We’re used to seeing developers offering gym memberships and concierge services to sweeten the deal for prospective homebuyers. But giving away a $200,000 car? That’s a pretty cool perk, and it’s exactly what Arizona homebuilder Five Star Development Group is offering to move two unsold multimillion-dollar mansions. Wonder what developers will start offering if the housing market gets worse?
AP: One property, dubbed the “Old-World European Villa,” measures more than 7,800 square feet and is priced at just under $5 million. The second one, named the “Tuscan Estate,” has five bedrooms, five and a half baths and measures around 7,500 square feet. It’s listed for just under $4 million.
To sweeten the deal, Five Star said Tuesday it is offering buyers for each of the homes a free 2009 Bentley Continental GT valued at around $200,000.
For buyers who don’t dig the Bentley, Five Star is offering either a 50-hour card good for rides on a NetJets aircraft or an annual one-month vacation stay at a New Port Beach Marriott hotel for life.
Should a buyer prefer to knock off $200,000 from the price of the homes, that’s another option, said Five Star spokesman Brendan Mann.
