Boston Real Estate for Sale

This is an awesome idea! Contact me to learn more!

A Texas real estate agent looking to add more bang to her business is offering clients in law enforcement a free Glock pistol if they buy a home from her.

Julie Upton, a Houston-area real estate agent, spurned traditional buyer incentives like free gasoline cards or home improvement store gift certificates.

Instead, she placed an advertisement offering a pistol with the purchase of any home worth at least $150,000 in the city police department’s monthly publication, “Badge & Gun.”

The free guns are only for those in law enforcement, said Upton, who is married to a police officer.

In reality, this raises issues. Mainly, there are strict rules on what you may or may not give to a buyer as a gift or compensation. The idea being, if I give you $500, or something worth $500, have I enticed you, the buyer, into purchasing something you wouldn’t otherwise want.

Best to just give a $25 gift certificate.

Or, a box of bullets?
