When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. So when her husband left her for a younger woman, Elle Zober decided to use that as a ploy to sell the family home they once shared.
The scorned and bitter mother-of-two is using her ex-husband's affair with a yoga-loving 22-year-old as a quirky marketing ploy to sell the home they once shared.
Zober, 37, planted a realtor's sign out the front of her Portland, Oregon, home, informing potential buyers, and the entire neighborhood, that her three-bedroom house was on the market because of her husband's infidelity.
Husband Left Us for a 22 Year Old... House For Sale by scorned, slightly bitter, newly single OWNER,' it reads. 'Adulterers need not apply.'
The couple's 10-year marriage dissolved in April when a suspicious Ms Zober discovered text messages from the college student on her husband's cell phone, asking when he was coming over.
Seven weeks later the pair were divorced and preparations were being made for the house to be sold. It is on the market for $189,940.
'It was initially my mom's idea,' Ms Zober said of the unique For Sale sign. 'But I reworked her sign because it wasn't very nice. It was a little less PG.'
The cheating husband, and father of Ms Zober's two kids, aged seven and three, was on board with the plan.
'I spoke to him about it and he was like it's hilarious, it's genius, I think it will make people stop and look at the house,' she said.
But the realtor's sign, which Ms Zober insists was never about getting back at the man who broke her heart, has prompted all sorts of reactions.
'The responses vary from 'you should have buried him in the backyard' to 'how can you air your dirty laundry in public?' she said.
'But neither of us saw it as airing our dirty laundry. We saw it as a funny way help sell our home. It is not about revenge. What's done is done. He did what he did. We just want to sell our home. We've loved it we've taken care of it but this is the situation and that's why we're selling it.' - By DAILY MAIL REPORTER
