Buying a House with Crypto-Currency





I've worked with clients before that have made a lot in crypto, but sadly most of the encounters that I have had where someone supposedly made a lot of crypto & wanted to purchase property using me as their agent was when they were not a legitimate buyer. Those who are sellers may have also been targeted by crypto scams of various kinds before, and so there is a lot of reason not to mention crypto at all if you are a legitimate buyer until much later on in the conversation unless your buyer's agent asks you a question that would bring it up after you have already demonstrated through various means that you are a legitimate buyer.

What illegitimate buyers (catfish buyers) & agents being targeted by buyers supposedly using crypto should know

Here is more details on Catfish Buyers targeting real estate agents, including how to spot them and how to respond:

If the conversation continued long enough, sometimes they wanted to give me unsolicited cyrpto or other investment advice, which I didn't want since I'm not interested in crypto, & even if I was, try to avoid taking advice from scammers. Often they wanted to move the conversation to Whatsapp or a similar service & not chat via video. There are a lot of crypto scams going around and I don't want to waste anyone's time. I don't want there to be a lack of trust between me and my clients either.
