Hi all,

If anyone has used Bitcoin to purchase real estate I would love to hear about your experience.

Obviously it is easy to use Bitcoin when dealing directly with a seller who owns the property free and clear.  However, I have not been able to find a title company who is willing to take Bitcoin directly, without first converting it to cash.

Any experiences would be greatly appreciated.

As long as the market price is artificially devalued by morons irrationally fearing the government, it's a great time to accept BTC for real estate. However, spending BTC on RE estate, if the BTC cost you more to acquire than the current market price, isn't a great idea.

USD/BTC=$1000? $500,000 property floats to 500 BTC
USD/BTC=? $500,000 property floats to

I actually bought some property in New Mexico when BTC was 'round $1100.00 USD.  Just a spot of land with a small house on it.  Paying the taxes is where it gets tricky, but it can be done.  The seller was interested in BTC but wasn't sure how to get any and wanted to sell of some extra property for it.

I believe one should be careful buying real estate and have a lawyer because there is alot of scams out there, selling real estate that is not truly belonging to the person who is scamming.

There are more but look around a bit further than the "Bitcoin Discussion" sub-forum pit-of-trolls.

As long as the right precautions and it's handled in the right way by both parties there is nothing to worry about, many people have done it publicly and I'm pretty sure a lot of people would of done it privately. Although, selling real estates is difficult with Bitcoin because people expect to pay less because of the potential Bitcoin has to double, triple or more in the future. If you can work out a deal and you understand the problems which you could face then it's a good idea to expand your business into the Bitcoin world, however if you want a sucessful business you might want to be as transparent as possible before people start asking questions.

Most countries have not accepted Bitcoins, some countries can buy property Bitcoin but only a few.

This requires national recognition Bitcoin, of course, but rarely acknowledged that some countries used to buy listing.

 To sell a piece of property all you need is Valuable Consideration, you can sell the house for 500BTC and 1 dollar the dollar being the valuable consideration. Now closing cost and other fee's are all up to the service provider if the want to take them or not.

I Heard in the states

if you buy property without fiat (using gold for example) you dont have to pay property taxes or something like that

if thats true,  then bitcoin could be a saviour

Not true... The local gov always wants property taxes. Most property is taxed at the city/county level.
