Will I owe taxes on the proceeds from the sale of property in a foreign country even though it was sold at a loss?

We bought the property with post tax dollars, and sold it at $69000 loss.

No. Foreign Capital Loss is treated the same as a Capitol Loss from the sale of property within the US.  You report the gain or loss from the sale on Schedule D of your return.
