Blockchain Benefits In The Real Estate Sector
The Blockchain has come to revolutionize the real estate market, above all, making it more transparent and secure. There is no doubt that blockchain, or chain of blocks, is a buzzword, but, exactly, what are we referring to and why is it positive?
What benefits does the Blockchain bring?
This technology consists of all users having a public record of real estate transactions. That is, before acquiring a property, the buyer has access to the building’s history, such as who its former owner was, how much it was sold for, or at what price it was rented.
Another benefit of the blockchain is that it is a system open to all users. In other words, this technology saves time and money both in lawyers and in registration procedures, because it speeds up the process. It is no longer necessary to go to a notary to know the deed of a property, since all the information will always be available.
Lastly, the system works in a decentralized manner, working on millions of computers at the same time, thus preventing transactions from being hacked. In other words, if hackers attack a computer or a limited network of parts, the entire network does not go down. Technology resists, since its strength lies in that it is not in a single point.
Without forgetting that if by not depending on a third party, for example a bank, your commissions and waiting time also end.
Blockchain commercial use
Until now, private banks, the central banks of each country or platforms such as PayPal acted as intermediaries. But the blockchain is disruptive since it avoids going through these mediators.
The commercial use of the blockchain is on the rise. For example, in 2016 Barclays made the first commercial financial contract using this technology. The startup Everledger uses the open log book technique to check whether a diamond is ethically sourced.
Finally, the Mycelia platform is used to pay musicians directly without going through record companies, while the artists control how their music is used.
Thanks to the fact that in the blockchain, users have an “accounting ledger” for each of the purchases, no third party, such as a bank, the central bank on duty, or a government can modify the registered transactions.
The new real estate transactions on Blockchain
Blockchain networks are already being used in the sale of real estate How to buy a house with blockchain? This is the process:
- Buyer and seller generate a smart contract or smart contract, to understand each other, a private and secure communication channel, within the public blockchain network.
- The seller certifies the ownership of the building with a digital document.
- The buyer identifies himself and deposits the money in a trust account.
- As soon as the money is deposited and the private identifications of both parties are provided, the system performs the transfer instantly.
- The entire operation is recorded on the public network, turning the rest of the users into witnesses.
Real estate transactions with Blockchain are fast and are only executed when all the conditions of the contract are met. If the money is not deposited, the payment is not made; that yes, it would be registered that it was not paid.
The only thing necessary is that both parties have digital identities, without having to sign any physical contract, or wait for the bureaucracy. In other words, with the blockchain, the current paper and handwritten signature can be replaced, reducing the time of the entire purchase process.
Types of real estate contracts with Blockchain
This technology is already applied in Real Estate to acquire real estate. For example, India, Ukraine, the Republic of Georgia, or even Sweden already have plans to buy and sell real estate using blockchain technology.
The Swedish case started in 2016 with the union of the national property registry office, Lantmäteriet, with the blockchain company, ChromaWay. In a legal and harmonized framework with the entire European Union would still be needed to implement this technology, the only sure thing is that it is the future.
As you can see, blockchain is a technology that turns commerce into a more transparent and secure transaction, in addition, it has countless applications, not only in real estate contracts.
