A Tesla Motors Inc Model S may be yours for free, well not exactly as you will have to $3.1999 million to buy an environmentally conscious house attached with it. A Carmel, California homeowner is offering an automobile sweetener in the form of Tesla Model S for selling a solar powered house, says a report from Forbes.
Tesla sweetener. Will it work?
Apart from being solar powered, this $3.1999m mansion has water and air filtration systems, an outdoor fire pit, a three-car garage, fountains, radiant heat and two electric charging stations. These charging stations will come in handy for the buyer as they will be getting a free Tesla Motors Inc Model S.
It is not known, which version Tesla Motors Inc Model S version will be offered with the deal, but one thing is sure the free part will range from roughly $70,000 to nearly $100,000 (the cost of Tesla Model S). One could assume that the seller might have already added the cost of the car to the house, but still it will be nice to get such a premium gift.
As per the listing, the mansion is newly built and is packed with features. “This newly constructed Carmel home, with beautiful views of Fish Ranch and Carmel Highlands, contains 4000+ sq. ft. of living space. Exceptional craftsmanship throughout; no detail was overlooked,” the listing says.
Luxury homes are hard to sell
Often luxury homes seller resort to unusual perks to sweeten their deals as the pools of buyers are relatively small when compared to average single family home. But in this case, the home owner is using an epitome of luxury (Tesla Model S) to sell the luxurious mansion.
This is not the first time that the sellers are enticing buyers with a sweetener. Last year, the owner of a 16,000 sq/ft mansion in Dallas offered a 2015 Bentley to the agent or Realtor, who is able to get a buyer for the home. The car was in addition to the agent’s normal commission.
Even the iconic Michael Jordan faced similar hardships while selling his Highland Park mansion, says Forbes. Jordan’s agent was ready to do “whatever it takes” to secure a buyer for the mansion including offering free sneakers, “for the right price,” or giving in “every edition of signature Air Jordans in the buyer’s size.”
Jordan’s house was initially listed for $29m, but is now going for $14.855m. The 56,000 sq/ft house has 9 bedrooms, a basketball court, gym, a tennis court, 15 baths, hair salon, a guest wing and heated 15-car garage.
