Buyers' Market

This home may be where the heart is, but the liver is across the street. In today's tough economic climate, with the housing market in shambles, sometimes you have to get creative as a salesperson.

From The Huffington Post:
When little interest was being shown in her three-bedroom north suburban townhouse after several months on the market, one homeowner took matters into her own hands by offering an unusual perk for the home's buyer: a $1,000 tab at the bar across the street.

Homeowner Melanie Gravdal told the Chicago Sun-Times that frustration fueled her idea: offering $1,000 in food and drinks at Grandpa's Place, a bar located across the street from the home she shares with her husband and two children.
Personally, I think being a homeowner is drastically overrated in today's society. But if someone were to offer a deal like this in my area...can't lie, I'd be a little intrigued.
