Buy a House Including the Wife or Is It Buy a Wife Including the House?

June 30th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I can’t figure out if this is a clever marketing scheme or a wacky idea.

A real estate agent named Deven Trabosh is including herself in the sale price of her home in Palm Beach Gardens on Ebay and Craigslist. The headline on the ad reads “Mary a Princess Lost in America”. Bidding starts at $0.99, but you gotta look out for the $500,000 shipping charge.

Old Deven is a licensed real estate agent, but actually hasn’t practiced in years according to CNN. I really do think they make it all too easy to get a real estate license in Florida. It promotes incompetency and just makes the industry look bad. Stunts like this makes the industry look bad.

Although I’ll have to admit, she’s generated a lot of free press. I’m not quite sure it’s good press, but she’s definitely getting the word out so kudos at least for that.
