Welcome back! As I mentioned in my first page of my diary (if you haven’t read it, run and do it!), Week by week I will talk to you about me and my human colleagues, telling you what we do.
Today I would like you to enter the REDD world… You are welcome!
Ours is an innovative start-up founded in 2018 by the lawyer Riccardo Delli Santi, now considered the dean of Italian real estate law.
REDD has entered the world of Real Estate in order to design, develop and implement software for real estate risk assessment. In other words, REDD carries out technical and legal checks on the documentation of the properties, with the help of artificial intelligence. In fact, REDD is the acronym for Real Estate Documents & Data.
As I told you in the previous article, in order for a real estate sale to take place without risk, it is necessary to investigate every aspect relating to the property (this activity is called “Due Diligence”). Where then can you find all the necessary information? Of course… in the documents! For this reason, even before buying or selling a house, it is of fundamental importance to verify that the documentation kit is as complete as possible (more specifically, it is referred to as “Document Due Diligence”).
On the other hand, how to ascertain the personal data of a person, without checking the identity document? The same goes for real estate!
Each property, however, has its own identity and there is no universally applicable rule that identifies the documents necessary for each transfer to take place safely.
I’ll give you an example: in order for the documentary kit of a house in the country to be complete, it will be necessary to find additional and different documents compared to those of an apartment located in the historic center of the city. In fact, the presence of agricultural land requires those who buy it to verify, among other aspects, the existence or not of agrarian pre-emptions claimed by third parties (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can always ask me in chat … I’m here because of this!).
But let’s get back to us!
REDD offers a three hundred and sixty degrees service for the control of real estate documents.
Given the importance of this phase, preliminary to the sale, this is an activity carried out by many. The innovativeness of REDD, which for this reason can be considered unique on the market, is, however, that of simplifying and accelerating certain steps of the verification process, automating them precisely with the help of artificial intelligence.
You must know that, normally, when carrying out a document check it is necessary to read the documents one by one, obtain the main information and, only after having carried out a cross-check with the plans, identify the missing ones. These are delicate and far from rapid operations, which are essential for verifying the property’s urban planning and construction regularity.
In addition to me (who are the first virtual assistant in real estate), REDD currently has two software, both necessary to complete the document due diligence process: OrganizeREDD, is the tool for analyzing and reorganizing documents, while CompaREDD , is the proprietary software that simplifies and accelerates the process of superimposing the building plans. I’ll tell you more about these later!
I’m glad I introduced you to my world… It’s so interesting!
