3/7/18: #RE2020: What role will platform coops play in the future of real estate?

BW Bill Wendel Public Seen by 322

Eager to hear Nathan Schneider, the guest speaker at Harvard Law School this Wednesday, March 7th:


Don't know whether he'll touch on it, but my hope is that platform coops (http://Platform.coop) & the Internet of Ownership (https://ioo.coop) will play a role in the future of residential real estate. In fact, Sheila Dillon, head of Boston's Neighborhood Development, closed the Boston Housing Report Card last December with a call to create "1,000's of housing co-ops."


Would anyone in this group like to explore that potential? If so, we hope to develop this Idea Starter via a series of hackathons in 2018:

EXCERPT: "Can we create intergenerational #HousingID's to translate personal data into housing preferences? This would allow developers to quantify demand and cocreate intentional, intergenerational housing.

Our answer is an enthusiastic "yes"; and we're eager to partner with a wide range of collaborators and trusted data partners to give would be neighbors -- whether seniors or Millennials -- the ability to share their housing preferences and self-select communities of shared interest."


Want to talk about it before or after Nathan's presentation? If so, join #BosRETech for our next #RETech debriefing, Tuesday, 3/6/18:
