TEWKSBURY, Mass. (AP) – A Tewksbury couple is offering an extra incentive to anyone who buys their home – they’ll toss in a yellow 1973 Volkswagen Beetle convertible.
David and Janet Frawley parked the car on their front lawn with signs on it that say: “Buy this home and I go with it.”
David Frawley tells The Sun of Lowell there are lots of houses for sale in the neighborhood and he wanted to set his apart.
So far there have been no takers for the four-bedroom, 2 1/2-bathroom Victorian that’s being offered for $559,900. But Frawley says more people have been stopping by to take a look.
The empty-nesters want a smaller place after living in the home for 25 years and raising three children. They’ve owned the car for nearly 20 years.
