What is a PropTech?
PropTech is a trend originating in the United Kingdom that began its popularity during 2014, it is an English acronym for “property” and “technology”, that is, technology applied to property. PropTech refers to any company that uses technology to refine, improve or reinvent any service within the real estate sector. The proptech companies base their activities on technologies and applications such as Big Data (which is useful for actions such as property appraisal), real estate crowdfounding (property investments), crowdlending (for loans), virtual reality (visiting a property remotely) , or the marketplaces (sale and / or rental web pages). The degree of development of each of them is different but their capacity to change the real estate sector will increase in the coming years.
