I had a very interesting and smart offer today…
A reader is selling her lovely horse property. She has taken it off of the MLS and her plan is to sell it unconventionally – via a mention on this blog (and others, I’m sure). If she sells her home via this blog, she will gift $10,000 to the Horse and Man Foundation!
The only stipulation is that the buyer has to mention Horse and Man to the Owner upon viewing the house or striking the deal.
She asked me if I would be interested. I said I’d have to check out her listing and see…
I looked at the house and I wanted it (lovely, 53 acres, riding trails, barn, indoor arena, great house…) so I figured someone out there would, too.
I said, “Absolutely, I will write about your lovely horse property for sale”.
I sit here, smiling, wondering if this could work… Wouldn’t that be something if one of you wanted exactly this house?!
A dream come true for everyone!
TO REITERATE, PLEASE SHARE AND SPREAD THE WORD! LET’S SEE IF WE CAN BE THE KEVIN BACON OF NON-PROFITS!!
Do you know that joke about 7 Degrees of Separation between any one person and Kevin Bacon? Well, the gist of it is that everyone knows each other – eventually.
So, I’m crossing my fingers that someone out there knows the next owner of this house (or they know someone who knows someone who knows someone who wants this house) and that that person will mention HORSE AND MAN to the present owners – and the Horse and Man Foundation will receive a huge gift, $10,000.
HERE WE GO! – please share!
Here is a personal note from the owner:
