My Backyard is very pleased to be collaborating with the BLA to promote to its members our FREE global property listing platform, powered by Blockchain to launch in October.

Our ambition is to turn the market on its head with a brand new property listing solution. We’re allowing providers to create their own listings, promote via social media channels and start instantly arranging viewings. My Backyard will be available to private sellers and landlords as well as suppliers, developers and agents.

GLOBAL CONNECTIVITY

My Backyard believes that its platform will lead to exciting new opportunities for BLA members as soon as it goes live. Providers will be able to upload a listing anywhere in the UK and potentially secure offers from buyers and rentiers anywhere in the world, England, Dubai, Spain, New Zealand, New York… and on your smartphone or laptop you will be able stay connected day-and-night to manage your listings and networks whilst on the move and this is just the start. As our network grows we will look to expand our IT solution with Smart Contracts and cryptocurrency to add greater value by facilitating frictionless border payments and implementing digital contracts.

There are around 4 billion people online and growing. Yet web-portals are still delivering the same top-down approach from fourteen years ago. Most offer limited coverage to one or two countries and private landlords and vendors are prohibited from listing directly, forcing providers to go through agents to market their properties. This is too slow and too expensive. My Backyard starts with the provider allowing them to create their own listings and directly connect with consumers which is a far more exciting proposition that can work
better for everyone.

SOCIAL MEDIA & REAL-ESTATE

My Backyard is creating a global marketplace for all stakeholders on its platform as a far more effective way to manage voids and maximise deal flows. Advertising your property to the world is not only possible, it’s the only way to secure real value. The Infinity pool at the Villa Honegg luxury hotel in Switzerland no longer needs to pay for advertising thanks to is popularity on Instagram. Worldwide, providers are already using WhatsApp and Facebook to market their properties and more and more providers are moving away from high street agents to social media platforms to
achieve real-time visibility. This marks the beginning of the end of For Sale/To Let Boards and is an exciting time for the future of social media and real-estate.

DIGITALISING PROPERTY TRANSACTIONS

Property transactions will eventually be made digitally as a routine, in real-time using an App and without the need for intermediaries. Digitalising property transactions speeds up the buying process and puts an end to removal vans waiting outside the new home until money has been transferred between lawyers. In future, you will simply see the property that you want, make an offer and transact to make purchase not within weeks but hours. Shieldpay through Barclays have already completed the UK’s first fully digital mortgage transaction and by 2021 the Land Registry will have most if not all title deeds in the UK registered digitally. Compares this with web-portals where listings can take days let alone factoring in the timescales for agents to arrange a first viewing. My Backyard is a digital marketing solution to fit the new rapid digital age allowing providers to upload and the potential to instantly connect and transact.

HOW TO GET STARTED?

My Backyard’s KYC and AML process must be completed by anyone wanting to transact, to create a digital fingerprint and digital passport. The process effectively secures proof of ID from consumers and proof of ownership from property owners so that everyone on the platform can be safe in the knowledge that whoever they are transacting with is who they say they are. Once the verification process is complete respondents will receive same-day notification confirming that their account has been activated. You are now free to start creating your listings and networking.

THE BENEFITS OF A DECENTRALISED REAL-ESTATE MARKET FOR PROVIDERS

My Backyard is very proud to be collaborating with the BLA to introduce our decentralised offering. Our FREE property listings solution is a social platform bringing together all communities across the globe to network in real-time, creating value in real-estate via the shared economy:

 Faster Turnaround Times
 Peer-To-Peer Networking
 Access To Latest Products

Through collaborations like this with the BLA we hope to accelerate uptake of our platform in the coming months. Primarily, our platform is aimed at individual landlords/sellers as well as providers with a portfolio of 100’s of properties, including HMO specialists, property developers, investors, small independents, brokers and agents. We want everyone to trial our solution and share their experiences with their networks so that more communities can connect with each other to sell & let properties directly. As our network grows we expect to offer providers increased value from a greater global footprint, higher visibility of listings and further opportunities to save time and money. We can’t wait to launch and get your early feedback as soon as we go live. Please do share details of our project launch with your network. You can REGISTER now and start listing in October.
