Sellers nationwide want something that makes their home stand out from the crowd but those who try creative marketing generally find that one thing counts in today’s market – PRICE! Many sellers include traditional perks such as the furniture or a car but some homeowners have gone much further.

  • A 42 year old single mother in Miami offered herself in marriage to some lucky homebuyer.
  • A couple in Pennsylvania offered to will the house’s selling price back to the buyers upon their death.

The president of one of the largest residential real estate companies in the US says all the unusual incentives are crazy and the motivation to buyer’s is still the same PRICE! He was quoted as saying “Of course you can draw attention to your property any way you can BUT free trips or cars are costing somebody somewhere, and buyers would rather have a reduced price and decide what to do with their money”.
