Wife Uses Cheating Ex-Husband to Market Home
Friday, July 27, 2012 — A woman in Beaverton, Ore., is using the story of her divorce to try to sell the bungalow home that she once shared with her now ex-husband. She recently posted a sign outside her for-sale home that reads “Husband left us for a 22-year-old. House for sale by scorned, slightly, bitter, newly single owner.”
The sign also reads “adulterers need not apply.” (However, she does include a disclaimer that anyone is welcome to submit an offer and that they do “not discriminate against any serious offer to purchase our home.”)
The woman behind the sign, Elle Zober, says she got the approval of her ex-husband before posting the sign. She says neither of them want the home to fall into foreclosure.
Zober, who was married to her husband for 10 years before their recent divorce, launched a Web site with details about the three-bedroom home as well as her and her ex-husband’s break-up.
Zober told KTSM.com that the sign is not an act of revenge.
“I just thought it was truth in advertising,” she said. “I want people to know it was a family home. It was well-loved and it was well taken care of. I want another family who will love it and care for it to move in.”
