Man: Buy my house, get $12,000 credit for new car

A Suffern homeowner who has his house for sale is offering prospective buyers a unique perk.

George Gabrielson, who held an open house Sunday, says the buyer of his 100-year-old Prairie Avenue home will also get a $12,000 credit toward the purchase of a new car.

Gabrielson wants to sell the home without a realtor so he doesn't have to pay commission, and calls the home-car deal his very own "stimulus plan."

And for those prospective buyers not interested in a new car, Gabrielson says the $12,000 credit can be used toward other expenses such as closing costs or new furniture.

The open house will continue Monday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
