5 Game-Changing Benefits Of Blockchain In Real Estate (Part 2)

3. Cost-effective Process

A major benefit of using blockchain in real estate is the reduction of intermediaries, significantly cutting down transaction fees and processing costs. Given that real estate is laden with an overwhelming number of intermediaries, from lawyers to realtors, blockchain effectively eliminates the middlemen involved in facilitating a real estate deal.

As the blockchain provides the solution to the long-winded process and extortionate fees typically associated with traditional real estate, deals can now be completed in a reliable, automatic, and swift process. And, with the use of smart contracts, everything, such as listings and legal documents, can now be contained within lines of code, making the process even more seamless.

Overall, blockchain integration in real estate ensures that listings go through a rigorous verification process, to cut costs, streamline transactions and prevent scams from occurring.

4. Greater Transparency

Speaking of which, ever wonder what causes real estate scams and corruption to begin with? A lack of transparency! For that reason, transparency and data accessibility is one area that the decentralized blockchain network effectively improves, as property information is not only stored but is also visible and verifiable by anyone on the network. 

This high level of transparency and security generates an equally high level of trust for investors, as blockchain-powered real estate investments are more secure than those carried out the traditional route. Since this data is available to everyone, blockchain technology makes it nearly impossible to alter or manipulate the data stored, making blockchain networks immutable. Moreover, it also helps participants keep track of the transactions at a glance, so the transactions are transparent.

5. Increased Liquidity

The tokenization of real estate inevitably makes the whole asset class more liquid. Historically, real estate assets are not particularly liquid, as investors or homeowners would need to sell their property to liquidate their assets, all in an overly time-consuming closing process.

Again, that was before real estate could be tokenized. Since digital tokens on the blockchain represent ownership of a property, owners could actually sell their tokens and avoid the hassle that comes with selling a house the traditional way. Instead of weeks or even months, it’s theoretically possible for investors and owners to cash in on their tokenized real estate in mere moments.

In A Nutshell

Blockchain is changing the future of real estate transactions to be more secure, transparent, and efficient. By simplifying and streamlining the entire real estate transaction process from start to finish, buying and selling a property will become much faster, easier, and cost-effective once this technology is fully integrated.

Blockchain technology has opened up real estate investment opportunities by offering fractional ownership in tokenized real estate assets, which can be traded on blockchain-powered networks. Additionally, smart contracts automate many of the tasks associated with a real estate transaction. And, considering traditional methods of property ownership are often vulnerable to fraud and errors, blockchain helps offer a tamper-proof way to store this information.

Ultimately, blockchain has enhanced data transparency and liquidity in the real estate industry. Though it will take time for blockchain technology to be fully accepted into the real estate industry, as more and more people realize its potential, blockchain is set to revolutionize the way we buy, sell and invest in real estate.
