Blockchain in real estate revamps how his market operates

Platforms for trading and online marketplaces

With the advancement of technology, internet platforms and markets have changed how we see real estate. Sites like Zillow and RedFin have made transactions more accessible and practical for everyone interested in investing, especially while the world is under lockdown due to a pandemic.

There Isn’t Any Need For Intermediaries

Tal Shelef, Realtor and Co-Founder of Condo Wizard, is one of several industry professionals who believe blockchain real estate could disrupt how transactions are conducted. He believes “middlemen” would be the first to be impacted. “Blockchain is certain to disrupt the real estate sector or any industry for that matter,” Shelef adds, “since it will eliminate the confusing and expensive process of bargaining with a market intermediary.”

Real Estate Is Transformed Into A Liquid Asset

The ability to tokenize real estate increases the liquidity of the whole asset class. Real estate assets were not liquid before tokenization, and they are still not particularly liquid now. Investors or homeowners who want to get into the capital behind an asset must first consider selling it. Once a selection is made, the asset is offered to potential purchasers and it will go through a closing procedure.

Fractional Ownership Is Possible With Blockchain

Not only does the tokenization of real estate provide owners and investors with faster access to funds, but it also lowers the entrance barrier for potential owners and investors. It is no longer essential to spend an excessive quantity of money on a single investment thanks to tokens. On the other hand, tokens allow buyers to engage in partial ownership. If five tokens represent an apartment building’s equitable stake.

Cost-cutting

Real estate blockchain apps can operate as their escrow on their own. Using the blockchain to conduct transactions might eliminate the need for several professional businesses that specialize in facilitating transactions. As a result, those who transact on the blockchain won’t have to pay the excessive costs that have come to be associated with escrow services.

Documents that have been digitized

Smart contracts may work on blockchain real estate since it is a digital platform. Smart contracts, as their names imply, are superior rather than regular contracts in practically every regard. Blockchain can “establish, authenticate, and audit contracts in real-time, across the globe, and without the intervention of a middleman,” according to Nick Clare, Head of Project Management have instructions embedded in the transaction.

Conclusion

Blockchain for real estate is a field that requires more global exposure. Corruption and illegal activity abound in this industry. However, the significance of this industry is at an all-time high right now. As a result, without suitable norms in place, this sector will not thrive and eradicate corruption for good. It’s time for a change, and blockchain is more than capable of providing it.
