What is tokenizing a building?

Reasons why property owners should consider tokenization?

Normal tokenization solutions face high costs. But with Jointer, one can unlock 100 per cent of their equity at no cost, while still get profits from the property. The company accepts funding from the public and in return gives a return of 20 per cent – which is the same as the USA real estate market.

Offers put through by Jointer

With regular lenders, investors will be getting returns between 4 – 12 per cent. With Jointer, an investor will be getting a return of about 20 per cent. The current method is very much scalable because Jointer will not be outrightly buying the property to tokenize it, and thus unlimited properties can be tokenized simultaneously.

Reason for the Chrysler Building?

So, what did the brokers do in order to find the best buyer for the seller?

Even though the CBRE wanted to protect their commissions and market cap, the main fear that Jude Regev had is that the lead broker advised one of their team members to not participate. Still, the offer made by Jointer was higher than all the other bidders.

Will Jointer look towards greener pastures in NYC properties if the Chrysler Building does not work out?

Jointer is already in talks with some of the iconic properties in the city of New York.

The company has a waiting list of 1,000 loan brokers and also property owners with more than $1 billion in tokenization.
