What Role Does Blockchain Essay in the Real Estate Sector?

By Enterprise Technology Review | Tuesday, November 26, 2019

The features of blockchain make it apt for application in the real estate sector, where this technology can create trust and transparency as the norm. 

FREMONT, CA: Blockchain technology is driving a real estate revolution. Blockchain solutions are dictating the transformation in buying, selling, and other allied services like property insurance. The real estate industry had come to exist under the influence of a few redundant players, like agents, brokers, and mortgage lenders. This web of third-party players resulted in inefficiency and rising expenses. Other limitations, such as errors in documentation, inaccurate sales tracking systems, a dearth of transparency, and excessive fees hinder the real estate business.

Blockchain technology works by encrypting records using digital ledgers to store vital information. The ability to view and store data in a blockchain simultaneously allows the real estate sector to manage its business processes better. Tweaking with information in a blockchain network is not possible since the encryption makes data immutable. Blockchain also provides smart contracts, which need all the involved parties to comply, and after that, it self-executes. By taking care of legal factors, smart contracts make the system transparent. With the transparency of that blockchain brings, both home buyers and developers can benefit.

Many countries have begun executing blockchain for land registrations. The chief reason behind this is to make property transactions trustworthy, transparent, and faster. The blockchain solutions also provide the market with an enhanced system and better liquidity.  Fractionalization is a new approach that lets individuals own units or tokens. With blockchain, fractionalization can increase liquidity further. This also impacts the market as fractionalization brings people to trade and invest in the real estate market.

Apart from enriching processes in the real estate sector, blockchain has the potential to give real estate greater transparency and efficiency.
