La Jolla, Calif. (Dec. 2017) – Willis Allen Realtor Coki Saldarriaga has listed a home in Bay Park for the Bitcoin equivalent of $2.5 million (Bitcoin valuation is in constant flux). It is the first cryptocurrency listing in Southern California.
“It has been published that Bitcoin is a legitimate decentralized currency; it was just a matter of time before it moved into the real estate realm, and I’m excited to be the agent representing San Diego’s first Bitcoin listing,” says Saldarriaga who has an extensive background in the financial industry. “We think this home will appeal to Bitcoin owners both domestic and across the globe, from Millenials to Baby Boomers who perhaps are looking to diversify, take profits or advantage of the ease of transacting business with Bitcoin” Saldarriaga adds that the home will get international exposure through Willis Allen’s exclusive global affiliate connections with partners like Christie’s International Real Estate, Luxury Portfolio International and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World.
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and worldwide payment system created in 2009, whose value has skyrocketed over the last several months. Bitcoin uses Blockchain technology to transact business and not a centralized bank, making international payments more efficient and not encumbered by any specific country’s regulations. Bitcoins are preferably stored in a “digital wallet” which is a type of external hard-drive or in the cloud.
“We will utilize the full power of Willis Allen’s top-notch marketing department to promote this home to just the right buyer,” says Willis Allen President & CEO Andrew E. Nelson. “Over our 100-year history, we’ve helped our clients successfully navigate a lot of changes in the real estate market, and listing this home for Bitcoin is just the latest example.”
