Want to buy a house with Bitcoin? Here’s what you need to know!

DHREA 05/12/2018

Want to buy a house with Bitcoin? Here's what you need to know.

 

With everyone going cryptocurrency crazy and the value of a single Bitcoin having skyrocketed as high as $19,000, there’s two things guaranteed when you work at a real estate startup:

  1. Your parents and non-tech savvy family members will ask you to explain what the hell it is over and over again
  2. Tech-savvy buyers who’ve mined their way to Bitcoin and other crypto riches will want to know if there is a way for them to buy a house using Bitcoin

For these questions, we say: “It’s like internet money, Mom.” and “Yes, it’s totally possible to buy a house with Bitcoin.”

How buying a house with Bitcoin works

If you’re serious about purchasing a house with Bitcoin, there are a few factors that come into play:

The seller has to be down
First, you have to find a seller who is willing to accept Bitcoin as payment for the house. You can use our search to look for the words “Bitcoin” or “Ethereum” or whatever your cryptocurrency of choice happens to be to find potential property matches.

Once you have an accepted offer, the title and escrow companies have to agree to handle the transaction
Even if you are able to find a seller that’s willing to accept your offer in Bitcoin, it can be tricky to find title insurance and escrow companies who feel comfortable handling virtual currency transactions. To take on your home purchase, they may require you to cash out your Bitcoin so that your transaction can be treated more like a traditional house purchase.

The future is here

Still have those Bitcoin homebuying dreams? Here are a few of our favorite properties for sale in California and Washington that’ll accept your cryptocurrency:

6023 W Beachwood Ln. Los Angeles, CA 90038

#TBT: Football Hits The Radiowaves

DHREA 04/10/2018

pittwvu21

 

97 years ago on October 8th, 1921, the fabled “Backyard Brawl” received a little bit of extra attention. At the time, the meeting was only the 17th between the University of Pittsburgh and West Virginia University. Over the years, Pitt vs. WVU became one of the most entertaining rivalries in all of college football. So, it’s only fitting in the infancy of the bitter rivalry, the two schools would make history together and become the first ever football game to be broadcast live.

KDKA Radio covered the game, and Harold Arlin held the honor of calling the first contest to hit the radio waves. To make things even more historic, the game was played at the iconic Forbes Field. The Panthers defeated the Mountaineers 21-13. The contest wasn’t as close as the score leads on, as the Mountaineers’ George Hill made the game look a little more respectable after a kickoff return for a touchdown on the final play of the game. Hail to Pitt!

If you really wanted to take a trip down memory lane, check out the original box score from the New York Times!
