News hardware For a purchased metaverse home, a very real home offered (and vice versa)
The second largest real estate agency in Belgium recently ushered in the real estate market in the metaverse for a world first. Indeed, this Thursday 2nd June a rather special announcement appeared as it is indeed a real house however it is being sold with its identical version in NFT, already built in the decentraland metaverse.
2 houses for the price of one
The exceptional residence located a stone’s throw from Tongres, Belgium, will cost you the “modest” sum of 1,475,000 euros, but at this price you have:
- a land of 7,683 m²
- 3 rooms
- 3 bathrooms
- but above all a totally virtual second home.
This virtual pavilion will be bequeathed by the Zimmo agency in the form of an NFT to the buyer of the physical house. The virtual house, modeled in the smallest details of the interior decoration on the outside, is already deployed on a virtual plot. This digital plot of land previously purchased by the agency for the occasion is accessible online on the famous Decentraland metaverse.
A virtual home, why do it?
The digital copy of the Tongeren house will allow its owner to organize virtual events such as an art exhibition, mini-games or concerts directly on his virtual land. Attention the same at this price the virtual reality viewer to make the most of the experience, it is not provided …
Beyond the recreational and innovative aspect of the project, the investment could prove fruitful in a few years, if the metaverse plays a bigger role in our lives. We still hope that the virtual house does not one day exceed the price of the real house … This could suggest Spielberg’s dystopian synopsis.
A smart investment
Currently with a price of around € 3,000, the NFT of the house on its Decentraland land will not allow all notary fees to be recovered. In fact, if the owner decides to part with it immediately, he can resell it on opensea or on the native market of the metaverse against Ethereum.
Also, the NFT holder may very well decide to remove the house from his virtual land to build other things instead.
However, it might make sense for the lucky winner to ride the web3 craze by renting their home in the metaverse for a variety of events. In fact, more and more brands are interested in this environment and are spending huge sums to participate in this new Web3 market, the opportunity for the owner to obtain an income to make the most of the capabilities of his virtual asset.
Very excited about the idea of setting foot in the metaverse, the agency Zimmo explains: “Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and blockchain technology have pushed the virtual real estate industry up into the metaverse. In Zimmo, we find it normal to explore and adopt these innovations to offer our customers even more opportunities, even virtual ones. “
