Blockchain is one of the latest innovations of the technological advancements. Blockchain is highly popular in the world due to the advanced capabilities such as security, transparency, high levels of privacy, Decentralised network and infrastructure, Individual control of data, visibility and traceability. All the transactions and changes in the blockchain network can be traced to the owner of the change along with the time stamp of the change. Hence blockchain is widely used by people and organizations throughout the world. Over the course of this blog, we will look at one such industry and how blockchain is used to improve the industry. Real estate industry is one of the most lucrative industries in the world. Millions of properties are bought and sold on a very regular basis.

It is considered to be a billion dollar industry. With such lucrative opportunity available, it is filled with people and organizations who are looking to take advantage of the situation and make a profit. Every real estate transaction has 3 major parties involved i.e. the buyer, the seller and the various middlemen in the transaction. This reduces the transparency in the transaction and adds additional cost to the transaction. However, blockchain can be used to rectify this issue and create a transparent and a direct system between the buyer and the seller thereby eliminating the middlemen in the transaction.

How does a Smart Contract Work

One such tool under the blockchain domain is smart contracts. Smart contract is a computer program which monitors and controls the transactional protocols. A smart contract monitors and executes the terms of the transaction based on events and actions undertaken by both the parties. Solutions for the real estate industry by Speqto Technologies come with inbuilt smart contracts technology which connects the buyer directly to the seller there by eliminating the need for any kind of middlemen and unwanted expenses through the middlemen.

Any two individuals who wants to engage in a real estate transaction would use smart contracts and can follow the following steps to reach their goals easily.

1. The seller digitizes the legal documents of the house for the review of the potential buyer.

2. An interested buyer takes a virtual tour or even a real tour of the house.

3. When the buyer is interested, both the parties undertake the legal work related to the transaction.

4. The first step in the transaction is drawing a contract to dictate the terms of the agreement and the transaction.

5. Using various templates, either party can draw up a smart contract.

6. Both the parties engage in negotiations for the transactions

7. Once the negotiation is complete, one of the parties modifies the smart contract to meet the new terms.

8. The system records and time stamps the changes to the smart contract for review.

9. The buyer can review other property related documents through the same smart contract.

10. The financial transaction is initiated.

11. When the transaction is complete based on the terms of the smart contract, the deed of the property is transferred to the buyer automatically.

12. The system and the smart contract records all the details of the transaction for review at any point in time by either one of the parties or 3rd party for verification.
