Global real estate investments account more than twice the size of the stock market. Yet the number of investors in real estate are much lower, because of the liquidity and global access. Tenants and owners are barely satisfied in the current system. In this paper, the goal is to try out the employment of blockchain in real estate market and represent the facilities it can give to the real estate market. Then the new born issues which are emerged are tackled with a proposed mechanism. The research to date leads to the following conclusions: Blockchain technology and smart contracts can sort out the classical issues that real estate is facing with, and they offer much more meaningful tools for the proposed mechanism discussed in this paper.
