Real Estate is the world's largest asset class, worth approximately $277 trillion or about three times the combined value of every publically traded company in the world. For decades, property technology, or proptech for short, has been largely overlooked and has stood in the shadows of emerging financial technology or fintech companies such as SoFi and Robinhood.
Analysts previously attributed this slower adoption to lower investment volume. However, this is no longer the case. Proptech companies are growing faster than ever, with over $23 billion invested in 2020 alone. This trend is evident based on reports from industry players. For example, 81% of real estate organizations plan to integrate proptech into their business processes in the coming years, according to TechCrunch. Furthermore, the growing work-from-home workforce continues to strengthen these numbers.
In short, proptech companies are growing faster than ever and becoming of great importance in our companies. We've composed a list of the Top 10 Most Innovative Proptech Companies that you should keep on your radar.
