Vacation rental houses. Parking spots. Even dream homes. Before long, they'll all be purchased on a blockchain. In fact, blockchain-based real estate is already gaining popularity as a way for buyers, sellers and investors to interact with each other and learn about properties. 

But why is blockchain poised to give the real estate industry such a significant leg up? First and foremost, by leveraging Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), it increases trust through greater transparency. And in real-estate, trust — of a website, an agent, a listing — is imperative. Blockchain also expedites contract processes, saves time and reduces costs.

Blockchain Real Estate

Blockchain’s inherent system of trust makes it the ideal technology for real estate. Real estate companies all over the globe are using blockchain’s smart contracts and ledger abilities to transparently and efficiently facilitate renting, buying, investing and even lending.

Because the daily rate of real estate transactions is so immense, a common database of leases and purchases is more necessary than ever. Blockchain can provide that. Upgrading the traditional Multiple Listing Service (MLS) database to a blockchain-based would create a far more transparent ledger system where brokers and agents could see the entire transaction history of a property.
