Institutional capital is flocking to the developing world.

Vikram Chari, SmartOwner's CEO, believes that the majority of the wealth created over the next few decades will be in emerging markets, and that capital will become less and less country-specific as information abundance levels the playing field. Chari explains that, "300 million people - the equivalent of the entire United states - will move to cities by 2050 in India alone. With such an extraordinary opportunity for wealth creation, it's no surprise that Western investors are deploying more and more funds abroad."

He sees such capital as potentially transformative to the fundamental development process: "If you can offer investors a predictable and safe 12% IRR, there's no limit to how much capital they can invest. An entire country can be lifted out of poverty with the right incentives."

The short-term rentals segment has flourished in the last few years, dominating the growth in the hospitality sector. The segment alone is estimated to add $56 billion in the next 3 years and reach $194 billion by 2021.

The idea of home-ownership is being rewritten by short term rentals, both from the perspective of enjoying the best yields from one's property, as well as capitalizing on the decentralization of real estate assets in general across industries, especially hospitality.

A careful analysis of industry dynamics reveals an upcoming supply-demand mismatch over the next few years. More people will want to be purchasing properties than selling them, causing an increase in prices that, if paired with the right investment, has the potential to pay off handsomely.

This dynamic will be most pronounced in the upper-mid tier of the market, the so-called premium properties. For those looking for their next big investment, such a property is a wise bet indeed.

While much of the hype around blockchain has been concentrated around overvalued crypto-currencies and opaque ICOs, it is becoming increasingly clear that real estate - the world's largest asset class by a large margin - will be one of the first industries to be revolutionized by the blockchain.

There is a revolution underway in the world’s largest asset class, and it’s just getting started.

Historically speaking, real estate has been among the world’s most profitable assets, as well as the most valuable, with a total value of $217 trillion. Despite its stability and value, a profitable property investment has traditionally required large sums of funds, access to information that is difficult to obtain, and substantial effort to manage the lengthy processes. This has meant that getting in on the ground floor of the most lucrative parts of real estate has largely been exclusive to highly connected institutional investors.

Across sectors, the unlocking of real estate’s hidden value is underway in earnest as the industry moves towards a brighter, smoother future. After all, $40 trillion is a lot of money to go around.
