New York City-based blockchain focused company ShelterZoom, announced plans for a next-generation, one-stop real estate marketplace. The marketplace, set to go live in Q1 2019, will incorporate a proprietary blockchain platform built for real estate transactions and services (title, mortgage, legal, home inspection, moving, etc.) as the first step in a planned rollout across other industries like financial services, import/export and supply chain.
“With this next-generation, blockchain-powered marketplace, we are taking the real estate industry into technology’s future,” Chao Cheng-Shorland, ShelterZoom’s CEO and co-founder said. “Our current platform is already helping agents, buyers, sellers and renters make the big leap to technology’s present, and we’re excited to initiate another industry sea change in early 2019.”
ShelterZoom’s new ecosystem will be a pioneering deal and service marketplace to allow instant deal making, interactive contract management, speedy closing and convenient service acquisition.
“The real estate industry is rapidly changing and the underlying technology platforms that once served our industry are too inefficient for the future,” David Mussari, Managing Partner at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Professional Realty. “The innovation that ShelterZoom has built using blockchain is going to vastly improve the way we all do business. We are excited to take part in their beta testing and do our small part in helping to move our industry forward.”
