Abstract
Worldwide real estate assets comprise nearly 60% of the value of all global
assets, including equities, bonds and gold. The fact that the value of global real
estate exceeds by almost one-third the total value of all globally traded equities
and securitized debt instruments highlights the important role it plays in
economies worldwide.
At the same time, this market lacks both transparency and efficiency, especially
compared to publicly traded equities and debt securities. Evaluation of a real
estate asset requires in-depth market information which only market players
have. This creates asymmetries in the market and leads to inefficiencies.
Urbit’s mission is to create transparency and efficiency in the real estate market.
As of today, Urbit has already a product which offers ad-hoc evaluation of any
real estate object in the Spanish market. We developed a powerful data
collection engine which gathers information from various publicly available data
sources and combines them...

Disclaimer
You are reading Urbit’s White Paper where the whole project is explained in
functional terms. You will find additional info in the Technical White Paper,
which explains the technology in detail.
This document has been developed by the Urbit team and describes a
decentralized technology used for the consultation, management and assessment
of the real estate assets via intelligent contracts by means of the Blockchain
Technology and the Real Estate Big Data.
This document has solely informative purpose. Under no circumstances can it be
interpreted as an offer related to sale of shares or securities.
We provide the description of the technology according to our knowledge and
development level. We hope you find it worthwhile. Nevertheless, there are
certain compromises we cannot fulfill because of the technology we are
applying. Neither Urbit nor Urbit’s distributors can offer guarantees regarding
the Real Estate Big Data software, mostly because we are still on the initial ...

Objective & Vision
At Urbit we believe Real Estate market needs more transparency and therefore
we are working hard to build the biggest online service and real estate
management platform in the world. Our core vision is to create an ecosystem
which offers and manages all the information to which any person, company or
institution needs to have access to (price valuations, interests in selling, buying
or renting) and also to link all this information together in order to offer
transparent, safe and high quality real estate services with no intermediaries.
Market Analysis
Market Size
The real estate market dwarfs all other asset classes.
Worldwide real estate
assets comprise nearly 60% of the value of all global assets
, including equities,
bonds and gold. The fact that the value of global real estate exceeds by almost
one-third the total value of all globally traded equities and securitized debt
instruments highlights the important role it plays in economies worldwi...

United States, market increased by USD $168 billion in comparison with
2016.
South Africa, market increased an incredible 19%.
Japan and Hong Kong, market size increased by more than USD $25 billion.
Taiwan, increase of 16%.
But, the figures are higher if we add other real estate assets as commercial
properties, forestry and agricultural lands. According to the International real
estate adviser,
Savills:
the total value of all developed real estate on the globe
reached USD $217 trillion
.
These statistics gives an immediate perception of the immense potential and
growth of this market.
This is a truly massive industry.

Market problems
At the same time, this market lacks both transparency and efficiency, especially
compared to publicly traded equities and debt securities. The reasons for the
lack in transparency lie in:
No uniform regulatory requirements (compared to equities and bonds for
example).
Very low trading frequency due to high transaction costs (10-20%) and to
high prices.
Unstandardized assets (each object has different characteristics).
Excessive bureaucratic processes.
Since market players need transparency, they are willing to pay high fees (10-
20%) to real estate agents or intermediaries.
Besides, there are a lot of unique problems in different areas of this market. For
example, an excellent Deloitte report states that title defects are present in
almost every transaction, fixing these costs nearly USD
$1 billion a year
.
The same report indicates: “In response to greater demand for transparency,
technology advancements and the disintermediation by star...

Large volume of offline processes using a lot of paper
Complexity to deal with contracts, documentations and similar
Market Solutions
A public ledger (i.e. a blockchain) with real estate information would improve
greatly transparency and efficiency. We envision these potential changes and
benefits in the real estate market after introduction of a blockchain. As
mentioned previously, some of these improvements would be:
Registration of real estate documentation in the blockchain.
Improving transparency, speed and security in transactions, making them
cheaper and more efficient.
Reducing risk for investors and users.
Bringing together all real estate services on a platform that allows the
verification of property data, improving the accuracy of the data, the
reliability of transactions, and the transparency of the market.
Enabling electronic payments using cryptocurrency.
Creating a universal reference system to identify properties.
All this can be achieved by using blockc...
