A roadmap to the future of real estate.

Technology is redefining our basic assumptions about real estate value: the meaning of location and accessibility, the power of regulation, the cost of capital and information, and even the notion of scarcity itself.

Over the next decade, the world’s largest asset class will go through a once-in-a-century transformation, powered by changes in the ways humans work, live, learn, shop, and socialize.
In ‘Rethinking Real Estate’, Dror Poleg charts a roadmap to the future of real estate and the way we will all live and work. He provides investors and entrepreneurs with key insights and practical strategies that will enable them to identify both risks and opportunities as the real estate asset class is transformed.
