Woman Offers Discount On House If Buyers Take Her Ex-Husband

Getting onto the property ladder is no mean feat, but one woman has made things easier for at least one buyer by offering to slash the price of her house if they’re willing to take on her ex-husband. 

Crystal Ball, 43, recently separated from her husband of seven years Richard Chaillou, 54, but thankfully the pair remain on good terms. 

So much so that Crystal, who got her real estate licence in 2019, decided to see if any new buyers would be up for allowing her ex to stay at one of her properties in exchange for a discount.

In the tongue-in-cheek house listing, she describes Richard as the ‘dream man’ who will whip up ‘perfect meals’ if he’s allowed to stay. 

The post reads: “Wonderfully rehabbed ex-husband up for grabs as tenant in this stunning Panama City Beach, Fl. home.

“This dream man in the kitchen is a personal chef and server cooking up perfect meals on a new stove with updated countertops you can make memories on.

“Head covering is well worn, mostly balding, like the eagles soaring in the sky above S. Lagoon steps from your massive driveway.”

As you can tell, their marriage might be over but their friendship is still going strong. 

Crystal explained that they have owned several businesses together over the years and share a son, so they are determined not to fall out. 

The licenced estate agent currently owns three properties in Panama City Beach, Florida, two of which she’s doing up to sell for a profit. 

And the mum-of-two decided to include her ex in the sale to ensure he’ll have a place to stay after the split, even promising to knock some money off the price if anyone actually goes for it.

Crystal, from Birmingham, Alabama said: "Me and Richard have had our problems but we're all sorted now and want the best for each other

"We're still close as a family, and we wanted to use our divorce to help sell the house whilst looking after our own interests as well.

"It isn't a requirement that the buyer takes Richard, but the option is there for them if they'd like to knock some money off the price of the property.

"The listing agents we've been through are trying to claim it's against the rules what were doing, and they keep removing the house from their websites.

"Taking the photos was hilarious, and I particularly like the appearance of the tiger in some of the shots.

"Hopefully someone sees the funny side in it and takes both the house and Richard off my hands sooner rather than later!"
