What are NFTs and how are the going to
This is a question that more and more people are us asking as this new technology continues to make waves in various industries, such as real estate.
NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are cryptographic assets that represent unique items. In the world of real estate, this could mean anything from a particular house to a specific acre of land.
Because of the blockchain technology that underlies NFTs, people can trade these tokens securely and transparently online without the need for third-party intermediaries. This could revolutionize real estate transactions as we know them.
One of the key benefits of NFTs is that they can represent a property in a much more secure and transparent way than traditional methods.
For example, imagine you want to buy a house. In the past, you would have had to go through a real estate agent, who would act as an intermediary between you and the seller.
The agent would handle all the paperwork and ensure that both parties were getting what they wanted. However, with NFTs, this process could actually be done 100% online.
You would purchase a token representing the house you want to buy and then send it to the seller. Both you and the seller would have access to a secure blockchain ledger. From there, you could check the details of the house and ensure that everything was as it should be. You could still have it inspected and even walkthrough it if you like. If there were any problems, you could simply go back to the person you were buying from and work it out.
The NFT would be held in escrow or a crypto intermediary like Propy. Once, all parties have agreed, funds are instantly released via a Smart Contract and the seller has funds and the buyer is now the official holder of the title of the property (typically in the form of an LLC that held the property).
Everything is not only recorded on the blockchain, but your Proof of Ownership can also be published on the actually deed of trust that is filed with the local country records.
This could be done with other types of real estate as well. For example, you could buy an NFT representing an acre of land and then sell that NFT to another person instantaneously. You wouldn’t need any intermediaries because everything would happen on the blockchain, and the buyer and seller would both have access to a complete record of all transactions involving that particular piece of land.
These are just a few examples of how several people have started to sell property as an NFT.
We are still in the infant stage of NFT’s and real estate but I assure you that in twelve months time if you local realtor doesn’t know how to do these types of transactions they will find themselves out of the job very quickly.
NFTs really could revolutionize real estate in much the same way that cryptocurrency is revolutionizing currency, and it’s especially promising when you consider how difficult buying property can be in some parts of the world.
There are a number of other benefits that NFTs have over traditional real estate transactions. For example, they could reduce or even eliminate fraud as all transactions would be recorded online in a transparent way that would be nearly impossible to tamper with.
They could also reduce the costs associated with real estate transactions since there would be no third-party agents acting as an intermediary. These two factors combined could allow for a much greater amount of international investments to flow into real estate and other types of property.
There is still a long way to go before we see widespread use of NFT’s in real estate.
This is just one example of how NFTs could change the real estate industry.
There are many other possibilities, such as using NFTs for property rentals and leases. We will save that for another article. The bottom line is that NFTs have the potential to revolutionize how we interact with real estate online.
They provide a more secure, transparent, and efficient way.
This scares most people in the real estate industry who have been doing the same thing over and over for 30 years. But for the younger generations we are excited to finally make the home buying process fun and exciting again.
