Illinois man throws in free Tesla Model S with purchase of million dollar home


Fan of Tesla’s Model S? Do your pockets run nearly as deep as Elon Musk’s?  If so,  you might be interested in purchasing this palatial 4-bedroom abode nestled just outside the Windy City.

Looking to sweeten the deal for his $1.29 million home, an Illinois man has decided to throw in a free all-electric Tesla Model S luxury sedan. According to the seller’s website, the price of the house was recently dropped by $200,000 and will now include his reserved Model S upon purchase.

“I get it. Houses are hard to tell these days. That’s why I reduced the price by $200,000, and I’m including a brand new 2012 Tesla Model S electric car,” writes the seller about his motivation to include the popular electric sedan. “As you may know, there is a waiting list of over 6,000 on this car. My reservation is #300+ so you will get the car quick. Mind you this is not just any car, it’s one of the hottest cars to come out this decade.”

Indeed. While the seller has pointed out that this might be the first time someone has included a high-end electric car with the purchase of a house, it’s not the first time someone has tried to lure potential home buyers with the inclusion of a luxury car. Atlanta Falcons Tight End Tony Gonzalez offered up his Porsche, in a similar bargain a few years back.

Even though the seller had us at “free Tesla Model S,” the spacious 6757 sq ft home also comes fully furnished with a decked-out theater room, and 50-inch plasma TV. And if you just so happen to be shopping for a new home, and would like to get your hands on a Model S, it doesn’t get much sweeter than this.
