In the spirit of BitCoin grass roots promotion My home is officially up for Rent and I will only accept BTC.
First announced here on bitcointalk.org.

My home is located in Mesa AZ.
Cross streets are Warner and Signal Butte

Price will be ~90BTC (That value could obviously change)
Rent price is below market value for any bitcoin takers.

More details to come.
I'm still in the process of moving and preparing my home for new renters.
We are a large family and needed a bigger home.
Very busy right now so it may take time before i respond again with more details.

anticipated FAQ:
      Q: Are you trolling?
      A: No, I am not.
     
      Q: Your joking right?
      A: No, I am not. I really want to see Bitcoin succeed and this is just my way of doing it.
 
      Q: Is this your pathetic attempt to get out of "newbie jail"
      A: No, it is not, but it would be nice to get out and have this thread posted else where. Wink

I can't remember who, and am too lazy to look it up... but I'm pretty sure one of the early adopters already pays rent in BTC.

That is a good idea. Would not have to worry about that "check's in the mail" thing  Smiley

How about rent to own?  Make it the first house bought with BTC.

Obviously depends on what area of Meza and the size of the house, but just taking a look on Zillow I see a lot of $200k+ houses for sale, which would definitely rent above $1000/month.

A lot of people who had BTC denominated liabilities got burned last time when BTC jumped to 30$ from 0.8$.

I really want to see Bitcoin succeed and this is just my way of doing it.

how about offering it as a hacker house with rooms for rent?  residents would include bitcoin entrepreneurs, miners, etc.

is the hosue still for rent?

I may be interested... where are the pictures.... i am a miner and i mine bitcoins.  that would be great to just pay my rent by mining.  Dont worry, I only have two rigs, each with 4x 58xx GPUS and they are really not that hot.  its just two normal computer cases stacked on each other...

Anyways, justs aying im interested.... ~90btc seems reasonable if it is nicely insulated and good quality

I recommend that you peg the monthly rent to some other currency of more stability, perhaps with a clause that prevents the monthly rent from increasing or decreasing by more than a certain percentage, say 10% either way.  This way both parties accept some of the currency risk.  Gold, silver, copper spot prices; the Euro, Yen, and even the US$ are more stable references than Bitcoin.  This will still help the bitcoin economy to grow, which will increase stability in the future; but it's not in the interests of anyone if either party to this deal ends up getting hammered and bailing out due to massive swings in the Bitcoin exchange value.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Ha, this is cool. But don't include free electric - this might not work out so well for you renting to miners.  Smiley
