Blok creates the best home selling experience

Blok automates home sales with a streamlined web service that empowers home owners to sell their home themselves and renders traditional realtors redundant.

Instead of paying costly commissions (avg. 2-4%) to real estate agents or going through the hassle of selling the apartment themselves (avg. 50h+), Blok provides a new, cost-effective alternative, for home owners.

Blok aims to revolutionize the Nordic housing market within the next few years by bringing new types of services to the market that utilize advanced automation and artificial intelligence.
