ShelterZoom has gone live in the US with a promise to reduce the paperwork in the real estate industry by bringing in Ethereum-powered blockchain real estate platform.
The platform is currently live in the US with global launch expected sometime in first quarter of 2018. The new platform is being tested by New York City-based Cyrus Charter, the first real estate listing customer, and 10 customers who are currently testing it under beta.
ShelterZoom online offer and acceptance platform has been designed to streamline the process of making and accepting real estate offers, reducing paperwork and improving transparency of buying and selling. The system has been built to the Real Estate Standards Organization standards. The platform comes with a number of tools including a dashboard, the Offer NOW widget, and a mobile app which is available on Google Play and iTunes, enabling buyers and agents to instantly submit offers from online real estate listings with just a few clicks or taps.
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 Jan. 31, 2018. All users can use the dashboards free of subscription charge. ShelterZoom charges $8 for each offer submission following the free beta period ending Feb. 28, 2018.
Users can 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.
Canada, Australia, Europe, and countries in the Middle East are set to go live on the platform in the first quarter of 2018.
