The internet raves about the wild house list that comes with a free ‘ex-husband’

A wild Florida home listing has caught the attention of potential buyers not for its location or size, but rather for the “ex-husband” who comes in as a tenant.

The description of the family home, located at 3819 Quail Street, Panama City Beach, reveals that it was on the market for $699,000.

For that price, you get three bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1,396 square feet of space, a garage, a pool and hot tub — and a seated tenant.

The tongue-in-cheek listing, by real estate agent Crystal Ball, says: “Wonderfully rehabilitated ex-husband up for grabs as tenant in this gorgeous home in Panama City Beach, Florida.

“This dream man in the kitchen is a personal chef and server who cooks perfect meals on a new stove with updated counters you can make memories on. The headgear is well worn, mostly bald, like the eagles soaring in the sky above S. Lagoon just steps from your massive driveway.

“The XL ears will pick up the squeaks and make sure WD40 is applied to your new fixtures. The big Italian nose will sniff out all the smells before you even think of taking the trash cans out of your decorative front door.

“Superhuman strength will save you years of hard work lifting your hot tub cover where you can fall in love listening to our two young boys splashing around in the pool. The tenants’ new metal knees should outlast the new one. LVP flooring that has just been expertly installed.

“The price is firm because the seller has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in rehabilitation, training and time to pass on these assets.”

Photos in the listing show a man, named Rich, posing suggestively around the house with a giant stuffed tiger, as well as on an animal print throw.

Two children also appear throughout the list, as Ball explained to Newsweek the house and family were his, with the boys aged 10 and 5.

She explained that she came up with the concept as a way to generate interest in the sale, as well as finding “humor in the chaos”.

ball told Newsweek“I’m a big fan of creative marketing tactics and thought this was an appropriate way to announce my divorce, name change and the launch of my new brokerage.”

Ball, who previously went through Crystal Chaillou and ran the website, said the couple will be divorcing after five years of marriage.

Health and financial complications contributed to the breakup, Ball said, adding, “Instead of leaving and filing for bankruptcy, which would certainly have been the easier route, I chose the path of forgiveness and we worked together over the next two years. always supporting each other and manipulating things with each other, not against each other.”

Regarding the sale of the home, Ball explained that she specializes in “vacation rental properties”, adding, “It is common in Florida for homes to be sold with tenants included in investment properties. .”

Since it was shared, the list has exploded online, as Ball said: “The feedback has been generally positive. There are other agents who don’t see the humor in it, but it’s is part of the reason I listed it.

“The past few years have been tough, to say the least, and even though my husband and I didn’t make it to life partners, we’re still great friends, and he’s an amazing dad. for our sons.

“I bought this house from him for him and my sons and we just finished rehabbing the house and moving them out. Our divorce was finalized the same week, so I thought selling the house with him as a tenant would be a montage close to the chapter.

“I didn’t expect anyone to buy the house, but I thought it might be a tempting offer for some. I don’t really have any interest from buyers, just colleagues agents who find it hilarious and love the idea.”

However, she claims the list continues to be flagged and taken down, but not before it was shared on Twitter by Zillow Gone Wild earlier this week.
