Where to learn from to get a glimpse of the future of real estate?

London, European proptech leader

The British capital has long been a hub for property developers and investors, remaining as one of the most traded property markets in the world, continuing to offer opportunities to investors, landlords and developers. It’s also no secret that London is well-established as a technology hub.

Tech experts agree to say London is the leading city in Europe when it comes to the usage of technology in the built environment (Osborne Clarke).  With more than 700 startups in categories Real Estate, Facility Management, Energy Efficiency, Energy Management and Construction, London is a clear leader in Europe in real estate innovation.

For example, Proportunity helps first-time buyers get on the property ladder by using machine learning to forecast the future value of a property and then letting buyers borrow against the estimate. The company has been incubated by the Google Campus London Machine Learning residency program to bring this idea to market as a shared equity loan. They have now raised a total of $1.7 million in seed funding for their startup and gained FCA-accreditation to operate as a mortgage lender.

Singapore, a smart approach of real estate

Singapore is the most advanced market for the proptech industry in Asia, which is partly fueled by the government’s Smart Nation initiative. Real estate tech in Singapore and the companies in proptech sector aim to provide end-to-end solutions for property sellers and buyers, including management and paperwork.

The technologies that are doing wonders here range from virtual agents to 3D modeling and printing, use of VR and AI for virtual tours, Big Data and analytics, robotics and very evidently IoT (Internet of Things) for making a home as well as the country smart.

According to Crunchbase, there are circa 181 real estate / proptech startups in Singapore. However, the leading Singapore-based real estate company remains CapitaLand.

CapitaLand is one of Asia’s largest real estate companies headquartered in Singapore. It is an owner and manager of a global portfolio comprising integrated developments, shopping malls, lodging, offices, homes, real estate investment trusts (REITs) and funds. Present across more than 160 cities in over 30 countries, the Group focuses on Singapore and China as core markets while it continues to expand in markets such as Indonesia and Vietnam. Last year, CapitalLand launched The Funan mall,

REALly, a successful Singapore-based startup, created Singapore’s first integrated project management, e-tendering and open marketplace solution for landlords and tenants, PMs and vendors within the real estate industry, to help them coordinate the numerous tasks that are often part of their projects such as office renovations, outfitting of retail stores and condominium and facilities management. The goal of the service is to promote price transparency among the suppliers and contractor through open bidding and ratings.

Ohmyhome is an other great example of how the real estate market is evolving. The proptech startup is today the most highly-rated property agency in Singapore.
