A blog about getting started with metaverse real estate
Virtual reality (or "the metaverse") is currently in its infancy. But as the technology advances, it's becoming more and more apparent that we're approaching a world where our digital and physical lives merge. And with this merger comes new types of real estate: virtual real estate. While there are many questions surrounding this new form of property, one thing is clear: it's an exciting new asset class for investors. So if you want to know how to invest in the metaverse and make money off virtual real estate, I've got you covered.
What is metaverse real estate?
Metaverse real estate is, as you might have guessed from the name, a type of real estate that exists in the virtual world and is accessible through a VR headset. Metaverse real estate can take many forms: you might buy a small plot of land for your home or purchase a rundown building to refurbish.There are also opportunities for investors who want to make money by investing in commercial properties or by becoming landlords themselves.
How can I get started in the metaverse?
You've heard about the metaverse, but you don't know where to start. Well, if you want to get started in your own virtual property empire and make money from it, there are a few things you'll need.
A virtual reality headset compatible with the metaverse (like Oculus Rift)
A virtual reality headset compatible with the metaverse that is easy to use (if it's too complicated or expensive, you'll never have time for anything else)
A virtual reality headset compatible with the metaverse that is affordable (you don't have much money at this stage)
Where can I invest in the metaverse?
The answer is that you can invest in the metaverse through a variety of platforms using a variety of currencies and real estate investment vehicles.
There are three main ways to invest in virtual reality:
Virtual Reality Real Estate Funds
Virtual Reality ETFs (Exchange-Traded Funds)
Directly into real estate assets, such as land parcels or buildings
How do virtual auctions work?
Do you have your eye on a few parcels of land within the same area? Do you want to make sure that you have the ability to bid on all of those parcels in one auction? You're in luck!
You can bid on multiple parcels of land at the same time, or even bid on them at once.
How much should I expect to pay for a virtual parcel of land?
The price of a parcel depends on its size and location. For instance, the average cost of a VR lot in downtown Chicago is around $100,000. Meanwhile, you can purchase an entire island off the coast of Hawaii for less than $1 million.
However, it’s important to keep in mind that not all parcels are created equal: some might only be accessible via helicopter or boat—or perhaps even by plane! The exact price will vary depending on what features your land has (elevator or escalator access? Do you have views?) and where you are located (the middle of nowhere or right on the beach?).
How has the price of virtual land changed over time?
You may be wondering how the price of virtual land has changed over time. The answer is that it's been rising steadily since the beginning of the metaverse. In fact, in early days (the 90’s), it was possible to buy entire islands for around $10 USD, and even then there were still some available for under $1,000—but today you'd need at least a million bucks to buy your own island!
That said, there are still places where you can find these older areas on sale, but they're rarer than ever—and even if you manage to snag one at a bargain price, there's no guarantee that someone else won't snatch it up before long.
In short: while prices have risen over time, they have done so at an accelerating rate. This means that if inflation continues as expected in this sector of real estate investment (which we think it will), then virtual land will continue its meteoric rise; we predict that by 2024 or 2025 we'll see a million dollar parcel atop Mount Everest!

With gaming platforms like Roblox and Fortnite revolutionizing the way people interact with each other online, it’s no surprise that virtual real estate is becoming more popular than ever. As the metaverse continues to grow in popularity, so does the opportunity for investors to get in on the ground level of a potentially lucrative industry. From high-profile venture capitalists like Andreessen Horowitz and Sequoia Capital to crypto companies like Decentraland investing over $10 million into real estate on the blockchain, there is no shortage of capital flowing into this new market segment. In addition to VCs, private equity firms are also starting to pay attention as they look for ways to diversify their portfolios. While some have been skeptical about investing in non-fungible tokens (NFTs), others have recognized that these assets can provide returns similar or better than traditional investments without needing a large amount of upfront capital.
