Natura City, a new housing project located in an exclusive locality of Santa Marta, is available to buyers looking to make payments for real estate in bitcoin.

To be completed in 2025, the project is situated kess than 200 meters from the beaches. It comprises apartments priced at about 2.19 bitcoin equivalent to 400 million Colombian pesos.
Buyers have the option to make payment either fully in bitcoin, or partly in bitcoin and partly in fiat currency. OpenNode is facilitating bitcoin payment functionality for La Haus, and buyers may pay via Lightning Network or on-chain.
Since Natura City is a pre-sale project, buyers who invest now can hope to receive a return of up to 20% by the time construction is completed, according to the project website.
According to the project marketing, buying real estate with bitcoin is a way to diversify one’s portfolio.
“Cryptocurrencies have allowed us to diversify assets, in different sectors, and with La Haus you can do it safely and quickly.”
Buyers may also save on transaction costs using bitcoin on-chain or Lightning.
La Haus previously started to accept bitcoin payments in respect of a housing development on Playa del Carmen, Mexico, in November.
It promised then to bring crypto payments to all properties listed on the platform.
