ShelterZoom announced that Offer NOW™, its blockchain-based real estate offer and acceptance application, is now live in more than 10 states and Ontario, Canada. This comes in the first five months of the solution’s availability. The firm has also attracted sign-ups from 22 countries.

Hundreds of thousands of property listings now feature ShelterZoom’s Offer NOW button, where consumers can quickly and easily begin the process of making a secure offer.

ShelterZoom has recently been named as a finalist by the SIIA CODiE Award as the Best Emerging Technology 2018 and shortlisted by The Blocks Awards as The Best Blockchain Startup of 2018.

Momentum for the Ethereum-powered solution continues unabated as several other states are currently preparing to go live. Beyond the U.S., ShelterZoom is in the process of increasing its footprint in Canada and rolling its blockchain applications out to firms in APAC and the Middle East. In addition, leading real estate firms from Europe, South America and South Africa are also in discussions to become Offer NOW or Rent NOW affiliates.

We truly want this new way of doing business to benefit every real estate professional and consumer. ShelterZoom is providing a much needed and cost-effective consumption model to the industry.”

The website is accepting sign-ups for Offer NOW and Rent NOW, which can be readily integrated with any website that features real estate listings with just a few lines of code.
