5 Questions to understand REALISTO
What is REALISTO about ?
REALISTO is a safe way for cryptocurrency holders to gain exposure to high-yield, low risk investment in real estate. We aim to create a decentralized, global platform dedicated to crowdfunding the wold's best real estate opportunities. Using blockchain technology, our platform operates as a two-sided marketplace allowing real estate experts to present unique projects, tokenize them, and offer them as curated investment opportunities.
ROI is directly paid out to REA token holders in ETH on a monthly basis, starting early 2018. REA token holders will also share 70% of the fees generated by the REALISTO platform. Learn more here
How will ICO funds be allocated to start?
The REALISTO Team will run the first two projects on the platform: With the first half of the capital raised in the ICO, REALISTO will set up a CORE POOL of expertly selected, high-quality residential and commercial real estate assets. These assets will generate steady returns for users who plan to hold their tokens and watch the intrinsic value grow. The second half of the capital will be used for an OPPORTUNITY POOL, where more active investors can vote for the acquisition of real estate projects of different risk-to-yield ratios. By allocating REA tokens to different investment opportunities investors can actively manage their own real estate portfolio.
Where are the first two projects located?
We will launch the first two projects on the platform in Berlin, Germany. Berlin is a fantastic real estate market! It benefits from fluid urban development and zoning yet suffers from a relative scarcity of building plots. The city of Berlin is currently one of the most attractive European capitals, with a population steadily on the rise. As a result, the housing market is under constant pressure, leading to a steady increase in prices.
The current environment is particularly rewarding for investment strategies that leverage off-market opportunities. As a result, REALISTO is operating in just the right market to realize exceptional ROI for its investors over the long term.
What is the Inspiration behind REALISTO?
Great Tech is essential. But real profits can only be generated through market knowledge.
Since 2011, REALISTO has been a successful player in German real estate, targeting the market in Berlin. With our experience, market knowledge and local network, REALISTO is uniquely qualified to create an asset-backed token that generates outstanding returns and steadily increases in value. In the near future, we’ll combine these strengths with an innovative new infrastructure to help real estate experts launch many more exciting projects through our platform. The fees generated from this platform-as-a-service will be shared with REALISTO token holders, making the tokens even more valuable. Learn more here
What is the difference between the REA token and other asset-backed tokens?
Unlike other ICOs, which invest all over the world, REALISTO will only operate in real estate markets that we know inside out. It takes years of experience to know your way around a real estate marketplace and know how to differentiate between good and bad offers. With our award-winning expertise in the Berlin marketplace, REALISTO has this experience. Plus, REALISTO’s platform will be a model for future real estate crowd investing—opening up an exciting new way for its token holders to generate profit.
