Forbes states that non-core work takes 89% of the average real estate agent’s workday. Admin costs grow rapidly, while record-keeping requirements in hardly meet traditional techniques.

Payment processing
Payment processing

Processing for basic payments like surveyors’ fees is done slowly, with many systems relying on paper records and costly human work; stamp duties and taxes can be even more time-consuming.

Barriers to entry

Trust and reliability

Many developing countries suffer from low societal trust, or unreliable basic administrative services. Real estate transactions usually require a trusted third party, which incurs costs, risks, and delays.

Lack of liquidity

A space characterized by large transactions often struggles with liquidity; transaction volumes fall while both vendors and purchasers suffer.
