NFTs x Real Estate: Part 3

Metaverse

Since then, there has been significant progress in the market with platforms such as Decentraland and The Sandbox selling the smallest chunks of land for 3.7 and 3.46 eth, respectively. It is said that The Sanbox is the largest virtual world in terms of transaction volumes, with over 65,000 transactions in virtual land, summing up about $350 million alone in 2021.

In the metaverse, platforms such as Realm.art allow users to partake in the same activities they would in real life. Users are able to design their avatars to represent themselves in the metaverse and they can also decorate their homes as well as meet new friends and attend events in the metaverse.

Virtual real estate works quite similarly to the real world. When a metaverse has significant traction and activity, its worth increases as well. Virtual developers and investors alike pay attention to areas that grab more attention and activity, densifying the real estate pool, creating demand, causing properties in the metaverse to fluctuate in value based on the activities of users.

Like the real world, the metaverse experiences scarcity as well. There is a limited amount of digital land plots that are built and sold in the NFT marketplace, hence creating scarcity, allowing sellers to hike up prices for highly valued properties and land in the metaverse. Buyers can expect to pay hefty prices in the emerging virtual land market.

Metaverse meets Real World

As a mobile first metaverse using AR technology and integrated chat systems, the Realm metaverse business model is aimed at creating a better world by leveraging engagement in the digital economy to drive real world projects that directly benefit humanity and the planet.

Similarly, Bricktrade is on a mission to not only be the one-stop solution to purchasing real estate but it is also looking to be a place for anyone to come to to experience and scale in Realm’s metaverse.

With this brilliant opportunity for property investors to own digital twins of their purchased real-world assets in the metaverse, both Bricktrade and Realm.art are at the forefront of the property market revolution.

NFT mortgages

Typically, an NFT mortgage allows homeowners to trade a lien (rights) to their property for an NFT that will signify a portion of the house value which will then be used as collateral throughout the DeFi space or the lender’s platform.

Due to the use of blockchain technology that provides transactional certainty, NFT mortgages are generally more secure. Deals can also be completed much quicker and smoother with this automated approach and convenience.

NFT mortgages are still in their infancy, but they are likely to become significant in the near future.
