Blockchain Real Estate Platform Launched By ShelterZoombr>
Blockchain real estate platform ShelterZoom has gone live in the US, with global launch expected sometime in the first quarter of 2018.
Based on ethereum, ShelterZoom provides a dashboard, a widget, and a mobile app enabling buyers and buyer agents to instantly submit offers from any online real estate listing. ShelterZoom’s Offer NOW widget and platform transform the real estate offer process by providing realtors, buyers, sellers, agents and Multiple Listing Service (MLS) organizations, with inter-operability and transparency, creating faster deals and better outcomes.
The platform allows users to track, aggregate, accept, reject, or counter offers in real time, while buyers and agents can track offer statuses on their ShelterZoom dashboards. All parties to a transaction can receive push or text notifications throughout the process and chat with one another immediately, according to established protocols via an interface.
The new platform is being tested by New York City-based property and land company Cyrus Charter, the first real estate listing customer. In addition, 10 customers have begun a beta test. ShelterZoom also recently announced its first WordPress real estate theme affiliate, Estalik, and its first Australian company, Arena Property Agents. Preparations are also underway for the company’s second platform, Rent NOW, a rental real estate platform. The Rent NOW beta is planned for March.
ShelterZoom is already accepting sign-ups for the Offer NOW widget, which can be integrated with any affiliate website featuring real estate listings with a few lines of code, at no cost to those who sign up before January 31. The company will charge $8 for each offer submission following the free beta period ending February 28.
“As the online shopping market has matured, consumers have become increasingly willing to purchase high-value items online, and real estate is no exception,” said Amir Allen Alishahi, co-founder and director of ShelterZoom. “As such, migrating a greater number of real estate offers to the online realm is a logical and natural next step.”
