The Reawakening Of Real Estate Tokenization: Why Businesses Should Take Note   

Real Estate Tokenization

Aurigraph DLT offers the secure, safe, quick, and trusted tokenization of Real Estate at a low cost and with a fixed transactions fee. Assigning monetizable value and automating business value thorough ActiveContracts™ disrupts the status quo by opening several new avenues of value creation. A Real Estate asset may be monetized in a few minutes through Open Data integration from the single sources of truth. Aurigraph RET is the only platform that generates a Digital Twin from Open Data sourced from the Single Sources of Truth for the underlying asset. The owner of the underlying asset needs to be verified through KYC. Third party verification by an assessor/valuer lends credibility to the tokenized asset while ascertaining value for the token. The monetary value of the Asset may be managed by ActiveContracts™ for value creation and transfer using tokens for fractionalization, Account Receivables, cross-border payments and other use cases with programmable currency. A Real Estate Token on Aurigraph will need an Assessor to certify the Digital Twin is the true copy of the underlying asset and the corresponding Real Estate Token.  Aurigraph Finverse provides the white labeled RET marketplace and Token custody with independent supervision, optionally.

Real Estate Tokenization (RET)

Real estate tokenization is a promising innovation with the potential to shake up the traditional industry. Real estate tokenization offers an innovative approach to investing in and managing property by leveraging DLT technology. Here are some of its key use cases and benefits 

Fractional Ownership

Traditionally, real estate investment requires significant capital, often limiting participation to high-net-worth individuals. Tokenization allows for fractional ownership, where a property is divided into digital tokens. This enables investors to buy smaller portions, making real estate investment more accessible to a wider audience.

Increased Liquidity

Real estate is typically considered an illiquid asset due to the complexities involved in buying and selling properties. Tokenization creates a more fluid marketplace. Tokens representing ownership can be easily traded on secondary markets, like stocks, increasing liquidity for investors.

Real Estate Collateral Tokenization

Collateral tokenization is a process that leverages DLT to represent ownership of assets used as security for loans or other financial agreements. These tokens function as Digital Twins for the underlying real-world asset, enabling a more efficient and transparent collateral management system. Collateral tokenization offers Traditional assets like real estate, invoices, or even securities can be tokenized, creating a digital representation on a DLT. This allows for easier divisibility and tracking of ownership. The Assets need to be linked to their only source of truth. For example, in case of properties, the data should be current and bound to local government’s data electronically, to maintain the integrity of  the data. Collateral transfer and management are faster and automated through smart contracts on the Aurigraph Finverse, eliminating manual paperwork and intermediaries. Tokenization can unlock the potential of previously illiquid assets like real estate to be used as collateral. Fractional ownership through tokens makes them more accessible to a wider range of lenders. Aurigraph DLT provides a secure and transparent record of ownership and transaction history for Collateral tokens, reducing risk of fraud and errors. Tokenized Collateral helps in reducing costs to both lenders and borrowers. Borrowers with illiquid assets can gain access to credit by using tokenized collateral. Tokenization opens doors for innovative financial products like decentralized lending platforms. However, Clear regulatory frameworks are needed to ensure the legitimacy and enforceability of tokenized collateral. Integrating tokenized collateral with traditional financial systems requires API integration with the single source of the truth about the credentials of the underlying asset. By increasing efficiency, transparency, and accessibility, it has the potential to unlock new opportunities for lenders and borrowers alike.

Regulatory Landscape 

The US regulatory landscape for tokenized real estate is still evolving. Despite the lack of definitive regulations, there are a growing number of companies in the USA actively involved in real estate tokenization. These companies offer platforms for fractional ownership, tokenized offerings, and related services. For the USA, the potential benefits of real estate tokenization are like those seen globally. Increased accessibility for investors, improved liquidity, and streamlined processes could be significant advantages.

Valuation Challenges

Traditionally, real estate valuation is a complex process. Tokenization adds an additional layer, as the value of the tokens themselves may not directly reflect the underlying asset's value. New methods for valuing tokenized real estate will need to be established. Aurigraph Finverse recommends using incumbent valuation and assessor systems directly integrated with Aurigraph Finverse 

Liquidity Risks

While increased liquidity is a potential benefit, it is not guaranteed. There needs to be a sufficient investor base and interest to ensure a healthy secondary market for the tokens.

Legal and Compliance Issues 

Tokenization raises new legal questions around ownership rights, taxation, and regulatory compliance. Clear legal frameworks need to be developed to address these issues. The regulatory uncertainty and the need for technological advancements remain challenges in the USA as well. Additionally, gaining acceptance from traditional real estate players and establishing clear valuation methods are crucial for wider adoption. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) plays a significant role. How they classify tokens representing real estate ownership will significantly impact regulations.
