think there aren't any other questions in the queue. You can go ahead and close the call.
