My professional background is in real estate investing and property management - and although I’ve been learning quickly; I do not have a technical background to work on a project on the Cardano platform. I also have an educational background in Business Admin and International Business. I love Cardano for many reasons; but one in particular is it’s focus on financially underserved areas of the world that are given to high levels of corruption. I have some ideas in a specific area: real estate transactions, leasing transactions/contracts, and trustless escrow facilitation.
Secure and reliable housing markets are essential to economic development. You can’t make much progress if you’re worried you and your family won’t have a place to live soon because of illegal or shady actions from a landlord, or if you’re a landlord/real estate investor, why would you take the risk to develop/lease out a property if tenants can get away with just about anything? Both sides are needed for housing development and stable housing markets.
I’m looking for a group to work with to flesh out these ideas, and work towards creating customizable smart contracts that can be tweaked depending on your local laws. There are a lot of similarities throughout the world in these areas, but definitely areas of significant differences depending on culture, national and local laws. There are a lot of interesting problems to solve here and it’s an area of development that could potentially change the landscape of RE markets in some areas of the world. It would be a major disruption to be able to lease a property and not need to trust your landlord - knowing that you’ll get your deposit back if there aren’t damages - and if you as a landlord can prove that there were damages, lack of payment, etc. that proves the deposit shouldn’t be returned - and the disbursement of the deposit happens automatically.
This gives you the picture of what I’m thinking about. All I have is this idea. I’m working towards being able to have more time to learn to code and assist on the technical side - but I don’t want to wait to start this conversation.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
