Homer Glen Listing Offers Interesting Incentive

July 29, 2010

Desperate times call for creative measures.

The Joliet Herald is reporting that there is a home for sale in Homer Glen that offers 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a 3-car garage and a 2001 Mercedes convertible.

Want this car? Buy this house!

The 2-story Georgian, located at 13549 W. Oakwood Court in the southwest suburb, is listed for $599,000. It has been on the market for almost six months and was previously priced at $625,000, sans Mercedes.

“Your competition is very fierce,” real estate agent Audrey Johnson told the Joliet Herald. “There are three houses for sale on this street alone. So you need to do something to differentiate yourself.

“We were lucky we have a good marketing tool,” she said of the cherry red Mercedes.

Johnson, who owns Orland Park-based Home Source Realty, said it was her idea to throw in the car after the homeowners, Chinnu and Gopi Nair, told her they were going to sell it anyway before moving to their native India.

The recently painted home features a first-floor bedroom and laundry room, a sunroom that opens to a huge deck with built-in seating, a full finished basement, two fireplaces, and a pretty sweet ride.

Wonder what the Blue Book value would be on a car that has a house attached to it.
