Woman Uses Husband’s Affair to Help Sell Family House
A newly single mother of two has come up with a novel marketing ploy to sell the home she once shared with her adulterous husband in Oregon.
In April, 37-year-old Elle Zober of Portland, Oregon found out that her husband had traded her in for a younger model was having an affair with a 22-year-old yoga instructor.
Now they're splitting up, and Elle is trying to sell their family home on her own. It’s a three-bedroom, 1,144-square-foot house she's listing at $189,000. And, in a move designed to turn lemons into lemonade, she's decided to use her husband's infidelity to help with marketing.
Her real-estate signs say, "Husband left us for a 22-year-old. House for sale by scorned, slightly bitter, newly single owner. Adulterers need not apply." The signs have generated interest in the house AND Elle. She says she's gotten some "interesting offers" including a few invitations to dinner.
You can take a tour of her house and even purchase a magnet version of the sign on her website greatfamilyhome.com. Who knew a divorce could turn into such a valuable marketing technique?
