What Are NFTs?

An NFT, or Non-Fungible Token (unique, one of a kind, non-interchangeable) is a digital, easily verifiable asset, built and stored on a blockchain.

This asset can then be easily traded, sold or borrowed against its value.

It provides authenticity of ownership via a digital certificate that represents a specific asset – digital or physical, in the real world or the metaverse.

NFTs In Real Estate

NFTs are the perfect vehicle for the transfer of property ownership. NFTs are basically unique digital titles to property, either real or virtual, that are stored on a blockchain ledger. This reduces the risk of fraud and ownership is immutable.

Property tokenization was initially difficult to accomplish due to the regulations surrounding real estate investments, but Propy has developed a process that successfully works within the required legal framework.

Buying Real Property NFTs on Propy’s NFT Marketplace

Real estate NFTs can be bought and sold just like any other NFT. They're purchased using a cryptocurrency (usually of the seller's choosing), and held in a digital wallet. The only difference is that a real property NFT purchase requires completion of a “Know Your Customer” Form” and prospective buyers must be white-listed prior to submitting an offer.

Propy makes purchasing a real property NFT fast and easy because their Marketplace was developed specifically to support these types of sales.

Our upcoming NFT sales will use the USD Coin (USDC). USDC is a “stable coin” that is “pegged” to the U.S. Dollar, so it doesn’t have the volatility of other cryptocurrencies. 1 USDC will always equal $1.
